Circusdog320: Where did Jesus say love everybody except gay people?


You don't know the story of Jesus asking everyone their sexual preference before he handed out the loaves and fishes?  The gays didn't get a loaf cause making baked goods for gay people promotes their sexual preferences, don't ya know.

Notabunny: fta We thought that this order was at odds with our beliefs. It certainly was in contradiction of what the Bible teaches

God hates fondant


No, god hates sesame street apparently.

ReverendJasen: Dear gay people, stop trying to buy your cakes from bigots.


The problem is we don't know who the bigots are until we try to order a cake.

Ontario recently made it legal for doctors to refuse to prescribe or dispense birth control pills for religious reasons.

I'm gonna invent my own crazy religion that says that blood pressure medication is a sin, and refuse to prescribe it to fat pretentious christians.

Gaylord Fister: "We should stop trying to force businesses to support something they don't believe in."

So stores should be allowed to refuse service to black people?


Or Irish for that matter

If the gays were licensed to carry a pistol this wouldnt be an issue, because the bakery wouldnt even have to let them onto their property.

Equal protection for some........

HoustonNick: 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.


I don't support black people sleeping on the same mattresses as white folks. Stop forcing my motel business to support that.
I don't support Latinos eating sandwiches. Stop forcing my lunch counter to support that.
I don't support infidels riding in my holy taxicab, smelling like pork. Stop forcing me to support that.
Yeah, that'll work.

Yeah. That would be a smart thing for you to do.

What I meant was that, out of all the things he is likely to do, that would probably be one of the smarter ones.

So much this.

And who the hell would WANT a cake baked by somebody who didn't want to bake it?

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


Sadly, I think you might be serious.  Hey?  Remember the old mantra, "We're Here, We're Queer, Get Over It'?   Well, most thinking people have.  The problem is, not everybody WILL, and you're never going to MAKE them.  So why not just go to a different bakery and stop whining about EVERYTHING?  It's a farkin' CAKE.  Or do you really want a cake that some ignorant a-hole is likely to urinate on, or ejaculate into, while he laughs himself silly in the kitchen?  I don't care one way or another to whom you're attracted, but gay people really need to choose their battles more wisely.

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!


If you're getting gay married, doesn't that pretty much point to the fact that you are gay-rights?

big pig peaches: ReverendJasen: 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 are chocolate sprinkles jimmies.


Fixed that for New England.
 
2014-07-08 10:20:43 AM
Why should these people be burdened with others' beliefs? If they don't want to serve gay people, then those people should patronize some other business that will. The former bakery will lose money, and if enough people avoid them, they'll go out of business. Why pick a fight??
 
2014-07-08 10:20:53 AM
Also, the bible mentions homosexuality only twice, but shellfish eight times. I bet you these hypocritical zombie worshippers wouldn't mind making a cake with a shrimp on it.

How many cakes a day do the make for unwed moms and couples living together I wonder. They might as well be the bakery for hell!
 
2014-07-08 10:22:10 AM
Personally, if a company was hesitant to make something I requested, I believe I would go elsewhere. I doubt if they eventually agreed to do it, that it would be up to their normal standards. Not every professional acts professional.
 
2014-07-08 10:22:12 AM
Bert & Ernie are just two eligible bachelors living together since the late '60s. So what if they never dated a woman or probably even spoke to any. Maybe they're just shy fellas.

They slept in the same bed for the first 3-4 years of Sesame Street. I watched that show from day one.

The only right thing to do is legally force them into making the cake, then filing a credit card chargeback because of the spit content of the cake.

/you're not getting a cake without spit or worse in it, via suing someone.

BFletch651: 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.


I completely agree, just arguing with everyone is assholish.   If you don't want the job of baking stuff for the public, don't open your business to the public, it is as simple as that.   Go do private catering or something.   Stop arguing with customers.

Since it's the UK - Tinky Winky, the gay Teletubby, would have been more appropriate.

We used to watch tons of Sesame Street and never once even after the fact, did I ever think that Bert and Ernie are supposed to be gay (NTTAWWT).  Most likely, anyone who has any sort of problem with Sesame Street is the one with the agenda.  My brother and I thought that Bert and Ernie fishing was one of the funniest things ever.  Still pretty funny.

No but if your objective is to manufacture outrage and/or a lawsuit, it's a convenient target.

The bottom line is ... You should never piss-off the people who make your food.  For every one bakery who doesn't want to serve you, there are probably at least 5 more in the vicinity who will be more than happy to.

That's the other thing that bugs me about the gay community.  Where is their 'tolerance' for those who don't agree with their lifestyle?

Tolerance works both ways.

The differences being;

This isn't in the US
They were refused service for being gay, they were told they couldn't have a specific saying on the cake.

I don't like bigots much but the good news is most of the anti gay bigots are from an older generation, once they kick the bucket there won;t be many of them around. I don't think that persuing legal actions against bakeries is going to solve anything.

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


I wish some judge or magistrate would grow a pair and start throwing these stupid-sh*t lawsuits out of court and charging the plaintiffs $$$ for it so people who have a legitimate case could get a court date in under 10 years.

Gaylord Fister: So stores should be allowed to refuse service to black people?


Yes, if freedom of association means anything.   And people who do so should be prepared to face the full responsibility for the loss of business and ill-will that doing so would generate.

As a people, we've forgotten how much power is truly in our hands, versus running to a big government to remake the world as we would like things to be.   Remember that odious bus policy that forced blacks to sit in the back?   Just how was that resolved, the police?   No- it was voluntary boycotts that brought that bus company to its knees.
