The Cake ProsAnother wedding vendor in Pennsylvania has turned away a lesbian couple.

Towleroad.com reports:

A popular bakery in Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania is making headlines after denying a wedding cake to a gay couple, WFMZ reports: Bethany and Jennifer Petrich now have to make a change of plans for a ceremony to renew their vows, WBRE reported. The women wanted to get a cake from The Cake Pros, a bakery in Schuylkill Haven. “I loved the work they did and it tasted great. It’s a hometown bakery. I wanted to support my hometown,” said Jennifer Petrich. “My mom, who is planning our wedding, called and made the appointment for us. It was okay at that time and she was open and honest and said it’s for Bethany and Jennifer.”

But the women say things took a not-so-sweet turn when Jennifer’s mom received a phone call. “They had called and said to her that they were a Christian bakery and the owner had talked to Jesus for two weeks and that because it was two females getting married she couldn’t make our cake,” said Jennifer.

It should be noted that Schuylkill County is the same county with the zombie clerk who keeps trying to singlehandedly turn back marriage equality in the state.
