Can you explain how Republicans say a bakery has the freedom as a business to refuse making a cake for a gay wedding, but freak out when a private businesses exercises the same freedom to install a mandatory mask policy to enter their business?

  1. Sexual orientation is a protected class. That means you can’t refuse service because someone is gay.

    You can however refuse service to gay men who also happen to be barefoot based on the fact that they are barefoot.

    Wanting to be a public health hazard in a pandemic is not a protected class.

  2. You could say the exact same thing about democrats. Just replace republican with democrats and change the cake issue to be at the end of the paragraph. This is how American politics are. Same argument. Lmao

  3. I don’t care if your business requires it, I can choose to shop there or not. That’s freedom.

    The government trying to tell me what I need to put into my body is the issue. I’m surprised that the party of ‘My body my choice’ is having an issue on this topic to be honest.

  4. I live in Florida so i have freedom here. Governor Desantis lets us do whatever the fuck we want.

    “**I’m standing in your way … If you are trying to lock people down, I am standing in your way. If you’re trying to restrict people and impose mandates and ruin their jobs and livelihood; if you are trying to lock people down, I am standing in your way. I am standing for the people of Florida. Why don’t you do your job, why don’t you get this border secure? Until you do that, I don’t want to hear a blip about COVID from you.”**

  5. There is no way to explain it. Companies have the right to refuse service to anyone, regardless of race, sexual orientation, gender, political leanings, whatever. Basically if they don’t want to serve you, they don’t have to.

    I live in England, so I’m unfamiliar with American politics and Republicans, but that’s just plain and simply hypocritical what they’re thinking.

  6. You’re thinking about this the wrong way. You are trying to apply logic and reason to people who are using things other than logic and reason to guide their views.

  7. People (on any part of the political spectrum) don’t generally have coherent internal philosophies. We have collections of philosophies, beliefs and, most importantly, feelings. We don’t make an effort to reconcile beliefs until we’re forced to face our internal contradictions, a situation most we actively avoid because it’s uncomfortable.

  8. The same reason certain socialist-leaning-democrats in washington want to spread the wealth and complain about wealth inequity…. and then own 3 homes, make enough money to be considered wealthy by all standards, and donate less than 5% of their income to charitable causes.

    because ones political party is a HORRIBLE indicator of ones intentions/intelligence

  9. It’s probably not the same people saying those two things.

    Unless you’ve heard it on fox or something.

    But that’s just an entertainment channel. No one takes it seriously.
