If someone asked you to participate in a same-sex wedding, would you? Different people feel different ways. But what's at question here is: Should you have to?
The Delorme family owns a bakery in Texas. They have long committed to using their work to serve and honor the Lord, turning down requests to make alcohol/tobacco-related cakes or anything risque. But earlier this month, a gay couple asked them to make their wedding cake and they declined.
The gay couple then took the matter to the press, and since then, the Delormes have been getting hate mail. “See you in Hell, lady. Racist criminals," reports Fox News of one of the messages. The Delormes are seeking legal counsel preemptively, as they know how others in their same situation have been targeted by the LGBT community.
“We feel like if we are going to be putting our name on something, we want it to encourage Godly values,” said Edie Delorme.
Franklin Graham, a passionate supporter of religious liberties, took to his Facebook to counter back and defend the Delormes.
