    I think the salient point is that there's a difference between choosing to want an I Love Sluts cake, and being genetically programmed from before birth to want an I Love Sluts cake. I can choose not to honor your choice, but if you can't help but love sluts, I can't discriminate against that.

    And as one that couldn't help but love Sluts because I was born that way, I expect those to serve me hot slutty blonde girls daily.

    The Religious Freedom Restoration Act says the government cannot "substantially burden" a person's ability to follow their religious beliefs

    It seems Rastafarians have a pretty good case that they should be able to legally smoke marijuana?

    Ms O'Connor has a right to support the law. Those who disagree have the right to not patronize her business.

    All true. It's a good thing that enterprising reporter went out and unearthed that business-owner's latent bigotry and ensured that it was properly publicized, otherwise right-minded, well-meaning residents of Walkerton might have unintentionally supported their evil discriminatory viewpoint by buying their pizza.

    Hooray for full disclosure.

    Poor people. They probably have a few cases of Pabst to go with it.

    The type of people that stretch their ears to the point where Lexington Steele would say "damn this is loose."

    That was my first reaction also. Read the article I posted above though, the pizza shop has never had any requests for wedding catering and had no expectations of catering any weddings of any kind. The media whores targeted this establishment and made this whole story playing both sides against eachother for ratings. Fuck ABC57

    The real test will be when two "religious freedoms" are competing for the same social resources.

    Ive decided that Im a fan of this law, not because of the gay or religion aspect, but because of the general chaos this is creating. Some of us just like to watch the world burn!

    Best answer in the thread. They should all go back the drawing board in my opinion.
