Speaking to staunchly conservative website TheBlaze, the co-owners of Kerns Bake Shop claim they’ve received all sorts of threats.They even pleaded to Fox News: “We just want equal rights.”
Edie and David Delorme, who both own a bakery in the East Texas city of Longview, gained instant notoriety when they refused Ben Valencia and Luis Marmolejo as customers, insisting that they don’t make cakes for “homosexual marriages” due to their religious faith.
Now, they’re insisting that someone called and threatened to hurt their 17-year-old son.
“Our son got a call,” Edie Dolorme told TheBlaze, “where they threatened to burn our house down and violate him with a broken beer bottle. That was probably the worst.”
They say that, out of fear for her well-being, they’ve sent their daughter to live with relatives.
No mention of whether they bothered to actually call the police.
