Here’s a story: Oregon bakery will have to pay same-sex couple up to $150,000! Why? Because they discriminated against a same-sex couple by refusing to make them a wedding cake. The discrimination was so detrimental that each person will receive up to $75,000 for their mistreatment during their purchase of a $20 cake.
The Oregon Equality Act of 2007 states:
“Oregonians may not be denied service based on sexual orientation or gender identity. The law provides an exemption for religious organizations and schools, but does not allow private businesses to discriminate based on sexual orientation,” Burr said.
In other words, we will discriminate against those who discriminate against this group we want to protect from discrimination, except in these two settings in which we allow discrimination.
Sure your business may be private. It may be family-owned. Yet the State forbids you to ‘discriminate.’ I wonder who out there will catch on and begin scamming. Seems like easy money. And it wouldn’t be wrong, right? Who are we to discriminate?
