Bakery accused of ‘religious discrimination’ for refusing to write anti-gay message on cake

Bakery accused of ‘religious discrimination’ for refusing to write anti-gay message on cake

(Hat tip: disenchanted scholar, who commented: “We had the opposite case here. Gay guys wanted Christians to make a pro-gay cake.” That’s usually how it has been here in North America too. I am consistently on the side of business owners to accept only the business of those with whom they want to do business, and not that of those with whom they don’t want to do business. It should be that way in all cases, regardless of the particulars. Naturally, progs don’t agree, and so would hypocritically tend to argue for this woman’s right to refuse the business of hate-filled bigots, but would not extend the same courtesy to those who wish to refuse the business of anti-Christian bigots, who happen to be homosexual activist types, wanting to force Christian business owners to accept their business.)

    Marjorie didn’t want to write politically incorrect things on a cake.

    I don’t blame her. God hates sin, not sinners (though He does sometimes use language like “Jacob have I loved; Esau have I hated”, but that’s simply a means of distinguishing between the elect and the reprobate).

    Her business; she should get to decide whose business she wants, whose she doesn’t; and be allowed to do what she feels comfortable doing, and not do what she doesn’t feel comfortable doing.

    The same should apply with Christian bakers who wish to not make a wedding cake for a homosexual couple, or a bed and breakfast that doesn’t want to have homosexual couples staying at their place, etc.

    That’s only fair, right and just, and proper.

    So is this woman’s actions.

    Progs trying to force Christians to take homosexuals’ business is not.

    If the United States actually followed its Constitution to the letter, no bakery would ever have to make anything for anyone they didn’t want to. But the Constitution is a joke, ignored when it does not further leftist agendas, used as a cudgel when it can be twisted to do so.

    What cases like these show is the hypocrisy of the elite and the illegitimate secular judicial system. Exposing such things is important, because it makes it clear to the Faithful that they are indeed second class citizens.

    This is good, because once they become aware of this, and more importantly that NO democratic political force is willing to change this, then they will be open to appeals from Reaction.

    Our enemy is intrinsically evil and ugly. Exposing this ugliness can do nothing but good for our cause.

    What everyone is overlooking though is the fact that the progs also control the mass media. You can bet this story won’t get any headlines—but there was a story today ridiculing some religious fanatics in Tennessee who think that school bus taillights look like pentagrams. A story that exposes prog hypocrisy isn’t going to get any traction.

    I agree with Will that businesses shouldn’t be forced to do much of anything, except comply with health and safety codes.

    Indeed, Eric. This was from a British newspaper, interestingly, even though it’s an American story…

    I spoke to Bill Jack about this matter shortly after he filed the suit last summer. The claim that he wanted “God hates gays” inscribed on the cake is incorrect. He asked for a verse from the Bible to be inscribed, I believe one of the ones addressing homosexuality from the Old Testament law. There was a second cake requested as well, with a verse from the New Testament regarding repentance if I recall correctly.

    Bill approached three bakeries that advertise in local homosexual media. All three refused to produce the cakes, though one baker stated he had no personal objections to producing the cakes, but feared repercussions from the gay community.

    I have been watching the news since last summer to see if this would bubble up and this is the first time I’ve seen it mentioned.

    Now that I have seen the first report on this, I can see the way they’re going to try and spin it to push Bill Jack and his ministry into the Westboro Baptist mold. Always remember – the media has an agenda.

    Interesting!

    Well, not too surprising…

    Still, regardless, if progs have the right to refuse the business of people they don’t like, so too, Christians ought to be able to do likewise. But naturally, the progs would oppose that. Equal rights, they truly do not believe in, despite their protestations to the contrary.
