Where the Gay Marriage Crowd Lost Me

Posted by Troy on 4th May 2015 in Current Events

The baker that refused to bake a cake for a lesbian wedding is being ordered to pay the couple $135,000 in damages for mental suffering.  Let’s let that sink in.

“I won’t bake you a cake.”

“Why?”

“I don’t like you.”

“Ow!  That hurt my feelings.  Give me $135,000.”

What kinda of p****a** people are we raising in this country?  That’s how hurt you were by this?  Really?

Bear in mind, this is no longer about their business.  The court has said that the owners PERSONALLY owe this.  They cannot file bankruptcy for their business and just end their business.  Nope.  They are being destroyed financially.

Also bear in mind that this was NEVER about a cake.  The lesbians in question would have had worse suffering if they had gotten the cake they wanted.  They wanted to be denied so that they could have this court case.  If all they wanted was a wedding cake, they could have gone to pretty much any other baker in town and gotten a cake.  It would have been far less trouble.  This is about forcing others to their will.  It is also about the attention they crave.  This is why I predict this to be one of the first gay divorces you will see as well.  It is about the spectacle.  It’s not about the relationship.

So that is where they lost me.  They are willing to destroy someone just because they can.  If this is how the pro-crowd is going to conduct themselves, they have lost my support.  It is sickening and abhorrent.

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!

The Royal Wedding

Posted by Troy on 29th April 2011 in Current Events

A lot of people have complained that the Royal Wedding is a distraction from the real issues.

I disagree.  There are countless attacks on our freedoms and ways of life.  It is impossible to know and defend against them all.  Quite honestly, you have to live your life.  You have to enjoy life.  You have enjoy the moments, not to mention just taking care of the day to day stuff.

Enjoy the wedding if you want to.  May the couple enjoy a long, happy life together.  Never, ever, take life too seriously.  There’s no real point.
