Raven said that discriminating against gay people is the same as discriminating against someone because of their race — and then Cameron Bure had to bring the First Amendment into it.
“The Oregon law bars businesses from discriminating against sexual orientation, race, disability, age or religion,” Symoné said, “and to me, it’s the same exact thing that they did back in the day saying that black people couldn’t do certain things because it’s my ‘religious belief.'”
Cameron Bure, an evangelical Christian, disagreed. “I don’t think this is discrimination at all. This is about freedom of association,” she said. “It’s about constitutional rights. It’s about First Amendment rights. We do have the right to still choose who we associate with.
“[The bakery] didn’t refuse to bake the cake because of [the couple’s] sexual orientation,” she continued. “In fact, they baked cakes for them previously. They had a problem with the actual ceremony because that — the ceremony — is what conflicted with their religious beliefs. They are saying that they stand for marriage between a man and a woman.”
Raven was not having it. “I refuse to associate with you right now,” she said. “Is that OK?”
The best part of the video, though, isn’t the spirited debate, it is Raven’s epic side-eye game. The blinks. The eye rolls. The head shake. The grimace. The shade is beautiful in its perfection.
