Bert and Ernie Gay Marriage Cake Leaves Christian Bakery Facing Court Threat 07 Jul 2014
A Christian-run bakery is facing legal action from a Government agency for refusing to produce a cake carrying a picture of the Sesame Street characters Bert and Ernie and the slogan support gay marriage.
Ashers Baking Co, based in Newtownabbey, Northern Ireland, cancelled an order for a novelty cake with a picture of the puppets arm in arm printed onto the icing saying that it went against the directors religious beliefs. They believe that producing the cake with the slogan and the logo of QueerSpace, a gay rights group the would-be customer supports, would amount to endorsing the campaign for the introduction of gay marriage in the province, and go against their religious convictions.
But the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland has now written to the firm claiming that it is breaking the law.
A letter signed by the legal office orders the firm to remedy your illegal discrimination within seven days or be taken to court by the commission.
It claimed that refusing to print the cake amounted to discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation against the man who placed the order.

But I thought Ernie told Rubber Ducky that he was the one.
Isn’t that copyright infringement? Or are copyrights void internationally?
The sodomites are actively seeking out Christian businesses only for the chance to sue them. This shoe could be put on the other foot, except it would probably be difficult to find a judge who would support the Christian’s right to not support sodomy and perversion.
This is laying the groundwork for the followers of Christ to be barred from the marketplace during the Tribulation.
Come here to America where ... oh, wait, never mind.
I’d tell ‘em to grow up and bake their own d*mn cake.
They were fishing for trouble. They were looking for someone to tell ‘em “No, thanks.”
that Ernie..what a slut!
Does that mean someone can expect a Muslim grocer to have pork chops and bacon?
Oh, I was wrong. I was thinking religious not sexual orientation.
unless you’re a public corporation, or a slave, you have the right to decide where, when, and with whom you ply your trade.
are te people of Ireland slaves to governmental whims?
I sure hope it’s a Muslim bakery.
The homos could have simply gone to another cake maker but they had to make a statement, these homos are serious narcissists like Odinga.
I have a feeling that these homos think they can get away with anything. Sooner or later (hopefully sooner) someone is going to cross the line into violence and it’s all the homos’ fault with their ridiculous pride and celebration of their degenerate activities.
Who would want to buy food from someone that has been forced to serve you? The possibilities for sabotage are endless!
They wouldn’t dare ask because they know they might not make it to the “Write a snarky letter” stage.
“Does that mean someone can expect a Muslim grocer to have pork chops and bacon?”
Call up your local Halal Meat market and ask them
Businesses are being attacked one-by-one and driven to spend enormous amounts of money in hopes of driving them to compliance or out of business. Such will be the case for pro-gun citizens as well.
Ask them if they'll cater a pig roast for a queer wedding. Leave a NAMBLA phone number.
Does the bakery have license to profit from the Sesame Street characters in this form?
So the government is forcing this baker to violate trademark laws?
“ime to borrow a page from the Leftist handbook and boycott,”
Use their handbook but no boycotts. Instead go to their bakeries and order cakes that say marriage is between one man and one woman. Then sue them if they don’t produce.
The cake shop owner should say that infringes on The Children’s Television Workshop’s trademarked characters...
“Sorry, we don’t reproduce copyrighted figures on cakes”
Bakers should just keep their mouths shut and make a damn cake that doesnt taste or look very good and wash their hands of these douchbags. Dont make the cake obviously terrible, but make it just bad enough that its on a par with, say, Duncan Hines. In fact, use a bunch of Duncan Hines cake mixes and cans of pre-made crappola icing off the shelves of Walmart. When they demand their money back, give it back to them without complaint; afterall, you used the cheapest crappola ingredients possible. Just make sure you have a standard contract that everyone signs that limits damages to the actual amount paid and no more.
