Do you think Dunkin' Donuts has the right to stop selling food that they make over and over again simply because the customer is gay?Inspiration is a fickle thing. Especially in the art world...For starters...Yes they are. Whether you like it or not. Crafting is an art. But go ahead and amuse me... Show me how a baker isn't an artist...No the baker is not an 'artist' in any relevant sense.The difference is that a baker is an artist, and as such has to craft the item desired by the customer. A retailer is distributing a ready made product, sold commercially on the open market. Wal-Mart, nor Dicks, are being asked to create anything. If the queers wanted to buy a ready made cake offered by the bakery; they might have a legit claim. But no law should force anyone to create an artistic work. That would be like forcing a child photographer to take pictures of you fucking your wife...a better question is where to you stand on it? Can bakeries discriminate if Walmart can discriminate?
The Oregon bakery case was precipitated by the sellers refusing to do business with the customers simply because they were gay,
not because of any artwork issues.
