    i hope he becomes a better person.

    "The Colorado Civil Rights Commission has rejected a Denver-area bakery owner’s appeal of an judge’s earlier ruling that the bakery owner, Jack Phillips, “unlawfully discriminated against a gay couple by refusing to sell them a wedding cake” last July.

    The commission affirmed the prior ruling that found Phillips in violation of the Colorado Anti-Discrimination Act. The commission also ordered a change of policy, staff training, and quarterly reporting to confirm that the bakery is not turning away customers due to sexual orientation."

    He won't change squat. He just announced that in light of the ruling, he's no longer making wedding cakes for anyone. Take that, fags!

    Here is the story about the bakery quitting its wedding-cake business entirely:
    http://www.cbsnews.com/news/colorado-baker-to-stop-making-wedding-cakes-after-losing-discrimination-case/

    All the bakery's wedding cake business will simply go to its competitors, so it's hard to see this as anything but a loss of revenue for the anti-gay baker.

    The moral to this story: if you are so bigoted that you can't do business with entire classes of people, maybe America is not the country for you to start a business in.

    This story reminds me of the homophobic baker in Oregon last year who refused to bake a cake for two lesbian ladies. At first the little baker reported a surge in business from supporters. That surge was short lived. Next we read the baker had lost so much business that he and his wife weren't making enough money to pay the rent on their rented bakery, so they moved their shrinking operation home to their own kitchen. Last we read, they let their one employee go, and were pretty much starving with a next to nothing business. Evidently, not many people wanted to do business with the homophobic baker. The market corrected the 'problem' itself. What people are finding out is that there are plenty of choices in the market place. If you aren't happy with one shop owner - - there are plenty more. Who would want a cake from this kind of baker anyway? I'm not interested in any ruling or new law that would force this guy to sell me a cake. I already have a choice NOT to patronize this kind of guy's business. Again - let the market take care of these homophobic people. Let the market starve them out of business.

    Yes, why would you want a service from someone who hates you? Tell them to stick their cakes up their asses, and go somewhere else where you're much more likely to be treated right.

    yeah this is a stupid overreach by the militant gay storm troopers,

    in a free market society, we vote with our dollars, let the bigots identify themselves so we can boycott.

    The last figures i heard bandied about were that the amount of new gay wedding business was going to add $1b, yeah billion to the wedding planner industrial complex, so anybody who doesn't want a piece of that action can kiss my hairy gay ass, i dont' want a judge to reprogram them. monitoring that is a waste of my tax dollars.

    I dunno. At work we had to do an online training thing for sexual harassment every year. It took about an hour and you couldn't rush through it. I think there was some rule or law that said we had to do an hour's sexual harassment training every year.

    This seems quite similar so I don't think it's all that bad.

    its a good to see the state government sportive of the gay community. What are they to do; put the guy in jail? The bigot paid fines and worst of all his lawyer.

    Hm. That assumes everyone lives in a big city where there are multiple options. I grew up in a town of 4000 people and one bakery. what would I have done if they'd said no?

    I don't think the story you cite is true. It sounds like a cross between a gay revenge fantasy and a con talking point about how the market always delivers justice.

    Nonfactual stories aside, this is a tough issue. Would we condone a business who openly stated that they only serve Caucasians?

    With their attitudes, they'd be out of business before long. Starvation is a big motivator. Re-education camps are too soviet a response, where is the line drawn? A boycott of the place would easily suffice.

    you'd do what you already did for 100 other reasons , MOVE.

    anyway even in small towns, businesses will soon wake up to the idea that gay money is the same color as str8's.

    just a matter of time

    apparently he was never adequately socialized as a young adult. I think its nice that a government takes an interest in his further education. Tax money well spent tho I would have taken away his business license and been done with it.

    Where do you draw the line? It's the same as forcing someone into anti-gay therapy, or whatever it's called.

    there is president set here:
    -you get a speeding ticket(s), they make you take a driving class

    nice to see there are alternatives to fines, prison time or community service. dont think they will make you do anti-gay therapyicon_wink.gif


    If the local or state government gives you a business license they want you to use it with in their guide lines. Your playing their game and in return they give you an environment and tools you can conduct business in. Like health inspections, tax id accounts, unemployment services etc, methods of incorporation ...

    Just bear in mind that you have to be very careful with this, because if extreme religious politicians got in power, they could easily try to "re-educate" us. Always look at the reverse, and exercise restraint. Gung-Ho is for fanatics or emergencies only.
