    Thereís a story you can find out there about a leading LGBTQ+ person who befriended the CEO of Chick fil and convinced him to stop with a lot of his anti-gay marriage funding.

    Engagement is the way you actually change minds.

    Using violence (government = force = violence) is what you do when you donít care about that and you just want to clobber people with a hammer.

    Which means it isnít actually about tolerance at all.

    That's a business model though, isn't it. Not originally meant to offend anyone... until someone was... offended.

    Theyíre exercising the right of any private business to be open and closed whenever they want.

    Thatís every businessí right regardless of the reason.

    WOW! That's quite a sign. I believe the cake maker should be able to refuse writing what the customer wanted, if it's against his religion or morals.

But absolutely he should be able to serve who he wants, itís a private business. Unless he is breaking the law in someway of course. In this case I donít see how he is.
    I would make the cake and use laxatives in it.

    I can see it now, post a little sign in the corner by the permits saying, ďflour price has gotten out of control, we have switched to powdered Exlax to better keep costs down. ď

    God isn't gonna mad be atcha for making a cake.

    I wish Christians would stop with this "if I do this then I'm condoning it" bullshit. No, you're not. You're not sinning.

    When in doubt follow the Golden Rule and you'll never go wrong. When it's time, tell God "I made a cake bro...that's all. No more no less.
