Bakery that notoriously refused to bake gay wedding cake is out of business. Good for them for standing up for their principles! http://s.oregonlive.com/cUxHHgR

But it's always heartening to witness the failure of smug bigoted asshóles that wield their religion like a sword as they stand in judgment of others. Schadenfreude indeed, lmao over here.

Yet another source of lulz for me is that all that support money, half a million I think, was spent keeping attorneys employed. Bravo! Love to see suckers guaranteeing full employment for lawyers rather than conduct their reprehensible business.

My position in all this is that if you own a business that provides a service to the general public, then you cannot refuse service based on sexual orientation, but you can refuse content.

no, haven't read that. Anyway it's not an outrageous amount. Judge may have awarded punitive damages to send a message to potential future offenders or to punish repeat offenses. (Latter was the McDonald's hot coffee case.)

In patent law for example, if you infringe unintentionally you pay for damages caused. But if intentional infringement is proven, judge awards TRIPLE those damages. that's a federal statute.

Just an example, not really relevant here, to show you how the law treats the damages calculation. there are different types of damages, direct, consequential, punitive etc. What applies depends on what's legally available vs. what can be proven.

makes sense then...I think in the "bakery" example, a heterosexual person should think about how they'd feel if a bakery refused them service

0eda15e8a4a685a0722949782c90e863

it would hurt, it would be frustrating, it wouldn't be right.... a place of commerce should not refuse service to anyone who isn't asking for something illegal

In the McDonald's case, they were able to show multiple past incidents of severe burns caused by uber hot coffee spills, with no action even attempted to simply deal with that as any of us might. Big punitive damages award made the news.

Some of the most tolerant places for gays (Holland comes to mind) have been completely turned upside down by that kinda thing. Sad really. Gotta respect the gays who actually talk about it because it's politically incorrect af to discuss.

Drew, failure to cite Muslim hatred of this or that doesn't mean it isn't there. I'm not Google after all. The facts in front of us are relevant: right? This hatred was specifically Christian hatred.

Anyway while we're on the subject I have to say the forced acceptance of gay marriage has not brought about suffering to that institution or to society as a whole. Yawn, right? Didn't recently used to be.

Skål, whose team is doing very surprisingly well!, I read now that homosexuality may be epigenetic. that would explain the persistent occurrence, some in families, without a clear genetic link
