Indianapolis Bakery Declines Order for Rainbow Cupcakes, Sparking City Inquiry

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 or 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 rainbow colors.

But her co-owner husband, David Stockton, said he had a different reason for refusing to take the order.

Ah liberals and militant homosexuals, so tolerant, so diverse in allowing various opinions........unless they conflict with their own leftist mantra.

Liberals, militant homosexuals and atheists are the most intolerant, close minded groups in society today. You either do it their way or they will destroy you and your business. No questions asked.

Anyone in the Indy area who agrees with this bakery needs to go by there and do some shopping, show your support. Sounds like a good place to me.

Its called the right of association and even though the gays always love to have their “rights” including invented ones, they do not want anyone else to have them when they conflict with their agenda of the gay caliphate on America.

Just gos to show libs are too lazy to make their own cupcakes.

In a fascist economy, no business is truly independent.

Each must satisfy the dictates of the rulers.

No merchant required to do business. And it should be noted, a special order for rainbow frosting might well cost $200-$300 a cupcake.

The homo-liberal mafia is crazy. If Just Cookies made rainbow cupcakes and refused to sell them to gays, that would be discrimination. But if a business refuses to take a contract for any reason, that’s just a lost opportunity for that business. I’m sick of being told that we “have” to associate with people we don’t like. Isn’t that a form of discrimination in itself?

“”The city’s position is, it’s the city’s market, it’s a public place,” mayoral spokesman Robert Vane told FoxNews.com.”

Shouldn’t that say, “it’s a private business”?, or am I just reading it wrong?

No, it's the private owner's place, you schmuck.

Government can control 'public' places that are OWNED by the public, NOT places that can be accessed by the public.

I'm SO sick of these over-controlling political hacks!

Christian Book and Gift Shop owner Don Toy (right) told host David Croyle that his store was rejected by an advertising agency because the name “Christian” is offensive.

The owner of Kittanning’s only Christian book store said he was denied advertising on a restaurant menu because the name “Christian” is offensive.

Denying an ad for a Christian bookstore is okay but give them the rainbow cupcakes.

If a new-age organic bakery in Berkeley refused to make 100 organic carrot-cake cupcakes for a Tea Party event, would there be an investigation?

When constructed in 1886, the Indianapolis City Market was under direct control of the City of Indianapolis. A “Market Master” was appointed by the mayor, however, the city still remained involved in formulating budgets and other day-to-day management functions.

This relationship lasted until 1988 when an ordinance was passed that established City Market as a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. City Market thus became free of political and municipal influence by this new organizational structure.

Under the ordinance, the city would still own the Market building and property, but a 13-member board of directors would oversee normal operations and assume management responsibility on its behalf. Six directors are appointed by the mayor and seven are appointed by the Indianapolis City-County Council.

The day-to-day operations of the market are overseen by a full-time professional staff. Staff contact information and a listing of the current board members can be viewed by clicking here.

The name of the place is Just Cookies. Now why should an owner be expected to make cupcakes? And why would you try to order cupcakes from a place that makes only cookies? There are many cupcake shops and full bakeries in Indy that would fill their order for cupcakes.

There must be some grudge going on here we don’t know about.

So much for property rights. If a merchant passes on an opportunity to earn a profit, so be it. To force them to do the work is blatant tyranny. The PC thought police can rot in h*ll.

“It's the other proprietor stating his personal views, that's the problem, because that's not the image of the City Market and the image Mayor Ballard is trying to portray,” Vane told FoxNews.com. “That's beyond the pale.”

No, what's beyond the pale is government attempting to force immorality and atheism on people with the force of arms. The proprietor of any business has the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason. Nobody was harmed because they refused to take an order for “fruit cupcakes”. Nobody would even know if the Homo activists weren't calling a press conference. Damn them all.

Remember those signs: no shirt, no shoes no service? Well, they need a new one: No morals, no decency, no cupcakes.

“Its called the right of association...”

That right, along with a multitide of others, went out the window DECADES ago. Now the govt has decided that it can FORCE you to make cupcakes against your will. Diversity and multiculturalism have all but killed freedom in this country.

Remember the notice in many stores years ago?

WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE SERVICE TO ANYONE!

Refusal of service was considered the store owner's right.

It sounds as if the bakery could not fulfill the order anyway, but why would the “diversity group” have to mention what event it was for? Trying to get a reaction?
