[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The war on Christianity extends beyond the shores of the United States. It is taking place around the world in various ways and forms. In some countries, we are witnessing Christians being attacked, raped, and slaughtered by Muslim terrorists. In others, we are witnessing individuals being attacked by LGBT activists and the government for their Christian faith if they refuse to participate in a same-sex wedding or openly accept and celebrate all things homosexual.

It is happening as well in other countries. In Ireland, Christian bakers have come under fire for declining to make a pro-gay marriage cake and and one major Hollywood actor has spoken out in their defense.
Sir Patrick Stewart is best known for starring in Star Trek: The Next Generation and X-Men. He was born and raised in England and recently returned there in 2004 after years of living in Los Angeles. He considers himself to be a socialist, is a member of the Labour Party, and he just came to the defense of Christian bakers in Ireland who found themselves facing a fine and accusation of discrimination because they did not want to make a cake with the words “Support Gay Marriage.”
[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”553157113d3ff”][vc_column_text]Colin and Karen McArthur own Ashers Baking Company. They were approached by Garrett Lee, a gay activist, and were asked to make the support gay marriage cake. Based upon their beliefs, they declined. Like clockwork, they were sued and a judge sided in favor of Lee. The judge ruled that the McArthurs discriminated against Lee based on sexual orientation and his political beliefs. They were ordered by pay $765 to Lee for ‘injury to his feelings.’
Regarding this case, Stewart, despite his left leaning politics, sided strongly with the Christian bakers. During an interview with the BBC, he said, “It was not because it was a gay couple that they objected — it was not because they were celebrating some kind of marriage or an agreement between them. It was the actual words on the cake that they objected to, because they found the words offensive. And I would support their rights to say, ‘No, this is personally offensive to my beliefs. I will not do it.’”
