Christian Baker Faces Boycott For Refusing to Make Lesbian Cake
http://radio.foxnews.com ^ | 11/16/2011 | Todd Starnes

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 Victoria’s 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 I’m 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 wasn’t 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 didn’t need her to tell me that. I didn’t 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.

There is a principle at work here that has become ensconced in popular culture in the past few years. The more provocateurs of chaos try to force their agenda the more soldiers of Christian culture oppose their vile agenda.

What? And miss an opportunity to redefine normalcy as deviant? And deviancy as normal?

Didn't many establishments have a sign that read:

We reserve the right to refuse service.... or something along those lines.

Does that right no longer obtain?

Asking that question in that tone is....homophobic.

Oh, that just proves you're a bigot.

"... Just askin.

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.

"His business will easily quadruple because of his principled stand against perversion."

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.

Some gays seem to not understand that these kinds of bully tactics rub most of the public the wrong way.

But on the other hand they impress the media, bureaucrats and legal community, and maybe thats all the gay mob care about.

The baker could have done what an amoral leftist would done - take their money, and then bake a really crappy cake, or spit in it or something like that.

Instead, she told them respectfully she couldn’t do it.

There needs to be more evidence presented to establish guilt...hehe Why doesn’t the baker in these cases just say they don’t have time to do it rather than stir up the infidels?

"..why not go to a different baker?"

Since there are plenty of non-judgemental bakers around, this appears to be a targeted attack on a Christian baker.

1964-65 Civil Rights legislation that many here and many talking head GOP simply adore pretty much killed all that freedom for the same reason we now have lesbians insisting...

can't discriminate period against anything minority...anything

discriminate against the perceived majority....white Christians...preferably males...then by all means..dig in

this is where we are and folks under 45 don't know anything else unless they read older books

In some places lesbians are the majority. That makes them exempt from the discrimination laws. Pile it on.

They could make the cake, and then they could go to another store and purchase the “Bride-Bride” thing separately.

But of course, that wouldn’t further their agenda, now would it?
