And I support their right to associate with whomever they want…

I got some flak here at the Politically Incorrect Novelist blog for a post I did some time ago condemning a pair of women who contemplated suing a baker for refusal to bake a cake for their “wedding.”

My aggressive stance towards those who threaten to use the government to correct the thinking of their fellow citizens was (entirely predictably) interpreted by some as “homophobia.”

As for me, I stand on principle.  And my principle is to support people’s freedom of association.  So, in this case, I support freedom of association:

A restaurant in Knoxville, Tennessee refused to serve state Sen. Stacey Campfield, the man who sponsored the state’s “don’t say gay” bill, compared homosexuality to bestiality, and most recently told Michelangelo Signorile that it’s virtually impossible to spread HIV/AIDS through heterosexual sex. “I hope that Stacy Campfield now knows what if feels like to be unfairly discriminated against,” the Bistro at the Bijou wrote on its Facebook wall on Sunday. The restaurant has received an overwhelmingly positive response. (HT: Michelangelo Signorile)

Were Campfield to sue the bistro owners to get the government to correct their thinking, I would similarly consider him a cowardly and loathsome enemy of freedom and would similarly consider him as be deserving of being spat upon be lovers of freedom everywhere.

When gay activists are enemies of freedom, they make themselves my (and your) enemies.  When republicans do so, they make themselves my enemies as well.
