A gay wedding cake story from New Zealand

In 2018, rural town New Zealand baker Kath received a request to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding. Due to her personal beliefs, and because she wanted to follow the integrity of her heart, she politely refused. What followed was a couple of days of intense media coverage and 'hate speech' messages on her social media accounts and website which were personal and nasty. Some of the threats were physical and her home address was published. But then she 'regained her backbone'... See the important message she has for all of us who believe in traditional marriage and want to follow the 'integrity of our heart'.
