Protesters picket Masterpiece Cakeshop's [Denver, CO] anti-gay marriage policy
Denver Westword Blogs ^ | Aug 6 2012 | Kelsey Whipple

Posted on 08/06/2012 4:15:52 PM PDT by scottjewell

As of this morning, an online petition condemning Lakewood bakery Masterpiece Cakeshop for its policy against working with gay weddings has garnered well over 4,000 signatures.

This weekend, for the second Saturday in a row, protesters gathered outside the store in an effort to convince owner Jack Phillips to change his mind. But that's not going to happen anytime soon.

"If I didn't have strong convictions about the issue in the first place, it wouldn't have come up," Phillips tells Westword. "None of the protests or anything will change that."

Sounds like they are harassing this poor hard-working cakeshop owner, simply because he will not bake a cake specifically requested for a gay wedding.

Notice the large crowd of protesters in the photo above ( ;-) )

F them.
I’m sick of these poeple wanting their perversion to be accepted by us.

You know where I stand on them so I won’t go on but the cake maker should tell them to piss off and not back off one bit.

I hope he makes a fortune

Okay people of that area, time to do a chic fil A type show up at this shop to support it. If I lived near there I would go just to help the owners.

If this gets national attention, we might have people ordering pastries from around the nation.

Cookies & brownies ship best.

I’ve got a mind to send the Cake shop owner cash—just an amount to cover a couple of cakes that people didn’t buy because these fascists probably discouraged them from stopping with their Gestapo tactics.

Homosexuals/lesbians are such a hateful, vile group of people-—but the habitual debasing of the human body and of others and calling evil lust—”Love” is so delusional-—it only habituates the treating of others without dignity and respect and encourages this evil behavior and rudeness and hate on others who just want to live their lives the way God designed.

Very sick when you understand our Natural Rights in the US come from that very God that these fascists are trying to erase.

This should work - you can also send them an email.

Jack Phillips creates your cake to order. Custom cakes are his specialty: If you can think it up, he can make it into a cake!

Personally, I think the Denver Cakeshop SHOULD accept a wedding cake order from the happy couple.

Then add a special ingredient, ala “The Help” :)

Even Gore Vidal conceded this point:

Famous For His Hates: The Cool, Witty Gore Vidal NPR: Aug 1, 2012 Chris Bram)

He hit upon an ingenious strategy, arguing that "homosexual" was an adjective, not a noun. There was no such thing as a homosexual person, only homosexual acts.

What this pink journalist at taxpayer funded Letist State Radio acknowledged was an inconvenient truth, not a "ingenious strategy". BLOCKQUOTE

How many of the signers spit on the institution of marriage and want no part of it in their own lives?

My experience from liberal facebook associates is that straight or not, most of them (talking people above the age of 30 and even 45) do not want to be married (or are divorced and want no remarriage).

ODD that persons who dislike the notion of marriage want it redefined. What is their REAL beef? Pink journalists will never dwell on that aspect of the arguments.

He should take the perverts’ cake order, then send them a platter with a drawing instead of a cake...”Fake cake for fake wedding.”

They’re also targeting AMWAY and the DeVos family in Michigan but I don’t think they thought that one through. After all, how do you boycott something you really have to go out of your way to buy?

Exactly.

Sometimes I think the motive is pure litigation and financial awards. Extortion, really.

Yeah, had seen that - thanks for linking again. Really obnoxious and suspicious, as the charges go back to 2009-—but par for the course with these zealots.

What I am thinking about doing is sending money to cover the cost of cookies or brownies which he could then give to a homeless shelter, soup kitchen or maybe a Veteran’s family. Would prefer the latter but would be easier for him if I can find a name and address.
