The reasoning behind this is that the state has the right to tell businesses not to discriminate on terms defined by the state because businesses have transaction tax privileges (business licenses) from the state and counties. In turn people are forced to obtain business licenses in order to legally conduct business.

When did people lose the freedom to do commerce without a business license?

If the state keeps up this kind of nonsense the obvious incentive is to conduct commerce without a business license and to collect no sales taxes (which is what a transaction tax privilege license is all about). In short: go dark, economically speaking.

Only the GOVERNMENT is allowed to discriminate. Let's try to adjust to the 21st Century please.

Christian Baker Again Under Fire for Refusing Transgender Cake Despite Supreme Court Win
By Tyler O'Neil August 14, 2018

In this March 10, 2014 file photo, Masterpiece Cakeshop owner Jack Phillips cracks eggs into a cake batter mixer (AP Photo/Brennan Linsley, File)

In June, the Supreme Court decided the case Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, issuing a powerful rebuke to the Colorado Civil Rights Commission for its "religious hostility" toward Christian baker Jack Phillips. Phillips had refused to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding, and the commission had compared his decision to religious arguments in favor of the Ku Klux Klan and Nazism.

Now, the commission is again going after Phillips for declining to create a custom cake — this time a cake celebrating transgenderism. On Tuesday night, Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), the Christian law firm that represented Phillips before the Supreme Court and helped him gain an important 7-2 victory, filed a federal lawsuit against the commission to forestall action against Phillips.

"The state of Colorado is ignoring the message of the U.S. Supreme Court by continuing to single out Jack for punishment and to exhibit hostility toward his religious beliefs," ADF Senior Vice President of U.S. Legal Division Kristen Waggoner declared in a statement. “Even though Jack serves all customers and simply declines to create custom cakes that express messages or celebrate events in violation of his deeply held beliefs, the government is intent on destroying him—something the Supreme Court has already told it not to do."

So a bunch of demagogic leftists are trolling the baker in order to keep him tied up in court? :roll:

What kind of cake "celebrates transgenderism"?

Does it has an appendage that sticks out and then it is ceremoniously cut off?

"OK, who wants the trans-gendered appendage?"


That is a terrible thing to be going after the guy again after a 7-2 smackdown by SCOTUS. His legal team needs to bring actions against his tormentors personally.

I wonder if he could create a really offensive cake that legally meet the demands of the perps?

The Supreme Court rules differently on the other side of the pond:

Gay Marriage Cake: UK Supreme Court Rules in Favour of Christian Bakers

The UK’s Supreme Court ruled in favour of Northern Irish Christian bakers who declined to bake and decorate a cake with a pro-gay marriage message, with owners heralding the decision as a victory for free speech.

Britain’s highest court ruled Wednesday morning that it was not discriminatory for Ashers Bakery, run by Daniel and Amy McArthur, to refuse to produce the cake with the slogan “Support Gay Marriage” because it was the message of the case that they objected to, not the sexual orientation of the customer, the BBC reports.

President of the Supreme Court Lady Hale said of the decision arrived at by the five justices that the McArthurs “would have refused to make such a cake for any customer, irrespective of their sexual orientation”.

“Their objection was to the message on the cake, not to the personal characteristics of [customer, Gareth] Lee.”

“Accordingly, this court holds that there was no discrimination on the ground of the sexual orientation of Mr Lee,” Lady Hale ruled.

“We are grateful to the judges and especially to God. We are particularly pleased the Supreme Court judges emphatically accepted what we’ve said all along. We did not turn down the order because of the person who made it but because of the message itself,” Mr McArthur said outside of London’s High Court following the ruling.
