First let me say that both sides of the "Gay Wedding Cake" issue appear to be idiots to me. I think discriminating against people is stupid and so is trying to "force" someone to do something against their will. With all of the publicity surrounding the Indiana "Religious Freedom Law" it just got me thinking. Would you actually eat something made by someone forced by law to make it for you?

I promise you that if I were forced to do something against my will (like bake you a cake) that you would NOT want to eat it, lol. So hypothetically speaking if this Christian baker had made the cake for the gay wedding under duress and you were a guest at the gay wedding would you eat a piece?

I am curious to see the responses. My answer? Heck no!

Hell, if I was a cop, I wouldn't eat fast food at all. You always hear stories about what happens to cop's food orders at this places.
Those kids aren't even being forced to work there.

So, no, I wouldn't.

If you were forced to make a cake for me, I would happily dispose of the ingredients for you.

Starting with the icing.

Of course not.
This whole issue is based on illogical hypothetical scenarios that are yet to even happen. It just shows how irrational people have become over these modern pseudo-civil rights non-issues. This also shows what to expect if a business did do this. The place would probably be burned down over night by hordes of oh-so-enlightened and tolerant people.

Why on Earth would a Christian with a good moral compass, who takes Jesus Christ as his or her example make a cake that was in any way not fit to eat?

people only care about getting on the "outrage train"
That's it. 90% of the people that had any reaction don't actually care about gay rights, they just found something to direct unplaced anger at.
Sorry if that hurts someone's feelings but it's true. You just want to be angry and create some kind of chaos.
The pizza people have to right to refuse service, especially if the place is privately owned.
They have the right to be jerks and say "no wedding pizza for gay people" (was that even a thing?)
and we have the right to call that stupid, spread the word and avoid going to that pizzeria.
but NOPE! must fight intolerance with intolerance and send death threats, hack the website and all that jazz.

Now would i eat the cake? hell yeah.
just to be spiteful.
i bet it tastes like strawberries and tears.
yummy.

Yea why not? A little bit of spickle never hurt nobody.


I'm sure we've all eaten food in certain restaurants that have done things to our food.

I've heard some true horror stories, and let me tell you, people don't have to be forced or under duress to play with your food.

Why would a Christian, with a good moral compass have a problem making a wedding cake for a gay couple?

I wouldn't give them the business, that's for sure.

Name and shame, but go somewhere else, somewhere that wants to exist in the 21st century.

I think it's safe to assume that a Christian being forced to bake a cake for a gay wedding doesn't have a good moral compass. I wouldn't put petty spite above someone like this.

Hmm, i just naturally expected that anyone who followed Christ would just have got on with their business and left the judging to God.

It would stand to reason after all

Not from what I've seen of Christianity. Christianity is the religion of pure hypocrisy to me. Too many contradictions in the bible that allow Christians to justify any behavior they want, whenever they want. Then when it becomes necessary to judge someone else doing that behavior they have text to do that too. Heck their bible isn't really even clear on who should be doing the judging: man, god, or both.

I don't mean to drag you into explaining things that i already know, i'm just being sarcastic and a touch arch about stereotypically sniffy and judgemental "Christians"

That's a silly question, because if you really think about it, if you've even eaten out you've already eaten food made by someone who was forced to make it for you.

On that note, don't go into that garbage of "They chose the job, they're not forced", or any malarkey like that. The thing is, everyone in any job has bad days. Especially food service. So many times they don't want to be there, but have to be there, because they need the funds.

Not only that, but if you've ever complained about service/food at a restaurant, but still eat there, trust me, you're eating food made by people who don't like you. More often than not, people know who complained. They may even be told when you enter, especially if you're a "regular".

So in all honesty, chances are you've already eaten food made that way. Even if you don't know any of the people at the restaurant, you never know, one of the cooks may see you and just hate your face.
