Rainbow frosting - the latest weapon in the "Gay Agenda"?

It would seem that the owner of the Just Cookies bakery thinks that filling an order for cupcakes with rainbow frosting for a gay student group at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) would "violate the values of the bakery".
"I explained we're a family-run business, we have two young, impressionable daughters and we thought maybe it was best not to do that," said co-owner David Stockton to a local Fox television station. He then added that it's his bakery's decision to decide what is obscene. Apparently rainbow colors fall under that label. "We have our values, and you know, some things ... for instance, if someone wants a cookie with an obscenity, well, we're not going to do that."
Okay I'm usually not one to try to tell other people how to run their business but I do draw the line at outright discrimination.

As for those two impressionable daughters if anything they just learned that it is okay to treat people differently over a characteristic that is not inherently bad. How's that for family values?

And since when is homosexuality an obscenity? Its not like being gay is such terrible thing.

(Also here is a link to conversation reporters had with the wife of the owner about the situation.)

Ah, down home folks and their good ol' fashioned valley-yous. Reminds me of a quote from Jim (played by Gene Wilder) in Blazing Saddles:
"You've got to remember that these are just simple farmers. These are people of the land. The common clay of the new West. You know... morons."

Yeah. It just sounds weird when people go on about their values as if they are so accepting but then turn around and cut down people for things that are not inherently good or bad.
