Michael Shermer of The Skeptic’s Society has taught me a lot about critical thinking, and sometimes about how smart people miss the point.
While he might figure that this is moral progress, the issue has never been about bakeries voluntarily becoming inclusive. The debate in the U.S. has always been about artist (such as cake bakers and photographers) being able to reject contracts because of a religious or moral objection.
Now, Michael. Here’s a check for your standard rate to produce a 1,000 words. Write me an essay about how heterosexual Christians are just great people. Reject my offer, and you too can be a bigot.
By saying all this, I’m sure I’d get kicked off Twitter except I’m not on it. Never cared for it. But Twitter can decide to stop doing business with folks. Bakeries don’t have that right. It’s a complex world, but it’s easier if you’re prepared to think, then Tweet.
