Seth MacFarlane Compares Not Baking A Gay Wedding Cake To Racial Discrimination

Family Guy creator, Seth MacFarlane has compared religious freedom to discriminate against LGBT people to the freedom to discriminate on the basis of race.

Taking to Twitter the comedian said:

‘It’s a shorter walk than we think, particularly today, from “I won’t bake them a cake because they’re gay” to “I won’t seat him here because he’s black,”‘

On Monday the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favour of the Christian baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple, citing First Amendment violation from the Colorado Civil Rights Commission’s original ruling that ordered the baker to “cease and desist from discriminating against same-sex couples by refusing to sell them wedding cakes or any product [they] would sell to heterosexual couples.”

 

Other celebrities have started to speak out against the ruling. Including actor and gay rights activist George Takei also took to Twitter expressing his concerns about the link between racial and sexual discrimination.
