Oregon bakery admits truth: They just don't like homosexuality, want to 'save' gay people

by Jeremy Hooper

If Sweet Cakes by Melissa had any semblance of a court challenge (hint: they didn't), they just lessened it. In a recently posted Facebook comment, the Orgeon bakery that supposedly denied only a same-sex wedding (as opposed to a gay customer) just admitted that it was the customers' homosexuality itself that did them in:

Let me repeat again: They never had any case to begin with, since you can't just up and flout fairly enacted nondiscrimination laws simply because you don't agree with them. But with this, they just invalidated most every claim that their defenders try to use to support (/fundraise off of) them. They are admitting that it was about the person and not just the event.

That being so, can we now move on to actual debates? This one is over.
