Gay Cake Controversy!

A Northern Ireland bakery was asked to create a cake with a pro-gay marriage message featuring Bert and Ernie (who as far as I know are not gay!) the bakery refused as it went against the religious views of the owner, the people who ordered the cake reported the bakery to the Equality Commission who have informed the bakers that they are now open to prosecution.

They even made a cake video to explain their position.

If they were so against it why didn't they just make it but hide a lump of poo in the middle?

Tell me OP would you be outraged if the bakery refused to make a cake for a black family?

If not, what's the difference?

Or a civil wedding rather than a church wedding cake. Or a naming ceremony instead of a christening. I remember Jesus saying something about cake makers needing to discriminate against minority groups.

What about a cake with a big black willy on it? Could they refuse then ?

I'd be annoyed if a black bakery owner couldn't refuse custom to white harassers. Or the latest irish branch of the kkk

Maybe it was Bert they objected to rather than the message.

He has serious form.

Funny that this cake company can be open to persecution when it takes a stance on religious grounds, yet other religious workers can refuse to sell alcohol or meat products based on their religion.
