Leave Cake Bakers Alone – LewRockwell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on December 15, 2017

 No one would support private individuals forcing bakery employees to bake a cake at gunpoint, so why is it right for the government to do it?

Would the same media and social justice warriors force a black baker to make a cake decorated with a black man hanging from a tree for a Klan party?

Businesses are private property. The government has no right to tell businesses whom to serve.

As usual, Ron Paul cuts through the fog.

Rights are not gifts from government, so the government cannot restrict them unless we engage in force or fraud. The bakery did not use force to stop any same-sex couple from getting a wedding cake. It simply exercised its right to decide who it would accept as a customer. No one would support private individuals forcing bakery employees to bake a cake at gunpoint, so why is it right for the government to do it?…

Just as business owners have the right to decide who to do business with, individuals have the right to form any arrangement they wish as long as they do not engage in force or fraud. This includes entering into what many consider unconventional or even immoral marriage contracts. What no individual has the right to do is use government to force others to accept his definition of marriage…

Be seeing you
