‘Gay cake’ bak­ers urge Chris­tians to take stand

The Sunday Telegraph - - News -

The cou­ple at the cen­tre of the “gay cake” case have urged other Chris­tians to “take their stand”.

Last week, the UK Supreme Court ruled that Ash­ers Bak­ing Co had not dis­crim­i­nated on grounds of sex­ual ori­en­ta­tion, re­li­gious be­lief or po­lit­i­cal opin­ion in de­clin­ing to dec­o­rate a cake that said “Sup­port Gay Mar­riage”. Judges unan­i­mously agreed it ob­jected to the mes­sage and not the mes­sen­ger.

Daniel and Amy McArthur, Ash­ers’ own­ers, ad­mit­ted the pub­lic na­ture of the case had been tough, but say they have been com­forted by the knowl­edge that they had done noth­ing wrong.

Mrs McArthur said: “I would say to other Chris­tians to not be afraid, to take your stand for God’s word.”
