“My bakery, from Day 1, my employees have known that this is God’s bakery.” Cathy Miller – Entrepreneur, Christian, and Owner of Tastries Bakery
There are over 100 businesses in Bakersfield and the immediate surrounding area that are bakeries, so it should come as no surprise that SJWs have targeted this particular location only. Taking a page out of the Memories Pizza playbook, they are harassing, threatening, and deterring business because Cathy Miller stated she would not bake a wedding cake for a gay couple, even though she did refer them elsewhere. A hint that this could have been an issue is found on Tastries’ homepage. You would think this would be a giveaway, unless someone felt like targeting a specific type of business for a good serving of virtue signaling with a side of Cultural Marxism.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” – John 3:16
Being a devout Christian, her reasoning should be obvious. The bigger issue is that no reason should be needed. It’s her business, her enterprise, her bakery. The notion that she has to serve everyone is absurd. Unfortunately the law of common sense rarely agrees with federal and state law.
“No shirt, no shoes, no service.”
Two federal laws govern when a refusal of service is illegal. Title II of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination in places of public accommodation based on race, color, religion, and national origin. The Americans with Disabilities Act prevents discrimination on the basis of physical, mental, or emotional impairments. Under federal law what Cathy Miller did is legal. Under state law, however, it is not. California, along with 20 other states, has decided that federal law isn’t enough and have expanded it to include sexual preference. The fact that a supposed anti-discrimination law is in effect discriminating against someone’s religious beliefs to enforce “anti-discrimination” is ridiculous. If anything, this law is discriminatory against business owners since they are not allowed to make decisions based upon their own free will. Your beliefs only matter if you’re a customer, not a business owner.
Does this mean SJWs are allowed to threaten and harass her employees? The harassment has been so intense one employee has already quit. They’ve driven down her review scores on Yelp and social media as well. Don’t mistake this outrage with a desire for freedom. This is merely a strong arm tactic to force tax paying, God-loving, supporters of free speech and faith to break their will. The map above proves there are no shortage of bakeries. That’s one of the great things about Capitalism and the free market; you have options galore.
One should also note that California also has a law where you cannot deny service based off of unconventional dress. In Gatto vs. Sonoma County a man wearing a Hell’s Angels vest was denied service at a fair and asked to leave when he refused to take it off. So Proud Boys, remember that next time you are denied service for rocking the Fred Perry, California Law is on your side. If we’re considered more intimidating than the Hell’s Angels, I won’t complain.
Here is my recommendation for any SJW who finds themselves denied service. Log onto Yelp and instead of leaving a negative review and posting to Tumblr about it, use the search field and find another business that suits your needs. This is a wedding cake, not a law about weddings. Imagine if you were this outraged when Obama and Hillary were AGAINST gay marriage.
We need to incentivize Conservatism, not Marxism. Here is my shameless plug for this wonderful woman and her family owned and operated business.
“If you’re in the Bakersfield area and want a pastry that takes of God, America, and freedom of speech, go to Tastries. Think Trad is rad? Go to Tastries. You may be living in the modern day equivalent of Sodom and Gomorrah, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a pastry at a bakery that reminds you why the West is the best.”
