That's what you get completely wrong.

The Baker in question will make any regular cake and sell it to anyone. Absolutely no discrimination on his part.

Where he draws the line is custom decoration, which some consider art. There is much larger leniency given to artists. For example, there is a renown portrait artist who will only accept commissions from black Americans. She has a studio, but won't take business from whites. Black portraits are her specialty, and because its art, she is given a bit more latitude on how she is allowed to discriminate.

An atheist baker would make the cake with the Bible verse and laugh during the whole process.

Sorry but your Christian hate has your reasoning askew.
The ONLY reason this is an issue is because this business has become a target for activists.

Not so sure, it could be this, the ONLY reason this is an issue is because this business owner is a little over zealous. If there was really a hell I dont think god would send this owner there for baking a cake.

This is just another attack by the Gaystoppo looking to force acceptance of their perversion on other people.

Probably so. If the dude would just bake a couple cakes for the queers they would probably just all go away.

Atheists seem to be the biggest religious fanatics of them all. Very ill tolerant and very vocal about it.

They will sell cakes to gays all day long. You should research the issue a bit more.

There is truth to this. They read the headline, have an immediate uncontrollable emotional response that they cannot filter out using logic and lash out without ever having a full understanding of the issue.

i would ALSO bet they knew damn well the baker would refuse this as he has done every other time. It is a Gaystoppo attack.

Not just a cake. A specially crafted cake with a specific meaning.
