Gender Neutral Birthday Cakes?
What is next? Gender Neutral Birthday Cakes, like the extinct “Boy Scouts of America”? The idiocy continues.
The stupidity of some people ceases to amaze me. Why would you want to do business with someone who does not want your business is the simple question. The entitlement generation now seems to feel inclined to argue their point no matter how stupid and narcissistic it is and the lawyers jump on board.
It seems to me that independent businesses under the first amendment have the right to serve who they choose to do business with. That’s the common sense approach. As I recall growing up in the 1970’s, there were hand written signs in windows along beach cafes and small businesses “NO shoes, NO Shirt, No service”, and “We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone”. Common sense prevailed, but common sense seems to continually get thrown out the window.
Here we are 40 years later, and the American Taxpayer has to pay for this gay birthday cake argument nonsense to be argued all the way to the highest court in the land, the US Supreme court. The Supreme Court ruled overwhelmingly 7-2 that the business Masterpiece Workshop was NOT required to bake a Birthday Cake for a Gay Couple.
Gay Marriage used to be illegal, now it isn’t. Ok. But for the right of an independent business to choose who they do business with for their own religious reasons was upheld in a common sense decision, that cost taxpayers ton’s of money, sadly.
Of course, Nancy Pelosi, the loudmouth senile old bat who should have retired years ago has to weigh in immediately. Many Gay Rights activists argued of course that this represents taking away their rights, gnawing at the fabric of their existence.
Wake up, common sense for all. Live and let live. Do business with who you choose to do so. Nobody has a right to force you to do business, it’s not an obligation. The Baker probably could have avoided the mess entirely by simply by manipulating the situation. In order to have the unwanted customer simply go away, the Bake could have offered them a delivery date way out in time of perhaps say a month delay and the gay couple would have simply gone elsewhere to get their gay cake baked. End of story, by fighting it all the way to the Supreme Court and bringing up the religious belief just added fuel to the fire.
