To bake or not to bake…. or half-baked…

Since it’s coming across my facebook feed again, I am finally going to address the issue of the Bakers that are having their lives destroyed by the ‘tolerant’ left.  Why? for chosing not to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex wedding.

The narrative being passed around facebook goes something like this:  ~Jesus ate with sinners..( of whatever type they choose to name) but you won’t bake them a cake? ~

There are several problems with this… we’ll go over the high points.

First, in most cases that I am aware of, the bakers involved have no problem selling their wares to the people involved. so it’s not about ‘baking a cake’.  Taking a half truth and using it to string along the storyline you want people to believe is a poor substitute for reasoned argument.

When Jesus ‘ate with sinners’ he wasn’t condoning their life choices, He was showing them the way out.  A same-sex wedding isn’t a way out, it is saying you’re going to stay in this lifestyle for the long haul. Something that many Christians have a hard time putting their seal of approval on.  Thusly, they get hammered down.

Is that sinful life choice worse than mine?  hardly. After all, I was a witch.  Something that has been forgiven by our Lord since I turned to Jesus.

To those who say that the bakers in question are being hateful, I must disagree.  To my mind, the most hateful thing that they could do is put their stamp of approval on the wedding, leading the homosexual community to think that it’s okay in God’s view.  Bake for them, sure. Love them as people, absolutely.  Make the centerpiece for that wedding celebration ?  I don’t find that to be very loving at all….
