So a bakery refused to bake a cake for a same sex couple's wedding and now they're being fined $135,000 for it. What are your thoughts on this matter?
I was always told people have the right to refuse customers and that people were allowed to have religious freedom. So even though I do feel refusing them was kind of silly I don't think they should be getting penalized like this when stores should have the right to refuse customers for any reason.

Ah! I actually *just* read an article about this! They're not being fined for discrimination (which does kind of suck). The Kleins (bakery owners) are being fined for posting the Bowman-Cryers' (lesbian couple) personal information on their facebook page. This lead to the Bowman-Cryers getting harassed by antigay supporters. BUT the Bowman-Cryers have foster children which means their personal information isn't supposed to be distributed for the children's protection.
A judge decided that the Kleins posting the Bowman-Cryers' information directly lead to the Bowman-Cryers' harassment. THAT'S why the Kleins are being fined.
