The Ballard Administration should be appalled at this story: A local baker in a city-owned property has refused to make rainbow cupcakes for a National Coming Out Day event.
Fox 59 has the story:
You know, I was almost willing to give the bakery the benefit of the doubt after Lily Stockton, the co-owner, said that the store, Just Cookies, didn't sell cupcakes and that the rainbow was too many colors for them to do. Then, her husband David, a co-owner had to open his mouth and drag out the "V" word: Values. He cited his impressionable children as a concern. What, the children haven't seen a rainbow before? Come on man.
It's amazing that the values of unity and understanding are often looked over. Just Cookies has the right to do business anyway they please, but discrimination is always wrong.
Mr. Stockton should let his wife do the talking from now on, too.
