Bake the Cake

August 17, 2017

It’s time to bust one of the long standing arguments around the marriage equality debate.

The argument regarding freedom of religion and conscience for the wedding cake maker.

Right now in Australia it is legal for a gay or lesbian person to buy a wedding cake.

Right now in Australia it is illegal for a wedding cake maker to discriminate against a gay or lesbian person wanting to buy a wedding cake.

It’s up to the purchaser what they do with the cake. It could be a prop in a movie, used in a marriage equality protest, they could do a Jason Biggs and “American Pie” the cake, or they might just have a craving for that meticulously crafted icing.

Or they could be purchasing it on behalf of straight friends for their wedding celebrations.

A cake baker does not participate in a wedding. They do not solemnise weddings.  It’s truly none of their business.

So next time you see someone raise the wedding cake argument, feel free to set them straight.
