A lesbian couple walks into a bakery to place a large order. The order is as follows:
1. A custom birthday cake for one of them
2. Different custom baked goods for the birthday party
3. A special order for their child
4. Discusses placing an order for their wedding.
The baker agrees to everything, but the wedding cake. Has the couple been discriminated against or not and what is your logic?
Most Helpful Girl
No. People don't have to do things that violate their own personal beliefs. In a way, making a cake for them would mean the baker condones the wedding when they don't. It's not discrimination. Go to a different bakery. They aren't refusing complete service, just a homosexual wedding one. The couple still got everything else, just not that one thing.5
Most Helpful Guy
It's obvious that he discriminated them.
Just exchange the lesbian couple with an interracial couple. Say, a white woman and her black boyfriend come into the bakery. Or a white guy and his Japanese girlfriend. They want to order a wedding cake but the baker says "I think white women who marry black men are sinners and spoil our beautiful white race. Hence, I will absolutely refuse to buy a wedding cake here."
I think we can all agree that such a baker would be an asshole. Somehow, when it comes to gay people, the same type of discrimination suddenly seems totally acceptable for some people.0
