If a toothpick comes out clean the cake is done.

But you have to let it cool completely before frosting it.

As for the actual topic, I wonder what the SCOTUS will do with these cases?

They have yet to decide whether they're going to accept the Elane Photography case from New Mexico.

Since "we're all 'sinners'" how do these precious little jeeesus snots every manage to sell any baked goods to anyone?

Oh, I figured it out! They ignore every other "sin" and just focus on the "sin" of homosexuality, or on the marriage equality that's going to finally destroy any last pretense that this is an xstain theocracy.

It won't be long before this thread is filled with folks whining that the baker's religious rights were violated.

The I can finally start throwing States Rights back in the faces of the clueless wonders!

If you stomp around while baking, your cake may fall.

(Hmm. That one has political parallels.)

People can be nasty in the burbs. I hope next time they'll go into Portland for a better baker. Then they'll be able to have their cake and eat it too.

Today we honer Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. the man who led the fight to make such discrimination a crime.

"The backlash against Aaron and Melissa Klein, owners of the bakery, was severe. Gay rights groups launched protests and pickets outside the family’s store. They threatened wedding vendors who did business with the bakery. And, Klein told me, the family’s children were the targets of death threats."

"Perkins told me that in many cases gay couples are targeting businesses owned by Christians.

“Individuals are being persecuted and prosecuted using the leverage of the government through these homosexual activists,” he said.“Government has become a weapon that homosexual activists are using against Christian business owners.”"

---Seems like it.

The homosexuals won't be happy until every Christian cake baker is behind bars.
Sort of like a Confectionery Kristallnacht.

Not because they are "christian" (lots of us are one form of "christian" or another), but because they attack or discriminate against us.
