SNL Takes on the 'Religious Refusals' Argument — Hilariously

SNL Sketch

Vanessa Bayer stars as a small-town baker who refuses to make a cake for a gay couple's wedding — or to say, "God is gay."

Saturday Night Live last night hilariously took on the "religious freedom" argument against providing services to LGBT people, with a sketch featuring Vanessa Bayer as a baker who refuses to make a wedding cake for a gay couple -- and is taken to court, where she tries to prove definitively that God is not gay.

The sketch takes the form of a trailer for a film about the baker, Beth Walsh -- billed as coming from the same studio that produced Angel in Denim: The Kim DavisStory. Watch below.

Trudy Ring

Trudy Ring is The Advocate’s senior politics editor and copy chief. She has been a reporter and editor for daily newspapers and LGBTQ+ weeklies/monthlies, trade magazines, and reference books. She is a political junkie who thinks even the wonkiest details are fascinating, and she always loves to see political candidates who are groundbreaking in some way. She enjoys writing about other topics as well, including religion (she’s interested in what people believe and why), literature, theater, and film. Trudy is a proud “old movie weirdo” and loves the Hollywood films of the 1930s and ’40s above all others. Other interests include classic rock music (Bruce Springsteen rules!) and history. Oh, and she was a Jeopardy! contestant back in 1998 and won two games. Not up there with Amy Schneider, but Trudy still takes pride in this achievement.
