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.
“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.
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.”
