This was surprising.
This was the bakery in Northern Ireland whose owners refused to bake a cake with the words 'support gay marriage' on it, as it contravened their Christian beliefs.
The customer sued them for discrimination, and won, but that has now been overturned on appeal:
The bakery always insisted it was the slogan they objected to, not the fact the customer was gay.
Personally, I think that's a tenuous description and I believe they are homophobic.
But, to what extent should a retailer be FORCED to serve a customer? I always thought retail was legally an 'invitation to treat' and service could be refused without giving a reason. Clearly, that's not the case any more.
Or perhaps the issue is they DID give a reason - objecting to the slogan. They should have just declined and said no more about it.
