Christian Baker Faces Boycott For Refusing to Make Lesbian Cake

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.”

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.

I am sure lesbians can find a good lay-er cake. Please no groans or e-mails. I apologize in advance.

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

“It was degrading,”

No, you were already degraded.

She just chose to not be a party to your perversion.
