    Like most people here I'm pleased with the final verdict.

    Outside busybodies turned this into a cause celebre, which would have seen a liberty taken away.

    Ridiculous sums were blown further enriching lawyers, on a battle that should not have been waged in the first place.

      Correct ruling from the Supreme Court.

      Original cost of the cake £36.50
      Ashers Bakery legal fees £200,000
      Equality Commission legal fees £250,000

      What a ****ing waste of money.
      Weather forecast for tonight: dark.

      What sort of ****ing idiots take an argument over a cake so far. They should have all been told to grow up the minute a sniff of legal action was mentioned. Money and time wasting wallys.

      If the bakery refused to make a cake for a same sex wedding that is discrimination. But everyone is entitled to a view.

      I think the bakery are wrong but support their right to be wrong.

      You don't change attitudes by shutting people down.

      I think some mischief was being made here. It doesn't help anyone's cause.
      The cake wasn't for a wedding.

      This is actually my stance. He's a gay rights activist, and it's my opinion that he used that particular bakery as a means to achieve a notch on his activist banner.
      That was my immediate thought when I first heard the guy described as a gay rights activist. I'm sure there were probably other bakeries that would have quite happily made his cake. 100% with the court ruling here.
      Be dangerous. It's careful out there

      If I baked cakes and someone came into my shop and asked for a CPFC logo cake, you all know my answer, would I end up in court ?
      I surrender all control
      To the desire that consumes me whole
      Leads me by the hand to infinity
      Lies in wait at the heart of me - the Albion of course !

      Not the point it is the principle of my action to say no
      I surrender all control
      To the desire that consumes me whole
      Leads me by the hand to infinity

      You could say yes, then put the cake on a table and fire the icing all over the walls around it.

      Hey presto - a "Benteke Cake"
