Defends Christian bakers

Makes Statement

Stewart says he supports the right of Christian bakers to refuse to make cakes they find offensive. Talking about a case in Ireland where Christian bakers were fined £500 after refusing to bake a cake that a carried the slogan “Support Gay Marriage”, alongside an image of Sesame Street puppets Bert and Ernie.:

I found myself on the side of the bakers. It was not because it was a gay couple that they objected, it was not because they were celebrating some sort of marriage or an agreement between them. It was the actual words on the cake they objected to. Because they found the words offensive. I would support their rights to say ‘no, this is personally offensive to my beliefs, I will not do it’.
