Compulsory Speech & Marriage Challenges (Ireland and USA)

ugh freespeech compulsion

 

Gay activists in the United States and Ireland are pursuing a line of cases for discrimination against small businesses that do not want to participate in same-sex marriages or gay activism. In the cases, gay activists seek services from small businesses, such as asking a baker to make a wedding cake for a same-sex marriage or a cake commemorating a gay event.

Query if anti-discrimination laws should be used to force small business owners to participate in speech they find objectionable on a religious basis. In the United States, the government is not permitted to make any law establishing religion, impinge the free exercise of religion, or abridge freedom of speech.
