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 phallus 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.”
Shoebat said that his experiment proved that even pro-homosexual bakeries won’t violate their beliefs since they refused to serve the Christian, and Christian bakeries shouldn’t be forced to violate their beliefs either.
“A Christian making a homosexual cake with ‘Support Gay Marriage” goes against his faith and a homosexual putting ‘Gay Marriage Is Wrong’ goes against his faith as well,” he stated. “Now of course we honor their right to say no—this is not the issue—but what about honoring the Christian right to also say no?”
Footage from all thirteen calls, which was too vile to be published by Christian News Network, was recorded and uploaded to YouTube.
