'Business would rather fail before serving gay couples' and other Tuesday midday news briefs

Jack Phillips, Denver Baker Who Refused Wedding Cake To Gay Couple, Defends His Stance - Phillips says he would rather lose his business before making a cake for a gay couple. It's good for us to know who NOT to give our business to. However, it goes beyond that. If businesses are allowed to discriminate against gay couples on the basis of their religious beliefs, then where is that line drawn? Today it's gays. Tomorrow it may be people of a different faith, be it Jewish or Catholic. And then there is the case of racial ethnicities.  

Report: marriage equality plank added to Dem platform draft - Celebrate but also keep in mind and be ready for those who will seek to exploit this against President Obama.  

On death penalties, fast food, and the suspect tastiness of felt puppets - Some supporters of Chick-Fil-A are just dumb as hell. 

Liberty Counsel Jumps on the Boycott Hypocrisy Bandwagon - One good thing about this Chick-Fil-A is how it exposes the hypocrites. Wasn't Matt Barber - a defender of Chick-Fil-A - one of the folks who organized a failed boycott of McDonalds a while back?  

NOM’s dumps are flattening out - Meanwhile, the National Organization for Marriage's anti-gay protests are fizzling hard.

Hate begets hate. This will be the legacy of Jack Phillips.

My attitude is: If someone doesn't want to offer their services, let them not, and I'll just find one that isn't an asshole.
