    I find it strange that there needs to be a "gay pride" night anywhere...any more than an "African American pride" anything either. Why should people be proud of a characteristic they are born with? I can understand being proud that you are honest, generous, loyal etc, but not proud about something over which you have no control at all.

    WE ARE ALL JUST POPPYSEEDS IN THE BAKERY OF LIFE

    That's an easy one, Pumpsie:  As long as evil bigots like 67redsox and Softy are spewing their filthy hatred and lies there needs to be positive events like Gay Pride night to address them.

    picture from gay pride parade in new york. very family oriented.

     

    Can we have a heterosexual pride night?  

     

     

     




    Were families told what was going on?  I hope so because people who do not want to participate in such a night or who don't want their money going to this organization should have been given a heads up so they could choose weather or not they wanted to attend.

     

     

     

    Baseball is a family game and I don't believe the sox should push this agenda down other peoples throats.  People complain all the time that they don't want christian values pushed on them, why should christians have this issue pushed on them.

    I feel bad for you if you are a heterosexual white male. 

     

     

     




    y r u automatically equating family values with CHRISTIANS? are u for real? have u not seen all the stats on christians cheating and making a mockery of family values everyday? so a pride day automatically is against the family? r u for real? many who are gay i'm sure came with their partners, adopted kids and their mothers or sisters.. jeez! i'm straight and i almost feel sorry for ya!

    Bigot.

     



    DENVER –  A gay couple is pursuing a discrimination complaint against a Colorado bakery, saying the business refused them a wedding cake to honor their Massachusetts ceremony, and alleging that the owners have a history of turning away same-sex couples.

    As more states move to legalize same-sex marriage and civil unions, the case highlights a growing tension between gay rights advocates and supporters of religious freedom.

    "Religious freedom is a fundamental right in America and it's something that we champion at the ACLU," said Mark Silverstein, the legal director of the group in Colorado, which filed the complaint on behalf of the couple. "We are all entitled to our religious beliefs and we fight for that. But someone's personal religious beliefs don't justify breaking the law by discriminating against others in the public sphere."

    The attorney for Jack Phillips, one of the owners of Masterpiece Cakeshop, sees it differently.

    "We don't believe that this is a case about commerce. At its heart, this is a case about conscience," said Nicolle Martin. She said the matter is important because it will serve as an example for future cases across the country as more gay couples gain legal recognitions for their relationships.

    "It brings it to the forefront. I just don't think that we should heighten one person's beliefs over and above another person's beliefs," she said.

    The Colorado Attorney General's office filed a formal complaint last week after the ACLU initiated the process last year on behalf of David Mullins and Charlie Craig. The case is scheduled for a hearing in September before Colorado's Civil Rights Commission.

    Nationwide, 12 states now allow gay marriage, with Rhode Island, Delaware and Minnesota doing so this year. And in a year that Colorado lawmakers approved civil unions, they also elected the first gay Speaker of the House.

    But Colorado's civil union law does not provide religious protections for businesses despite the urging of Republican lawmakers. Democrats argued that such a provision would give businesses cover to discriminate.

    Mullins, 28, and Craig, 33, filed the discrimination complaint against Phillips after visiting his business in suburban Denver last summer. After a few minutes looking at pictures of different cakes, the couple said Phillips told them he wouldn't make one for them when he found out it was to celebrate their wedding in Colorado after they got married in Massachusetts. Phillips has said making a wedding cake for gay couples would violate his Christian religious beliefs, according to the complaint.

    "We were all very upset, but I was angry and I felt dehumanized and mortified," Mullins said. He said he vented his frustration on Facebook and was surprised at how "the story ended up catching fire," with responses from local media and bloggers in other countries posting about it.

    "We felt that the best way to honor the support that they had given us was to follow this complaint through," he said. In the process, the ACLU said they found out about two other gay couples who had been refused a wedding cake from the same shop. Both have written affidavits in support of the discrimination claim.

    Recent advances on gay rights only underscore Colorado's difficult past on the issue. In 2006, voters banned gay marriage. More notably, in 1992, voters approved a ban on municipal antidiscrimination laws to protect gays, leading some to brand Colorado a "hate state." Four years later, the U.S. Supreme Court said the law, known as Amendment 2, was unconstitutional.

    The complaint seeks to force Masterpiece Cakeshop to "cease and desist" the practice of refusing wedding cakes for gay couples, and to tell the public that their business is open to everyone.

    If Phillips loses the case and refuses to comply with the order, he would face fines of $500 per case and up to a year in jail, his attorney said.

    "It would force him to choose between his conscience and a paycheck. I just think that's an intolerable choice," Martin said.

     

     

    So now christians have to choose between God and jail.  These people have hurt feelings so they want to ruin the man, nice.

    The difference is this: gay rights is a matter of basic equity and human rights and this country is not run by religion. You want religion, go to church. But all people deserve basic rights, respect, and freedom from persecution.

    Try substituting "African American" every time you read the word gay. See how that works out for you.

    Black and ssad, two different issues.  People have lots of choices, there are wedding vendors who cater to those with ssad.  So now christians must keep their beliefs to themselves, behind close doors one hour on sunday. If they try to practice their religion outside of church they may go to jail.  Why do I feel I'm describing russia.

    Who is being persecuted here.  Two guys who can't get a cake or a man who may lose his business and go to jail because of his religious beliefs.  Who ever thought we would see this day in america.
