‘Gay cake’ row: Court told Ashers Bakery changed its mind over order

Don’t accept something if you’re not 100% okay with it. Especially if it involves a regular customer.

A bakery in Belfast accepted an order for a cake with a gay rights slogan but changed its mind, a court has heard.

Ashers Bakery Company faces a discrimination case, brought with the support of the Equality Commission.

The Christian-run firm cancelled the order about 48 hours later, according to a barrister for the gay rights activist at the centre of the case.
