Should you be forced to act against your conscience if..? e.g. gay cakeWatch
they refused to write a pro-gay marriage message on a cake for a gay couple and were taken to court (they didn't refuse to serve the people, but they refused to write the message). Don't they have a right to say that that is against their beliefs and conscience so they cannot write this message? Shouldn't we support the individual's own conscience even if other people have strong opposing opinions about it? Isn't that going in the direction of thought police?
Or should they expect to be forced to do things tht society says are in keeping with the correct morals of the time. What if a personal t-shirt business owner refused to write a message on a t-shirt about a mixed race family's wonderful new mixed race baby, on the grounds that they, and/or their religon/group doesn't support racial mixing and couldn't in good conscience celebrate that.
What's more important in our soceity, your own conscience or exhibiting the "right" morals?
