The UK Supreme Court has unanimously decided that the refusal to bake a cake with the message “Support Gay Marriage” on it cannot be qualified as “discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation”.
The judges emphasized the importance of the right to freedom from forced speech, pointing out that “the rights to freedom of thought, conscience and religion, and to freedom of expression … include the right not to be obliged to manifest beliefs one does not hold…”.
This is a spectacular defeat for the sodomy lobby, which has consistently tried to use so-called “anti-discrimination” laws to seek out and harass opponents of their perverse ideology. In the case at hand, the plaintiff, a well-known pro-sodomy activist, made a point of having a cake with his pro-sodomy message baked by a bakery whose owners are known to be devout Christians. But the bakers refused his order not because of who he was, but because of what he ordered.
It is hoped that today’s ruling will set an end to the uncivil and harassing misuse of anti-discrimination laws by LGBT activists.
It is noteworthy, however, that the plaintiffs had all their legal expenses covered by a state-run quango, the UK’s Equality Commission for Northern Ireland, which spent more than £ 250.000 of taxpayers’ money on the case. The defendants, by contrast, had to spend their own money and rely on the support of a donation-funded Christian charity group. It is time now to examine and set an end to this gross misuse of public funds, which is also a clear violation of the Right to a Fair Trial as set out in Article 6 of the European Convention of Human Rights. If Sodo-Activism had to foot its own legal bills, it would probably not be taking place.
