Balladeer’s Blog remains the only site on the web that criticizes American Liberals and Conservatives equally. Let’s have fun pondering a few concepts.
Regular readers here know I openly supported gay marriage YEARS before the weak, inept and crooked little man named Barack Obama did. I still do, so understand at the top that I’m presenting this topic as a hypothetical for discussion’s sake.
When the news came out about Facebook’s blatant censorship of various subjects like Muslim homophobia and misogyny or corruption scandals in one particular political party I was curious how a lot of Facebook consumers would react. Some were outraged, but the usual brigade of people who can talk themselves out of EVER taking a stand on any issue mumbled about how “it’s Zuckerberg’s company … he can run it the way he likes.”
Okay, so if you feel that one percenter Mark Zuckerberg can run HIS company however he pleases and can ban items he disagrees with, why is it wrong for bakery owners to refuse to bake wedding cakes for gay couples? The same principle should apply in BOTH cases: either Zuckerberg should be forced to stop discriminating against consumers who want to use HIS public business OR bakery owners should be free to say they don’t want their public business to be forced to participate in things that offend THEM.
We all know that the “keep your heads down and don’t ever offend anyone” wimps on Facebook would never have the stomach to actually fight this battle, but I think it makes a nice question to ponder.
