Three employees at a Georgia Wal-Mart refused to make a cake with the message “Blue Lives Matter” written on it. If they owned the bakery, they should have the right to refuse to make such a message-cake. That’s only because the only groups protected by law and hefty fines are people who engage in particular and peculiar sex acts and other politically protected identity groups.
You will recall the case of Sweet Cakes by Melissa. The bakery was fined $135,000 for refusing to make a cake that was for a same-sex wedding. Her case isn’t the only draconian legal action that was taken to force someone to comply with an immoral, irrational, and unconstitutional law:
“Colorado baker Jack Phillips was targeted by homosexual activists over his religious beliefs when he declined to make cakes for a same-sex wedding. The Colorado Civil Rights Commission ruled in the homosexuals’ favor and ordered Phillips to make the cakes and to provide sensitivity training for his Masterpiece Cakeshop employees. Colorado courts have refused to provide relief from the demand Phillips promote a message with which he disagrees. Phillips has filed an appeal with the U.S. Supreme Court.” (Source)
Should a black-owned bakery be forced to make a cake for a KKK-themed wedding or a Jewish-owned bakery be forced to make a cake for a Nazi-themed wedding or be fined if they refuse? Of course, they shouldn’t.
Moleskine, a high-end paper company that sells notebooks and accessories, “refused to print the Texas Right to Life logo on notebook covers, deeming the emblem of Texas’s oldest and largest Pro-Life organization ‘too controversial.’”
Moleskine should have the right to refuse to print a message it considers offensive or “too controversial.” Every business should have that right.
An employee at an Albertson’s grocery refused to make a birthday cake featuring an American flag with the message “Trump 2016” written on the top. The employee told Seventeen-year-old McKenzie Gill that she would make a flag cake, but she was not going to write Trump on it.
Albertson’s issued the following statement:
“We apologize to our customer in Bossier City for the situation regarding the cake that was requested. Our Bakery staff member misunderstood the training provided regarding copyrighted phrases, and incorrectly informed the customer we could not fulfill her request. We would be happy to provide the cake as the customer requested.” (Source)
“Copyright phrases” for a cake that’s going to be eaten? What a lame excuse. I wonder if Albertson’s has ever made a Superman or Batman cake and thought they would be sued by Marvel or DC.
Instead of suing the store, “Gill and her mother have simply taken their business elsewhere.” Homosexuals should go and do likewise and keep the government and the courts out of our business.
Maybe we should turn the tables on the fascists. Let’s start suing people for $135,000 if they refuse to bake a cake or print whatever we want, even if they later apologize.
Let’s clog the courts until these insane judges and weak-kneed politicians stop criminalizing what people believe.
