You may recall a few incidents in recent years where Christian bakers who didn’t want to make cakes for gay weddings were dragged before the court of liberal public opinion and demonized. In some cases the bakers were sued, in others their businesses were attacked and boycotted.
Apparently, the same rules don’t apply in this case.

Walmart Workers Refuse to Make Cop’s Retirement Cake
Three Walmart workers in McDonough, Georgia refused to decorate a “thin blue line” cake for a police officer’s retirement party because they said it was racist.
A number of my Georgia readers alerted me to the story and on Saturday night I spoke directly with the police officer’s daughter. She asked that I not divulge her name and I’ve agreed to honor her request.
“I was so shocked,” she told me. “I didn’t know what to do or say or anything. I was trying not to lose my temper or make a scene.”
For the record, Walmart has confessed that most of her allegations are true. I’ll have more on that a bit later in this column.
The police officer’s daughter went to the Walmart on Willow Drive on Sept. 22 to order a flag for her father’s retirement party. He was leaving the force after 25-years on the job.
She showed the bakers a photograph of the police officer’s flag – the black and white version of Old Glory with a blue line.
“One of the bakers told me the design could be perceived as racist and nobody feels comfortable decorating the cake,” the police officer’s daughter told me.
As an alternative, she suggested a chocolate-frosted cake with a horizontal, frosted blue line.
But that design was also rejected by Walmart’s cake decorator.
Keep this story in mind the next time the left attacks a Christian baker.
If it weren’t for double standards, the left wouldn’t have any.
