Sweet Cakes Turns Me Sour - Local Gresham bakery hides discrimination with religious beliefs
Sweat Cakes Bakery
As it so happens I walk by this bakery on a fairly frequent basis. On warmer days their back door is often open and glancing in the back room there's typically a couple of guys bustling around a table in a very, very pink painted kitchen. On one occasion one of the guys (the owner as it turns out) nodded pleasantly enough, and I thought "He's kinda cute, I wonder... the place is so pink and with a name like Sweet Cakes???" So when I read the headline about Sweet Cakes Bakery in Gresham denying service to a same-sex couples request for a wedding cake, I was a little bemused. I guess you shouldn't judge by appearance, but I'd have thought the bakery was at least a gay friendly establishment. Then I read the story in its entirety and my chagrin turned to frustration and even anger. My first impulse was to rush to the computer and post a rather heated and perhaps a little nasty comment. "They should be closed down! How dare they discriminate against my people!!!"
I am an upbeat energetic individual and believe most people would describe me as being easy-going, patient, and tech savvy. In my youth I was a “tinkerer” and hence have grown up to be handy with most gadgets and computer tasks.
I am often called upon by my friends, family, and co-workers to help with technical, electronic or a computer related problems which I am very good at helping with. I have the ability to speak in laymen everyday terms and have a patient show how attitude.
