This is without doubt the silliest story of the week. It has always been my understanding that it is at the discretion of a company that a transaction can occur. A good example is a Bar, if someone walks in barely able to maintain a vertical posture, it would be unwise to serve him or her. Should something happen later, the repressions might be huge.

Likewise I seriously doubt that any car dealership would allow a person under the influence to take a car out for a crash test drive.

These examples are extreme, but I doubt that anyone would take objection to them. They are sensible.

I have no clue about how many small convenience stores there are in the country, millions is my guess. I will bet that most have a ‘A Don’t Sell” list (The equivalent of the DHS No Fly list). It is my theory that if you own a business it is your choice to accept or reject an offer.

There are many reasons why a company might turn work away. I am made offers and on occasion I say no. The deal does not fit my goals, so I decline the contract.

However, this latest story has my head spinning.

A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday.

This makes me laugh and cry at the same time.
