Bakers win appeal
THE Christian owners of a bakery at the centre of the “gay cake” case expressed “delight and relief” after winning a Supreme Court appeal over a claim that they had discriminated against a customer.
Five justices at the UK’s highest court allowed a challenge by the McArthur family, who run Ashers bakery in Belfast, in a unanimous ruling in London.
The legal action was originally brought by gay rights activist Gareth Lee, who was refused a cake with the slogan “Support Gay Marriage” on it.
