Raw Story - Christian Cake Baker Rips Miss. Lawmakers Over Mind-Boggling ‘Stupidity’ of Anti-Gay Law
Excellent! It sounds like not everyone in the GOP ( besides me ) is a bigoted religious fanatic! Too bad they don’t run people like Mitchell Moore instead of people like, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, or Donald Trump. If they ran people more like him instead, I might end up voting Republican come November. Man the homophobic wingnuts are really going to hate this him! David Edwards reports….

Mississippi Christian cake baker Mitchell Moore blasted lawmakers in his state this week for the ‘stupidity’ of passing a law that ‘decriminalizes discrimination’ against LGBT people.
The Republican owner of Campbell’s Bakery in Jackson told NPR during an interview on Wednesday that Gov. Phil Bryant (R) and GOP lawmakers were actually violating Christian principles with a new law that claims to protect the “sincerely held religious beliefs or moral convictions” of business owners.
“I am here to bake cakes and to sell those cakes,” Moore explained to NPR host Renee Montagne. “I’m not here to decide arbitrarily who deserves my cake and who doesn’t. That’s not what I do. That’s not my job.”
“So leaving aside the stupidity of passing it because it decriminalizes discrimination – which, that really is kind of the biggest issue – but I can actually say I think the law of unintended consequences is going to come back to bite the people who signed this bill,” Moore warned. “If it is my sincerely held religious belief that I shouldn’t serve them, then I can do that. And I can hide behind that language. But that language is so vague it opens a Pandora’s box. And you can’t shut it again.”
