Who makes a "support gay marriage" cake anyway?

So let's get this gay marriage thing going!  Shall we call our elected representatives?  No, how about we go to the media to present our side?  NO!  Wait, I got it!  We'll get a cake made!  BRILLIANT!

"the case proves the need for the law to reasonably accommodate family-run businesses with firmly held beliefs".

Nice to see that England can still learn something from its petulant and rebellious children in America.  Too bad it's the wrong lesson.

"I feel if we don't take a stand with this case, then how can we stand up against it further down the line?"

MacArthur is part right, they shouldn't have to take it, because it's their choice to bake it, so they'll never have that take that stand again, oh no.

See, the cake *IS* a lie.

The cake was (now ironically) for Anti-Homophobia day in a part of the UK that doesn't allow gay marriage. I'd also be willing to bet a $3 bill that this wasn't the single pronged approach to marriage equality as your post suggests.

Oh, good lord.  If some asshole doesn't  want the job, just get someone else.  You don't have to argue with everyone about everything.

They have weird laws over there.  Hell before the revolution Americans had to go to a pie shop in Baltimore to get married. The lines were so long you couldn't even get a pie most days.

Dear bakery, stop being bigots.
Dear gay people, stop trying to buy your cakes from bigots.  Even if they cave and make it for you, would you really want to eat it?  Assholes probably put rat turds in it.  Tell the bigots to fark off and go find a sensible bakery.

Those black boys in Nashville should have just gone to a different lunch counter where people didn't hate them.

Why, no, of course not - that would be "dickish". You should just stifle your silly desire for equal treatment, and go home.
You are bothering the rest of us while we are trying to watch "American Idol".

Isn't a good rule of thumb to never let someone who hates you prepare your food?

/Ernie and Bert were not gay.
//Neither were Felix and Oscar who they were styled after.
\Not sure about the latter couple.

Funny, there was a time when I thought that the fundamentalist "Bible Baptists" that went on and on about Bert and Ernie being a gay couple were just strange. (The same group was anti-vax way before anyone saw Jenny McCarthy naked because they thought that letting the health department give your kid a shot for any reason was a way for the kid to get secretly RFID chipped as the mark of the beast, I shiat you not!)

Ask a kid watching Sesame Street who Bert and Ernie are, they will tell you that they are friends who live in the same house.  They are pbviously based on the play/movie/television show the Odd Couple and represent the Felix and Oscar of Sesame Street, showing that two people with clearly different hobbies and priorities can learn to get along and live together.  They are not the Steve and Steve gay married couple (not that there is a thing wrong with that concept, but honestly, if you watch Sesame Street, you will notice that they simply do not address adult interpersonal relationships at all.  They, unlike the perverts that come up with this nonsense, don't think it's appropriate to discuss those things with preschoolers.  Whether it's Bert and Ernie being gay, or the notion that Gordon might take up with a white Mrs., they simply do not discuss such matters on the show!)

As for Bert and Ernie being gay, they don't even sleep in the same bed, so it's all in your heads morons.  Get your filthy minds out of the gutter you sex obsessed theist extremists!  Geez.  Not every damn thing in life has to be about sex, especially a show designed to teach kids preschool skills like getting along, telling the truth, and recognizing colors, shapes, letters, numbers.  Oh, yeah, I guess that would be offended to people that still think that people should isolate themselves from anyone different and only need enough education to read their Bibles!
 
2014-07-08 10:03:22 AM  
While people have a right to believe gay marriage is good, other people also have a right to belief that it is not.  We should stop trying to force businesses to support something they don't believe in.  Go down the street and get the cake from someone who either supports gay marriage or doesn't give a f*** (like most people) and wants to make money selling cakes.

I don't have to support your gay or straight marriage, but I have the right to choose what I do and do not support.

To The Escape Zeppelin!: Am I the only one who always assumed that Bert and Ernie were brothers?


When I was a little kid, I figured they were cousins or something. Hell, they slept in the same bed and everything just like I did when my cousins came over to visit. I slept in the same bed with my brother until I was 7.

I understand your point, they do indeed deserve fair and equal treatment.  But it isn't about being dickish, it's about self-preservation.

no. I did too because Earnie seemed like the annoying little brother.  Since I was the annoying little sister in my family, I would know.

Subby, how did you manage to end up with a longer headline with less information?  That's some kind of talent.

It's not their fault Burger king is lobbying hard to get dolphin back on the menu.
Also this is happening in the UK.

HotWingConspiracy: Why do they have to drag Bert & Ernie in to this?


Good point.  I know everyone thinks Bert and Ernie are gay, but I'm sure that wasn't the intent of their characters on Sesame Street - or maybe I'm just naive.

But I think a private business should be able to refuse certain jobs for whatever reason they can think of.  If they don't like big dicks, they shouldn't be required to make a cake in the shape of a big dick.  If they don't support gay marriage, let them refuse to make a wedding cake for a gay couple.

There are probably trademarks at stake here anyway.

Wouldn't give a shiat, for either of those.  They can't take a dump in my lunch.
