    Jimminey's bakery department at Shop Rite refused to decorate a birthday cake for a 3 year old child by the name of Adolph Hitler . This has made the NEWS nationally and internationally . The parents are crying discrimination . Their other two daughters have unusual tasteless names as well .
    I'd like to get your thoughts

    The parents should be drawn and quartered, but the child deserves a birthday cake. It isn't his fault his parents are idiots.

    Some of the names I see make me want to slap the parents over and over. Do they not realize that this is not just some cute little thing they are going to call their child at home?? These poor little things have to go to school!

    This really pushes my buttons

    Yes, my heart goes out to the children, and perhaps they can change their names when they get older.

    Until then the child is being penalized for the parents stupidity.

    I am all for knowing that we all have our biases and are going to raise our kids to believe things we believe.

    But to put your kids at such a disadvantage as to teach them how to be racist and give them names that will brand them as such for life - that is just cruel.

    Shop Rite offered to do the cake with Happy Birthday Adolph or leave it blank, but not write Adolph Hitler . They are standing by their decision .
    I also agree that these parents are idiots . It infuriates me that the father collects SS due to emphysema . Pleazzzzzz, my husband has emphysema and a couple weeks back had a respiratory therapist coming to the house, he was so bad . His wife also collects SS for a bad back . BooHoo And of course now, they are going to file a lawsuit .
    Do you think Shop Rite was wrong ? I personally don't , but you ...

    Not only do I not think that Shop Rite was wrong it looks like there may be some changes coming at Walmart too.

    Oh, thats good news for Shop Rite .
    Jim feels terrible for that poor little boy . He made a good point where was his 1st or 2 nd year cake done or NOT , now he's 3 and they decide they want to have his full birth name done on the cake ?
