Just about everyone has heard about the discrimination cases against Masterpiece Cakeshop in Colorado and Sweet Cakes by Melissa in Oregon. Both cases have been viral on the internet and are two of the primary cases that state legislators and conservative Christian activists site in the need for state Religious Freedom Restoration acts, such as the one recently signed into law by the governor of Indiana.
Right Wing Watch picked up a broadcast last Monday when radio host Chuck Wilder interviewed Phyllis Schlafly, founder of the Eagle Forum, on his Talkback digital radio show. During the interview Wilder set up the conversation by stating, “Have you noticed that only Christian small-businesspeople have been harassed and sued for refusing to participate in same-sex marriages even though our fast-growing immigrant populations, you know of Muslims, Hindus and other faiths are also opposed to that concept? The use of same-sex marriage to attack Christian businesses but not businesses run by members of other religions demonstrates what is really driving the demand for the new constitutional right to same-sex marriage.”
Schlafly responded, ““Well, that is right, they want to wipe out the Christian religion. And most of these other religions do not recognize same-sex marriage. I assume there are some Muslim bakers and photographers and other people who have been harassed, but they’re not being attacked and they’re not being criticized.”
So the GLBT agenda with same gendered marriage all along has been to destroy Christianity one bakery at a time! All two of them so far, out of the 6000 retail bakeries in the US.
Over at Huffpost, blogger James Peron has done the maths regarding the possibility of a GLBT couple being refused a wedding cake from a Muslim owned bakery. “In other words, the likelihood an anti-gay bakery would be owned by a Muslim is itself remotely low. That they are also anti-gay is even lower. Many anti-equality business-owners are still happy to make a profit, so the final number of Muslim, anti-gay, anti-profit bakers, has to be rather miniscule.”
As opposed to a refusal from a Christian owned bakery, “Given that 70 percent of the population consider themselves Christian, if you were to pick two bakers at random, chances are pretty good both would be Christians.”
