Gareth Lee who claimed discrimination when a bakery refused to make a cake with a pro-gay marriage message is going to the ECHR to challenge a Supreme Court ruling that the Christian bakery owners had a right to refuse. Lee was told by Ashers bakery that it would not make a cake with the message “Support Gay Marriage” on it because it was contrary to the owners’ religious beliefs. The SC reversed earlier decisions that Ashers had discriminated against Lee on the grounds of him being gay. The Guardian report that Lee’s legal team will argue that no reasonable person would equate producing the cake for an individual private customer with the bakery supporting the pro-gay marriage message on it and that “there is no such a thing as a Christian business”.
