    It's not about your product. It is about public accommodation laws and anti discrimination laws and civil rights laws that were broken when this couple refused to sell to a portion of the public. The government does not recognize discrimination as a religious practice.

    Of course individuals can refuse to pay income tax? What can happen to them?

    As soon as one public official is threatened with fines for contempt of court, the whole house of cards will crumble.

    So you'd force a muslim to make a gay wedding cake too?.[/QUOTE]

    I would insist that a Muslim business comply with the law just like any other business.

    No special exemptions for Christians or Muslims or Atheists.

    If you are offering a service in public association, then the government will recognize your discrimination to customers as a religious right.

    Did the Governor of Arizona ask for militia from other states to come to the defense of Bundy?

    You may need to. He lost again in court yesterday.

    It doesn't help when you try to intimate the judge in your case by having his wife stalked and investigated. But that kind of thuggery is just the kind of guy sheriff Joe is.

    JFISH123 SAID:

    “No I would not want to force Muslims to make a Muhammad cake.”

    Nonsense.

    No one is being ‘forced’ to do anything.

    Businesses are subject to all manner of necessary, proper, and Constitutional regulatory policy, public accommodations laws are no different, just as business owners aren’t being ‘forced’ to pay a minimum wage and aren’t being ‘forced’ to ensure safe working conditions for employees.
