Bakers are appealing a decision, made in Belfast Courty Court, that they pay damages for "injury to feelings" that a couple say were caused by their refusal to decorate a cake with wording supporting same-sex marriage.
The bakers insist they've done nothing wrong and have simply acted according to their religion.

The Christian Institute claim the court decision will have dramatic consequences if it is allowed to stand. The owners of Ashers Baking Company have confirmed they will appeal last week’s court ruling that it had discriminated against a customer by refusing to decorate a cake with a slogan supporting same-sex marriage. Belfast County Court ordered Ashers to pay £500 damages for ‘injury to feelings’ after Judge Isobel Brownlie found that customer and gay rights activist Gareth Lee had been treated ‘less favourably’ and that the bakery had breached sexual orientation discrimination regulations. The McArthur family, who own and run Ashers, has decided to challenge the ruling after consulting with their lawyers.
