    Participating in and endorsing an abomination. That's why the baker could sell them anything they wanted and maintain a business relationship with them but not bake the wedding cake. It was never a judgment on homosexuality, but a refusal to endorse and participate in homosexuality.

    You are not participating in the wedding, they have already taken their vows
    I can see providing a ring.....but a cake?

    If God considers homosexuality a sin, let him punish those getting married
    It is not up to bakers

    Again, the bakers aren't punishing gays. That's not their motivation. They are protecting themselves from eternal damnation (Jude 1 Romans 1 NT).

    However, the lesbians were punishing the Christians in that they knew they could go elsewhere but chose instead to force a Christian couple out of business as an act of dogmatic-dominance display. Which is fodder for a countersuit.

    If the Baker wanted to protect himself from damnation then he should follow the law- like Romans 13 tells him to.

    I am pretty sure baking a wedding cake is not a homosexual act.

    The bakers were refusing to follow the law.

    Which of course Romans 13 tells Christians to do.

    No God would send people to hell for baking a cake

    Why would you worship such a God?

    Personally, I don't give a rat's ass WHAT they're doing when they decide to refuse service. I'm still very hung up on the fact that no one has the right to force someone else to do something for them.

    Nobody is forcing you to open a business

    If you can't follow the laws....you don't belong in business

    Then it appears the "religious exemption" is a load of crap which doesn't understand the nature of religion and morality at all. He believes what he believes, and it's HIS choice what those beliefs are, without them being subject to anyone else's approval. Anything that takes beliefs out of the realm of individual choice and puts them up for public approbation is wrong at that point.
