In the interests of equity and tolerance, he should be executed for his beliefs.

Why would the baker even know it was for a same sex couple unless they made it a point to tell her and made a big deal about it?

Homosexuals will constantly be pushing the envelope, just to agitate and file lawsuits. Christian pastors that adhere to a Biblical stance vis-a-vis homosexuality will be asked to perform same-sex weddings simply for purposes of agitation and publicity. Of this we can be certain.

In CA Christian landlords are forced to rent to homosexual couples.

Probably no relation to Carroll Baker.

My earlier comment was mistaken. The CA law may be unconstitutional.

In Thomas v. Anchorage Equal Rights Commission, (Ninth Circuit) the court held that landlords may refuse on religious grounds to rent to unmarried couples, despite a state law protecting such couples from housing discrimination. The decision is binding in California and eight other states.

Just watch the video.....the Christian lady is very articulate, kind and firm in her beliefs....

...It seems obvious the gay women sought out the MSM to bring attention to their hurt feelings....

Gee, some people should just grow up...

..you know there has to be plenty of places to buy their stupid cake, but they want to harass this woman because of her convictions.

Oh if it were only that easy. But how can the happy couple be portrayed as the victims in this if they did that?

Just another attempt by CNN to paint Christians as something evil and to promote the homosexual lifestyle as normal. Nothing to see here....move along.

They’ll go beyond that. Any religion that avails itself of tax exempt status will, in the not too distant future, be required to hire a faggot. Probably in Kalifornistan first.

The baker would have to break up two sets of the little figurines that are on the top of the cake. And then could be saddled with an unusable set.

Too much trouble.

So in other words, they made sure the baker knew it was for a same sex couple, hoping to get a reaction they could complain about. They very easily could have ordered the cake and gotten their own cake topper, but that wouldn’t have been as much fun.

I don’t think it’s unreasonable for a couple to expect the baker to put the topper on.

I also think it’s well with in the rights of the baker to tell them where to shove their request.

You are correct. much of these is for the media and the pity me factor.

Or maybe they just figured they'd order the cake they wanted and didn't expect the baker to turn them down. And having been denied then they turned to the victim card. I doubt they went in expecting to be on CNN but they haven't passed on the opportunity.
