Did you know that the colors of the rainbow are now debaucherous? According to David Stockton, the owner of Just Cookies in Indianapolis, they are, and he can’t make cupcakes with rainbow frosting for a gay student group at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, lest his daughters see them and, I guess, turn gay:
“I explained we’re a family-run business, we have two young, impressionable daughters and we thought maybe it was best not to do that,” said co-owner David Stockton.
“We have our values, and you know, some things … for instance, if someone wants a cookie with an obscenity, well, we’re not going to do that.”
It never ceases to amaze me how convoluted some people’s sense of “values” really is. This was an order for, again, cupcakes, with rainbow colors. If the group had come in and requested something actually vulgar, I could understand.
But no. A public establishment decided that they would refuse to fill an order simply because it had the taint of “gay.”
I do hope the good people of Indianapolis send a message to Just Cookies by patronizing every other bakery in a two mile radius, even more than usual.
