While I can agree in part James I have to disagree when it comes to forcing a person to expend artistic effort upon an activity or endevour they find to be against their moral code or religious tenets. In the case of Sweet Mellissa's the couple had been customers at the store / bakery for quite a while with no issues. It was only when they asked the baker to collaborate on a wedding cake that there was objection. If you've been married you know that a good craftsman or woman wants to reflect the best they can the nature of the moment. That means they have to enter into the spirit of the moment. For the baker, the florist, or the photographer that means spending time with & consulting with the couple. It also means putting your heart into the collaboration. If the craftsman or woman has moral objection to the activity then how can they honestly do that?

James said. . . You mean people who discriminate. A true conservative business owner does not discriminate. __________________ I beg to differ James. The business owners should have the right to do as they wish within the confines of their businesses. Just as those they choose not to serve should have the right to make such activities known to the public. The baker, Mellissa, did not refuse to serve the ladies in question. They'd served them before. What the baker decided was to not participate in an activity they saw as morally, & Biblically, wrong. By suing the baker the two women tried to force Mellissa to violate the tenets of her Faith. That is a violation of freedom of religion. It's also coercive bullying.

Mag it's not just the federal benefits, for me & my lady that's not even a consideration. For us it's the right to decide in extremis matters, the right to make end of life decisions & the rights of possession of the body of our oath bound partner. The rights that only next of kin may claim.

There is rather a big difference between what two, consenting, __ADULTS__ do & what an ADULT does to a child who can not give consent Foxfire.

The actual, workable solution would be for the clergy, regardless of religion or Faith to flat out refuse to sanction a union for anyone who's not of their congregation. They could use the reasoning that if the couple is not of their congregation then the clergy member could not be there to provide council to the couple if times get rough.
