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.

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?
Similar to crab cakes.
Very fat. And bitter.
“Thou shalt not bear false witness.”
Puleez - this is Freereublic - sometimes the sarc tag is just not necessary.
(Do people ordinarily have to tell you something is a joke right after the punch line?)
Trina Vodraska and Janelle Sievers
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.
Prefer not to think about it.
Not a clear winner based on looks at all in this case.. lol
We have a winner!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And could just THE POST OF THE DAY!
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.
I don’t think we want to know!
