Markets Remain Flexible Where Rigid Laws Fail

A lesbian couple in Oregon became the focal point of a debate over wedding cake recently, when a local bakery declined service based on their religious beliefs. When he heard what happened, a celebrity baker offered the brides-to-be a free wedding cake. “I said, ‘Hey I can fix this problem. Somebody was a jerk to them and I can bake them a cake. That’s what I can do,’” Goldman told ABCNews.com.

 

Though we are in favor of marriage equality, Outright recognizes that states have no business regulating marriages in the first place. This incident highlights the way market forces can work to ensure that parties on all sides of any controversial issue may act in accordance with their beliefs.

 

This story has a happy ending for all involved: the couple got a free wedding cake, and both businesses got positive publicity for their desired demographic group. WIN!!
