Well in Europe we are free to buy anything in stores regardless of us being black, white, Jew, Asian, gay, lesbian etc... it seems you guys are not. But if you want to call that freedom, sure whatever. Home of the brave, Land of the (sometimes) free...
And again if you don't want to make a cake for someone cause he's gay, nobody will force you to do that in Europe, just don't become a baker, obviously. if you FREELY CHOOSE to become a baker, then it's your professional responsibility to honor customers. But I guess responsibility and seriousness is not part of the job in America?
And in the end you know what? I don't care that some idiot acts ignorant and irresponsible in his job, the real issue here is the supreme court upholding said idiot. That's the real tragedy.
Its the guys choice to do what he wants. He is free to face the repercussions for his actions. Wich will probably teanslate to customers avoiding his store. The goverment needs to stay out off it. The free market will weed out bad decisions. Force people to do things a certain way in some ocupations and people will avoid thouse occupations untill eventually that teade disappears or the remaining ones become so rare that prices skyrocket or worse yet it goes underground for something so insignificant.
You are cant get pass the intolerance of the guys actions and see the US as a hatefull place altogether. But i see that and think, inmagine if it was in some EU country, that guy would be in jail now. Or worse i inmagine myself being there and not be able to express myself or make a mean tweet and be jailed for it. Im glad im here and not there and will let some guys out there that are a tiny minority be as hatefull as they want without harming anybody and its a good price to pay.
Thouse who value security over freedom deserve neither.- Ben Franklin...I think.
It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.
