Gareth Lee to challenge ruling that Northern Ireland bakery had right to refuse to bake cake with pro-gay marriage message. Lawyers representing a man from Northern Ireland who sued a bakery for refusing to make a cake with pro-gay marriage message are going to Europe to challenge a supreme court ruling that its evangelical Christian owners had a right to refuse to bake it. Four years later the supreme court reversed earlier decisions at Belfast county court and court of appeal that Ashers had discriminated against Lee on the grounds of him being gay. They ruled therefore that there was no discrimination on those grounds. The lawyers contend that no reasonable person would equate producing the cake for an individual private customer with the bakery supporting the pro-gay marriage message on it. It was for personal use by Lee and became his private property upon payment and collection.

Up to 30 more Catholic priests in Greater Belfast are 'active on the gay scene', a rebel cleric claimed last night. Pat Buckley, the bishop of a breakaway Catholic church that is not recognised by the Vatican, also said a support group has been set up in the English Catholic Church to help homosexual priests serving in London. Some of the 30 gay clerics in Belfast 'have spoken to me personally about their lifestyle', said Buckley, who admitted he was gay himself four years ago. Naturally, I would never disclose their names but I am absolutely confident they are gay and active on the scene.
