So once again Masterpiece Cakes in in the news because they're being sued AGAIN by liberals. This time they're refusing to make a "gender transition cake". I mean wth is that, but anyway. THey already won in the Supreme Court against a gay couple who tried to force them to make a gay wedding cake.

Now its already clear these buisinesses are being targeted by radical far left groups who travel the country looking for lawsuits and certain conservative or Christian businesses to target.

So what if I were to go to a bakery I know is owned by a liberal Democrat and ask that they make me a cake for July 4th, and on this cake I want them to have "Trump 2020", #MAGA, and Psalm 33:12 "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord."

Or what if I were to go to an Arab Muslim owned bakery and ask for a cake with the Israeli flag on it and a quote from the Bible saying that God will bless those who bless Israel and will curse those who curse Israel?

Should I have the right to have these cakes made? Do liberals believe this athiest, liberal or Muslim should be allowed to refuse my request?

I actually kinda want to do Example #1 on July 4 this year it would be fun.

Well, I don't own a bakery. But I am a liberal, and my reaction would be "I'm in the business of selling cakes, so sure, I'll sell you what you want". As long as your money's green, why on earth should I care?

It would be no weirder than those kitty litter box cakes that were so popular a few years back, and AFAIK, bakeries were perfectly happy to make those.

IOW, no force required.

Christians shouldn't be using their religion to justify their bigotry.

No. It should be up to the owner. Just like no shirt, no shoes, no service is up to the owner.

Anyone else giggling over the refusal to make a "gender transition cake"? Or a "gay wedding cake"? Cakes are straight, dammit. They are either chocolate or vanilla. Red Velvet cakes are confused. Don't even get me started on lemon or coconut.

Simple answer to the OP is NO, a liberal bakery should be allowed to refuse service.

This latest lawsuit against this bakery is nothing more than abuse of our legal system. A bakery isn't providing life saving services nor is it the only bakery available.

Once again Americans seeing for no valid reason.

Cool, I'll take one of your cakes with an Eisernes Kreuz, Totenkopf, with Schutzstaffel flashes, and a black swastika on a white roundel, and red rectangular field.

When can I pick it up?

Should it? I don’t see why not. What’s wrong with a cake with a Christian theme, or a wicken theme, or a Muslim theme? So long as it doesn’t depict violence or hateful message it should not be a problem. If a cake should have a message that reads let’s bomb Israel, or let’s gas all the gays or let’s decapitate all the Muslims.....then the store has a right to refuse. Hate speech is not free speech.
