Actor Patrick Stewart Supports Christian Bakers Who Stood up for Beliefs

via The Blaze:

“Star Trek” and “X-Men” star Sir Patrick Stewart told BBC’s “Newsnight” this week that he’s siding with the owners of a bakery in Northern Ireland who were recently convicted of discrimination after refusing to make a cake with a message supporting gay marriage.

“It was not because it was a gay couple that they objected — it was not because they were celebrating some kind of marriage or an agreement between them,” he said. “It was the actual words on the cake that they objected to, because they found the words offensive.”

The actor continued, “And I would support their rights to say, ‘No, this is personally offensive to my beliefs. I will not do it.’”
