Couple: 'It Shouldn't Be Gay Or Straight Issue'
A same sex central Iowa couple is embroiled in a fight with a local baker with strong beliefs over a wedding cake.
Trina Vodraska and Janelle Sievers, who are engaged to be married, said planning for their June wedding took an unexpected turn during a taste-testing appointment Thursday afternoon.
"It shouldn't be a gay or straight issue. It's a people issue," Sievers said.
"They came in and she introduced herself, and I said, 'Is this your sister?' (She said,) 'No, this is my partner.' I said, 'OK,' and I asked them to sit down and I said, 'We need to talk,'" said Victoria Childress, who runs her cake baking business from home. "I said, 'I'll tell you I'm a Christian, and I do have convictions.' And I said, 'I'm sorry to tell you, but I'm not going to be able to do your cake."
