Uncommon Sense

politics and society are, unfortunately, much the same thing

But it’s okay for bakers to discriminate against religion

In the latest eruption between “gay” activists and Christians over religious liberty, a Florida bakery is calling a biblically based message a former pastor and a social media personality asked to have written on a cake an expression of “hate.”

Sharon Haller, owner of Cut the Cake in Longwood, Fla., told ClickOrlando that Joshua Feuerstein called her shop and asked for a sheet cake that said, “We do not support gay marriage.”

And she posted a video online documenting the request.

The video first had been posted online by Feuerstein, but he took it down when the bakery asked him to. Then the bakery posted it online.

The fight concerns the legitimacy of claims by LGBT activists that Christian bakers, photographers and others who choose not to participate in same-sex weddings are discriminating against them. Yet several times bakers who approve of homosexuality have flatly refused to do business when a biblical message is involved.

It was just a week ago that state officials in Colorado formalized the double standard.

Sign the petition in support of ordinances that allow Christian business owners to live by their faith.

There, the Colorado Civil Rights Commission ruled that three bakeries in Colorado asked by Bill Jack to sell him a cake with the words, “God hates sin – Psalm 45:7″ and “Homosexuality is a detestable sin – Leviticus 18:22,” did not have to do so, and that their refusal was not discriminatory.

Yet, at the same time, the same state commission ruled that for a Christian baker to decline to participate in a same-sex wedding event was discriminatory.

Multiple media accounts have identified Colorado’s actions as a “double standard.”
