Bakery faces backlash for refusing to make wedding cake for Lesbian couple

Lesbian couple

A bakery in California is facing backlash after its owner refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple.
Eileen Del Rio said in a Facebook post that she and her fiancé went to Tastries Bakery in Bakersfield for a tasting and to pick out a design for their cake but were told to go somewhere else once the owner, Cathy Miller, realized that her fiancé was a woman.
“She don’t condone same sex marriages so refused to make our wedding cake,” the post read.

According to KGET, people have now called for a boycott of the bakery.
Miller told the outlet that she’s Christian and because of her religious beliefs she doesn’t celebrate same-sex marriage.

“The ceremony, when you’re getting married is in the eyes of the Lord, okay, and that’s a celebration of a union that God has brought together and that’s a whole lot different than coming in and wanting a cookie,” she said.

Miller said for the past five years whenever a same-sex couple comes in for a wedding cake she refers them to her competitor, Gimmee Some Sugar.

It has never been a problem,” Miller told KEGT TV. “I’m really hurt by all this. I don’t think we should be picked on because of our beliefs.”
