    You are mixing multiple issues. My post is pretty clear what I mean. It is inconsistent with the text with which the deeply held belief is kept.

    So, I think he and anybody using the Bible as justification for that sort of view is being a hypocrite based on the teachings of Jesus. As I said above, Jesus never commented on homosexuality but made many comments about greed and economics. Things that are often celebrated under capitalism. Even a comment about it being nearly impossible for them to see the Kingdom of God. I imagine most conservative Christians are all about that and do not seek to accumulate wealth...

    So, yes. They are either horribly misled about things that define what it means to be Christian or they are using it as cover for things they already think. And the person may not even know they are doing it.


You only answered my first of two questions. For the first, that yes, you consider the baker a bigot. Now what about my second: Should the baker have been forced to make the cake?





Except that is not what I said in that response. I think that view is bigoted. If he is as a person or not I cannot say but that view is. And that a mock religious justification was given.

You never addressed any of the points I have made really that are potential problems.

I am not sure you can force anybody to make anything for something else. The guy took his recourse and stopped making things for everybody. He deeply believed what he was doing but his religious grounding was flawed. Just like the one Kentucky clerk who decided that her religious belief was more important than the law was.
