Jimmy Kimmel used a skit on his late night talk show “Jimmy Kimmel Live” to explain why he thinks refusing to serve a customer because of religious beliefs is wrong.
A recent court decision from Kern County, California ruled in favor of a bakery owner that refused to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple because it went again the owner’s Christian faith.
Kimmel took the reasoning behind that ruling and applied it in a skit where he plays a waiter in a restaurant. He refuses a signature salad to a lesbian customer because of the chef’s beliefs.
“Our salad chef today is Tony and he believes homosexuality is a sin, so he won’t be creating any of our salads for you,” Kimmel says.
“You know what? I’m not gay. I’ll order you the salad,” another patron at the table suggests.
“Oh no, you can’t do that. You can’t order for her,” Kimmel says. “Well our owner Patricia is a Wiccan priestess and she won’t allow men to order for women. She says it perpetuates the patriarchy.”
