Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling for April 03, 2015
Lo, in the land of Indiana did come to a baker two men who lie with one another. Baker: Sorry, Im not going to sell you a cake! Yea, a new law in the land allowed the baker to discriminate against such people. Baker: Im required to! Its my religion! And then did come to the baker a women with her head uncovered and he did refuse her business Baker: wait what? Verily, for that was explicitly prohibited by this religious sect, which he did follow strictly. Baker: whoa! You're right...Um... And then did come to the baker a man of great riches and many possessions, Rich guy: My company needs 500 cakes a week! But. lo did the righteous baker refuse his business, for he did follow all his religious texts and teachings. Baker: Oh, come on! that camel-through-the eye-of - a needle thing isn't meant to be taken seriously! So it came to pass that the baker had no customers , and he was soon upon bankruptcy and ruin. And the two men who lie with each other did return to him with a kind of patronage. Men: wed like to buy a cake. Baker: But...why would you forgive me? We're required to. its our religion! Baker: See, this takes all of the fun out of discrimination!
