Officials in Indianapolis are turning up the heat on a bakery that refused to take an order from a student group seeking rainbow-colored cupcakes for next month's National Coming Out Day.
A spokesman for Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard said city officials are conducting an inquiry into the bakery, Just Cookies, which declined to take the order last week from a diversity group at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI), which ordered the cupcakes for Oct. 11.
"The city's position is, it's the city's market, it's a public place," mayoral spokesman Robert Vane told FoxNews.com. "There is no litmus test for buying services of products at the City Market."
Just Cookies owner Lilly Stockon defended her bakery's decision last week, first telling Fox 59 that the shop doesn't make cupcakes, and then telling a reporter that she didn't have sufficient materials to make the the rainbow colors.
But her co-owner husband, David Stockton, said he had a different reason for refusing to take the order.
"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," he told Fox 59.

It’s pretty clear that the government is not going to do anything to put this right. Who will?
How about National Shut the &^%$ Up and Keep It In Your Pants and Out of My Face Before I Cut It Off Day?
Next time someone asks what harm gay marriage will do, show them this. And tell them to google Scott Brockie.
How is it that dangerous behaviors like smoking are discouraged through national ad campaigns... and dangerous behavior like same sex sex is encouraged by our government?
Lifespan of gay men 24 years shorter:
Smoker is only 18 years shorter:
That’s a lot of words sir. I don’t think I can fit them all on the cupcake you ordered, LOL.
Why can’t they find another place to make their cupcakes?
Why would they? When they can shut down this place.
ANY BUSINESS DOES NOT SUPPORT AN ACTIVITY, such as homosexual stuff ( homosexuality is not a 'race' ) should NEVER BE FORCED to do so. Making those goodies is a way of showing support. Not taking the order is a way to hurt this business because there will be no positive word of mouth activity for that business-so it can be seen as a sacrifice for principles.
I like that.
If a bunch of animal abusers wanted to place an order and the owner refused no one would complain.
Shame of the weak mayor.
If anyone thinks it can’t happen, they need to consider the case of a small photography studio in Albuquerque that refused to shoot a “committment ceremony” for a lesbian couple. They were fined by state Civil Rights Commission: http://www.adfmedia.org/News/PRDetail/3595
It’s a privately owned business. No different than a Christian not making cupcakes with a devil sign. If I was there, I would order from that business for having the guts to stand up for their own morality. Just a thought
What asshole goes to “Just cookies” and asks for Cupcakes?
I suppose we have a right to sue Kentucky Fried Chicken if they refuse to take my order for Burgers with the @#$ flag stuck in it?
“Just Cookies” is a private business that can accept orders or not as they choose.
How about Swastika cupcakes? Can they turn them down?
Shoot, the old emblem would fit perfectly on a nice round cupcake.
Going to “Just Cookies” for cupcakes is a queer request.
Great new ad based on these statistics.
“Don’t BE a fag, SMOKE one instead. You’ll Live Longer.”
Wait. So there is only 1 baker in Indianapolis?
“Gayness: Kills You Faster than Smoking.”
“Thinking about a little Sodomy? Grab a cigarette instead, you’ll live longer.”
“Skip the anal sex and go straight for the cigarette. For better health.”
Can we get contact info for Mayor Ballard and city officials please?
