The Gary Johnson question.

My answer is no.

The market would be such that there would be very little negative impact in refusing to bake for a Nazi wedding. Most people would applaud it.

In a city of even moderate size - like Grand Rapids, MI or Knoxville, TN you would expect to see some negative impact if a place habitually refused to serve people because of their sexuality or religion for instance. The owners / proprietors may quickly be the victim of an online campaign, boycotts and such. Both the right and the left are increasingly using this strategy.

In a very homogenous, monocultural, single-ideology area the market repercussions of refusing to do business with others based on bigotry may be more insulated. This is largely due to the limited widespread appeal of the location and perhaps the insular 'keep it to ourselves' mindset. Thus a small town's residents would likely have fewer objections with a photographer that did not do gay weddings and he or she may never receive any reprimand but if a gay couple asked they would likely find another appointment on that day.
