Skip to comments.Local bakery refuses to make rainbow cupcakes for gay customer

An Indianapolis bakery is under fire from the gay and lesbian community over a choice not to serve a diversity group.
A campus organization said it was denied service in what's become a flashpoint in the fight for equal rights.
This is what they were after: a mulitcolored cupcake to celebrate "National Coming Out Day" next month; a rainbow confection to honor the diversity on the campus of IUPUI. But the student who had the order placed at Just Cookies was told no.
"We're right on the cusp of being equal with anyone else, I don't know why they would do that," said student Shan Parker.
That student's partner and close friend are both troubled by the refusal. They believe it shows Indianapolis has a ways to go to embrace the gay and lesbian community.
"They weren't asking to petition for anything, they were just ordering cupcakes for an event," said Rebecca Scherpelz.
Fox59 went to City Market to get the business's side of the story, Just Cookies, but we didn't get just one version of what happened.
"Look around, we don't have cupcakes," said owner Lilly Stockton.
Stockton said she talked to someone who did ask for rainbow cookies but couldn't accommodate the order.
Stockton: "I don't have enough colors to do that."
Reporter: "Not enough colors, not because you didn't like what they stood for?"
Stockton: "She didn't tell me what it was for."
Then we talked to her husband David, who gradually made it clear that there was an earlier order... and yes, the customer was refused.
"I explained we're a family-run business, we have two young, impressionable daughters and we thought maybe it was best not to do that," said co-owner David Stockton.
"Values" is the same word used in the other argument.

Gee, it never occurred to them to find another bakery.
I smell a setup.
I would have thought they’d have preferred fudge instead of cup cakes.
See what runaway liberalism and political correctness has done to America...?? Oh, wait till Oprah gets hold of this kleenex-drenching gay sob story.
“Make your own, cupcake.”
And they know better than people outside the community that the sorts of things they are really demanding approval of are such as this:
I hate to even post that link. It makes me sick.
“A campus organization said it was denied service in what’s become a flashpoint in the fight for equal rights”
The “rights” of everyone but the baker...
“on the cusp”
I don’t think so.
I think “comming out day” is the same as “get the heck out” or “pay your own damn tuition and board and insurance and bills” day.
This is no different than asking for sexually explicit shaped cookies.
Why didnt the fudgers go to another bakery instead of throwing a hissy fit?
“Tolerate” does not equal “embrace”. For years the homosexual community has said that they just want tolerence shown to them.
We, as a society, do tolerate them.
Now they want to be “embraced”. Tough. Just because I don’t want to hang you (see your buddies in Islam for that), doesn’t mean that I want to embrace your lifestyle.
F them, this is the absurdity of forcing private businesses to serve interest groups
I guess they missed the “We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason” sign behind the counter. Mr. Private business owner can refuse service to anyone he damn well pleases!
Gays: SUBMIT OR DIE BREEDERS!!!!
I would have just said they were for a kid’s party or something and called it good.
“Almost on the cusp with being equal to everyone else” Now THAT is quite a statement. Someone should assure this bozo that they are quite UN-equal to the majority of the population. They are a minority of our population, and a majority does NOT want to be equal to them, morally or otherwise, and is not seeking their inner “homo-ness”
That’s their goal... force us all- “you WILL call us normal”.
Good. It's about time normal people stood up to these freaks and used their OWN rights for a change.
There is no tolerance for homosexuals. The politicians are trying to force tolerance on the electorate, but the thought police will never be able to control every ones thought process no matter how hard they try.
Homosexuality is a disgusting fetish, and most people are clearly aware of that. There's nothing "normal" about it.
This is what Homo-Leninists do!
WAAAAA you wont do it for me Ill make you because I am just too good.
Oh, and we dont like free enterprise, freedom of expression or association (for others) if you dont/wont do what I want.
