Man, it seems so much work to hate people. Did they realize that when they signed up to be bigots?

"You can treat everyone equally and fairly, but you will have to treat everyone that way, even the people that you don't really like." or "You can discriminate against anyone you want to, but in order to do so, you need to hire a lawyer to argue that your form of discrimination was an artistic expression."

Seems if people actually realized that was their choice, they'd realize they'd rather deal with people of ethnicities, religions, genders, and even sexual orientations that they disapprove of than to deal with lawyers.
If you allow the state to chip away at anyone's Constitutional rights, you're allowing the state to chip away at yours. To that extent, this case was a victory for all, because the Constitution was protected, but also it was a loss to all, because an ugly side of America is free to continue being as they are.
