A California baker is coming under fire
on social media for refusing to serve a gay couple.
According to 23
ABC, the couple shared their experience on Facebook.
“Tastries Bakery … so we just went
with some friends to do a cake tasting for a wedding cake and we were
referred to another bakery,” they wrote. “Apparently they don't
'believe' in same sex marriage, so they refused to make the cake.
I'm not even sure how to react or feel right now. So just be aware
if you choose to spend your money there.”
Cathy Miller, owner of Tastries Bakery
in Bakersfield, told 23 ABC that making a wedding cake for a gay
couple would violate her conscience.

“Our business is God's business. We
work for him.”
Miller added that she shouldn't be
