I came across this video on one my news feeds today, and thought it was worth a shout-out. It seems that an engaged same sex couple went to a bakery to order their cake. When the shop owner learned that the happy couple actually was the two women sitting across from her, she politely informed them that she did not want their business. Their “lifestyle, she said, was against her “convictions.”
According to the shop owner, she had every right to turn the couple away. They, in turn, were dismayed and embarrassed.
I’m sure that they were able to find someone else to make their cake—after all, many planners as well as other vendors are now specializing in same sex weddings.
But it begs the question: Was it wrong to turn the couple away? What do you think? Have you ever turned business down because of your personal beliefs? Tell us about it…
