The owner of Masterpiece Cake Shop in Lakewood refused to bake a wedding cake for a local gay couple and now people are pushing a boycott against the owner.
Shop owner Jack Phillips probably didn’t think he was going to be wading into a civil rights debate a week ago when he told the gay couple that he would not make a cake for their wedding, but that’s exactly what has happened.
Dozens of protesters gathered outside the shop on Saturday and were very angry.
It wasn’t the first time the shop turned down gay couples who wanted a cake. Phillips has received more than 1,000 angry messages about his stance.
“If gays come in and want to order birthday cakes or any cakes for any occasion, graduations, or whatever, I have no prejudice against that whatsoever,” Phillips said. “It’s just the wedding cake, not the people, not their lifestyle.”
“We would close down that bakery before we closed our beliefs, so that may be what it comes to … we’ll see,” Phillips said.
I predict a backlash against gay fascism and this guy's business being unable to handle the onslaught of orders he'll likely be receiving.
America is waking to the fact that this has nothing to do with tolerance.
