"outcry against said church for being backwards".......Oxymoron
And? The baker can't refuse based on their sexual orientation. Now, if the couple had wanted a penis or something similar, the guy could refuse that as long as he hasn't ever done something like that for someone else.People can believe whatever they want. People can worship how they want, as long as someone isn't hurt. But owning a bakery is not a form of worship so he is not protected by the 1st Ammendment in that case.
Bullchit. Sol worships the bakery he chooses to frequent.
Dear RMM,Shut up, stupid.
I was thinking, we could get his contact info and send him a gay ISIS penis cake for his next birthday...
gay+penis = redundant (unless I'm missing something about RMM)gay+ISIS = contradictory
I just checked the calendar.MM's birfday is a lil over a month away...August 11.
http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2014/06/03/baker-forced-to-make-gay-wedding-cakes-undergo-sensitivity-training-after.htmlA family owned bakery has been ordered to make wedding cakes for gay couples and guarantee that its staff be given comprehensive training on Colorado’s anti-discrimination laws after the state’s Civil Rights Commission determined the Christian baker violated the law by refusing to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple.Jack Phillips, the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, in Lakewood, Colorado was directed to change his store policies immediately and force his staff to attend the training sessions. For the next two years, Phillips will also be required to submit quarterly reports to the commission to confirm that he has not turned away customers based on their sexual orientation.Nicolle Martin, an attorney with Alliance Defending Freedom, called the ruling Orwellian and said they are considering an appeal.“They are turning people of faith into religious refugees,” Martin told me. “Is this the society that we want to live in – where people of faith are driven out of business?”Martin said it was “truly frightening” that Phillips will be forced to submit quarterly reports to the government disclosing whether he turned away any wedding cake business.“There will be some reporting requirements so that Jack can demonstrate that he doesn’t exercise his belief system anymore – that he has divested himself of his beliefs,” she said.He will also be required to create new policies and procedures for his staff.“We consider this reporting to be aimed at rehabilitating Jack so that he has the right thoughts,” Martin said. “That’s offensive to everything America stands for.”Phillips, who is celebrating his 40th year in business this week, told me he’s not going to create any new policies.“My old ones are pretty adequate as far as I’m concerned,” he said. “I don’t plan on giving up my faith and changing because of that.”The controversy started in 2012 when a gay couple asked Phillips to make their wedding cake. Phillips politely declined, saying he could not make a cake promoting a same-sex ceremony because of his faith. He offered to make them any other baked item they wanted.Charlie Craig and David Mullins filed a complaint with the Colorado Civil Rights Commission alleging they were discriminated against because of their sexual orientation. For the record, same-sex marriage is against the law in Colorado.The commission affirmed a civil court’s ruling that the bakery cannot discriminate against persons in a public place based on sexual orientation.“You can have your beliefs, but you can’t hurt other people at the same time,” Commission Chairwoman Katina Banks told The Denver Channel.ACLU attorney Amanda Goad, who heads up the organization’s LBGT group, heralded the ruling.“Religious freedom is undoubtedly an important American value, but so is the right to be treated equally under the law free from discrimination,” she said in a statement.
No one read that
I read the first one to find mention of the penis and vagina cakes he mentioned a baker being forced to produce. I'll let you guess how that search went.

A new bill in Tennessee seeks to "protect" churches and clergy from performing same-sex marriages.http://news.yahoo.com/tennessee-drafting-pastor-protection-act-supreme-court-ruling-174159086.htmlThere's more stupidity in the article, but that's the gist of it. Way to waste time on a completely unnecessary bill with no practical use whatsoever. I thought the people who would go for this nonsense were against government waste.
An educator's fault, no doubt.
