I see where he is coming from, but I must disagree. Since the government has a total monopoly on marriage licenses, the couple in this instance can't go find another supplier. I do believe there should be some form of conscientious objector protection which would cover her, but she is outright refusing for anyone to do it.

The better example would be the bakery that refused to bake a cake for a gay wedding. The gay couple could have gone to any number of bakeries that were in their community who would have happily made the cake. Instead they decided to sue for everything under the sun and drive them out of business.

Way to keep it above the table. I did not belittle or disrespect anyone, but you went straight to the insults. If you read my post, I said she should do the marriage license as the government has a total monopoly in this instance.

The part about the conscientious objector status is a well known legal standing. This is why you don't see the Amish in the military, even though all men over 18 are required to register for selective service. Only when you get into abortion and gay politics do the absolutists come into play.

The gay rights movement has moved away from "All we want is equality" to "You will be made to care and approve of our choice! If you don't we will destroy you!"

You can't volunteer to be a conscientious objector. She holds public office, no one made her do that, unlike the draft or something where CO usually comes up.

I agree, but when she took office this possibility wasn't around. The closest thing would be a doctor who refuses to do abortions.

Totally agree!!!1!

I plan to open a bakery of my own. However, my religion is such that we believe that blacks are inferior to whites. It goes against my religion to serve blacks.

The government shouldn't have any say in whether or not I deny services to blacks.

After all, the blacks can just go to another bakery and get another cake!

I am a Libertarian and we think that is perfectly fine if you want to do that. You would need to accept the consequences of that action (bad press, fewer customers) and you would most likely go out of business. The government shouldn't have any say in the matter.
