First Amendment to the United States Constitution "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." The First Amendment is intended to protect individual citizens from government over-reach in the areas of speech and religion. In this case, the "cake bakers" are freely exercising their right to act within the scope of well established Christian doctrines relative to marriage and gay marriage. Love the sinner, hate the sin - and don't support or condone the sinning. Furthermore, even putting the religious part aside - there should be no problem with a private business selecting their customers on whatever basis they see fit. To have the government come down with a $135,000.00 fine in this case is chilling to say the least. And as an aside - while you might find this "bigotry" (I didn't realize that to be un-supportive of sin is now somehow defined as bigotry - but that's another discussion) to be offensive, it is not unconstitutional. Kind of like allowing the press to spew the falsehoods that they do on a regular basis. I might not like it - but I can always change the channel. Can you imagine the uproar if Donald Trump used the force of government to fine some individual blogger $135,000.00 for spewing some hate filled rhetoric towards the President?
