The icing on the cake

Madelyn Rehkop, artist

A gay couple walked into a bakery in June of 2012 and asked the man behind the counter to make a cake for their same-sex wedding. The man refused because it was against his religion. He was taken to court, and the jury ruled that while he may not agree with the same concepts or traditions that these two men uphold, but in America there is a principle for tolerance and acceptance. He was let off with a warning.
