    An Indianapolis cookie shop could be evicted from its longtime location for refusing a special order from a college homosexual group.

    Controversy arose this week after the owners of the bakery cited moral objections to a special-order request for rainbow-decorated cookies for next week's "National Coming Out Day" observance at a nearby university campus. Stockton told the caller he did not feel comfortable in supporting homosexual values, especially because it would not set a good example for his two daughters.

    Micah Clark of the American Family Association of Indiana says there are reports the city might evict Stockton, citing a local "anti-discrimination" statute.

    "If this were a Muslim-owned bakery, what would happen?" he wonders. "I don't think the city would pursue it the way they're pursuing it now. I think this is part of the liberal agenda where people must conform to the views that our culture wants in support of homosexuality."

    The way i see it they were not discriminating. They turned down a special order. It is not as if they turned someone away from the shop and were unwilling to sell them a cookie from the case.

    Of course it was discrimination. The dude who owned the bakery even said so in that he morally disagreed with their lifestyle choice...

    Right so he turned down a SPECIAL ORDER. He did not say they could not purchase the same things that were available to everyone else.

    The reason he turned down the order:

    "Stockton told the caller he did not feel comfortable in supporting homosexual values, especially because it would not set a good example for his two daughters."

    Um, nope - don't see anything about a special order in that...

    You think the way we tell you to think or you are unemployed.

    He refused service. Anyone can refuse service to anyone they want.
