Last year it happened in Iowa, Now another bakery is the subject of a protest over refusing to cater to a gay couple getting married. This time it’s two men in Colorado, as reported by Gateway Pundit and CBS News:
It’s an Obama world… Chuck your freedoms out the window.
The lavender mob is targeting a baker because he won’t bake a cake for a gay wedding… at his business… that he built.
He says he will close down first.
The gay mafia wants their cake.
The poor baker forgot this is the Age of Obama. You gotta check your religious beliefs at the door. They don’t mean anything in Obama’s America.
CBS News reported:
Chick-fil-A’s president recently spoke out against same-sex marriage, sparking a huge uproar in the gay community, and now the issue is spilling over to a Colorado bakery, CBS Denver station KCNC-TV reports.
The owner of Masterpiece Cake Shop in Lakewood refused to bake a wedding cake for a local same-sex couple, and now people are pushing a boycott against the owner.
Shop owner Jack Phillips probably didn’t think he was going to be wading into a civil rights debate when he told the couple that he would not make a cake for their wedding, but that’s exactly what has happened.
Dave Mullin and Charlie Craig said they dated for nearly two years before getting engaged. They went into the Masterpiece Cake Shop thinking they’d spend a full day trying cakes for their ceremony. Instead the meeting lasted a few seconds.
“My first comment was, ‘We’re getting married,’ and he just shut that down immediately,” Craig said.
Mullin and Craig were stunned. They went online and posted their experience on Facebook. The response has been huge.
Dozens of protesters gathered outside the shop on Saturday and were very angry.
Does this sound familiar? A lesbian couple in Iowa was also outraged that a Christian woman who runs a bakery would stand on her faith in Christ and not bake a cake to celebrate their gay marriage:
Lesbian couple Trina Vodraska and Janelle Sievers went to Victoria Childress for their wedding cake. At a taste-testing appointment they were told that she wouldn’t do it for them because it conflicts with ther Christian beliefs.
Said Childress: “I didn’t do the cake because of my convictions for their lifestyle. It is my right as a business owner. It is my right, and it’s not to discriminate against them. It’s not so much to do with them, it’s to do with me and my walk with God and what I will answer (to) him for.”
The couple says it was degrading: “It was like she chastised us for wanting to do business with her. I know Jesus loves me. I didn’t need her to tell me that. I didn’t go there for that. I just wanted to go there for a cake.”
Video interview with Childress HERE.
Local bakers are weighing in on the issue, some noting that Childress is just a dumb businesswoman, others noting that she just isn’t a real Christian:
Dana Schaub and Cythia Hendrickson are co-owners of The Devilsih Pig Bakery. Together, they say, what happened was not right.
“To have someone say, ‘Well I’m sorry because your lifestyle is different from mine, I’m not going to take care of you and help you. And I don’t want your business,’ It’s wrong on so many levels,” said Schaub. Hendrickson said proclaimed Christians shouldn’t judge. “As Christians, we are supposed to be unselfish, and do things for the greatest good of mankind, and not pass judgment,” said Hendrickson.
I guess there’s not enough dough in the world to make them cave! Please pray for these two businesses standing up for God’s Word.
