A central Florida baker says she has received death threats after she refused to bake a cake with an anti-marriage equality message.

Joshua Feuerstein, a former pastor and social media personality, posted a video online of him calling Cut the Cake and asking for the cake.

“I need a sheet cake and I need it to say, 'We do not support gay marriage,'” Feuerstein is heard telling owner Sharon Haller in the nearly 4-minute video.

“Is this a crank call?” Haller asks.


“Oh, we wouldn't do that,” Haller responds. “Sorry.”

“I love gay people,” Feuerstein tells viewers after speaking with Haller. “For me, this is nothing against gay people. For me, this is about religious freedom.”

“I'm asking that you today would show the hypocrisy that's going on by Cut the Cake and Sharon Haller and all these other bakeries. Would you take a moment and click share on the bottom of this video. Why? We have to protect religious freedom in America,” he adds.

The video was viewed more than 1 million times before Feuerstein took it down at the bakery's request, Local 6 reported. Haller has since re-posted it.

“I wanted to see if it was actually a double standard,” Feuerstein told Local 6. “If a gay-friendly bakery and one that advertised themselves as so on pro-LGBT wedding sites would actually bake a cake that went against their principles.”

Haller said that hundreds of calls brought her business to a halt.

“We started getting some hundreds of phone calls and making very nasty and negative gestures towards our business, toward us,” she said.

A GoFundMe.com campaign set up to help Haller offset the losses has raised nearly $10,000 in two days.
