So much for the 1st Amendment. Liberals are the most intolerant people!

Going to have to find that bakery and buy some stuff from them. I can’t stand the leftist thuggery against opinions they don’t like.

“We need to send a message to them that in this day and age, bigotry cannot and will not be tolerated,”

so we will boycott, shun, and shut down anyone who disagrees with us. And that’s not bigotry, that’s OK, because it’s gay rights.

Another thought criminal being brought to justice!

“I think we should want them to change”

Well what a coinkydink - that’s exactly what we want for homosexuals! And since it’s a choice, they can.

Dozens of protesters swarmed the building Saturday, and have planned a bigger protest for next weekend.

I hope, for their sakes, that the owners support the Second Amendment as well.

The gays are so pathetic. I am 100% sure there is more than 1 bakery in Denver. If not, they could always go to Boulder, more than enough liberal morons there.

Push back really drives these folks crazy doesn’t it.

2125 signatures to protest in an area with tens of thousands of people.

Rather revealing isn’t it.

I suggest we all go out and buy something from places like this. When they protest, that’s the time to line up around the block buying cakes, cookies, anything else this guy sells.

In your face assholes.

He makes cakes. He doesn’t have to write on it whatever you want.

If someone requested a “Congratulations on your recent abortion” cake, would he have to sell them one with that script?

They could always buy a cake and put their own frosting on the top.

Masterpiece Cake Shop in Lakewood has refused to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple's wedding, sparking an outrage among the area's gay community, who have called for a boycott against the bakery.

How silly! Seems the owner doesn't want business from homosexual soon-to-be-married couples anyway, so how will their boycotting him hurt? On the other hand, liberals and especially homosexuals have become the very bigots that they demonstrate against.

Wow, I had been under the impression that Chick-Fil-A didn’t have units in the Los Angeles region. In fact, they have over 40 of them in the greater Los Angeles area. I’ll be visiting the nearest one to me, in Hollywood later this week.

This flap was a stroke of genius for the CEO. I don’t remember even hearing about Chick-Fil-A before this. I’ll bet millions of Americans were in the same boat.

LOL< way to shoot yourself in the foot complainers.

Wonder if you can buy their cakes, etc... online or through Fed Ex shipment....

Had Chick-Fil-A (sic) Saturday. Mr. hummingbird picked some up, and gift cards, too, I think.

He called and said if there was a boycott, Chick-Fil-A could probably do this often!

The “buy”-cott was a packed restaurant with the line going outside the bldg. and the parking lot jam packed with merry “buy”-cotters!

Another “HA HA” for the liberal, gayness crowd.

Excellent. Speak up normal Americans - or risk never being able to speak up again.

This is great advertising for the heterosexual consumer. They know they're safe from the rabid homos agenda when they shop there.

This has been great for Chic Fil A. I sincerely hope this is becoming a new pro-family movement. It's way over due. I hope all people - young, old, rich, poor - all speak up against the homo abomination. Disease and perversion have never done anything good for a country. It's time to stand up and take our country back. The next generation will thank you for it.

Unless, of course, it’s liberal bigotry against Christians. That’s okay.

Intolerance and the left go hand & hand. If you don’t see things their way or act as they want you to do they will condemn & attack you.

There is no reason, there is no respect for diversity, just emotional rage and attack against those who don’t proscribe to their self-destructive world view.

Homosexuality is a diseases that inhibits one of the most basic functions of life, reproduction. Homosexuality needs to be treated as a diseases not celebrated as diversity. Instead the left is hurting this population by telling them that their disease is healthy.

You're right! I never heard of them before, but now see there's one about 15-20 minutes away. I went there yesterday, but (doh!!) they were closed. Will return again this week. :)

http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/Strict+Scrutiny+Test

Being a homosexual is not a suspect category nor does it allow them to ask the court to review the discrimination using a `heightened scrutiny’ standard.
So there it is: No shirt, no shoes, no homos—no service.
Barry would say, `We built this guy’s business so we can tell him how to run it.’ try to get some sympathy from the NAACP. Until the CCLU gins something up, the rest of us say—it, uh, sucks to be you.

Yeah. There should be an Internet list of pro-homo businesses that people can check before they shop.
It could be like a "Who's pro-Perv" Angie's list.

This is turning out so well for business, I think more business are going to admit to being pro-family. This has been one of the best advertisements in this countries history. Orders will be rolling in! Normal American citizens are celebrating the people who speak up and say what they want to say but have been threatened by the thought police into silence.

Man, this anti-homo campaign is becoming a huge success. I think this is wonderful.

I live close enough to Lakewood that I can just do it in person. However when I get around to visiting the place I’ll see if they do shipment orders.

Of course I have to remember to go there in the first place. I don’t really go to bakeries all to often.

Spot on.

I have no problem with them speaking their mind or peaceful informational picketing. It lets me know that that is a business I need to try. Without the queers going nuts because Chick-fil-A is owned by Christians, I might have never tried them.

Next they will be comparing this to refusing service to blacks in the south in the 1950’s. They love to compare it to blacks. If I were black I’d be offended. Deeply.

The good news is that the take the bakery is taking is the event, not the people, is the problem. It is against their religious beliefs to support an activity. Hello first amendment.

If they want a wedding cake from this bakery, they better keep the sex of the couple in the closet.

If I owned a bake shop and these homos insisted I make their wedding cake. I would tell them payment is in advance and no refunds and make them sign for it with this spelled out. I would then make their cake they wanted but would do a sub-par job. This would be my revenge for imposing their law-suit backed sodomite BS on me

Gay= the biggest lie because
In nature gay = failure
In our Judeo-Christian traditions gay means paganist sodomy fought against by the first Hebrews who rejected and fought the pagan tribes. I am for tradition, not what some motley crew of militant gays cooks up.

One would think that with all of the pro-homosexual opportunities offered by high schools, colleges, culinary schools, Bravo, Ovation and the Food Channel. There would hundreds of gay operated and owned cake shops begging for gay business bucks?

Or is this just an arrogant customer looking for a fight?

My guess is the latter.

It was good to excellent. The chicken salad sandwich was excellent. The egg biscuit was good but not as good as my wife’s. The grilled chicken salad was very good.

I’m still not ready for grilled chicken on a hamburger bun. But that’s just me. I wish they would put out a sandwich on Italian bread because the grilled chicken itself is very tasty.

“Bigotry”...The problem with all this is that the activist homosexual community wants to make their own situation comparable to the plight of black people in the civil rights movement.
I don’t believe it is, of course. But that’s the way they see themselves. They want “gay” to be the new “black”.
Whiners...all of ‘em.
