Wedding Cake Prosecutions…

For anyone who thought my last post might have been in the realms of fantasy – think again!

I did a little fishing around on the internet and found this sort of “Your Christian beliefs are not tolerated here…” issue has already raised its ugly head in the USA:

  1. We call that “tolerance for me but not for thee.” Seems to be the new normal now. I dunno…things are getting really weird. *Sigh*

  2. Once upon a time, in a land far, far away. People could have their business and were not required to sell their goods to everyone, or change their believes to accommodate their clientel. A thought for those who so want a wedding cake (or anything else) but soemone will not sell it to you for what ever reason- find a different vendor. My most wonderful friend Clare- stay strong. Remember all those who have gone before us and waiver not. Of course, that is easier for me to say since I’m a nurse and thus far can refuse to go against my conscious, thanks to the ANA and their ethics for nurses.

  3. Hi Clare, glad you were able to do some research! The LGBT community in the US is now pressing a new issue. If a person says NOTHING, it is now to be interpreted as being against the LGBT lifestyle, (considered as slander against them), therefore, prosecution can begin. So you are darned if you do say something and darned if you don’t. This is what it is coming to.
