Regarding The Baker and the Empire

Re: The Baker and the Empire (New York Times Column, December 10, 2017), by Ross Douthat.

We agree with Ross Douthat that we all need a way to live together and that the goal requires some compromise and magnanimity; however, this should not include tolerating discrimination.

The cake issue hinges upon the obligation of a merchant when offering services to the general public, which we believe implicitly, demands the services be provided to all comers. The religious views of the merchant do not provide him with a right to exercise prejudice against a customer.

Discrimination of any type, whether based on religious, racial, gender or personal opinion, are all equally non-defensible and go against the very principles that our country is built upon.
