Sharon Haller got a call from Arizona evangelist Joshua Feuerstein asking her to make a cake inscribed with the words “We do not support gay marriage.” Haller refused. Feuerstein videotaped the call, and went on a rant after the call ended.

The video was taken down, but Cut the Cake re-posted it Friday.

Cyndol Knarr, Haller’s daughter who works at the bakery, said they put it back up after the wave of criticism turned into support.

“Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! For standing up for what is right,” said one Facebook post.

The video came after this week’s controversial proposed law in Indiana allowing businesses to decline service based on religious beliefs, including opposition to homosexuality and gay marriage.


“We had hundreds of calls. It was every 30 seconds,” Haller said in an interview Friday.

Haller said she has spoken with the FBI and has been asked to keep track of calls.

“We’re just kind of scared right now,” Haller said…

The video could violate a Florida law that requires consent of all parties to record a telephone conversation, said Andrea Flynn Mogensen, a Sarasota lawyer who specializes in civil-liberty cases…

Feuerstein has a history of attacking atheists and gay-marriage proponents. According to his website, he is a former pastor in Fountain Hills, Ariz., and a “former television and radio evangelist who now uses social media to share his personal story of redemption and the hope of how Jesus Christ can heal a hurting heart!”

    That poor christian evangelist’s religion is under attack….
    What a load of garbage.

    At first viewing of this video I was sure that Joshua Feuerstein was a gay guy making a prank call..
    Well he was making a prank call and I’m still not sure he isn’t gay..

    What a numbskull. Doesn’t he know that many gays are Christians too? Even gay priests and, I suspect, himself too.

      I think he wants to win a Million bucks from the Conservative outrage machine.

    A. The last thing this guy needs is cake
    B. The likelihood of someone wanting an “anti gay” cake is as likely as someone wanting pizza at a wedding. Very poor bait.
    Full disclosure. A long standing tradition in my family. I would go to the grocery store bakery section, pick out a cake and have it decorated with something to the effect “Happy birthday buttface”, and deliver it to my sons place of employment. It’s just our close knit family sense of humor thing, that goes along with our family creedo, and the constant sea of snark, humor and practical jokes we swim in.
    That said it’s obvious to even the most casual observer that folks decorating cakes or catering weddings are pretty cautious about what they to anyone now.

    With a last name like this, Feuerstein, shouldn’t he be Jewish? Just asking.

    • jasperjava April 5th, 2015 at 3:54 pm

      It’s a German name.

      • Robert M. Snyder April 5th, 2015 at 10:15 pm

        It means “firestone” or “flint”.

    • fahvel April 6th, 2015 at 3:42 am

      whether you intended it or not, your comment is rather anti semitic or at the least, a classic stereotyping of jews.

    Apparently, equating one bakery’s refusal to serve a customer who wishes to express their act of love with another bakery’s refusal to support an act of hatred … is the Christian thing to do.
