Boycott Masterpiece Cakeshop

Change your bigoted policies regarding the treatment of the LGBT community.

Why is this important?

The owners of this shop recently turned away a gay couple shopping for a wedding cake because they "don't serve gay weddings." This is an extremely exciting and special time in a young couples' lives, an experience they'll hopefully never have again. They've spent time dreaming up their perfect day to celebrate their love and commitment to each other, and they admiringly chose this business to add one of the most traditional pieces to their ceremony: the cake. But they were denied service because of their sexuality. As a member of the LGBT community in the area, I am appalled at this abhorrent behavior. We need to send a message to them that in this day and age, bigotry cannot and will not be tolerated. I'm not sure how the cakes taste, but I know how bigotry and hate tastes and it is disgusting.

Reasons for signing

  • I find that the people who claim to be Christians tend to be the ones who express the most hate
  • Do you really think Jesus would have refused anyone just because they were "LGBT"? Even if you think it's a sin, he died on the cross to earn their forgiveness. Some "Christian" you are.
  • The First Amendment states, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..." Phillips was NOT exercising his religious freedom, but rather his bigotry towards someone who is different from himself. If he ascribes to Christianity, "Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God." Romans 15:7. I may not be a Christian but I believe in morality and the equal treatment of all.
