Thing is forcing people who run a business to treat all customers the same is just society at work and not an infringement on the person.

If the person wants to be a racist or bigot they are still free to be a racist or bigot. Just not in their business. When they go home or to the bar they are free to be themselves.

If they are so racist/bigoted that they just cannot abide selling a cake to someone they disagree with then they probably should not go into a cake selling business.
