Bakery will no longer
sell wedding cakes after
adverse discrimination ruling

Washington Examiner [DC], by Blake Seitz

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 6/2/2014 8:08:55 PM

Wedding cakes are no longer on the menu at Lakewood, Colo.-based Masterpiece Cake Shop. Owner Jack Phillips will stop offering wedding cake services in the wake of a ruling that his shop must sell cakes for same-sex wedding ceremonies, despite his religious objections. The ordeal began in 2012 when Dave Mullins and Charlie Craig solicited a cake for their wedding from Phillips´ shop. They were turned down by Phillips, who has been a Christian for 35 years and whose religious convictions do not permit him to endorse same-sex weddings. At the time, Phillips told the men “I´ll make you birthday

Comments:
Ha! (And I´ll bet they make a few wedding cakes from time to time. They just won´t advertise that they do it or display them.

This is infuriating.

Prediction and WAG:

This won´t work. If Phillips does any custom bakery work whatever but doesn´t make wedding cakes then discrimination will be inferred.

So no customized birthday cakes, Valentines, St. Patricks work, nada.

He can expect to be hounded.

No problem. Just bake them a kitty litter cake and charge $ 700. And if they refuse to pay take them to court.

Cannot figure out where #1 is coming from. If you´re not in the wedding cake business, you are not in the wedding cake business.

I don´t remember a law saying that a baker had to bake wedding cakes. Link please?

#5, in case you haven´t noticed, it doesn´t matter what the law says. These commissions and courts will just make up whatever "law" they need to pursue their agenda.

I think the only way to fight this is head on. When we say we will direct you to another provider for homosexual weddings or adoptions but please oh please don´t make us participate we undercut our case. When we say SSM is fine but please oh please respect our narrow insane religious sensibilities we look like we are using religion as a cover for irrational prejudice. Plus, Jesus is not going to fight for a people who make such a lame witness.

What we should say when asked to participate in the desecration of God´s holy ordinance or the murder of children or delivering helpless children into the hands of perverts is "What you are asking me to do is a violation of God´s Law of the highest magnitude. I won´t do it and neither should you!" You should ask your pastor to rally the faithful to a public fight and if he won´t, leave that so-called church and denounce him too.

#5. There is no escape once you are to be destroyed. But that involves guessing how determined government is.

Discrimination that can´t be proved can be inferred. And just because it hasn´t been done yet about wedding cakes proves nothing. I never said it had been done.

All it takes is civil rights commissioners who don´t like what you are not doing.

What an exciting day! Bravo to the Colorado civil rights commission, and Katrina Banks!

Ms. Banks, I understand your daughter runs a website authoring and administration service. I have an adult website which caters to very wild erotica and graphic porno videos. Since she is offering her services in this market, and in light of the laws you are applying to Jack Phillips, please tell your daughter she can expect my phone call shortly providing her with complete details--I can´t wait to have her provide her services to me. I will need her making sure that my porno videos--especially the alternative sexuality ones depicting "Dirty Sanchez" activities--are properly streaming to handheld devices and computers. She´ll also be taking calls from people who want to join the Premier Club and she´ll have to book the strippers and "adult entertainers" for me as well.

I pay top dollar. Oh, by the way, all the work is perfectly legal. I´ll make sure I mention her by name as my valued WebMaster on the front web page as well.

Thank you so much for enforcing the law, so that my business can execute its rights fully in your state, and we can toss aside any personal feelings of morality on the part of people I demand to work for me.

Thanks again. Oh, let her know I always conduct meetings in the nude--again, fully legal, on my private property.

LOS ANGELES — The president of the nation´s second-largest teachers union said Friday that President Barack Obama´s education chief has turned his back on the concerns of educators and parents, but she stopped short of calling for his ouster. Teachers unions have been clashing with the Obama administration over its support for charter schools and its push to use student test scores as part of teacher evaluations, a relationship that further frayed after Education Secretary Arne Duncan spoke in support of a California judge´s ruling last month that struck down tenure and other job protections for the state´s public school

The research was headed by Jennifer Shaeffer and William Hopkins of the Neuroscience Institute of Georgia State University and Jami Russell of the Yerkes National Primate Research Center in Atlanta. The authors recalled that the role played by genes in human IQ has been a matter of debate for ages. "As is the case in humans, genes matter when it comes to cognitive abilities in chimpanzees.

WASHINGTON - New enrollments in Obamacare´s Medicaid expansion and other healthcare programs for the poor have reached 6.7 million people since the launch of President Barack Obama´s healthcare reforms last year, the administration said on Friday. The figures, which include state Medicaid plans that existed before Obamacare and the Children´s Health Insurance Program, show enrollment climbing by 920,000 people during May, the latest month for which data is available. All told, new enrollments are up 11.4 percent since last October´s Obamacare rollout. Eight million Americans have also signed up for private health insurance through new state-based Obamacare insurance marketplaces. But while private

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said an internal probe found multiple failures by individual scientists and a lack of agency-wide safety policies led to the potential exposure of more than 80 lab workers to live anthrax at its Atlanta campus last month. Researchers in a high-security bioterror lab sent samples of what they thought were inactivated bacteria to colleagues in

According to Border Patrol sources, violent MS-13 gang members are using the Nogales processing center in Arizona as a recruitment hub and as a transfer point for gang members to get into the United States. The Red Cross has set up phone banks inside the processing center so unaccompanied minors can make phone calls to family members inside the United States and back home in Central America. According to sources, those phones are also being used by MS-13 members to communicate with gang members already in the United States and operating in cities like Atlanta, New York and Chicago.

By obfuscating terminology liberals sometimes can be heard to claim that President Obama has deported more illegal aliens than any previous president. NOT TRUE. There are two types of border enforcement actions: “Returns” and “Removals”. “Returns” are those stopped at the border and sent immediately back; the ones caught. “Removals” are those who get through the border and are caught later on. No previous administration has counted “returns” as deported, until Obama. What Obama is doing is counting those who are stopped at the border, the “returns”, as deported.
