Fox News Faceoff

The opposing written opinions have been posted on the local Fox news site. Twelve to fifteen minutes of debate was edited down to about three. At least they used the part when my words were distinct.

Update: while the video remains available, apparently the written opinions are not archived.

Wow! Great debate. You did very well. And you look marvelous!

I keep thinking about your debate. What if a Sunday school teacher such as yourself had gone in there and ordered rainbow cupcakes for their class? There is little doubt they would have done that custom order for you. Their problem wasn't with making the rainbow cupcakes, it was with how they were going to be used after the sale.

What right does a supplier have to restrict post-sale usage of a commodity? It's kind of like a book publisher trying to tell the retail customer what he can and cannot do with a book after he buys it.

The constitution protects us from discrimination by the state. Private people are much more free to discriminate. Our best weapon to combat this is to do things like you did: publicize the discrimination and remind business owners that it is not good for business to discriminate like that.

Well done Birdie.

Hi Birdie,

I think you were Very Brave to do that news appearance, and I humbly thank you for standing up for what is right.

You are as well-spoken on TV as you are on the blog!

I'd have probably socked that bearded twit.

I can't help but think how proud your brother would be. Very brave.
