Skip to comments.No, Forcing Jews To Bake Swastika Cakes Is Not Like Forcing Homophobes To Bake Gay Cakes

New Years resolutions: get outdoors more often, read more books, and stop hanging out with people who only bring up the Holocaust as a way to illustrate unrelated arguments and never to talk about the systematic murder of six million Jews.
This week the editorial board of the Chicago Tribune published an editorial, Wedding Cakes And Conscience, contending that a baker in Colorado being forced to design a wedding cake for a gay couple would constitute a violation of his freedom of expression. To illustrate the point, the Tribune encouraged readers to understand Colorado baker Jack Phillips predicament, saying, imagine a Jewish baker being required to put a swastika on a cake.

The newspaper rounded off the article about why the gay couple should stop forcing a baker to swallow his objections by pointing out that the cake situation is not the same as Black Americans being turned away from businesses during the Jim Crow area, since the issue there was just that a lot of the time Black people needed to use the bathroom, which is a basic bodily function. You know, that thing that happens after you eat a cake with a swastika on it.
Freedom of expression really is an amazing thing. In only one article, a newspaper managed to take anti-Semitism out of context to make a point about how gay people should be grateful and stop complaining, while saying that the Black civil rights movement was mostly propelled by the need to use the bathroom.
Is there a journalism award for insulting three minority groups at once? If so, nominate the Tribune.
The Jewish Daily Backward is at it again, putting the homosexual agenda above morality.
So, we have another sick one on our hands!
Swastika-phobe doesn’t like homophobes?
(yes it is “over the top,” but still true)
Yes, it is. Exactly.
Can I force Colin Kaepernick to bake an American flag cake?
Cakes can’t be gay.
“Yes, it is. Exactly.”
Yup. The militant homosexual movement wants to eliminate Christians (and observant Orthodox Jews); that’s why they specifically target Christian establishments for attack, as in this case.
This was a terrible piece of writing and even worse analysis.
If I am not mistaken, Judaism does not allow gay marriage either.
Some Jewish groups, like some Christian groups, have decided it’s okay or even fabulous.
You know what he’ll do to it.
Yes it is.
Its also the same as forcing a black cake baker to bake a pro-KKK cake.
Why are leftists so stupid?
phobia = an extreme or irrational fear of something.
Jack served these two guys in the past, so there is clearly no “fear”, irrational or otherwise.
Furthermore, Jack offered to sell them anything else in the shop.
Jack was being asked to use his talent to participate in an event at odds with his religious convictions.
Jack is going to win this case.
Actually, a close analogy is forcing a kosher deli to sell ham sandwiches with a milkshake.
True, but they had to change/ignore actual Jewish teaching.
That’s redundant to call leftists “stupid”, i.e. with respect to knowledge of morality. Their goals are abolition of family, private property, religion and national borders, so they’ll say anything to try to trip people up.
They’ll never try to force halal retailers to sell ham sandwiches though.
Yes, it is.
I’m a Jew. Does it give me a say in the matter, Forward Jenny?
How many people, Jewish or not, would bake a swastika cake anyway? Those people were the enemy of our country, etc., so I think most people would not want anything to do with that.
