Walmart Workers Disrespect The Police In Flap Over Cake For Retiring Cop. Had Enough Yet? – Richard
So, in our politically run-amuck world is it racist to bake a cake honoring police officers? That's what we were told last week by bakery workers at a Walmart Store in McDonough, Georgia.
The daughter of a retiring Georgia cop was looking to have a cake made for his retirement party with a "thin blue line" design but according to The Telegraph, an employee refused, saying, "the design could be perceived as racist and nobody feels comfortable decorating the cake." The design features the American flag in black and white with a blue strip running across it. When asked if she could get just a plain chocolate cake with the blue line she was told that too was racist and couldn't happen.
The story went viral on Facebook last Friday and resulted in an apology from corporate. The local Walmart eventually made the cake but the gesture, we are told, appeared to be more of a response to public pressure than anything else. The store also offered the woman a gift card and additional items for the retirement party at no cost.
Eleven months ago the owners of the Oregon bakery, Sweet Cakes By Melissa were ordered to pay 135 thousand dollars in damages to a same-sex couple for refusing to bake a cake for the couple's wedding. The bakers cited their religious beliefs. See where all of this is going? It is considered discrimination for Christians to exercise their religious beliefs in today's day and age but hating on cops is in style so it is acceptable...hell, encouraged!
I wonder if the Walmart bakers got down on one knee when they refused to bake the cake for the retiring cop?
