Dickson County Cake-Baker Refuses Service to Gay Couple

A business in Dickson County is the latest to join in on what has become an anomalous form of activism — refusing to provide a wedding cake to a same-sex couple, Out & About Nashville reports. Susie Dennison, owner of Susie’s Sweets in Burns, after an initial consultation sent the couple a message saying: “I really enjoyed our time together and I truly wish you the best but after realizing that your union will be of the same sex, I cannot with my spiritual conviction and beliefs, do your cake!” Dennison’s husband, Paul Dennison, later confirmed the incident, further stating that this is not the first same-sex couple the baker has turned away. This is the second recent denial of service in middle Tennessee, with the Rhinestone Wedding Chapel in Nashville shunning a gay couple seeking to get married earlier this month.
