    I agree that the parents' request for the full name (if they in fact did) was just asking for it. But the store should have just made the cake without fuss. They certainly have the right to refuse service, but it would have been in everyone's interest to just make it.

    Those poor babies.

    I wish them the best as they labor through life under the stupidity that their parents have set upon them.

    If the Eucharist was like that, I might actually go to church on occasion-especially if I could wash it all down with a grail full of wine.

    The surest way to make sure that their ideology never takes hold is to allow them free reign, within their constitutional rights, to freely express their idiocy.

    It won't take long for most people to conclude that they're a few chromosomes short of a full strand of DNA.

    And that'd be good for us all including them.

    Imagine how liberating it would be for them to stop hating three quarters of humanity for absolutely no reason at all.

    And it would certainly be reassuring to the the remaining three quarters of us that a small, but rabid, group of nuts weren't out to exterminate us.

    I don't know, refusing the service might actually increase their business...

    Tsk, My grandfather had the subtlety and tact to make Adolf my uncle's middle name. (seriously)

By asking for his full name the parents were just begging for attention, IMO.
    I did note that.

    There's no reason to put the full name on the cake, so it seems like someone was pushing for a confrontation.

    It does sort of amuse me to think they'll be singing, "Happy birthday, Adolf Hitleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeer! Happy birthday to you!"

    I think the thing that gets me when I see stories like this is that the parents each found someone with an equal degree of craziness to marry.

    What is it, like a dollar for a tube of writing icing?

    I'll have you know that pink is very manly. Jokes aside, it entirely depends on socialization, so it doesn't represent the kids leanings at all.

    Eh, I don't see the big deal either way it could play out. Just feel sorry for the kids. Genetically, I mean, not so much for their names. You can change that.
