There's cakewrecks.com. I can't link right now.

The baker could do everything but the actual text. Maybe someone can invent a cake - printer, sort of like the dog tag machine at Petco, Type in your message snd it spits out a cake-o-gram

Not a bad idea....bake the cake, shape it, and do the basic icing, and give the customer everything they need to write whatever they want.  If they mess up, it's not the baker's fault.

I've seen some ugly stuff "created" by professional bakers on those silly-ass timed contests on Food Network before the whole thing became too disgusting.

There are no-talent nobodies in every field.....the TV is across the room behind me, and I can hear the brainless audience cheering a jump that barely got off the ice.

Gack!  I'm outta here.

It seems obvious the guy is a provocateur. and probably a bully. And a complete ass. Is he making a valid point? Now that cakes are a means of publishing, like books, and blogs, anyone who limits free speech on a cake is in trouble. It is not the baker whose speech is up for debate here - it's the customer / author. I have wondered why it's OK to force bakers to write things on cakes, they don't beleive in, on their cakes.

I belong to a gardening website that restricts what people can say - no cursing, no racist speech, etc. I guess the website has rights that a baker doesn't have.

Can you force a baker to bake a cake with a picture if that prophet whose followers blow up people and buildings? Not the same thing?

Or maybe, they cant refuse a cake for a gay wedding, or a KKK rally, but they cant be forced to write a message.

Time to have a "Decorate your own damn cake" bakery?

In a "Man bites dog" type reversal, a Denver baker has refused to bake a homophobic cake. There's speculation that this is a ploy by the bigots however. If a baker's right to deny this request holds sway, it would also support bakers' rights to deny service to anyone they disagree with.

Denver, Colorado can feel like an alternate universe for a lot of reasons, but now we can add a new one to the list. Because in the first such case of which I’m aware, a bakery in Denver has been sued for refusing to bake a homophobic cake. According to the reports, the plaintiff in the suit requested that the baker bake him a cake that said “God hates gays” along with a picture of two men holding hands with an X over them. When the baker—who identifies as Christian herself—refused, the plaintiff filed a complaint with the Colorado Civil Rights Division, accusing her of religious discrimination.


It’s a snappy inversion of the now-classic example of bakers who refuse to provide wedding cakes for gay marriage or commitment ceremonies (or florists who refuse to provide flowers, photographers who refuse to photograph the ceremony, etc.). And that’s probably not an accident; if I were a betting woman, I’d bet heavily that a pro-religious-exemption think tank or law firm, like the Becket Fund, had come up with this plan and recruited a plaintiff to set it in motion.

"There is a large quantity of new attempts for 1016..."

Many Republicans would gladly take us back to the 11th century if they could! Over and over again, the party-line divisions on many issues are striking.

One day they may come up with a shot that will prevent Republickityism, the human form of Mad Cow Disease.  I had hopes that the Dubya Virus would have done it but it appears that one only works on people who have a little common sense.  The Mitt R. vaccine was hopeless and about as bad as Holy Water.  There is a large quantity of new attempts for 1016 but not much hope there as they are all derived from pond scum.  All I can say is that this disease is starting to get scary and if you throw in Global Warming we could see a lot of Panic.

Poor little Ricky didn't like the Pope saying the flock doesn't need to breed like rabbits. He wants us all to keep being fruitful and multiplying.

Huckybee has been under his rock for a little while.  I guess he wants the money and attention  that comes from homophobic demonization.  Where is Sanctorum?

Comment by sk8eycat yesterday

So, let the Huckster shoot himself in the foot (or any other part of his anatomy); nothing would make me happier...unless all of the god-addicts vanished from this planet forever.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan yesterday

Mike the Huckster Huckabee is out there urging resistance at the state level should the supreme court rule in favor of marriage equality, demonstrating Mencken's definition of puritanism as the haunting fear that someone, somewhere may be happy. Apparently he hasn't got the memo that this issue might no longer serve his electoral ambitions.
