Anyone ever been caught selling cakes from home??? - Page 8  

post #106 of 177
Please, forgive my ignorance...

I've read chutzpah's comments on other threads when someone mentions something to the effect of "....because I'm a christian...." and I have seen her 'signature' under her avatar I still hadn't regarded her as being an atheist.

More like one of many who believe that a person's religion doesn't/shouldn't be the determining factor whether a person does what's right or not. Seeing people hide behind a religion or using a religion as a front or seeing some in church but forgetting to walk in HIS footsteps after church is let out...well, can definitely make a person callous toward religion as a whole. I'm not saying that's the case with her...I don't know her like that.

After hearing too many preachers judge wrongly...."look around you. See who is not here. You will then see who is not faithful in the word of God"....I no longer attend congregational church in any building. I don't think a christian or any other should have to voice that they are...it should be evident by how they live and relate to others.

Darn you. Now I have to go eat some. party.gif It's dark chocolate with hazelnuts so it's DEFINITELY healthy.

Now I REALLY want chocolate, so much so that I'm drawn to that premium brand dark chocolate baking bar I have in my pantry. Can't let my DH see me eating those or he'll help himself to my baking stash from now on. Now... maybe if I eat IN the pantry with the door closed, too bad there's no lock.

Ooooooohhhhhhh that so rocks, yeah I mean if someone orders one from me, I'm all over it. But if I just make one as a white pasty faced Christian that might not go over. I asked an Asian friend of mine and she agreed that the older generation might not get it kwim.

But that is way cool.

He's such a happy, make you smile when you see him sculpture. Perfect for cake. But not for eating it either. I don't know, too controversial within my own head. icon_biggrin.gif

thanks

Me too and nothing wrong if she is either but she never said she was that I ever read. Dude, at a minimum she's a seeker if she's read the book six times.

wow what happened here....I'm just here for the cake pics and stumbled across this...I'm getting outta here


to follow up on the original topic.....I'm a legal home baker and I would not turn someone in unless I knew they were baking in an unsanitary environment

No, Never caught. Don't sell either
post #114 of 177
I don't bake for anyone but my family and friends, so I can't be turned in, but I wouldn't turn in someone who was doing it either unless it was unsanitary or dangerous in some way.

Having said that, someone asked what makes it okay for that to be illegal and not report them while you turn around and report something else that is illegal. I don't know about you, but I see lots of illegal things I don't report. I don't call the cops with the license plate of every person I see speeding or do a rolling stop. When I lived in Utah, I didn't turn in my neighbor if they didn't have their sidewalk shoveled fast enough for city ordinances. I don't go do a citizens arrest when someone jaywalks. So yes, there are plenty of times that I don't report something illegal. We're not talking about a drug deal going down.

And for the record, yes I think people should make the effort to become legal and then they don't have to worry about it, but if you're going around turning in all the bakeries because it's illegal, but letting other illegal things pass, I would have to question your motives. (and the you and your in this is not directed at any specific person)

"Maybe the Cake Central atheists can make their own Facebook group so you can go talk smack about all of us delusional people who pray to imaginary deities. Buh-bye! "

Well, Cakepro, that's just typical. I guess those of us who are atheists or agnostics or any other religion or faith that is different from yours are not welcome on Cake Central and that we just need to take our heathen ways and get out. Very nice.

You don't have to be a Christian to make moral decisions. When people constantly point out to everyone that being a Christian is why they have the ability to make moral decisions, it tacitly implies that people who aren't Christians don't have the same capacity to do so. As a non-Christian, I can tell you that message gets really old. If you don't want to make non-Christians defensive, stop suggesting that you "own" the moral high ground.

Me neither. I took her signature as her being a smarty pants. I personally think it's hysterical and I'm mad she used it first.

Heck I broke those laws this week!

And that is why members of other faiths tends to get annoyed and respond. I don't see people of other faiths doing it and it isn't even the majority of Christians but those who do have a tendency to be vocal about it.

You can say all you want that you weren't trying to imply anything but it's how it comes off that matters. It isn't like this site is a Christian site or that everyone here believes in your brand of religion.

If all us evil atheists were trying to attack religion we would enter every prayer request thread to cause trouble but I don't see that happening.
