BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A California judge has ruled in favor of a Christian baker who refused to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple.
The judge denied a motion for a temporary restraining order filed on Wednesday against Cathy Miller, the owner of Tastries Bakery in Bakersfield, California.
According to a press release sent by The Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund, the order would have compelled "Miller to create wedding cakes for LGBT persons, even though doing so would violate her sincerely held religious beliefs."

My suspicions are the same. These are not accidental encounters.
I’d like to read the judge’s reasoning
They bit off more cake than they can chew...
Of course not. In almost every endeavor, it does seem that those involved in the gay culture choose association with members of their community. I saw a suggestion a few months back: These bakers and others who are targeted by the gay community should take the job but tell them that profits from the transaction will be given to a (choose one) Christian group that opposes gay marriage.
That misses the point of the refusal to inscribe.
The judge denied a TRO. This is not over for the bakery, not by a long shot.
It’s still a good move.
The natives are also restless. They are going to put up with bullshit only so long.
It misses the point but it night defer them from the real goal of destroying Christian-oriented businesses. I submit the troublemakers wouldn’t do this if they knew their money would be used against their agenda.
The Mrs and I have had a few conversations about this. We both personally feel that the people should just bake them a cake.
However, if the government uses it’s hammer to force people to violate their honest personal religious beliefs, we have a problem. There is no harm in not baking a cake or partaking in a homosexual ceremony. No ones rights are violated, just go elsewhere!
And yes, the gaystapo searches out places for just this purpose.
No, we need to support Christians standing pat. No halfway for their rights if we want blessing. No confused compromise.
Certainly it's of benefit to the bakery but this is the first round only. The Supreme Court decision this summer is going to be the key milestone.
A California judge we’re talking about here. This is earth-shaking, so put all your breakables down low.
I’m surprised it took your post, #17, to point out the Big Deal here, i.e., that this was a judge in CALIFORNIA.
Certainly the government cannot force me.
Let's say I got an invitation and have these beliefs and not only RSVP...but put the reason as "don't believe in same sex marriage" on the RSVP. Could my "friends" take me to court?
Queers don’t have weddings. Queers have contract signings
