On Thursday, in Duncan, Oklahoma, Woodrow Wilson Elementary School teacher Erica Mackey announced she had a surprise for her third-grade students:
The student reports that Mrs. Mackey announced that she had “the holy Bible” and asked if anyone would like one. Nearly all the students walked up to her desk and she handed them out. After seeing his classmates take Bibles from the teacher, the child felt peer-pressured and coerced to do the same.

Creationist Josh Feuerstein’s Attempt to Punish Baker Who Wouldn’t Print Anti-Gay Message on Cake May Have Backfired
It’s already been established that you can’t expect a baker to write hateful anti-gay messages on cakes. If they say no, it’s fine, assuming they’re going to reject all hateful messages regardless of who’s asking for it.
But that didn’t stop another Christian from asking a baker to write “We do not support gay marriage” on a cake. She said no. He cried hypocrisy (because he doesn’t understand how saying no to all hate speech is different from rejecting a message of love specifically from gay customers).
What makes this story especially interesting is that the Christian was Josh Feuerstein the Christian loudmouth on YouTube who claimed to disprove evolution in three minutes (spoiler: he failed):
That same Josh Feuerstein called up Cut the Cake bakery in central Florida the other day, asked for the #HateCake, recorded the phone call without her permission, and posted it online, leading to harassment of the owners by Feuerstein’s followers. (He later took down the video at the baker’s request, but it was reposted elsewhere.)
