The cake controversies are continuing but this time in reverse as a Christian pastor who asked a “gay” bakery to bake a cake with a Christian message on it was refused service. But instead of the bakery being charged, it seems that it is the pastor who faces threatened criminal action.
Last week we discussed the case of Arizona-based pastor Joshua Feuerstein who runs a popular Youtube channel. Feuerstein warned that Christians are coming under increasing attack by the state and that they should be very careful in this heightened anti-Christian climate.
Feuerstein also made a video where he called Sharon Haller, owner of Cut the Cake in Longwood, Fla. and asked her to make a cake that said “We Don’T Support Gay Marriage” on it.
She refused and Feuerstein posted the video of her refusal on his Youtube channel. Haller then demanded that Feuerstein take the video down and he did as asked. But then she reposted the video herself and used it to attack Feuerstein.
Then the shop owner called the FBI to demand that they charge Feuerstein with a hate crime.
Haller complained of “nasty” phone calls and “negative gestures.” She said she lost money and was investigating her legal options, noting that the recorded phone call is illegal in Florida. According to Lifesite, Haller said she had reached out to the FBI regarding a possible criminal case.
“I’m just afraid because of the type of calls that we were getting that someone is going to attack me in my home,” Haller told News 13. Online, the bakery asked for help, “Please help put a stop to people like Joshua Feuerstein.”
So, let’s review: gays can get Christians arrested and their businesses shut down for not baking them a cake. But Christians can be denied service at any time by any bakery with no consequences.
It seems more clear every day that the only group not protected under our law as it is currently practiced is Christians.
