But neither cake has risen!

The United States’ Supreme Court, and the British Supreme Court, have to muse and deliberate on two almost identical cases, both of which revolve around the idea and ideal of Religious Freedom and Conscience.

The cake case from America revolves around a Colorado baker, who bakes and ices expensively decorated cakes for all occasions. He was approached by two homosexuals accompanied by the mother of one bloke, and asked to make a cake for the same-sex wedding reception. He declined, on the grounds that his religious beliefs would not allow him to have anything to do with same-sex marriage. He said other bakeries would accommodate them. They sued on the grounds of discrimination, and won. The baker appealed, and now the Supreme Court is due to have a look at the whole idea of a baker being forced to go against that which he believes is hedonistic, wrong and against everything he holds sacred. The Justice Department is backing Jack, but we shall see what is sweet, and flavourful, when the top Judges sit and speak.

The British Supremes must deliberate on a similar idea, which came from Ashers, a bakery in Northern Ireland which refused to bake a cake for a homosexual campaigner, on the grounds that they did not subscribe to the ideals represented by the logo requested, which supported same-sex marriage. The Equalities Commission (?????) got involved in the prosecution of this case, which the bakers initially lost; but their case, backed by the inestimable Christian Institute; now resides in the hands, or rather on the minds, of the British Supremes.

The matter which resides in both cases revolves around the lack of any ‘conscience’ obligation within both sets of Law, in both America and in Gt. Britain. When both Bills were being drafted, campaigners pleaded for a reliable conscience defence to be included, but the voices were ignored: and so we come to this. If either or both cases go against the defendants, we will be no doubt be seeing Muslim bakers being forced to bake cakes with Koranic cartoons iced into the cake face, or Anglican printers made to produce leaflets praising ‘Jihadi’ murders; both instances enforced on the grounds of non-discrimination.

The Equality Laws in the United Kingdom were brought in to  Parliament under Labour; they were approved under the bloody Tories, but they have been stewed and glued by a veritable avalanche of ‘discrimination campaigners’ and their efforts over the years. If the reader spends a contemplative half-hour paging through the learned work labelled The Rise of the Equalities Industries, he will learn of the progress of this monstrous regime. When Charles Dickens brought the phrase “The law is an ass” into general usage, he was simply stating what is always true; the Law, unless every byway is covered or locked out, will be bent sideways until the lawyers achieve what they wish to see, and a good idea is usually bastardised in return.

Bake your cake? Sorry, but the price is, or would be; too high!

I hope that the long march of the homosexual lobby will be stopped in its tracks on both sides of the Atlantic: with Gorsuch on the Supremes for America, the defence will probably win through; in Belfast, the liberal Judiciary will probably side with the Sesame Street bunch.

    Mike, do you know if a service provider has to give a reason for declining to carry out work? I mean could the cake makers have just said no or are they obliged to explain why they are saying no?

    They are obliged to state why they cannot fulfil the order; hence the alleged discrimination because a Christian-oriented baker refuses to decorate a cake with a same-sex Sesame St. motif. It was of course a complete and utter set-up; Ashers is well known in NornIreland for their Christian ethos, and this clown decides that he is upset because he cannot get a ‘gay cake’: hence the suit.

    Literally, these guys are just a right pain in the arse, in every sense of the word!

    MY opinion is that the baker should have quoted two prices for the cake; one un-iced at a cost of about ten quid; the decorated cake would cost around five million pounds, rising further if there was any attempt to negotiate.

    Oh come off it. They gays will win because, well, they’re poofs. They want to offend. More, they want to get their own way to prove they’re more important. I said it when Cameron forced gay marriage on us – this will set back gay acceptance decades.

    However, if you ask for a bacon Sandwich from a Muslim, or ask a Muslim till girl to serve you alcohol, you will be refused because ‘dey is ‘slims’.

    The system will be aribtrary. It won’t be fair, reasonable or just. The court will rule against the Christians. We all know this already. The oppressor is always supported by the state.

    The really interesting one will be when a gay goes into a Muslim cake shop and demand a poof cake.

    If I was baker, I’d say “We’d help if we could, but we’ve no suitably qualified staff to create your requirements, sorry”

    btw alcohol licensed premises do not need to give a reason for ejection or entry refusal.

    The gay will never walk out, he will be disappeared.

      He may reappear in the Kebab shop next door.

    Surely it would be only too reasonable for confectioners to confine their output to a specific range of designs? That way they would at least have certainty that they were not in breach of anyone’s copyright.
    Mention of Sesame Street motifs alarms me- you can’t just copy someone’s intellectual property like that.

    There are some nice panettones going at the moment at ASDA if you’re looking for that late pressie.

    Lets not be academic about this, why didn’t they just vomit in the cake mix? then bake a wonderful cake.

      Simple – they’re Christians.

        So was Pope Innocent 111.

          No he wasn’t – anything but. Because someone wears a pointy hat … Theresa May says she’s a conservative.

            If you keep this up you will be excommunicated.
