Muslim Bakers and Gay Weddings: A Liberal Dilemma

A few weeks ago I wondered to myself

What would happen if a gay couple went to a Muslim bakery and asked for a cake for their gay wedding?

Why haven’t any gay couples targeted Muslim owned bakeries? Probably because they tend to be a little bit more “Allah HuAkbar-ish” than Christians. It is a lot safer to take Jack Phillips (read his story here) to court than someone named Mahmoud Ahmed Mohamed! I am no way saying that people with Muslim sounding names are dangerous, but merely that a guy with that name, verses Jack Phillips, is more likely to be a violent person. Not racism. Just math.

It would be a huge dilemma for liberals—if a Muslim refused to bake a cake for a gay wedding—who both champion the rights of gays to marry and seek to pretend that Islam is just the best. The President loves Islam,

“The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer.”

How can a Christian man state that? Can you imagine a Muslim saying, “The sweetest sound I know is the infidels singing hymns to Jesus” or “I just love it when those nasty zionists blow the Shofar on Rosh Hashanah.”

But the president has much more to say about the virtues of Islam.

“Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance,”

Tolerance?! Tell that to gays in Iran! Or Christians in the face of ISIS. And it is not just in Islamic countries that we find this lack of tolerance, but in US based many Muslim-owned bakeries.

There is no doubt that the president sees Islam very different than many of us.

We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world — including in my own country.”

Did he mean Kenya? (I couldn’t help myself) Because I can’t think of one way Islam has shaped America. Well actually, thanks to Islam we now have an office of Homeland Security and get X-rayed at the airport.

So, yea, I was thinking about this and boom, I can across this video! Apparently a good number of muslims will not bake cake for a gay wedding, but no one will sue them and no judge will demand that they bake a cake for a gay wedding—just Christians.

I've never read a book on leadership quite like this. Ron Cantor's approach is totally unique. This is not a book of pithy motivational poster quotes. Ron is honest and vulnerable.
