There is an update to the sketchy story described below and it’s a beaut. Two weeks before the pastor sued Whole Foods, he was sued himself for defaulting on his $27,000 school loan. He obviously needed money. It doesn’t stop there.
KXAN reports that Whole Foods filed a counter suit claiming Brown was lying, and released surveillance video of him checking out with the cake in his hands. In the video, the sticker on the cake box Brown says he did not remove, is in a different spot.
All the people who attacked Whole Foods without a scintilla of proof were wrong.
Whole Foods is an unlikely place for gay hate but one Austin preacher says gay hate is exactly what he experienced. Pastor Jordan Brown ordered a cake from the bakery at Whole Foods and asked that “Love Wins” be written on top but he got the cake as you see it in the photo.
The liberal media has been blanking out the word “fag”, but it’s important people get the complete story.
In the video below, the pastor says the box is still sealed. I have no idea if he could pull that label off from the top and reseal it but if you look at the wording on the cake, the word, “fag”, is written with a considerably lighter hand and the dollops on the lettering are not logically applied. The “g” is also inconsistent.
The accusing Pastor is founder and chief pastor at the Church of Open Doors. Only 26 people have visited the Church’s Facebook page.
He claims he noticed it when he got in the car. It’s unlikely that it would have been sold to him with this glaring slur shouting out through the see-through box and it’s unlikely he didn’t check the writing when he picked it up. It’s also unlikely he wouldn’t have gone right back into the store to complain.
Why did he have the writing put along the top? Why would a bakery employee do this and how did they even know he was gay?
This pastor has already filed a lawsuit though the incident only took place on the 14th. He’ll drop the lawsuit if Whole Foods agrees to diversity training.
Whole Foods has responded.
The team member wrote “Love Wins” at the top of the cake as requested by the guest and that’s exactly how the cake was packaged and sold at the store. Our team members do not accept or design bakery orders that include language or images that are offensive. Whole Foods Market has a zero tolerance policy for discrimination.”
This is my take.
