The wedding cake and photographer examples don't even apply to Arizona. Arizona doesn't have gay marriage and won't anytime soon, making the examples moot. Supporters of the bill haven't thought independently enough for themselves and thus have no other examples to use, so they just use non-applicable ones they've been spoon-fed that sound good to them.
Clearly, religious people feigning victimhood over oppression haven't yet figured out that religion is already a protected class while homosexuals have absolutely no civil protections of any kind in AZ whatsoever.
Gays could be denied services before this veto, they will continue to be denied services after this veto.
Religious zealots also have no clue what oppression actually is if they think gays are the bullies after religion has had centuries of carte-blache entitlement to belittle, demean, dehumanize, arrest, abuse, murder, blame them for hurricanes, 9/11, earthquakes, tsunamis, tornadoes, and the Newtown shootings.
The fact that gays and a growing majority of society no longer puts up with bullshit religious entitlement to oppress them has the zealots in a frenzy of fake offense as they lose their previously unchallenged control.
