The Christian owners of a Northern Ireland bakery have won their appeal
in the so-called "gay cake" discrimination case.

The UK's highest court ruled that Ashers bakery's refusal to make a cake
with a slogan supporting same-sex marriage was not discriminatory.
The five justices on the Supreme Court were unanimous in their judgement.
The high-profile dispute began in 2014 when the bakery refused to make a
cake with the slogan "Support Gay Marriage".

It’s remarkable that the case was tried in court. Their legal counsel must’ve needed some attention. If they had gotten a court order for putting that slogan on the cake, quite a few other organizations of shady descent would have been entitled to put their slogans on full display.

your country's going 'down' with the rest of those who have thrown Jesus into the ditch -
it's a 'done-deal'...sad but oh so True'...

I don't think the legal issue here was about discrimination in the execution of business, but rather about "compelled speech." It was a free speech issue.

So the problem was never WHO they were selling a cake to. The problem was being forced to SAY something on the cake they didn't want to say. This should be a no brainer, but we're living in a world where compelled speech is starting to be a thing.

Yes, a lot of people don’t comprehend that the matter of free speech also is the right to say nothing at all.

The whole thing is ridiculous - what if an Hindu couple wanted a "Support Arranged Marriage" cake made?

What if a Democratic wanted "Impeach Trump" cake?
