This Gay cake row. Now I know the law is a complete ASS.

How can sticking to your principles be illegal. Being Gay is a personal choice. So is not being gay.

Whatever the beliefs of either party and I don't have a view one way or the other, but as a business they surely have a right to decide what business they do or do not accept!

I personally find the so-called "religious views" of many of these people pretty obnoxious, but would agree with SB that a business should have the right to refuse business. Having said that, as I understand it, it was some weeks after the original order that they came back and refused to service their customer. This would have caused some inconvenience and therefore "returning their money " is not really sufficient compensation for bigotry . The period of time that elapsed would also suggest that pressure was put upon the unfortunate company by whichever cult they belonged to .

This is a simple case.
The puppets are copyright of The Jim Henson Company. Commercial use of their images without a licence would breach that copyright. So the cake order can't be fulfilled.
