    Actually it wasn't gay themed as such it was the fact they were asked to put on a pro-gay lobby banner on the cake.

    Of course the pro-gay group wouldn't have gone out of their way to target a well known religious bakery to do their cake.

    I think this sort of stuff does that gay community no favours with being accepted as normal in society as a whole, and it has negative impacts for the real areas of discrimination. It's a bit like shooting oneself in the foot.

    But, the bakery should have just royally fucked it up, rather than refuse to do it.

    Bet they'll shed a few tiers at the verdict.

    If you don't want to make a cake for them just say you don't want to make a cake for them, give no reasons.

    The law is the law. Businesses must not discriminate. Religious institutions are allowed to.

    Should we change the law to allow some discrimination? If so which discrimination should we allow? I personally would like to refuse to do business with Gingers.

    Really? Clearly he has never met one.

    I'm not a ginger but am exercising my right to be offended on their behalf. My no win no fee solicitor will be contacting you shortly.

    I thought pretty much all bakeries made fairy cakes?

    I reckon it's just a simple case of homophobic/religious/gluten intolerance.
