    It was on the news again last night. Someone had gone to a Denver area baker and wanted a decorated cake made like a Bible and saying something like "God hates gays" on the cake.

    The baker refused. (I would have refused it also, just as I would refuse to do a gay wedding cake.) However, according to the news, the lawsuit brought by the person requesting the cake on the grounds of discrimination was tossed by the state since the "baker found the wording offensive."

    Seems the baker cannot be forced to bake a cake he finds offensive in this case, but can if he finds doing a gay wedding cake offensive.

    Customer says he will appeal.

    I would hate to be a baker right now. They are innocent bystanders in a stupid "culture wars" battle.

    Oh, I dunno. The muslims seem to be able to deny wedding cakes for homosexuals without any problems.

    But here is the difference! When a hom0sexual couple want a "Wedding cake" - are they asking for anything to be written on it?

    Or is "being offensive" only based on words but not actions?

    Do you have a link for a Muslim who has refused to bake a wedding cake for a hom0sexual couple?

    They also run around chopping off people's heads.

    We shouldn't concern ourselves with how Muslims are treating people. They've got bigger issues.

    Christ has called CHRISTIANS, not Muslims, to treat everyone a certain way.

    So we've got a supposed Christian going around lying to people about wanting a wedding cake for a gay wedding just to get a response?

    And he recorded these people without their approval no doubt and then posted it on the internet?

    SMH.

    Zaak..., the question was..., is there a link? Link provided.

    A link from a born again believer wasn't part of the "link" request.

    Don't know if he's Christian or not. What we know is that while the media is creating hit pieces targeting Christians, the very same thing is happening in non-Christian establishments.

    I literally cannot stand to read another article about cakes and bakeries. I'm done. The subject has gotten to the point where it bores me blind. It's inescapable and it bores me blind.

    UOT, it's important because it has to do with the Bill of Rights.

    It will take a while and if we haven't reduced the earth to a smoldering cinder block soon it work itself out in the SCOTUS (or maybe at the state level) - Not to everyone's satisfaction but it will be tolerable.

    Except abortion - it can never be made tolerable unless the mother's life is in jeopardy and then IMO it's up to her alone to decide.

    Be very careful, you or one of your family members may be the next persons they sue! Also, the perverts have also sued Pastors for not marrying them, your fellowship could be next.

    While what the person wanted on the cake, according to him, has not changed, what the baker SAYS he wanted on the cake keeps changing.

    Now she says what she refused to put on the cake was simply the scripture reference from Leviticus concerning gay sex. She says she is a Christian and believes that verse is offensive.

    For those who don't remember, the Christian baker out on the west coast knew the gay couple, told them she could bake, decorate, deliver, and set up the cake but could not in good conscience provide a gay depicting cake topper.

    For that she has lost her business, been ordered to pay huge punitive damages, and been castigated as a bigot.

    I'm not seeing the difference in these two cases. In both, the baker refused to provide the decoration but in both offered a way to provide the cake and let the person buying finish the decorations.

    The one in Denver is all over the news as a hero, the one out west as a homophobe.

    Because Christians won't saw your head off, nor bomb you, nor shoot you.
