About an incomplete gay vs. bakery story

Valerie Richardson writes in the The Washington Times, Video on Muslim bakers points to double standard on gay weddings.
The story seemed a bit incomplete, so I emailed Ms. Richardson.
Ms. Richardson, you left am important distinction out of your story -- that mostly white, heterosexual bakery and other business owners are part of the "targeted" class of citizens created by President Obama his first month in office. President Obama established that it is a Federal hate crime to act against anyone that isn't white *and* isn't heterosexual based on race, religion, etc. By executive order, there can be no Federal hate crime if the victims are white and heterosexual.

Thus, non-white or LGBT folk are protected class citizens, and aren't targeted or persecuted.

You didn't mention if non-white, Christian bakery owners have taken stands, or been harassed. You haven't mentioned if there are pagan or Jewish businesses that cater specifically and exclusively to their own community, to the exclusion of all others.

One other aspect you aren't covering is the money flow -- who is paying to congregate and communicate with protestors, who funds the lawyer and media efforts to establish and publicize these gay-rights fund raising activities?

For other anti-social acts, we have had to learn to focus on the bullies, the thieves, the rapists, the murderers to reduce risk to citizens. I feel irritation that gay terrorists enjoy immunity from scrutiny.

There is a difference between shunning, and actively interfering with a business -- the latter is using terror and intimidation to attempt social change outside legal venues. Terrorism.  The goal of taking away another's choices, of establishing your own rules without the responsibility of governing well, is terrorism.
