Sweet Cakes Takes a Stand for Marriage

Sweet_CakesThis is what principle looks like. This is what standing for what’s right looks like.

We see so few people who will stand for principle and what’s right anymore that it is important that we all know about it when some do.  We should let it encourage and strengthen us to do the same, to not follow the herd and take the easy way.

When homosexual activists and their “useful idiots” tried to intimidate Sweet Cakes, a bakery in Oregon, into making a faux wedding cake for a counterfeit marriage of two homosexuals, the community stepped up and made an extra effort to give that business their business. So many people came in one day that the store was completely sold out of their goods.

Just as the legal currency of a nation has only one definition, so other important things have only one definition. To form a marriage, you need a man and a woman who are of consenting age and are not closely related to one another. If you don’t have a man or a woman to bring to the mix, you can’t have a marriage. You can’t make a bathroom with all male or all female parts, you can’t build an engine with all nuts or all bolts, and you can’t make a marriage without a man and a woman.

The folks at Sweet Cakes aren’t trying to be mean. They’re just standing for what’s right and refusing to participate in a fraud, the counterfeiting of our society’s most important institution: marriage.

    Same-sex “marriage” isn’t even a legal reality in Oregon, by constitutional amendment, so it seems to me that Sweet Cakes owners are affirming Oregon law.

    In many places, one may refuse service to “anyone” for “any” reason. I guess there is now an exemption to that rule. Can’t refuse certain people and can’t be opposited to certain behaviors.

      It’s easily proven that this baker isn’t refusing to serve these PEOPLE, only refusing to sell a product. There would be no problem if these lesbians came in for a birthday or graduation cake; he’d serve them readily.

        True. The owners should have a right to refuse to sell a product.

  • If forced by the unlawful authorities I can think of a number of ways to make a cake that would assure that the LGBT bunch doesn’t darken their doors again, but it is righteous that they have taken a stand on the Christian beliefs.
