Not The Right Fight

You know, just because something is legal - doesn't mean it is right.  The Skinheads with Nazi flags were allowed to march through Skokie, but that didn't make it right.
.
At this point, some gay rights advocates, for reasons they believe honerable, are pursuing a legal-but-not-right agenda.  Case in point below.
.

Now there is no legal leg for these owners to stand on.  They have no more right to disallow a gay marriage than they do any other non-Mennonite wedding (could they discriminate against anyone the church has shunned, hispanics, Catholics?).
.
But that doesn't make it right to force them to do allow your wedding.  What is the ultimate win here?  Forcing  them to accommodate your or forcing them to stop all weddings?  To me, this isn't like a B&B where you just want to be left alone.  This is more of a public demand that people accept you - not the demand to be allowed to live in peace and equality.
.
And, it gives many of the gay movement a black eye, and leaves me with a bad taste in my mouth.  I don't think forcing this is going to change any minds.
