Ashers Baking Company Appeal Hearing

Ashers Baking Company go before the Court of Appeal in Belfast for a two-day hearing on 3 and 4 February in a bid to overturn a decision made last year which found they had broken political and sexual orientation discrimination laws.

The couple at the centre of the ‘gay cake’ case have told how their legal battle with equality watchdogs has strengthened their marriage, as well as their faith in God.

Please pray for the appeal hearing and sign the petition in support of Ashers.

Meanwhile, LGBT campaigner Peter Tatchell has declared his support for Ashers. “It is an infringement of freedom to require businesses to aid the promotion of ideas to which they conscientiously object,” he writes in an article for the Guardian. “Much as I wish to defend the gay community, I also want to defend freedom of conscience, expression and religion,” Tatchell affirms.
