Christians face litigation over 'gay marriage' cake

Printer-friendly version

The Equality Commission for Northern Ireland has told a Christian bakery that it will face legal action unless it apologises for not producing a cake backing same-sex 'marriage'.

Ashers Baking was asked to make a cake decorated with the slogan 'support gay marriage' but declined on the basis that to do so would compromise their Christian beliefs. At the time, they offered a refund which was collected by the customer.

But now the bakery has been threatened with legal action by the equality watchdog if it doesn't offer compensation within seven days.

The bakery is being supported by the Christian Institute.
