Well most modernized countries when you want operate a public business you have to apply for a business license by the local laws and regulatory authorities.
If a business owner is going to accept and welcome all people, must he then accept and welcome and willingly promote all events that those people partake in?
The answer is NO
For the millionth time:
Gay marriage is an event/activity, a thing you do. Not a person...
- Phillips never turned any customer away due to their sexual orientation.
- The two gay men, David Mullins and Charlie Craig, were welcome to purchase any item in the store.
- They could have bought all the brownies and cookies and pies that their hearts and stomachs desired. They could have even bought a wedding cake.
- Their romantic interests were of no concern to Jack Phillips.
- He was not discriminating on that basis or any basis.
Jack Phillips did not refuse service to gay people. He refused service to a gay wedding. He declined to make a special cake — a work of art — for a particular occasion that he determined to be morally objectionable.
