    The bakers weren't exercising freedom of religion. They were discriminating against gays using a bogus claim of religion.

    I personally don't see how anyone who claims to be Christian can discriminate against others on the grounds they're sinners. Jesus was really clear when he stopped the stoning of an adulterer: Let he who is without sin among you cast the first stone. He also told His followers to obey the law.

    I believe you are free to worship as you you see fit, but you are not free to discriminate against others and use religion as an excuse.
