  1. You know, there is a fairly obvious and easily obtained resolution for all these people who can’t seem to buy the cake they want: buy the cake, then decorate it themselves/pay someone else to decorate it. Forcing someone to participate in an activity they find objectionable merely because they run a business seems to toss on its head the ideals the founding fathers sought.

  2. Of course it does. You’re emotionally stable/mature.

    You don’t see me starting lawsuits to get people to stop commenting on how neither my husband nor myself were sterilized when we hit 2.1 children, and all we do to “deserve” that is walk around in public with the children.
