A Christian bakery owner who refused to make a cake with a slogan supporting gay marriage has said he should be allowed to run his business according to his religious beliefs.
Ashers Baking Company could face legal action from an equality watchdog after declining an order for the cake with the Sesame Street puppets Bert and Ernie on top.
The gay rights activist customer who ordered the cake also wanted the logo of a campaign group called Queerspace included.
The bakery is based in Northern Ireland, the only part of the UK where same-sex marriage is not legal.
So here we go again. Compromise your beliefs or go out of business.
