Cake Shop Faces Legal Action For Refusing to Make Anti LGBT Cake

Cake Shop Faces Legal Action For Refusing to Make Anti LGBT Cake - Eater Denver

Sorry folks. You're in the business of selling cakes with a 'message', you make the cakes the customer requests.

OR, you get out of the business.
Thanks from skews13 and Hollywood

Because the phrase 'if you don't mind' is out of politeness, not a legal statement.
Thanks from Tony

At first I thought it was that other cake kerflaffle...the one about the refusal to make one for a gay wedding. But, here ya go, the other side of the coin. The lawyers will win...no matter which side they are on!

asking people who don't like you to make your food is always a pretty stupid thing to do.
Thanks from Tony and roastpork

Being in business and NOT wanting to make money is the stupid thing to do. Don't want a profit, get out of the business world.

I had to delete that original answer...because I thought it related to a similar issue. Sorry!

As a gay man may I say?

I worked for an organization that helped write the American Disabilities Act. I also lived through the race riots of the 60's. And yes I am also gay and yes I am also white and also a Christian.
That being said I want to say that IMHO the bakery tired their best to accommodate this man. Yet under the ADA and the Civil Rights Act of 1964. NONE are here in this case.
A business can't refuse service EXCEPT for very specific reasons.NONE are here in this case nor are they valid in the anti-gay bakery/flower seller cases. This bakery is guilty of discrimination based on religious beliefs AND political views. Just like the anti gay ones.

I first saw this on the Denver paper site and want to add the following:
[brenda lee wrote] "well, the gaunlet was cast by the lgbt couples suing B & B s, bakerys, wedding chapels, churches , pastors, etc. that refused to provide services to gay couples….. this is just the other side of the cookie….. the baker is required by LAW to make a cake with anti-gay script on it…..DISTURBING, HUH?
(My comment to Brenda) "Actually Brenda the gauntlet was thrown down in the early 20's in South Africa by a guy named Gandhi. So I guess you figure serving blacks or Jews or Catholics or the Irish or Chinese or German, or Italian at the local diner should have never been allowed? BTW I was alive during the race riots of the 60's and it amazes me that our nation still produces people like you today. I'm so glad they are making so many advances in genetics.

This is an owner refusing to make an ANTI-LGBT cake. Don't you view this as the same thing as refusing to make an ANTI-black cake?
Thanks from imaginethat

I think a business has a right to refuse..

But, Cat, at least you are not a hypocrite.. you were said the same thing when the bakery did not want to make a cake for a same gender wedding.
