    This is a row by mutual consent.

    The would-be purchasers of the cake went into the shop with the full knowledge that they would be refused. They went there to be offended.
    The cake-shop owners duly obliged and offended them. They could have simply, under contract law, refused to supply a cake without assigning a reason. They did state a reason, a reason that was illegal.


    Oh, welcome back Martin. Long time, no see.

    This is the kind of case that brings the equality culture into disrepute. Business owners should be able to turn away business if they want to, it is called freedom.

    This is the kind of case that brings the equality culture into disrepute.
    It has been widely acknowledged that the case is unwise.
    Especially when the people who ordered the cake knew the religious beliefs of the bakery owners.

    But, under Contract Law, in that jurisdiction, business owners can refuse to accept an order, without assigning a reason.
    It was when they gave an allegedly prejudiced reason for refusing the order, that the possibility of legal action arose.
