Pennsylvania Bakery Turns Away Lesbian Couple

Thursday, August 14th, 2014

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.

Pennsylvania Marriage Equality Plaintiff Dies Without Marrying Partner

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

Pennsylvania Lesbian CoupleOne of the plaintiffs in a Pennsylvania marriage equality case died of a stroke before being able to marry her partner.

Towleroad.com reports:

Fredia Hurdle (on the left) fought a long, tough battle to achieve marriage equality in Pennsylvania, the state she and partner Lynn Hurdle called home. Nearly three months ago they won, and Pennsylvania was yet another domino of inequality struck down by the courts. However, in a tragic turn, Fredia passed away last week after suffering a stroke, never having married her partner of 24 years. She was only fifty years old.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports: Maybe they could get officially married in July, Lynn Hurdle thought, to mark the fifth anniversary of their original wedding ceremony. But her daughter planned to marry in October, and Fredia Hurdle said they should wait until after her wedding. It was her year, her “moment in the sun,” she told the woman she had long considered her wife. “It’s legal. We have time,” she said.

So sad that they didn’t get married before this happened.

Pennsylvania Wedding Boutique Turns Away Lesbian Couple

Saturday, August 9th, 2014

WW Bridal

Another day, another Christian wedding vendor turning away a same sex couple.

Pink News reports:

A Christian wedding boutique in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, has found itself amid a controversy for refusing to serve a lesbian couple. The WW Bridal shop’s owners spoke to local media, and admitted turning away a lesbian couple because of their religious beliefs. They said they had sought legal counsel in case the couple decide to sue. Because the state of Pennsylvania does not have a law banning discrimination based on sexual orientation, attorneys have suggested the shop may be within its rights.

This remains the thorniest question in the wake of marriage equality wins across the USA. But would it be ok if the store turned away an elderly couple because they couldn’t procreate? Or a mixed-race couple because of the store owners’ religious beliefs?

Pennsylvania Zombie Clerk Shot Down Again

Tuesday, August 5th, 2014

Zombie ClerkYes, she’s at it again. The Third Circuit shot down a Pennsylvania Clerk’s attempt to derail marriage equality yet again.

LGBTQ Nation reports:

A federal appeals court has rejected a Pennsylvania county clerk’s latest effort to overturn a federal judge’s ruling allowing same-sex couples to marry in the state… The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit on Monday denied a request by Theresa Santai-Gaffney, the Register of Wills and Orphans’ Court Clerk for Schuylkill County, Pa., seeking an “en banc” hearing in her bid to gain standing to defend the state’s ban on same-sex marriage… On July 3, a three judge panel of the Third Circuit rejected Santai-Gaffney’s bid to gain standing in the case, affirming the District Court’s ruling that “if the highest elected official in the commonwealth chooses to abide by our decision, it defies credulity that we would permit a single citizen to stand in for him to perfect an appeal.”

What is this, her fourth or fifth attempt? Give it a rest, Ms. Santai-Gaffney, it ain’t gonna happen. Isn’t “frivolous lawsuits” a thing?
