Love wins "f@g"

This is classic. A man orders a wedding cake and then adds the derogatory comments himself. Calls the media and sues the store is now reviled to be a complete sham. Best part...he is a pastor. You gotta love stories like this.

The openly-gay pastor in Austin, Texas, who said Whole Foods wrote a homophobic slur on his cake, has now dropped his lawsuit and said the company “did nothing wrong.”

Jordan Brown, who made the allegations a month ago, said at the time he ordered a cake with the writing “Love Wins” and received a cake that said “Love Wins Fag.”


Mr. Brown sued Whole Foods alleging discrimination, hoping to shed light on his cause. Whole Foods vigorously denied the claim and said the team member who prepared the cake for Mr. Brown was, in fact, an LGBTQ member of the community herself. Whole Foods, in return, sued Mr. Brown.

On Monday, according to the local television station KVUE News, Mr. Brown said in a statement he was “wrong to pursue this matter and use the media to perpetuate this story.”

“I want to apologize to Whole Foods and its team members for questioning the company’s commitment to its values, and especially the baker associate who I understand was put in a terrible position because of my actions,” Mr. Brown said in his statement Monday. “I apologize to the LGBT community for diverting attention from real issues. I also want to apologize to my partner, my family, my church family, and my attorney.”

Good point.

The Trumpeteers are on a real whining binge right now. The way they are acting, you'd think their guy lost.

It was sent to me today, sorry I didn't check the date. Still funny. I blame Putin. He probably hacked my news feed as a distraction. He is sneaky like that.

Doesn't change the fact that a pastor created "hate cake" and was totally busted. That is awesome.
