Victoria: go to the grocery store... buy two boxes of betty crocker cake mix and premade frosting... bake the cake and apply the icing... charge them $500.
Having that sign is what spared you the agony of a frivolous lawsuit. Kudos and thanks for the post and ping.
As a wedding cake baker I have pondered this very situation. My decision, should I ever face it, will be to jack my price up way high, (I have no fixed prices so I can get away with it) and tell them that any one I bake a cake for I spend a lot of time praying for, that they will meet the maker of the universe and get their lives in order.
See my post 15 for another way to get past it.
Pretty sure this eliminates the argument of public accommodation since she is simply providing a commodity, not accommodation.
The people voted for one man, one woman. A judge decided to let homos marry. The left doesn’t put up with this, why do we? God bless this woman for doing what’s right.
Does this mean shirtless and shoeless people can sue a restaurant for refusing them service?
If a person refuses service due to a religious conviction, how can a legitimate court deny that persons freedom of religion?
So thoughtless of James Madison to leave "freedom of religion" out of the Bill of Rights.
The whole point of gay rights is to punish Christians for their beliefs.
And to Destroy the Church .
Don’t forget Taco’s.

Even if you are correct legally (but baking cakes in her home doesn't sound like "providing accomodation" to me), this reminds me of Rosa Parks. It was illegal for her to sit in the front of the bus but she did it anyway. What's right can be much more important that what's deemed illegal.
From a legal standpoint, could the baker make the cake but use salt instead of sugar? Or put Bible verses condemning homosexuality and advocating marriage between a man and a woman on the cake? Would that qualify as “discrimination”?
I know a Catholic priest who has laughed about this as he has said he would happily die before ever doing such a thing.
He was not kidding in the least.
shouldn’t the first amendment, i.e. freedom of religion trump two homosexuals >mental disorder> in this case and any other case?
YES IT SHOULD
homosexuals did this two Catholic charities too.
Two mentally disturbed homo’s said they wanted to play family so they went to get a kid.
Of course they chose Catholic charities knowing full well they would be refused and then they sued yet again thus closing down the adoption agency and therefore kids losing out due to the selfish disturbed acts of those homosexuals
Absolutely true. I call it "gay conquest."
maybe it is time for normal couples to go into their places and then sue when they refuse us.
Their websites have many places listed in various towns and cities where businesses are owned by queers.
Infact on some of their websites they have and encouraged queers to move into certain towns just to push laws to advance their agenda.
They really are sick and it takes all of us to stand up to their radical mental perverted agenda
It is in some states, from a legal perspective. I doubt Iowa is one of them.
What if a couple of leather S&M types came in and asked her to do cakes in the exact semblance of male and female genitalia, or with whips and torture depicted on top? Are you saying she'd have to do these as well?
