This out pastry chef thinks gay ‘Nazis’ are ‘bullying’ Christians into making wedding cakes

This gay pastry chef is angry. He says LGBT “Nazis” are “bullying” Christians into making wedding cakes for same-sex weddings.

Jesse Bartholomew, who makes wedding cakes himself, says in the video that he is “disgusted” with gay and lesbian people.

The video, which comes as Sweet Cakes by Melissa was fined $135,000 for refusing to bake a cake for a same-sex couple, has been viewed nearly 150,000 times.

Bartholomew says: “I cannot tell you how disgusted I am with my fellow gay and lesbian community that they would stoop so low to force someone to bake a cake for them who simply doesn’t agree with them. They don’t have to bake a cake for you.

“Personally, that wedding cake should be so personal to you and your wedding—just as the ring, just as the invitations, just as to everything in planning a wedding,” he said. “That cake which costs hundreds—and my cakes can cost thousands—why would you want to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on a wedding cake and pay that money to someone who doesn’t want to make the cake for you?”

Going on, the says: “That is your personal piece of your wedding: your guests eat that, your cake is involved in your photos, that cake is taken in your mouth and you eat it in your stomach. That baker has to spend hours perfecting that cake for you, for your wedding day. And if that cake isn’t perfect, then it ruins your wedding.”

“So, you’re going to say that you want to force someone who doesn’t want to bake a cake for you? There’s no other bakers out there?” he asked.

He insisted that those who were “forcing” Christian bakers to make their cakes were shameful, saying: “You are forcing someone. You are being a Nazi and forcing someone to bake a wedding cake for you when there are hundreds of other gay and lesbians that would gladly have your business. Shame on you.”

Please watch! My message, as a baker, to the gay and lesbians forcing Christian bakers to make their wedding cakes.
