• Patrick Stewart Defends Bakery for Refusing to Make ‘Gay’ Cake

    Gay rights supporter and film legend Sir Patrick Stewart probably turned a lot of heads earlier this week when he defended an Irish bakers right to refuse to place a gay message on a cake.

    During an interview celebrating the tenth anniversary of Amnesty International opening its Human Rights Action Centre, Stewart was asked his thought on the Irish bakery that was charged and fined for refusing to put a pro-gay message on a cake.

    A few weeks ago, Asher’s Baking Company was convicted of charges of discrimination after gay rights activist Gareth Lee asked that a cake be baked with a message that said “Support Gay Marriage.”

    They’re planning to appeal the conviction, but the bakery already has one prominent supporter in Stewart.

    And so, Stewart said, “I would support their rights to say, ‘No, this is personally offensive to my beliefs, I will not do it,’” the X-Men star said of the controversy.
