Another Baker Refuses to Sell Wedding Cake to Gay Couple

In Hood River, Oregon


Even the most romantic dreamer couldn't imagine a more fairy tale setting to get married.

A wedding beneath towering Mount Hood, overlooking the swift blue water of the Columbia River in the Gorge, truly felt like a fairy tale for Erin Hanson and Katie Pugh.

But when the couple went to find a baker for their wedding cake, they were turned away because they are lesbians.

It's a familiar story. In February, Sweet Cakes, a bakery in Gresham, turned away a gay couple. That became national news.

  2. Businesses should be able to turn away customers. If you don’t want their business and you’re willing to risk losing more business, I don’t see the problem.

    1. I’ve never been too keen on giving my money to people who don’t want it. I’ve actually said things like “Later, tater; I’m off to see your competitors.”

  3. The law apparently says that they can be forced to do business with someone. Then what happened to freedom of association? Has that been abandoned along with the freedoms guaranteed by the rest of the Constitution?
