Now that one problem has been solved and that now there will be a boom in business for divorce lawyers.
The next problem needs to be resolved and one that has to be equable to all parties concerned.
in his journal entry was partially correct on the founding document of our country, the original intent was not to have a state church, the Church of England which was mainly set up after Henry the VIII already used up his annulment free cards from Rome. But he was in error was on what constitutes a theocracy. Iran is a theocracy, even though they have an "elected" body of government, with the Ayatollahs running the show. The Constitution was framed by our Founding Fathers on Judeo-Christian principles and on the principles of religious freedom unlike what was going on in France during the Revolution where after the King was overthrown to keep the chaos of the Revolution going they turned to the Church by burning and pillaging and setting up altars to "reason." Ironic, yet the still had their Reign of Terror.
Where I'm going with this is that we need to decide where to go.
For sake of argument lets assume Customer B is gay.
Owner A is sole owner of a bakery. Customer B comes in and buys a box of donuts and makes the purchase.
Now same characters different setup
Owner A is sole owner of a bakery. Customer B come in and orders a wedding cake. Owner A asking about the particulars of the order. Customer B said it is for a same-sex ceremony. Owner A, tells Customer B that they can't in good conscience because it contradicts their Catholic principles (that being the act of homosexuality is viewed as a sin not the person them-self being one) and is willing to give the person a list of bakers who are more accommodating.
Now the examples above show that owner A did not know (or care) that Customer B is gay and still sold the donuts with no problem. Now when the cake being ordered that is where the conflict arises.
Under normal circumstances Customer B would have been understanding and thankful that Owner A gave them an alternative. But since given the current climate especially in states like California, the state would step in forced the owner to accommodate everyone or risked being shutdown. People fail to realize that a private business has the right to exclude anyone for any justifible reason.
Example would be if a owner of a coffee shop sees a homeless person loitering. Since they are not a paying customer the owner has a right and a duty to have the vagrant removed by the police if necessary. Unless you're Starschmucks! Howard Schultz fashions himself as a bloody social worker. And he went to business school... why?
