    Over a dozen pro-homosexual bakeries refused to fulfill a Christian’s order for a cake bearing the message “Gay Marriage Is Wrong” in an experiment meant to see if such bakeries would accept orders against their beliefs just as they expect of Christians.

    As previously reported, in May of this year, Ashers Baking Company in Newtonabbey, North Ireland—founded by Christians and named after Genesis 49:20—was approached by a same-sex “marriage” supporter to bake a cake bearing the phrase “Support Gay Marriage,” which also was to feature the logo for the homosexual advocacy group QueerSpace.

    When the bakery declined, the customer reported Ashers Baking Company to the Equality Commission of Northern Ireland, which in turn sent a warning to to McArthur, stating that he and his bakery had discriminated against Lee. The bakery was ordered to either pay or face legal action.

    In light of the incident, and other similar situations that have been reported across America, Theodore Shoebat of Shoebat.com decided to call 13 homosexual-owned or pro-homosexual bakeries to ask if they would make a cake for a “traditional marriage celebration” that bore the message “Gay Marriage Is Wrong.” Not one of them agreed to make the cake.

    “We’re a gay cookie shop, so I don’t think that’s going to work,” one replied.

    “I apologize but we don’t support that,” another said, “because half of our staff is gay.”

    “We don’t really support that or agree with that, so I’m going to have to say no,” a third stated.

    “No, we wouldn’t consider doing something like that,” responded another. “That would be like doing a nude cake or something like that. That would be getting into areas that we don’t delve in.”

    While some quickly ended the conversation by stating that they did not feel “comfortable” with fulfilling the request, others became more irate at the idea.

    “One baker even said all sorts of profanities against Christians and ended the conversation by saying that she will make me a cookie with a large (deleted) on it,” Shoebat explained.

    “Even after we completed our experiment, we got a ton of hate messages saying that we were ‘hateful’ for simply giving them a taste of their own medicine,” he stated. “They argued that the slogan ‘Gay Marriage Is Wrong’ is not the same thing as ‘Support Gay Marriage’ as if an opposite view of a view is hateful.”

    Let's see .... the homosexuals play the homophobe card; the blacks play the race card; and the illegal's and entitled collecting welfare play the haters card.

    The only ones not protesting and blocking the traffic in our streets are the white folk, Christians, Jews, and the Asians, Native Americans, and hard working folks scratch their heads and wonder if they should raise Cain too. After all the squeaky wheel does get the grease, or away with throwing temper tantrums and all the things that come with appeasing their feelings. :smilewinkgrin:

    If I were a baker and a homosexual couple wanted to me make their wedding cake, I could not in good conscience do it. I would sell them anything they wanted, but not a wedding cake. I would feel as if I were supporting their homosexual union.

    And if a Christian walked into my shop and asked for me to bake a cake that write on top of it "Gay Marriage is Wrong", I would not make that cake either. Yes, I support the idea that gay marriage is a sin, but I support that idea by my Christian faith and walk and by teaching that Biblical concept to others.

    I can't imagine for the life of me WHY a hypothetical Christian would WANT a cake made with "Gay Marriage is Wrong" on it. Are they having an anti-homosexual party at church?!?! :confused:

    This was NOT the way to prove anything.

    Just my opinion.

    Nice to see the hypocritical ways exposed.

    I believe every business should have the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason. Anti-discrimination laws shouldn't exist, except as it applies to government agencies.

    What foolishness are you saying? To be honest I don't even know what you are complaining about. Do I need to spell out my sentence more clearly? I thought an accomplished author, speaker, and scholar extraordinaire such as yourself wouldn't have any issues with reading comprehension.

    "Nice to see the hypocritical ways exposed." It's nice to see the hypocritical ways of the homosexual community exposed. They insist upon equal treatment from Christian establishments, yet don't provide the same equal treatment themselves. It's hypocritical of them.

    Is that better for you? Or do I need to remove all the "big words" and decrease the reading level?
