It got a little awkward today on The View when guest host Candace Cameron Bure defended the rights of the Oregonian bakery Sweetcakes who refused to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple and were subsequently sued. (The bakery lost and has to pay the couple $135K in damages, something Candace found outrageous.) The former Full House child star and author is a devout Christian who claimed that Sweetcakes did not discriminate against the couple for being gay, just their wedding which goes against their religious beliefs. Raven-Symoné, who is out herself and holds the opposite stance, could barely make eye contact with Candace as she deconstructed the guest host’s argument.
View co-host Nicole Wallace stepped in to mention that she thinks it’s likely we will see a case like that against Sweetcakes go to the Supreme Court in the next two years, and then the show moved into the next hot topic. Still, things got mighty chilly in The View studio today. You can watch the clip in its entirely here.
