Is This Religious Persecution in America or a Brazen Display of Intolerance?

I think by now most of us have heard of this court case where a bakery owner in Oregon denied services to a gay couple for their wedding based on their personal religious beliefs. Should a business owner be forced to provide services to anyone willing to pay for their services? Can or should a business owner have the right to deny services to anyone is his or her denial is grounded in his or her religious beliefs? What do you think?
