The ridiculous thing is gay marriage is illegal in Northern Ireland so it's alright for the law to be against them just not for bakers to be
I thought there was something not quite right about this; it looks to me as though those asking for the cake were being deliberately provocative, knowing the reaction they were going to get. That said I'm quite happy about the result; religion should not give you an excuse to flout the law.
If I was the judge I would have asked them to give me proof acceptable in a court of law that:
a. god exists and
b. if he/she/it does exist, proof that he/she/it disapproves of gay people and of them marrying one another.
Only then would I accept their grounds to discriminate.
that is just not true, and you know it. You have just trashed the 1,700,000 people who work in and for the NHS.
Time to stop spreading misinformation in the hope that at some point someone will belive your distorted view.
I agree, they're not going to trash the NHS, not when they can sell the most profitable bits off to those within the tory party with vested interests in the health industry, of which there are plenty. Could just be coincidence of course.
its funny thaat when Labour proposed this sort of thing in the immediate wake of 7/7 the neo-liberal righties collectively threw up their arms in horror at the attack on civil liberties, using phrases such as "Stazi state" and "big brother". But now it's a Tory government, going even further, not a peep. Some people are more partisan than principled by the looks of it.
What type of society do the Tory government want us to live in? One where you can be "profiled" legally based on the colour of your skin? Will Cameron make it acceptable policy for police to target black men driving nice cars? What about asian men with beards in public? Dusky skinned chaps with backpacks on the tube become fair game and "one of those things"? What about having to register with the police if you're a muslim? I know, let's get muslims to wear little crescent moon and star symbols so we can differentiate them from those we "tolerate" such as hindus and sikhs!
Of course our strong, robust human rights laws would stop them doing that. Oh, hang on...
