Homophobic Bakery Proven To Be Hypocrites

You may remember a while back about the bakery in Oregon that refused to bake a wedding cake for a same sex couple and the following backlash that followed. The owner of the bakery claimed that their reasoning behind not wanting to accommodate the request by the couple (which is their JOB) was for religious beliefs. So now comes to question would the bakery feel the same way about other things the extremist right say are evil, like say, cloning? Well apparently they had no problem with that, or in fact any other issue other than same sex marriage. Here’s more:

An Oregon bakery that refused to make a cake for a lesbian wedding readily agreed to do business with an undercover reporter who pretended to be hosting avariety of events social conservatives often find offensive, according to an alternative weekly paper in Oregon.

“I was wondering if you could do two little cakes. My friend is a researcher at OHSU and she just got a grant for cloning human stem cells, so I thought I’d get her two identical cakes—basically, two little clone cakes. How much would they cost?” the covert reporter asked an employee at Sweet Cakes By Melissa in Gresham, Ore.

“Ha. All right. When are you looking to do it? It’ll be $25.99 each, so about $50 to start,” a bakery employee told the reporter, according to The Willamette Week.

In addition to agreeing to make a cake for a “pagan solstice party” (the reporter requested a pentagram of icing on the cake), Sweet Cakes also agreed to make custom cakes for a divorce party and a party for a woman who’d had multiple babies out of wedlock, the paper notes.

See, hypocrites that go around condemning one sin without having any regard for any of the other laws of God they seem to not even be phased by. Okay now it could be that the business did in fact have policy against it but with all the negative press they received for their standing up to their beliefs, they didn’t want to cause any more problems but it is not likely. How can they stand for something they so clearly have no grasp on what it means for their faith? Exactly.
