Sad!  We just had a major hurricane and another one is on its way.  Little Kim is developing missiles that will head our way and Putin Fu#ked with our election and all you are concerned about is stupid cakes and spreading fake news about the former 1st lady.  You are really stupid.

No shit for brains YOU are the really Stupid one for still believing the FAKE NEWS of Russia messing with our Elections. Just admit it Hillary was a piece of shit Crooked candidate that only hardcore Brain dead Liberal pukes like yourself voted for. Even though I didn't vote for Trump he at least is keeping his word to clean out the swamp starting with Crooked Hillary.

The Trump administration told the Supreme Court Thursday that the First Amendment entitles a Colorado baker to turn away gay couples seeking wedding cakes



From OP

Presumably then, the judiciary will quite rightly tell the administration to shove it's worthless opinion up its arse, and fuck off while it's doing so?



Except the opinions aren't worthless.  Nor are any of the other opinions of interested parties that often file briefs in all sorts of cases.  Our system allows for those that are not a party to the case to file a brief and present an opinion regarding the case for the court to consider.  Even at the supreme court level.

Why wouldn't a competent court welcome all the opinion they can when deciding how to rule on a case?

This allows pseudo -libs with ardent Conservative or even authoritarian proclivites to associate themselves with his ilk, kinda like the Baader -Meinhof gang robbing the intellectual robes of democratic Socialism.

What?

I'm not the least bit hateful, all I want is my constitutional right not to betray my religious beliefs and spiritual conscience. As a Christian and a cake decorator these Bible verses tell me I shouldn't participate in other people sins... I shouldn't be forced to choose between being able to feed my family and betraying my religious beliefs. Not wanting to bake a cake that will be for an activity that my God has told me is an abomination to him is isn't showing hate, it's hateful otoh to try and force me to associate or put my name on something that God has rebuked and told me he's against. 



1 Timothy 5:22  Do not be hasty in the laying on of hands, and do not share in the sins of others. Keep yourself pure.

Leviticus 19:17Do not hate a fellow Israelite in your heart. Rebuke your neighbor frankly so you will not share in their guilt.


I believe that same argument was used by draft dodgers to get out of military service in WWII, Korea and Vietnam.  It didn't work....

The real issue is forced association not freedom of religion.  They should be able to refuse business for any reason.  Pulling out the religious persecution card is nothing more than conservative identity victimhood, wanting special rights that should be available to all.

Anyone that thinks that boycots or protests don't work isn't paying attention to the effects of social media.

They need to get rid of this "Right to discriminate because of religion" crap.

I see the religious angle as more of a means of avoiding forced association using the tools the government makes available.  There is no enumerated right to be kept from forced association.  But there is one for religious liberty.

So, yes, it is a form of identity politics, but one specifically called for in the constitution.  But they truly are victims, as are a great many non-religious people, I'm sure.
