The couple actually compared not getting their cake to being raped, as well as blaming the bakery for weight gain and their resumed smoking habit among other “symptoms.” The list of alleged mental, physical, and emotional damages submitted by the couple include
“acute loss of confidence,” “doubt,” “excessive sleep,” “felt mentally raped, dirty and shameful,” “high blood pressure,” “impaired digestion,” “loss of appetite,” “migraine headaches,” “pale and sick at home after work,” “resumption of smoking habit,” “shock” “stunned,” “surprise,” “uncertainty,” “weight gain” and “worry.”
It is supremely hypocritical to claim to love freedom of expression, diversity and tolerance, only to turn around and use the violence of government to intentionally injure someone else because they don’t see things the way you do. Of course, loving freedom does not mean that you have to agree with the opinions or decisions of others, and it does not mean you can’t criticize the words and actions of others. It does, however, mean that you have no right to force your will on them, on your own or by way of legislation.
