"Cathy Miller, the owner of Tastries in Bakersfield, was approached by a lesbian couple who demanded a cake celebrating their wedding, with figurines of two women on the top of it. Although Ms Miller sent them to another bakery where they could obtain it, the lesbian couple (who were undoubtedly LGBT activists being aggressive) sued for “discrimination” and won a huge damages award. Cathy went on appealing and has finally had HER rights as a Christian upheld by Judge David Lampe, who pointed out that Tastries has a right to freedom of conscience under the US constitution.
A cake that celebrates or promotes a certain belief is not just a cake: it is a statement, and therefore free speech rights apply. Freedom of speech includes the right NOT to say something. as well as the right to say it. Thank God there are still some judges left who have the intelligence and the courage to stand up to the LGBT bullies!
We hope that Ms Miller will now be able to re-open her business and that many other Christian businesses will be able to operate without harassment.
At last the tide is turning in America. We hope this slap-down for greedy lesbian bullies will be followed by many more such judgements following the important precedent that Judge David Lampe has now established.”
What if was an interracial heterosexual marriage? Are you saying he wouldn't give gays a cake because they are getting married? Also they claim that by giving them a cake they are participating in a wedding...and have turned gay couples away before: https://www.lgbtqnation.com/2017/12/california-sues-bakery-discriminating-sex-couples/
Sounds like it isn't "supporting a message" but plain homophobia: https://www.lgbtqnation.com/2017/08/baker-cant-understand-people-dont-like-homophobia/
