Actor Patrick Stewart is supporting the free speech rights of Christian bakers from northern Ireland who declined to decorate a cake with a pro-gay-marriage message.
An Irish court fined the owners of Ashers Bakery £500 for not writing the slogan "Support Gay Marriage" on a cake.
The bakery owners say they're happy to bake a cake for anyone, but reserve the right to decline messages that are contrary to their religious beliefs.
Stewart, who is known for his roles in "Star Trek" and "X-Men," told BBC "Newsnight" that no one should be forced to write things they disagree with.
Gay activists have been attacking Stewart for his comments....
