People are already pointing to antidiscrimination lawsuits against bakers and the like as evidence that we are not seeking only the right to live our own lives, but also the power to dictate others' lives. We thus feed the myth of individual liberty as a zero-sum game, i.e., one in which our gains are automatically someone else's losses. We also run the risk of looking like hypocrites for demanding freedom of association for ourselves but no one else.
I understand your point. Where I get muddled is "Freedom of Association" "Anti-Discrimination" and "Public Access" Laws. The laws exist. Christian businesses denying service to gay couples differs how, from Muslim taxi drivers denying service to wine or dog carriers?
I wonder how much self-hatred it takes for you to be okay with discrimination against yourself and other homosexuals under the guise of "freedom of association" or "freedom of religion". They are an excuse for bigotry, and you are pathetic.
