Whole Foods countersues Pastor Jordan Brown over gay cake allegation

The openly homosexual pastor Jordan Brown made headlines after filing a lawsuit claiming that a Whole Foods in Austin, Texas added an anti-gay slur to a cake he ordered. Now, the chain has launched a lawsuit alleging he lied about the whole incident, noting their security camera footage and the employee from the “LGBTQ community” who prepared the cake.

Brown said he asked for a cake that said “Love Wins,” but after he left the store he discovered the cake said “Love Wins Fag.”

In a lawsuit filed within hours of buying the cake on Monday, Brown said he was seeking damages and monetary relief for mental anguish, court costs and other expenses.

Whole Foods Market quickly produced a surveillance video disputing his story.

“Our team member wrote ‘Love Wins’ at the top of the cake as requested by the guest, and that’s exactly how the cake was packaged and sold at the store,” Whole Foods Marketing Field Associate Rachel Malish responded.

“Our team members do not accept or design bakery orders that include language or images that are offensive,” Malish said.  “Whole Foods Market has a zero tolerance policy for discrimination.”

According to Whole Foods, the employee who decorated the cake is homosexual. “We stand behind our bakery team member, who is part of the LGBTQ community,” they said, “and the additional team members from the store who confirmed the cake was decorated with only the message ‘Love Wins.'”

“No team members, including the cashier who rang the guest up, saw this word on the cake,” the store said.

“We believe his accusations are fraudulent and we intend to take legal action against both Mr. Brown and his attorney,” a company statement read.

Besides employee testimony, their security video shows Brown buying the cake, which had its UPC label pasted on the top of the box, while Brown’s viral video accusation shows the UPC label on the bottom and side of the box.

Additionally, the letters “Love Wins” and “Fag” are different.  One tweet analyzed, “Clearly not same icing tip used to create F-A-G as rest of letters. Much finer. Had to do double pass.”

If Whole Foods is right, Brown joins an ever-expanding list of alleged anti-LGBT hate crimes that turned out to be fraudulent.

“This is not surprising.  We’ve seen this before,” Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth told LifeSiteNews. “Sadly, some homosexual activists are so desperate to be seen as victims that they create their own fake ‘victim crimes.’”

“It is the terrible truth that you could fill a large book documenting fake homosexual activists ‘hate crime’ hoaxes,” LaBarbera continued.  “This says a lot about the homosexual movement, that it is forced to manufacture and politicize hate to win sympathy as supposed civil rights victims.”

“The truth is, the gay movement is about disordered sexuality, not civil rights,” LaBarbera told LifeSiteNews.

    What? You truly use “Americans for Truth (About Homosexuality),” a well-known anti-gay group, to conclude a news article. I guess I now know where your prejudice lies.
