And Now, Some More Gay News
The NFL had threatened to pull a future Super Bowl from the state if Brewer had signed it into law.
This bill would have made it legal for business owners, like bakers, to deny service to someone if they disagreed with their lifestyle. To Christians and Catholics, it was a religious freedom bill and to the homosexuals, it was supposedly viewed as state-sponsored discrimination.
For the rest of us, this bill was viewed as a 'freedom' issue. You can bake a cake for anyone or refuse to do so for any reason you feel.
Now that you cannot refuse to bake a cake for those you have a moral difference with, your bushy-tailed pundit wonders:
Does this mean that a gay baker can be forced to bake a cake for Fred Phelps and the congregation of The Westboro Baptist Church? What if Fred demanded that the cake decorator put "God Hates Sodomites" in large, red letters on top of the cake?
Can a Muslim extremist caterer be forced to cater a Bar Mitzvah?
