So, as I understand it, this openly gay "pastor" orders a cake from Whole foods, to have "Love Wins" placed on it. He then accuses Whole Foods (and specifically one of their bakers) of placing a gay slur on it as well. The story goes viral, lots of folks up in arms, calling for boycotts of Whole Foods. Only to later recant his story and say it was a HOAX perpetrated by him. The cake did NOT have a racial slur on it when he received it from Whole Foods. Seems he put the gay slur there (or had someone put it there for him). All to make it appear that Whole Foods was anti-gay rights? Or for $$$ to be won in a court case?
Full Story


  1. This man is no "pastor"
  2. This man has no morals
  3. This man is not a "man" in the sense he must resot to lies and defamation for some ulterior motive
  4. This man has damaged the LBGT movement in many people's eyes
  5. Needs to step down as pastor, a position that demands integrity and true leadership


Apologies alone just will not cut it in this case IMO. This man needs to be punished within the confines of the law. The person he accused needs to sue him for slander, and go on record for their innocence. The LBGT movement has enough challenges in their way, they do not need more placed there by jokers such as this person.

Yet another fake "hate crime" so people can yell "homophobe!" and accuse others of "racism."

His punishment should be to put his head and hands in a rack and have whole foods staff throw cream cakes at him..

Whole foods should sue for slander, I personally couldn't let such a petty attempt at making a few buck go. It's the principle of it. I'd run that guy through the ringer if I had any say at the boardroom table.

I remember this one. The pastor was called on the fake because it turned out the baker who decorated the cake was gay. He would not have done that. And the words showed a different color icing over the original words.

We had an owner of a gay bar in my community burn his bar down and blame it on homophobia. Turns out after the insurance / arson investigation, he did it himself. To make the story even more far fetched much like in this Whole Foods case, this is in probably one of the most liberal progressive communities in Chicago, if not the country.

Whole Foods is obviously a very progressive company as are many of their employees which instantly raised doubt about this pastor's allegations. Fortunately, Whole Foods has cameras everywhere which quickly proved the guy was full of it.

We need to start prosecuting these people to the fullest extent of the law. All these fake cases do is make it that much harder for people with legitimate grievances to be believed.

Intelligence?? How about being unable to rent a house in Flint because every one is rented so people can get into a lawsuit.

And you know obviously I don't want to force atheist conversion on anyone, I said that last comment in a facetious manor, but I do think without a doubt this persons religious ideology is at work here, and it should be addressed, there are no sacred cows including science or faith. It's unfortunate this man committed this kind of fraud.
