    I actually kind of agree with @-:Undertaker:-; here.
    If someone doesnít wish to provide a service they donít have to. Granted, the fuss kicked up could have been mellowed by all parties, but you should have the right to refusal based on personal preference. Itíll upset people, but why would the purchasing party want a cake made by homophobes? Get move onto the next place and give them your money instead.
    As a gay person actually getting married, Iím always weary and make sure itís known when enquiring about wedding related things that it will be a same sex marriage. Iíve only had one thing come back and say they werenít willing to help, and that was for religious reasons. Iím not bitter, they were pleasant enough to explain their case, and I moved on. Discrimination happens for a variety of reasons, and we are never going to combat it in this century, so pick your battles is what I think. Itís not worth it when neither party is happy at the end of it all.

    I’m so glad it went in the bakers favour in the end. They shouldn’t be forced to bake a cake, and their business/life shouldn’t of been intruded because a couple threw their toys out the pram. If I went into a bakery and asked for a lesbian themed wedding cake and the baker told me it was against his religious beliefs but he’d happily sell me any other cakes then I’d simply respect his lifestyle choice and shop elsewhere for my needs. Now, if the baker refused to serve someone at all and kicked them out the shop because of age, sex, sexual orientation or whatever then thats a whole different ball game! My favourite quote in the media was “You can’t force a painter to paint something they do not want to paint”

    IMO ofc.

For a evangelical Christian to make a gay marriage cake, it is equivalent to you having to make a Nazi gay in terms of views and not being forced to contribute to something you see as evil or wrong.

    To add to this. They didn't refuse to bake the cake, they refused to attend the wedding and serve the cake...
