Interesting: Maggie Gallagher says she probably *would* bake a cake for a gay wedding

by Jeremy Hooper

Even though the organization she co-founded has spent the better part of the past two years rushing to make victims out of any vendor who wishes to flout his or her local nondiscrimination laws so that they don't have to serve gay customers, Maggie Gallagher says that she herself probably could bake a gay couple's wedding cake:

I just don't get it. Maggie is pretty sure that she could do it, so long as she gets a priest's approval. And Maggie surely thinks of herself as a godly woman who is following the faith. But yet she still thinks there's "no way a good Christian woman" could carry out the job? I'm really not understanding the varying standard here. Is there some papal pastry letter with which I am unfamiliar?

Either way, the choice is neither Maggie's nor Melissa's if either plans to hang up a shingle and purport to do business with the public in compliance with nondiscrimination laws that include LGBT people. A public business is not a church fellowship hall.
