That picture is not Duff Goldman, at least unless he's had plastic surgery and lost quite a bit of weight since he was a guest judge on the Epic Meal Time chef battle a few weeks ago.

Pretty sure that's a photo of the chef who refused to make them a cake.  Horrible photo choice and the lack of caption doesn't help things at all.

Goldman, whose bakery is based out of Baltimore, said he prepares a lot of wedding cakes for same-sex couples and was surprised by how the local baker's actions.

What the sentence happened?
 
2013-02-05 06:30:37 AM
I love you, Duff Goldman. I would have your same-sex couple babies.

Yeah. That's the little closet-case em-effer that refused to bake the cake. He's smiling because Jesus likes him best.
 
2013-02-05 06:30:40 AM
Good!
Because even though I support the other baker's right to be an asshat in his private business, I also support the same-sex couple and wish them well.
 
2013-02-05 06:31:13 AM
i want a free cake.  i'm happy too and i'm getting married to my x-box (gay)

It's the Mirror Universe version.

Didn't read the article, but this is an awesome concept. My only concern would be how to execute this plan. Do they need a rejection letter from the baker who refused? Will he make the calls to other bakeries and confirm? Just curious to know how he's going to not get scammed out of some cake...

The baker already spoke to the media admitting he refused to bake a cake because of her sexual orientation.

so is Duff's proposal a one time deal or a standing order?
 
2013-02-05 06:45:03 AM
answered my own question... guess it helps if i go ahead and read the article...

bah...

who has time to RTFA when there's a cake thread happening...

So gay money doesn't have the same rate of exchange and heteromoney?
 
2013-02-05 06:55:55 AM
he wants his tv show back.

Apparently it directly corresponds to individual rate of interest and their principles...
 
2013-02-05 07:06:44 AM
Is it ironic that a man who bakes cakes for a living refuses to make a cake for a gay couple?

Gay couples tend to get more pennies for their money's worth.
 
2013-02-05 07:10:22 AM
I'm surprised how many of you missed the part in the bible where Jesus clearly set "Let them eat cake, but only if they don't have teh ghey". I think it's right after the part where he said "Love thy neighbor as yourself so long as they act and believe exactly like you".

/that is in there, right?
 
2013-02-05 07:11:28 AM
Duffman is a fabulous individual.

The woman told KATU that he called her and her partner "abominations to the Lord;" Klein denied making that statement.

I thought the abomination was just about men "laying" together. Show me a bible passage that says anything about lesbians.

fusillade762: The woman told KATU that he called her and her partner "abominations to the Lord;" Klein denied making that statement.

Romans 1"(26) Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. (27) In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.
Of course, as a lesbian, my argument against this verse is that relations with men are unnatural for me.   But yeah, even if we aren't in Leviticus, Paul does make sure we're included in his general asshattedness.
 
2013-02-05 07:47:28 AM
Self-promotion disguised as philanthropy is still self-promotion.  Also, there's going to be an influx of people who oppose gay marriage in need of baked goods that will make the purchase from the other guy.  I don't make purchases based on political or social issues, but many do.  Not sure if this is the intended result, but it seems like it's gonna be a win-win for the bakers and a win for the couple.
 
2013-02-05 07:47:45 AM
This is going to be the gayest wedding ever.
 
2013-02-05 07:48:29 AM
And as far as abominations go, my favorite ones are here:

Proverbs 6:16-19
There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.

I wonder if the baker makes sure he doesn't serve any liars as well?

Plus, that passage is really all about condemning idolatry, not homosexuality, really...

Did he use fresh "cream" cheese icing on it?
 
2013-02-05 08:17:16 AM
What is up with these bakers not serving queers? We had some cupcake shop in Indy do that same shiat. You know, I ain't queer, and I ain't got nothing against them being queers, but by gawd, I'd sell the queers some friggin' cake if they want it.

Think about it from Paul's perspective in modern times... Your a back country hick from say... BFE Oklahoma and never been so much as to OK City... One day, a preacher comes around... He sets up a revival tent on a hill outside your town. You go and see what all the fuss is about and see he's pulling people up on stage, laying hands on them and healing their ailments, feeding the hungry audience with some fish sandwiches, passing out water and wine... The whisper in the crowd is that all this is possible because he's some sort of prophet, or demigod... Seeing is believing and you just witnessed a miracle or and his words are moving... he says he's going to the big city to heal the corruption there and looking for some followers... this is it, this is your calling...

<OK City montage of events>

Through a series of events in the montage, you're now the associate of a wanted terrorist and the police are closing in... the preacher, now labeled as a fundamentalist terrorist leader gathers his most trusted second-in-commands. He reveals that the organization has been infiltrated by a mole who is acting as a paid informant to the feds, and that by morning he will be caught, tried, and executed so his trusted command must proliferate the most holy message to the rest of the world. Each commander is to head in a different direction and tell of his sacrifice, that he is a martyr for God. He assigns you to go to New York City and spread the word to the worst sinners you can think of...

<Montage of the journey to NYC>

You arrive in NYC and and start asking around "Hey, where's the worst hive of scum and villainy around here?" and someone directs you to Studio 54... Through some small miracle, maybe it's your authentic country bumpkin outfit complete with southern accent, or maybe Steve Rubell found your rugged country looks hot, but he lets you in the door AND gives you the VIP treatment... Suddenly, you are privy to ALL the debauchery of 1978 Studio 54 front and back of the house... You've heard stories of "homosexuals", "Orgies and Sex Parties", and "Partying", but could never accurately picture in your mind what that would entail... and here you are... standing in the odor of sex, drugs, alcohol... the music is pounding in your head, there are men and women touching you, their sweat and pheromones permeating your senses... you drank something a couple of minutes ago and now the room is spinning... maybe someone is performing magic in here, or maybe the devil himself is the DJ, or maybe it was that white powder on the mirror, but suddenly your heart is pounding, your head is spinning, and you begin to panic...

Yeah...

You're going to write home about this place, this den of lust and evil, and warn the other country folk back home to stay away... that there's work here you HAVE to do

Studying on this, I see that this Goldman is a publicity savvy opportunist. In wondering about the logistics of this, I see that he's going to milk this situation for a episode of his TV show to improve his ratings. Obviously he's not going to bake a cake in Baltimore and schlep it all the way out to Oregon, he's going to rent a kitchen out there and bake it in Portland. So in an episode of his TV show we'll get the entire background with the feel good story of how Duff Goldman came to rescue of the two lovebirds after the mean old fundie tried to ruin their wedding. Yes, they will get a free wedding cake out of it, but Goldman gets his name in the news. Good for the gay agenda, good for the lesbos, good for Goldman's ratings.

And another big slap at the fundies. How dare they have different standards than the liberals. And don't think they won't notice, they just love sh*t like this. If Duff Goldman was just a baker and not a TV guy, would he have done this? I can't imagine the dyke wedding trade in the Baltimore area is big enough to risk pissing the fundies off , a la Chick-Fil-A. If it works out like it did in that scenario, Aaron Klein and Sweetcakes will probably benefit also, being the man who stood up for his religious convictions and all that.
 
2013-02-05 08:33:56 AM
its all about tolerance...apparently the ghey are intolerant to his beliefs. why is we worry about muslim sensitivities and not christians?
 
2013-02-05 08:36:23 AM
Everything is super when you're gay!  And free apparently!

I wish teh gay would go back into the freaking closet. I'm sick to death of hearing about how picked on they are.
Geezus...

If you don't LOVE US then we'll FORCE you to LOVE US!.

Get over it already.  Some people ARE NOT GOING TO LIKE YOU!  EVAR.  ACCEPT IT and stop trying to ram your gay crap down our throats.,   (ewww)
And if a business doesn't want to make you a freaking cake, that's completely up to them.

I know, lets elect a female president next, then a gay black female president and we will have covered all of our bases and equality will spew forth from the bowels of the earth.

My wife bought a Charm City cake for a friend as a wedding present (in the shape of a motorcycle gas tank,
since her friend is into motorcycles), and the cake was OK.  She never got to meet Duff, but did get to talk
to Mary Alice, who was quite friendly and pleasant to deal with.

And an ex-Coworker of mine ended up working there and was on camera several times during the later
seasons of the show.

I mentioned that after the original article. The guy has tattoos, an earring, makes cakes for a living, and painted the walls of his bakery pink. Not to stereotype, but... yeah.
