U.K. Supreme Court Hears 'Gay Cake' Case

Arguments in a "gay cake" case have been heard before the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom. Ashers Bakery, a Northern Ireland establishment, appealed a lower court's ruling that it discriminated against a gay man by not baking a cake he ordered, reports BBC News.

Gareth Lee, a gay activist, ordered a pastry iced with the text "Support Gay Marriage" from the Belfast bakery in May 2014. The Christian owners — married couple Daniel and Amy McArthur — refused, saying at the time that preparing such an order would contradict their religious beliefs.

"This is a case of forced or compelled speech, unlike other cases which have come before the court," lawyer David Scoffield told the Supreme Court in the couple's defense. Scoffield said that the McCarthys were forced to "choose between operating their businesses or living and acting in accordance with their religious beliefs, and we say that cannot be the law."

Back in court today .... the ‘gay cake’ case .... 4 years after order for the cake was refused. Moreover, Scoffield claimed Lee's sexual orientation was not the basis for the refusal of service. "They would equally have refused to provide that cake with the slogan to a heterosexual customer," he said.

In response, Lee's attorney said he had "no abusive intent" in placing the order. Hearings were held Tuesday and Wednesday. Afterward, Lady Hale, the president of the Supreme Court, said a decision would not be announced "any time soon."

"This is not to say that we don't hope that it might be before the summer, but these cases are by definition complex and difficult," Hale said, reports BBC News. A decision is expected by late 2018 or early 2019.

The four-year legal battle has been a long and costly one for both sides. The Christian Institute, a U.K. evangelical group that funds Ashers' case, has spent £200,000 over the past four years. The Equality and Human Rights Commission, which supports Lee, has contributed a total of £150,000.

In December, the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments in a similar case: Masterpiece Cakeshop, Ltd v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, the roots of which began in 2012 when Lakewood-based baker Jack Phillips, citing religious reasons, refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple, David Mullins and Charlie Craig.

Phillips had appealed a 2013 decision that he had violated a state law that prohibits businesses from refusing service due to a person’s sexual orientation. His defense argued that cake decorating is his "creative expression" that is protected by the First Amendment.

The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to issue a decision before July. (Pub 5/6)

Special Features of GayTies

All About Our Chat Rooms
Of course, ANY member can go into the chat rooms at ANY time; it's a free gay chat room service. You do not have to be a premium member to use it. All you do is go into chat by clicking on the “Chat” link in the green header. As soon as you click to enter the chat room, that link changes to a red flashing “Chatting Now.” This is so everyone will know you are in there and they can enter also, if they wish. The book icon you see at the bottom of the chat window explains the simple features about chatting.

There are three popular ways to start a chat:

1. The first is spontaneous. Whenever you see the flashing “Chatting Now,” go in there.

2. Another good way is to arrange it. If you want to chat with someone you see on line, message them to meet you in chat, either right then, or a set a pre-arranged time later. You can also message someone who is not on line, and set a pre-arranged time to meet in chat. Some members will use our personal Ads to meet guys for chat.

3. The other way is to start an international group chat. Here is how to do that.

Here are the 3 steps to start an online chat group session:

First click on “Last 100 logins” green link on the home page and scroll through the profiles to see who is currently online.

Second, type out (or copy and paste) a short invite such as: “I am creating a group chat session in 5 minutes, please click on 'Chat Rooms' and meet us there.”

Third, send this message to ALL those gay chat lovers currently “on line” who selected “Cyber / chat buddies” as one of their interests.” Usually you see about a couple dozen members who are currently on line, AND interested in chat. Use the "Send message" link under each member's photo and simply paste that message invite, and send it.

Do this sort of quickly so everyone gets the invite within a few minutes or so. In group chats, do not get selective. Message everyone you see online.

And …. that’s it. You are done. Chat with any of them, or let them chat with each other. It may be helpful for you to explain some features of chat, while you are in chat.

We suggest that before you send out your group invites, go into the chat room first and click on everything. Get a little bit familiar with the rooms, how to have private “whisper” chats, and especially click on the book icon, which contains very simple chat instructions.

It is not critical, but the rooms are for different subjects of chat. People can chat in the Lobby, or go into a subject room to be with those of similar interest. The Kinky Basement is for guys into kink talk as well as beating off, the Boner Room is for all kinds of jo scenes, and the Friendship Lounge is for guys seeking a non-sexual chat with cyber friends. And, you may see other rooms which members have created, because you can create your own room, for your own purpose.

What to chat about? Well, of course, all your erotic personal stuff. But also about gay clips on Gayties. Gay videos are a hot social network topic here, as well as kink and romance. We ask everyone to be courteous and patient as we all get to learn more about how chat works. Finally, we suggest one other thing, … be adventurous and have fun.
