The accused men list

No, nobody on the left believes that.

However, we do believe that a business which is "open to the public" has an obligation not to discriminate based on certain categories.

In the baker case, his actions violated a state anti-discrimination statute that was very clear:

The baker's religious beliefs are his business - he has a right to them, based on the 1st amendment.  That doesn't mean that anybody has to agree with him, or grant him special exemptions from generally applicable laws.

Personally, I think Kennedy is off-base talking about tolerance and respect - what matters here is not being discriminated against in concrete ways. If the baker thinks gay people are going to Hell, and/or gay people think the baker is an idiot really isn't all that pertinent.

Trump being Trump has sent them over the edge. They rise and go to bed dreaming of a Trump impeachment----the deep state, the establishment, the corrupt media, many RINO's, and most Hollywood d-nozzles. They be ate up.

The real question is whether or not the SC will find that a state cannot pass and enforce anti-discrimination statutes.

If it does, that certainly would be a decision that moves in the direction of giving the federal government a lot more power, and the states a lot less.  Generally, conservatives claim to be interested in the opposite approach.

They would logically say something like "If you don't like the laws in CO, you can move to another state with different laws".

Hey, Born Again, you ever notice Chuck-You Schumers assistant who sits behind him on the senate floor? Ever notice how her mouth and face is perpetually stuck in a scowl? Seems a lot of lefties scowl a lot. Why?

Leftist, why do you hate smiling so much? What made ya'll so unhappy in life? Mommy issues? Daddy issues? Self issues?

They're obviously very unhappy peeps A99.  And they want to make everyone else unhappy just like they are.
