    They discriminated on the design of the cake, not of the customer. If a straight couple had asked for that design it still would of been refused.

    ..cake featuring the Sesame Street puppets, Bert and Ernie

    Til I read it I thought they’d asked for an image of a sex act or something!

    think they took the cake there on purpose to get a reaction lol

    Yes, obviously. Good on them.

    on a side note this PC crap goes too far.

    Yeah what’s wrong with a bit of good old discrimination eh?

    Not a comment on the fudge cake gag…

    More on the people who choose to discriminate.

    What a bunch of idiots – they should have just refused on copyright grounds and that would have been the end of it!

    The order was placed as they knew they’d get a reaction, the company (which I have no connection to but live locally so I’m well aware of their stance) have refused other work in the past that they didn’t feel they could put their name to.

    If I went to a baker and asked to make a jesus/allah/giant flying spaghetti monster cake and they baker wasn’t comfortable with it as he was of another faith I’d be pretty sure that in a world of freedom and liberty that it was their right not to have to do something they were at odds with.

    Pretty ridiculous situation really that it’s got this far, I’d have refused to do it on the grounds that Bert and Ernie are kids tv characters not gay icons

    Would have been a good plan – but I suspect that like many cakemakers they do a fine range of Disney Princess cakes which I doubt they’ve paid the royalties for.

    Besides the 24 year old general bigot manager said he wanted to take a stand.

    (Not a cake stand presumably)

    Won’t bert and ernie be copyright/tyrademarked whatever so could have been refused due to that.

    I know Asda won’t let you have cake toppers of copyrighted stuff.

    The order was placed as they knew they’d get a reaction

    I did wonder

    Besides the 24 year old general bigot manager said he wanted to take a stand.

    well that makes him an idiot then. Copyright or some wishy washy excuse fair enough, they’d get away with it, but “making a stand” is escalation and when you’re on dodgy ground that’s pretty daft.

    Can’t believe it’s made the BBC news, to be honest.
    Wouldn’t you just go to a different cake shop?

    any Christians running a business could be allowed to follow their Christian beliefs
    = just go somewhere else

    Clearly they’ve only done it for a reaction. The thing that pisses me off is that if this was something that went against/offended any other faith and they refused then it would be considered fine, as we are a diverse and tolerent society that respects other peoples beliefs. Same doesn’t appear to apply to christianity however…

    Some people just want to buy their cake and eat it.

    Perhaps they could put a sign up explaining what kind of people they don’t serve. As a whole bunch of Christians have no problem with gay people. It would make life simpler for people.

    Have to be honest, I don’t know the religious beliefs of any of the bakeries I shop at. Is this something I should be paying attention to?

    Absolutely – it’s good that the customer is taking this further.

    Being gay is not a faith? Skin colour would be a closer analogy – and what then?

    They’ll serve anyone, maybe a sign saying they won’t make cakes with supporting things they don’t agree with?

    I think tpbiker is suggesting if the same couple went into a muslim bakers and they were refused, it would be ok – which I think is bollocks am dubious about

    excuse me while I go and get the Halal butcher up the road prosecuted for refusing to sell me any bacon!

    is he selling bacon to other people? Can I sue Boots for not selling xtr rear mechs to me?

    You’d like to have a butcher prosecuted for something they don’t sell? Why not ask them for a kilo of potatoes while you’re at it?

    Are nazis a persecuted minority group that thanks to years of discrimination require the protection of the law?

    I must have missed the 11th commandment, thou shalt not bake homocakes. You can not approve of in gay marriage all you want but they’re not being asked to approve gay marriage, they’re being asked to bake a cake.
