I’m finding the cake thing, as it stands, kind of a non-issue.

I agree with the ruling. The couple were not seeking a cake off the shelf, they were seeking a custom cake for this event. Obviously I don’t agree with their views, but I agree as business owners we should have the freedom to not endorse things we don’t agree with.

If Trump’s campaign came into my T-shirt shop I can’t deny them buying shirts off the rack, but I do have the freedom to deny them if they asked for me to monogram them campaign shirts.

I think more people are on the streets of DC watching this hockey game than were there for the inauguration.

Also, apparently Manafort has been tampering with witnesses.

So there’s that.

If a black couple came into your store, would you deny them if they wanted custom t shirts? Or cakes?

Being gay is not a choice. Denying somebody something because of the way they were born should not be protected under the guise of religious freedom.

Hey, anitram, I heard a radio piece recently about the student demonstrations of May 1967.

You know I agree with you, but this isn’t a matter of choice. You know that I know it’s not a choice.

A business chose their personal beliefs and denied to design and build them something. I can choose to design and build for anyone I want.

i'm very much looking forward to seeing ovechkin lift the cup.

sorry vegas fans, you need to go through some heartbreak before you get to win one.

i get where BVS is coming from. if a landscape artist who believes in equality just happens to have a fan who's a KKK member, the artist should have the right to refuse to paint a burning cross if the KKK guy tries to commission a painting, although KKK guy should also be able to buy a normal painting of a random desert or whatever. in this case from what i understand the state commission was extremely biased against the baker in its ruling so the supreme court was essentially overturning that judgement, rather than setting any legal precedent really.

So far the people I've heard cast it as a narrow opinion

What happened today with this Nationalist rally was really, really terrifying to me.

The replacement for the Eagles' visit, or was there some other Nationalist rally today?
