Oh, sure. And black people could have gone on using separate water fountains, eating at separate restaurants, and going to separate schools. Religion was no excuse for that kind of bigotry, and it’s no excuse for the bigotry of that piece-of-shit baker in the Masterpiece case.

If you want to use religion as a valid reason to discriminate against us, then you are every bit as much of an asshole as that baker is.

We will not tolerate exclusion and discrimination. Fuck that.

The idea that we’re bigots for demanding an end to discrimination and for demanding full equality is ridiculous.

It isn’t bigotry to fight bigotry.
