Will the hate end?

In the June 7 paper, an article discussed the 7-2 Supreme Court decision favoring Lakewood baker Jack Phillips over the Colorado Civil Rights commission saying it violated the U.S. Constitution's Free Exercise Clause. Jack exercised his right to free religious expression in 2012 by refusing to create a special wedding cake for a gay couple. He'd gladly sold wonderful baked goods to other gay customers and offered this couple anything in his shop that was already made. They refused and filed a complaint with the commission. 

Immediately, Jack, his family and employees started getting death threats and hate calls from anti-Christian bigots. This continued for almost a year. Now, Jack and everybody else are again getting hate calls from the bigots. For people like this that don't believe in religious freedom, one must ask the question. Does their hate ever end?
