Homophobic bakery finds itself in a sticky situation
(How can people not believe in Bert and Ernie?)
Christian-run Ashers Baking Co is in Northern Ireland, the only place in the UK where gay marriage is still illegal, but even so, apparently the bun-faced haterz have been sent a stern letter by the Equalities Commission threatening legal action if they don’t ice the message.
The request for the cake came back in May, apparently made by a LGBT activist. The bakery is being backed up by the Christian Institute, which calls for extremely specific new laws to protect small bakeries from gay marriage. In a statement they said:
'The case proves the need for the law to reasonably accommodate family-run businesses with firmly held beliefs.’
Daniel McArthur from Ashers Gay-hate-ery bakery added:
'We thought that this order was at odds with our beliefs. It certainly was in contradiction of what the Bible teaches.’
Hmm, well with that logic, they would only make cakes featuring King Herod and thousands of dead babies. Or a jolly frosted representation of the story of King David’s son Amnon, who raped his half sister and then was brutally murdered by her brother in a revenge attack. FESTIVE!
What has cake got to do with beliefs anyway? MAKE A GAY CAKE, YOU SPONGE BRAINS.
