From G. M. Lyon
Sir, - Even if the bakers knew that the would-be cake-buyer was
homosexual (which they deny), it would not prove discrimination
against him (News, 22 May).
Only if it were also demonstrated that the bakers would accept the
same order from heterosexuals would it show that the homosexual
client was being treated differently and unfairly. The
discrimination was clearly against the sentiments in the cake's
slogan, not against any person or party in law.
Is equality legislation being misused to compel people to
promote beliefs that they oppose?
