By Joseph DeCaro, Worthy News Correspondent
INDIANAPOLIS (Worthy News)-- An Indiana bakery whose Christian owners declined a request to make a cake for a same-sex ceremony has decided to close, according to the Christian Post.
Randy McGath, who co-own's 111 Cakery, said his wife just wanted to spend more time with their four grandchildren. However, business became problematic last March when gay activists protested the bakery after the McGaths' declined a cake order for a same-sex wedding.
"As Christians, we have a sincere love for people. As artists, we must find the inspiration to create something special for our clients. When asked to do a cake for an occasion or with a theme ... that is in opposition to our faith, that inspiration is not found...." the bakers posted on Facebook.
Although 111 Cakery was situated in the midst of a homosexual subculture when it first opened in 2012, the McGaths said they didn't want to be associated with a gay commitment ceremony as it would constitute a commitment to sin.
