Clausen: Wegmans says Ex-Muslims group can buy cake
The all-everything, 89-store chain recently reversed a somewhat odd decision by some bakery workers in Fairfax, Virginia.
It’s where employees earlier this month refused to make a cake celebrating the third anniversary of the Ex-Muslims of North America, a nonprofit group of former followers of Islam with about 500 members in the Fairfax area. The group has about 24,000 total members.
The cake was to include the group’s name, logo and a celebratory “Congratulations on 3 years” message
But a worker found the order somewhat questionable. A supervisor went a step further claiming it was offensive, the Ex-Muslim group said. They decided to refuse service, and offered little explanation for their decision.
