The difference is the Christian baker knows the cake was ordered for a gay wedding. The Christian gun store owner doesn't know the gun was ordered to commit a murder. If this was known in advance, the gun store owner should have every right NOT to sell it. A free society wouldn't force people to do things they find objectionable...but then again, we are far, far removed from a free society. Discrimination should not be a crime.
Sources very closed to Greece’s minister of finance told Greek Reporter that today Yanis Varoufakis held a top secret meeting with high-ranking finance ministry officials to prepare them in case negotiations at the upcoming Eurogroup fail. The anonymous source noted that everybody in the room was staring at each other when Varoufakis – also a prominent blogger – said “We ‘ll go to Bitcoin, we will be ahead of all the world economies and although it may be painful in the beginning, Greece’s economy will thrive in the long term.”
The Greek Finance Minister went on to explain what is the cryptocurrency and how it will be implemented into Greeks’ day to day life by using a special mini computerized card with a chip. All citizens will carry the card as an electronic wallet. The card will be distributed for free to all Greek citizens via the local tax offices but it will also be available for purchase at the country’s entry points for 45 euros, or 0,20 Bitcoin each. The sale of the card to tourists is expected to be another form of revenue for cash-strapped Greece.
“This is the smartest move to beat corruption and tax evasion, all transactions will be recorded to the Greek Ministry of Finance new secure and dedicated Bitcoin servers and we ‘ll be able to track transanctions at any given moment,” said Varoufakis defending his decision.

It's politics, not science. The issue is a tool to achieve political ends, motivated by goals having nothing to do with either climate or science.
No, that doesn't mean there should be no rules, just no rulers. Rules should not be made by a monopolist of rule making. Rules should not be enforced by a monopolist of rule enforcement. And whether or not the rules have been followed should not be decided by a monopolist of ultimate decision making -- especially not when those rules are intended to limit or control the monopolist who makes the decisions!
