BUSTED: Pastor admits he was lying about Whole Foods cake with anti-gay slur

Published

on

Monday, Pastor Jordan Brown admitted to faking an incident in which he accused a Whole Foods store of adding an anti-gay slur to his cake order, the Austin American-Statesman reports.

Last month, Raw Story reported the news piece about a gay pastor who bought a cake at an Austin, Texas Whole Foods that read “loves wins,” but he received a cake that also said “f*g” below it. Whole Foods was quick to file a counter-suit against the man saying that the cake decorator did not write the anti-gay slur on the cake.

“The company did nothing wrong,” Brown said. “I was wrong to pursue this matter and use the media to perpetuate this story.”

Brown also issued several apologies, saying, in part, “I want to apologize to Whole Foods and its team members for questioning the company’s commitment to its values.”

Whole Foods released a statement saying that the company would also end their counter-suit against the pastor and that they are “very pleased that the truth has come to light.”

“Given Mr. Brown’s apology and public admission that his story was a complete fabrication, we see no reason to move forward with our counter suit to defend the integrity of our brand and team members,” the company said.

Columnist urges Gen. Mattis to save America from Trump before trying to peddle his book

Published

on

Former Defense Secretary James Mattis appeared on "Meet the Press" Sunday to promote his new autobiography, but he refused to indicate whether or not he agrees with the president on the recent decision to allow attacks on Kurdish allies.

In a Washington Post column, opinion writer James Downie noted that Mattis "ducked" each time he was asked where he disagrees with President Donald Trump.

Mattis not only dodged questions about the U.S. and Russia, Mattis said he wouldn't "make political assessments" because the Defense Department stays outside of politics. Mattis is no longer at the Department of Defense, nor is he an active-duty soldier, so it's unclear what his excuse is.
