Bigot baker

An Iowa baker who refused to provide a wedding cake for two lesbians based on her Christian values may face legal action from the couple. Same-sex marriage was legalized in Iowa in 2009 by the state Supreme Court, and a 2007 state civil rights act disallows discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation in matters of employment, education, housing, and public accommodation.

On Tuesday KCCI 8 Des Moines interviewed Trina Vodraska and Janelle Sievers, who said they were shocked when a local wedding cake business owner declined to provide the confection for their ceremony.“It was degrading, you know, it was like she chastised us for wanting to do business with her,” said Vodraska.

“I didn’t do the cake because of my convictions for their lifestyle. It is my right as a business owner. It is my right, and it’s not to discriminate against them,” said bigot baker Victoria Childress (pictured above).

So, it's also her right to refuse to bake cakes for, let's say, black or Jewish people? Good to hear she's being dragged to court. I hope she loses!
