A Big Slice of Hypocrisy

Last week Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders read a letter from a little boy who wanted to cut the grass for President Trump. The boy had a little business doing lawn work and because he’s a Trump fan, offered to cut the White House lawn for free.

The president was touched and invited 9-year-old Dylan Harbin of California.to the White House, along with wishing him a Happy Birthday.

Turns out Dylan wanted his birthday cake to honor Trump.

Only problem was his mother couldn’t find a bakery that would do it, according to the Washington Times.

Michael P. Farris is president, CEO and general counsel of the Alliance Defending Freedom, the Christian legal group defending Jack Phillips, a Colorado baker who was sued by a gay couple for declining to make their same-sex wedding cake.

Mr. Farris wondered why bakers are allowed to decline to make birthday cakes supporting Mr. Trump, but not wedding cakes supporting same-sex marriage.

“Similarly here, cake shops declined Dylan’s order for conscience reasons,” Mr. Farris wrote in a blog post on Thursday. “Yet, no one on the Left is calling for legal action against the cake shops. And neither should anyone on the Right.”

“The fact is that these cake shops have freedom of speech,” he continued. “They have the right to decline to use their artistic talents to celebrate events or promote messages that violate their beliefs, even if it offends a nice little kid.”

These bakers should be ashamed of themselves. Politics obviously frosts them. It’s pathetic.
