Poll: Should businesses keep their religious beliefs separate from their work?

What do you think?

A BAKERY IN Belfast that refused to make a marriage equality cake has been told that it must offer compensation or face a court case.

Ashers Bakery is run by a family with Christian beliefs. Daniel McArthur of the bakery said that they believe marriage is between a man and a woman and feel like they are being pursued by the Equality Authority because of their beliefs.

The bakery has been criticised for its stance, but says the cake was at odds with its beliefs. It refunded the customer.

The Equality Commission said that they have acted “unlawfully and contrary” to Regulation 5 of the Equality Act (Sexual Orientation regulations) (Northern Ireland) 2006.
