Wegmans Apologizes for Refusing to Bake Cake for Ex-Muslims
by Michael Gryboski
Grocery store chain Wegmans is apologizing to an ex-Muslim group after it refused to make a cake for the organization amid concerns that its message might be offensive to Muslims.
Last month, Ex-Muslims of North America requested the cake from a Fairfax, Virginia, Wegmans store but their order was denied.
In a letter addressed to CEO Daniel Wegman and President Colleen Wegman, Freedom From Religion Foundation staff attorney Andrew Seidel wrote that refusing to make the cake was "a serious civil rights violation."
"Refusing to bake and decorate a cake for a group of ex-Muslims is refusing to provide equal enjoyment of goods, services, privileges, and advantages on the basis of religious identification. It is unlawful discrimination," Seidel said.
