The Great Gay Cake Scandal

As tensions rise between the USA and its rivals Russia and China, taking the world to the brink of global conflict, as the economic crisis drags on, reducing more nations to economic basket case status, as extremists rampage through the middle east and Africa and threaten to turn their attention to Europe next, it seems our British champions of love, pece and tolerance can find nothing more important to occupy them than persecutiong a christian bakery that refused to bake a gay cake.

Bakery Sued For Refusing to Produce Pro-Gay Marriage Cake

Sesame Street' Bert and Ernie, not gay, not straight, they're puppets

A bakery in Belfast being sued after its owners declined an order for a cake with the words “support gay marriage” on it.

Staff at Ashers Bakery initially accepted the order but when it was reviewed by the owners they felt the cake would cause them to go against their Christian beliefs, according to the Daily Mail.

In the past, Christians have been successfully prosecuted for refusing to cater for Civil Partnership ceremonies, but this is thought to be the first time a Christian has been sued for refusing to campaign in favour of gay rights. The case is that the cake in question was not for a wedding or civil ceremony, but for a political event organised by gay activists campaigning to have same sdex unions made legal in Northern Ireland.

The dispute began in May when an activist from QueerSpace ordered a cake supporting gay marriage and featuring two characters from Sesame Street from Ashers, a business whose owners are known to be evangelical Christians. The family that own the shop decided they were unwilling to make the cake as have done before when asked to produce cakes they deemed to be obscene. Due to modern icing methods the cakes could in theory have almost any picture put on them.

It should be noted here that the Sesame Streeet characters, Bert and Ernie, are covered by copyright, and the makers of the show, which is aimed at pre school children, have previously stated in reponse to previous efforts from the gay rights lobby to sexualise the characters, stated: "Bert and Ernie are best friends. Bert and Ernie are not gat or straihght, they're puppets, they don't exist below the waist."

Personally I have always found the determination of gay activists to sexualise chilrens' television or fictional characters quite disturbing. In more reasonable times the gay community were very eager to dispel certain myths by explaining that being homosexual did not make one a paedophile. As the gay rights lobby have moved more towrds fascism however, they now are determined at all costs to sexualise childhood. The backlash, when it comes, could push homosexuality back into the closet or worse.

The McArthur family who own Asher's are fortunately not so extreme, they only want their feelings to be treated with equal sensitivity as those of the gay rights whiners. Mr McArthur said: "I would like the outcome of this to be that any Christians running a business could be allowed to follow their Christian beliefs and principles in the day-to-day running of the business and that they are allowed to make decisions based on that."

The legal duty to produce campaign material for a group you strong disagree with is likely to be fought all the way to the Supreme Court.

Christian Who Asked Gay Rights Bakery to Bake Anti-Gay Marriage Cake Faces Legal Action

Bakeries in the USA and Britain that have refused to bake cakes for same sex weddings or supporting gay marriage political campaigns have been prosecuted as have caterers who refuse to work for same sex marriage celebrations. But now a bakery which refused to make a cake with an anti-gay wedding message has found itself at the centre of controversy. Unlike mirror image cases in which Christian bakers have been taken to court for refusing to bake pro-gay marriage cakes, this time, it is the Christian to tried to place the order who may face legal action.

The latest skirmish in an ongoing battle between Christians and gay rights campaigners began when pastor Josh Feuerstein called Cut the Cake in Longwood, Florida to request a sheet cake with the slogan “We do not support gay marriage” written on it.

Sharon Haller, owner of Cut the Cake, who took the call, asked Feuerstein whether the request was a prank (it took place on April 1st), before refusing to bake the cake saying “We wouldn’t do that, sorry”. She then hung up without explaining her reasons.

The call was recorded by Feuerstein who then gave his views on the gay-rights-versus-non-gay-civil-liberties debate currently taking place.

“It obviously violates her principles, so she doesn’t feel like she should be forced to make the cake. And yet there is all of this hoopla because Christian bakeries think that they shouldn’t be forced,” he said. “We’re getting to the place in America now where Christians are not allowed any form of freedom of speech. “Have we gotten to the point in America where the left is so ‘open minded’ that they’re close minded to anybody that doesn’t agree with them, or is America big enough for different points of view? Christian bakeries should never be forced to do something that violates their Christian principles. That’s not American. “I love gay people. This is nothing against gay people. This is about religious freedom.”

Top Judge: Militant Atheists Who Silence Christians Are as Bad as Oppressive Tudor Monarchs

Militant atheists and gay rights campaigners who try to silence Christian views are as bad as Tudor monarchs who executed thousands of religions dissenters, a senior british judge has said. Sir Michael Tugendhat, who has recently retired as a High Court judge, said that human rights law all too often trump the rights of Christians, and they fail to guarantee protection for religious views.

Speaking at Tyburn Convent, near the historic Tyburn execution site where hundreds of Catholics were put to death for their religious beliefs, Sir Michael compared the attacks on Christianity today to the way Queen Elizabeth I and Lord Burghley oppressed Roman Catholics. A leading newspaper quotes him as saying: “Those who are hostile to belief in a superhuman being or to religious practices, I am afraid, sometimes exhibit an attitude to freedom of religion and freedom of speech which is as restrictive of that of Elizabeth I or Burghley.

"They seek to limit those freedoms to the private sphere, but that is a denial of the rights that these freedoms enshrine and that is what the puritans and reformers such as John Lilburn and Thomas Helwys fought against. Their fight was ultimately successful, as we all know, but at enormous personal cost."

He added: "The terrible story of the Tudor-Stuart religious divisions should be a reminder that freedom which is confined entirely to the privacy of a person’s home is a form of oppression. The fact that states recognise human rights and natural rights and even the fact that they may enshrine them in their laws doesn’t mean they always respect them. Secularism comes in different forms. It can be neutral, as it usually is in the United States and sometimes is in France, but it can also stand for hostility to belief in the superhuman."

He also said that lawsuits involving religion were virtually unheard of when he began his career, but have become increasingly frequent over the past decade and a half. Where in the past legal cases were usually about blasphemy of heresy, now they are more often about attemps by militant gays and left wing extremists to suppress Christian's right of free speech. Stangely the opposition of extremists to the right to express opinions they do not approve of or 'hate speech' as the left styles it. Strangely the opposition to hate speech does not extend to the rabid preaching onf Muslim extremists who call for their supporters to "kill all infidels."

Over the past decade, judges have repeatedly ruled that equality laws take precedence over the rights of Christians, even when the judgement has gone way beyond what could reasonably be termed equality. Cases include British Airways check-in clerk Nadia Eweida, who was told she could not wear a cross while at work, although the decision was later reversed by the European Court of Human Rights.

Christian Bakery Guilty of Discrimination for Refusing Pro-Gay Marriage Cake Order

The Gay cake - a clear breach of copyright

Christian bakery Ashers in Belfast has been found guilty of discrimination for declining an order for a cake bearing the slogan “support gay marriage”. The ruling was handed down by District Judge Isobel Brownlie following three days of evidence at Belfast County Court, Northern Ireland, in March.

Gay rights activist Gareth Lee placed the order for the cake, which also featured Sesame Street characters Bert and Ernie with Ashers Baking Company, which employs 80 people across nine branches and delivers across the UK and Ireland. Founder and owner Karen McArthur, a born-again Christian, at first accepted the order, but two days later phoned Mr Lee to inform him that the company would not be able to fulfil the order. He subsequently had the cake made by another company.

During the evidence sessions, Mr Lee told the court that the McArthur’s refusal to make the cake had left him feeling like a lesser person (oh the poor little darling!). "I wasn’t worthy of service because they were Christian. That was the message that struck me. It made me feel not worthy, like I’m a lesser person and to me that is wrong," he said. This publication feels he proved himself a lesser persom, a mean spirited little bigot, by not having the maturity to walk away and go elsewhere. In fact subsequent events show he selected Ashers because he knew they were evangelical Christians who opposed same sex marriage

The case was brought on behalf of Mr Lee by the Ulster Gay Fascist Northern Ireland Equality Commission, which monitors compliance with the region’s anti-discrimination laws.

Mrs McArthur told the court that she had initially taken the order to avoid embarrassment or confrontation, but knew that her company would not be able to complete it. The family, who are all devout Christians, discussed how to proceed amongst themselves before deciding to decline the order. They told the judge they “could not stand before God” and produce a cake which declared support for same sex marriage.

Speaking ahead of the judgement, Ashers’ General Manager Daniel McArthur said: “Our faith is very important to us; it determines how we live, how we bring up our children, how we run our business, how we meet and how we engage with other people in society, so yes we can’t leave it out whenever we go to work in the morning.

“It’s been a difficult and exhausting time for us as a family but God has been faithful to us. And He has given us the strength to deal with this, and we know and trust in Him that going forward He will continue to give us His strength.”

Ashers was supported by The Christian Institute which funded their defence.

The Institute’s Deputy Director Simon Calvert commented: "The McArthurs, like countless other Christian business owners across the country, simply want to live and work in accordance with their Christian beliefs – beliefs which have long had a positive influence on Western culture and history."

The case has prompted calls for a “conscience clause” to be included in equality legislation. Sinn Fein has vowed to veto the clause.

Oregon bakery that refused same-sex couple owes $135,000 in damages

T

his page started by looking as a case of personal liberty versus gay fascism in Belfast, Northern Ireland but looks set to spread in all directions. While the Belfast Gay Cake case was, to the best of our knowledge, the first of its kind in Britain, there have already been a number of high profile cases in which the authorities have deemed that gay bitchiness trumps the civil rights of straight people, mostly in the USA. We look at the personal consequences of upsetting the gay fascists for the owners of a small business in Oregon, USA.

The damages awarded to Laurel and Rachel Bowman-Cryerare for emotional suffering caused by Sweet Cakes by Melissa, which two years ago refused to bake a wedding cake for the lesbian couple. A 2007 Oregon law protects the rights of LGBT people in employment, housing and public accommodations. It provides an exemption for religious organisations, but the agency ruled that exemption does not allow private businesses to discriminate against potential customers. “This case is not about a wedding cake or a marriage. It is about a business’s refusal to serve someone because of their sexual orientation. Under Oregon law, that is illegal,” Oregon labor commissioner Brad Avakian said in the final order. Since then the ruling has been upheld by higher courts but the obscene level of damages awarded, plus the burden of costs forced Sweet Cakes by Melissa out of business. The bakers always maintained their refusal to bake for the couple was prompted by religious beliefs. The case has now been cited in the increasingly acrimonious national debate over religious freedom and discrimination against gays. Bakery owners Aaron and Melissa Klein closed their Gresham store in 2013 and operate the business from home. They can still file an appeal with the Oregon court of appeals but due to the state justice system having been hijacked by political activists are unlikley obtain relief through the courts. One of the Kleins’ attorneys, Anna Harmon, criticised the order, saying it was a case of "an overpowered elected official using his position to root out thought and speech with which he personally disagrees". Avakian’s order is unconstitutional, Harmon said, because "the right to speak freely, to think uniquely, and to live according to our faith is the bedrock of this country". But Jeana Frazzini, co-director of the gay-rights group Basic Rights Oregon, praised the order. "This case struck a chord with many Oregonians because allowing businesses to deny goods and services to people because of who they are and whom they love is hurtful and wrong," she said in a statement. In a nutshell, the ruling means that while a celebration cake baker could refuse my order for a cake in the colours of the Union Flag with the slogan "Britannia Rules", because it is UnAmerican, they would not dare refuse an order for a rainbow flag cake with the slogan "gay sex is best". Where is the fairness in that?

UK Police Target Schoolchildren As Young as FOUR With Tax Payer Funded, Transgender Propaganda

In an exclusive report Breitbart London has revealed that UK police are now so completely politicisized they are not only prioritising so called hate crime above real crimes like burglary, theft, rape, assualt, fraud and trafficking illegal immigrants. And not only that, police officers are going into schools and preaching left wing propaganda about gay and transgender lifestyles to children as young as four (which you might remember is the age the Labour Party supported Paedophile Information Exchange wanted the age for sexual consent lowered to.

from Breitbart London

Police and local government agencies in the United Kingdom are distributing a “pioneering” document for “empowering teachers to encourage and support” transgenderism in schools at the “earliest stages” after a four-year-old child identified as transgender.

The “School Transgender Guidance” document has been distributed to all schools in the Cornwall area, and been named as “best practice” by the UK government’s Department of Education. It says transgenderism can potentially be identified in those as young as two, and discusses powerful, irreversible and controversial treatments for prepubescent children.

The document claims: “The purpose of this guidance is to deeper embed good practice in the field of school [primary and secondary] and colleges,” and states that children as young as two years old can be identified as suffering from Gender Dysphonia.

Book Designed to Teach LGBT Awareness to Young Children Distributed to English Schools

by Arthur Foxake

the daily stirrer
As the illustration suggests now the Gay Rights lobby have won the 'right' of bearded queens in bridal gowns to go mincing up the aisle of a church (and how sick and creepy do the pair centre font look), they are campaigning for polygamy, bestiality (unicorns and bunnies, how sick) and paedophile weddings.

A new book from Obamaland, the global capital of deviants, perverts and sex obsessed sick bastards, aimed at teaching junior schools children about same sex marriage and Gay BLT relationships is to be distributed to schools across England, and translated into Welsh. Prince Henry tells the tale of a young prince who decides to marry his servant, Thomas, despite his parents’ objections that it is against the law as Thomas “is poor”, and therefore “not equal.”

The book is being distributed by Pop’n’Olly, a company which produces YouTube videos promoting social diversity and the breaking of gender stereotypes, including families headed by same sex couples. It also creates educational material for use in classrooms and by parents, such as a short video explaining the origins of the pride movement’s rainbow flag.

Founder Olly Pike said his motive in setting up the YouTube channel was to overcome discrimination and promote acceptance: “I feel the best way to battle discrimination for future generations is to start with children. We should educate them about a wider cross-section of society and teach acceptance with regards to love, kindness and respect.”

Prince Henry is the company’s first foray into children’s books. It tells the story of Henry, a young prince whose best friend is his faithful servant Thomas. Eventually the time comes for Henry to marry, but he turns down all the Princes and Princesses suggested by his parents, opting to marry Thomas instead. When his father says that this is “against the law and our tradition” as “Thomas is poor”, Henry makes an impassioned plea:

“You may not think that we are equal because I am rich and Thomas is poor, but we are. We all are. Every human being, no matter how rich, or poor, or different, or similar. We are all worth the exact same. We are all priceless.”

We make an impassioned plea to Olly, "Look, we don't care that you'd rather stick your dick up another blokes shitter than in the place its supposed, that's your choice. But please shut the fuck up about your sexuality because you are a boring, pathetic sex maniac. Do the world a favour and FUCK THE FUCKING FUCK OFF.

Venice Mayor Bans ‘Farce’ Gay Pride Parades

by Arthur Foxake

The mayor of Venice has decreed no gay pride parades will be held in the city while he is in office.

Luigi Brugnaro told Italian daily La Repubblica “there will be no gay pride in my Venice”, describing the event as “a farce” and “the ultimate in kitsch”.

Veneto, the administrative region in which Venice lies, holds a gay pride in different cities each year, with Venice scheduled to host it in 2016, but Brugnaro told the reporter: “Let them go and do it in Milan or in front of their own homes.”

The Daiuly Stirrer is with him there, was there ever any spectacle more pointless, boring and grotesque that a gay carnival parade. Gays are boring and think its their 'right' to demand that we all be as obssessed with their sexuality as they are. Well it isn't, and we have the right to be indifferent to their pathetic attention seeking.

Brugnaro's declaration has been condemned by gay rights groups (they're so utterly predictable), with Flavio Romani from the Arcigay group saying: “We will be back next year and we invite the mayor to march at the head of the parade with us. That way he will see what a Gay Pride really is.”

Brugnaro, an independent politician who was elected on a centre-right platform earlier this year, had already angered gay rights groups after withdrawing books depicting same-sex relationships from nurseries and primary schools in the city.

The move led Elton John to brand him “boorishly bigoted”, while Fabrizio Marrazzo, a spokesman for Gay Centre, accused him of trying to make Venice “off limits” for gay people. Brugnaro responded by calling Elton John “arrogant”, adding: “A family with two women and a child is unnatural.” Well Elton would know all about being boorishly bigoted, the sad old queen bas been at it himself since round about the time he stopped making decent records which is at least twenty five years ago.

The controversy has blown up as Italy prepares to debate legally recognising same-sex unions. The country is currently the only major European nation to give no recognition at all for gay couples, but various towns and have decided the unilaterally perform same-sex marriages. However, even though EU officials have ordered the Italian government to recognize same sex marriage, opposition parties have vowed to block it in the legislature.
