-Pastor Who Requested ‘Anti-Gay Marriage’ Cake Threatened with Legal Action?

This is the flip side of the usual situation and yet it is the Christian who is in trouble regardless. Quite a few Christian bakery owners who refused to produce cakes for same-sex marriages have gotten in trouble all across America. In this case a pastor asked a bakery for a cake with an ‘anti-gay marriage’ message (“We do not support gay marriage”) and the baker refused but it is the pastor who may face legal trouble instead. From Breitbart:

The latest skirmish in an ongoing battle between Christians and gay rights campaigners began when pastor Josh Feuerstein called Cut the Cake in Longwood, Florida to request a sheet cake with the slogan “We do not support gay marriage” written on it.

Sharon Haller, owner of Cut the Cake, who took the call, asked Feuerstein whether the request was a prank (it took place on April 1st), before refusing to bake the cake saying “We wouldn’t do that, sorry”. She then hung up without explaining her reasons.T

he brief call was recorded by Feuerstein who then turned to the camera to give his views on the debate currently taking place.

Feuerstein posted the video to YouTube, …

(The Bakery owner) …threatened to take Feuerstein to court, and is reported to have already reached out to the FBI to investigate whether charges could be brought against Feuerstein for a hate crime.

Response: I really do not like the pastor’s action in this case since it may have hurt the bakery’s business. Yet, even though this incident supposedly hurt her business, the bakery owner put the offending ‘hate speech’ video up on their business website after the pastor took it down from YouTube? In the end, both parties claim to have received numerous unwanted threatening phone calls and the baker is looking into suing the pastor over it all.

My take is that gay and LGBT activists have become involved in this case and are encouraging the bakery owner to take it way beyond where anyone intended for it to go originally. It has become a ‘cause celebre’ on hundreds of progressive LGBT support sites.

In the mean time, the pastor is being investigated for some kind of ‘hate crime’? None of this make any sense anymore and free speech and religious liberty are continuing to be compromised when it comes to the same-sex marriage issue. Now opposing it in anyway is considered to be ‘hate speech’?           *Top

    This is how the values of society change, in the current bakery events it’s about exhorting the culture toward inclusion of gay people into the main stream of those having rights against being discriminated. Like race, ethnicity, age, and gender, we are moving toward the inclusion of gay people. I celebrate this. As such, people will have no right to refuse service to gay people, but they certainly will have the right to refuse to anyone for any reason beyond the status issues mentioned, and that includes “hate speech”.
