It must shock so many people to know that there are these laws...http://insider.foxnews.com/2015/07/07/bakery-owners-fined-135000-refusing-make-gay-wedding-cake
Yeah, no other negative impact. Right.
No, they're not. You run a public business, you're required to serve the public. Period. Your religious or personal convictions don't override that fact. Gay people are members of the public, and therefore must be served, provided they're willing to pay, and aren't otherwise disrupting work.Yep, a lot of people see it that way too, and that's fine. But there are some that do not, and do not want to be involved in a transaction that condones a ceremony that goes against their faith. They are entitled to decline to be part of such a transaction. That homosexual couple will easily find another baker or florist or photographer that thinks like you do and is willing to take their business.
If you really don't want to deal with those wily gays, then either open a club, or get out of business altogether.
