Skip to comments.'Gay cake' row: born-again Christian bakers lose court appeal [Northern Ireland]

A bakery in Northern Ireland owned by evangelical Christians has lost an appeal to overturn a conviction that found it guilty of discrimination for refusing to bake a pro-gay-marriage themed cake.
The court of appeal in Belfast on Monday upheld a previous judgment last year that Ashers Bakery had discriminated against a customer on the grounds of sexual orientation.
The family-owned firm in the original case was also ordered to pay £500 compensation to the local gay rights activist Gareth Lee, whose legal action was backed by the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland.
Lee had tried to buy a cake depicting the Sesame Street characters Bert and Ernie below the motto Support gay marriage for an event to mark International Day Against Homophobia in 2014.

Tell me, where is sanity?
Make them the cake just add exlax.
So, now it’s not just wedding cakes, it messages which are going to be forced.
Invent a situation,
get it endlessly published,
get a rule incorporated (it doesn't have to be a law),
have the rule challenged,
pay off the judge and deny the challenge,
the law soon follows.
And all of Satan's minions roar with laughter because, never forget ... it is MAN (God's creation) Satan hates ... not just Christians.
And go to prison for assault.
The courts are largely counter culture activists.
Best we act accordingly.
Step #1...accept the job.Step #2...don't require any payment until after the "ceremony".Step #3...make sure the cake,the photography,the flowers are so abysmal that the perverts express their outrage and refuse to pay the tab.Step #4...apologize profusely (of course you won't *mean* what you're saying) and agree that of course they need not pay.
What you've accomplished is that it's guaranteed that no pervert "couple" will ever again want to use your service.
But it does not do anything to reverse the societal attack.
I find it curious that we NEVER hear of a Muslim-owned business being sued in this manner.
Remember when this was all pushed as being nothing more than consenting adults wanting to be left alone in their own private affairs, and that opposition was, “legislating morality?”
No proof evidence gone.
Flaw in your thinking: most male florists are gay.
Uh, most people save some cake. THAT is the evidence.
Better to be up-front with your principles and face the consequences.
May as well shoot them, then. Say you were in fear for your life.
True enough...but it *is* a way for individuals who might otherwise be steamrolled by the pervert lobby can fight back.
It is ironic since the citizens of Ireland can partly blame the Kennedy clan that, like an infectious germ, came here and poisoned our society, and now the liberal damage they inflicted on the US has gone back across the Atlantic to roost.
Not really a "flaw".I'm talking about those who wish to avoid participating in sham "weddings".Pervert florists are free to participate.My strategy is for those whose morals and decency forbid them from participating.
Excellent point.There are two ways to approach the question.One way to see it is that the pervert community knows that Christians who are challenged won't come to firebomb your house whereas moslems most certainly will.
The other way you can see it is that Christianity and Christians morals are the targets of both moslems *and* the pervert lobby.It's the old "the enemy of my enemy" thing.
