John Kasich On Bakeries That Won’t Serve Same-Sex Couples: ‘Make Them A Cupcake’

He’s so fucking ignorant as is everyone else who thinks like him. Keep brushing these issues under the rug and it will explode in your face and we all know explosions are NEVER pretty.

This week, Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) suggested that bakeries inclined to refuse service to a same-sex couple should still serve them.

Speaking at the University of Virginia on Monday, Kasich insisted that churches should not have to violate their beliefs, but the same is not true of businesses. “People talk about religious liberty, and I think frankly our churches should not be forced to do anything that’s not consistent with them,” he said, “but if you’re a cupcake maker and someone wants a cupcake, make them a cupcake. Let’s not have a big lawsuit or argument over all this stuff. Move on.”

Cupcakes have not really been part of the controversy at bakeries. Indeed, it is wedding cakes that bakers like Jack Phillips in Colorado or Aaron and Melissa Klein in Oregon have refused to sell to same-sex couples. It’s unclear if Kasich meant to express support for nondiscrimination laws or if he is frustrated by the controversy some business owners are creating. Either way, his position is still to the left of other Republican presidential candidates like Marco Rubio and in particular, Ted Cruz, who has specifically highlighted “protecting” religious business owners as a pillar of his campaign.
