Posted on 11/16/2011 7:53:28 AM PST by massmike
Pro-gay activists have launched a boycott of an Iowa baker who declined to create a wedding cake for a lesbian couple based on her religious beliefs.
Victoria Childress, the owner of Victorias Cake Cottage in Des Moines, has been accused of being anti-gay, homophobic, and a bigot after she refused to make a cake for Trina Vodraska and Janelle Sievers.
Childress told Fox News & Commentary that she made five cakes for the couple to taste unaware that they were lesbians.
She introduced herself, and I said, Is this your sister? Childress said. She said, No. This is my partner.
At that point Childress told the couple that she would not be willing to make their wedding cake.
I was straight-forward with them and explained that Im a Christian and that I have very strong convictions, she said. I chose to be honest about it. They said they appreciated it and left. That was all that was said. But that wasnt the end of the story. Soon Childress began receiving hateful emails and then the local media called.
Vodraska told KCCI that she was offended by Childress. It was degrading, she told the television station. It was like she chastised us for wanting to do business with her. I know Jesus loves me. I didnt need her to tell me that. I didnt go there for that. I just wanted to go there for a cake.
The pair also released a statement, calling the Christian cake baker a bigot.

His business will easily quadruple because of his principled stand against perversion.
homosexual agenda ping
Watch her business grow instead and watch the perverts rage even more.
guess you can’t have your cake and eat it..
OK, they’ve got their parades - but now they demand that we march in them,too.
“His business will easily quadruple because of his principled stand against perversion.”
Does she do mail order?
I’ll pay the FedEx charges just to stick it to the Man Haters.
What? And miss an opportunity to redefine normalcy as deviant? And deviancy as normal?
"...second, why not go to a different baker?"
Oh, that just proves you're a bigot.
"... Just askin.
And that smarmy remark will get you into court-mandated Diversity Training.
-His business will easily quadruple because of his principled stand against perversion.—
Yep. I had to check the location - Iowa, not SF - before I would agree with you, though. ;-)
Well, she SAID that she’s “anti-gay,” at the very least, so she shouldn’t be surprised to be described in that way.
Question: What are the ingredients of a lesbian cake?
Post 13, I assume you forgot the sarc tag, because you know absolutely nothing about me or my views on the subject.
What does Lesbian Cake taste like????
You are probably right. This same thing happened to a cookie business here in Indianapolis. They refuesed to bake up a special batch of cookies for a gay pride demonstartion. They got the whole media inqisition, protest treatment. Got a lot of publicity. Their cookies sales went throught the roof. Not only were there long lines wrapped around their kiosk but they were getting mail orders from cookies from all around the country.
But on the other hand they impress the media, bureaucrats and legal community, and maybe thats all the gay mob care about.
