Support from an unexpected direction for Ashers, the Northern Ireland bakery recently successfully prosecuted for refusing to make and decorate a cake bearing the text, “Support Same Sex Marriage” for a political event promoting the campaign to legalise gay and lesbian marriages in northern Ireland, where it is still not legal.
The Shakespearean actor who also starred in X men and Star Trek, Patrick Stewart, well known for his left wing political views, has backed the Northern Ireland bakery that declined an order for a cake promoting gay marriage, saying people should not be forced to write messages they disagree with.
Last month Ashers Bakery was fined £500 after it refused to decorate a celebration cake with images of Sesame Street characters Bert and Ernie.the words “support gay marriage for a gay rights activist. We should note that the gay rights lobby have been trying for years to sexualise the characters who are part of a TV show aimed at pre school age children.
The McArthur family who own the bakery are appealing against the verdict.
Although many said the ruling was a victory for “equal rights, Patrick Stewart told BBC Newsnight: “I found myself on the side of the bakers.
He told BBC Newsnight: “It was not because it was a gay couple that they objected, it was not because they were celebrating some sort of marriage or an agreement between them, (they weren’t, the cake was for a political gathering).
“It was the actual words on the cake they objected to. Because they found the words offensive.
“I would support their rights to say no, this is personally offensive to my beliefs, I will not do it, he said.
It’s reassuring to see that some people on the left of the political spectrum still understand the importance of free speech and the right to one’s opinion in a democracy. Far too many leftie sheeple would happily trade individual liberty and several of the most basic human rights for a few Facebook likes from the kind of sad acts who are happy to ride the facist bandwagon so long as nobody points out that it is fascist.
We should all support Ashers right to refuse their support to a cause they disagree with. We notice the gay activists behind this prosecution did not approach a Muslim bakery with their order.
Kudos too to the makers of Sesame Street, who after years of lobbying from the Gay BLT social justics warriors issues a stastement that said Bert and Ernie are best friends, they’re not gay, they’re not straight, they’re puppets. Bert and Ernie do not exist below the waist.
In fact I have found the efforts of gay activists to sexualise characters in children’s television and literature rather disturbing for some time. For years supporters off gay rights tried to dispel the belief that all gay men fancied little boys. Most of us were happy to support them. So WTF is all this crap about sexualising childhood supposed to be telling us.
The Great Gay Cake Scandal
As tensions rise between the USA and its rivals Russia and China, taking the world to the brink of global conflict, as the economic crisis drags on, reducing more nations to economic basket case status, as extremists rampage through the middle east and Africa and threaten to turn their attention to Europe next, it seems our British champions of love, pece and tolerance can find nothing more important to occupy them than persecutiong a christian bakery that refused to bake a gay cake.
