Christian Discrimination - #2216 - Bakery Brings in the Dough After Gay Threat - Family Research Council

I've heard a lot of discrimination cases, but this one takes the cake! Last week in Indianapolis, a couple came under fire for turning away a special bakery order for "National Coming Out Day" at Indiana University (IU). The Just Cookies owners, David and Lily Stockton, politely explained to the caller that they didn't feel comfortable making rainbow-colored treats for a group that endorses homosexuality. As a father, David said he wanted to set the right example for his two daughters and stand by his moral beliefs. Of course, as his wife explained, anyone is welcome to come to the store and buy cookies from their shelves. "I don't ask people about their sexual orientation," she told the Indianapolis Star after the caller, Heather Brown, started a campaign to get Just Cookies evicted from the City Market.  Brown, who, perhaps not so ironically, works as the "social justice coordinator" at IU, complained that it was "intolerant" to turn down her request. With the help of some ultra-liberal groups, she triggered an investigation by Mayor Greg Ballard's Office of Equal Opportunity. Now it's up to the Mayor to quit wilting under pressure and call off the investigation. Contact Mayor Greg Ballard's office (317-327-3601) and ask him to stop bullying businesses with conviction. If he can't stand the heat, tell him to get out of the Stocktons' kitchen!  Read more.......  You won't believe this story, hopefully with the right help it will be resolved.  I can't even imagine where we will be with stories like this, if we don't at least get a majority in the House of Representatives.
