    For better or worse, the courts never got the chance to weigh in on this one.

    Gays think forcing bakeries to make rainbow cupcakes is a huge step forward for the cause. :lol:

    I get your sarcasm, but there is still a salient point here that seems to be applied inconsistently. I've been told by many neoliberals here (and I agree) that you cannot tell someone else what they are allowed to find offensive. But in this case, that's exactly what is happening. The bakery owners are being told that they are not allowed to find homosexuality offensive. But then again hypocrisy is the hallmark of neoliberalism.

    Your expectation of others is what is offensive.
