I am very gratified that the Tastries bakery owner can continue her business. I feel that the rights of the Christian community are being ignored. I know what the Bible says and the opinions stated are good.

Mr. Balmain said it best that it's a free country and everyone is entitled to one's belief. I could not enjoy my wedding cake if I had it made by a bakery who did not agree with my beliefs. As a Christian, what if I say no because of my beliefs and am forced to do the thing I do not want to do? Where are my rights? Please drop this. This kind of disagreement is not necessary. If I was told I could not have something because of my beliefs, I would go on and find a business who would.
