Baker Forced to Bake Wedding Cake for KKK Themed Wedding

Posted by Troy on 5th June 2014 in Current Events

A baker recently rejected an order to do a wedding cake for a KKK themed wedding.  He said that he thought what the KKK promoted was wrong, against his religious beliefs, and he would not be a part of it.  The courts have ruled that he has no right to deny service to someone based on their beliefs, must attend sensitivity training (i.e., re-education), and bake that cake.  Also, he will be subject to government supervision for the next two years to make sure that he has not turned anyone one away due to their beliefs.  Outraged?

Well, this happened.  Except for the fact that it was for a gay wedding and not a KKK wedding.  So, what’s the difference?  “Well, we LIKE one group and we don’t like the other!  Duuuuh!”  I find that this compulsory part of the law is based merely on public opinion and not any real source of right and wrong and denying or not denying.  You can still deny service to people…just as long as it’s a group that the Left hates.

I personally believe it is up the shop owner to determine who they serve.  If they don’t want to serve you, take your business elsewhere.  What does it matter to you if they are choosing to forgo the revenue?  Better yet, post your disappointment.  If he wants to have that belief, that’s his business.  If it costs him money and possibly his business, that will be a test of his faith.  However, this isn’t about a wedding cake.  This is about the satisfaction of forcing someone.  They could go get a wedding cake from somewhere else.  It would be less hassle.  Of course, they wouldn’t have the satisfaction and the attention they got from shoving their beliefs down another person’s throat.

I believe you should be able to deny service.  I think you should be able to allow smoking on your property if you want.  I believe in property rights and in the rights of the individual to set who they will work with.  Only a fool would compel service from someone.  Could you imagine forcing a dentist to work on your teeth if they didn’t want to?  Oh dear, it seems I didn’t use enough Novocaine!  Oh well!!!!!

That is going to be one bland, ugly cake…

Long Live The Constitution!
