Birthday cake request for 3-year-old Hitler namesake denied by supermarket
1 hour, 17 minutes ago
By The Associated Press


EASTON, Pa. - The father of 3-year-old Adolf Hitler Campbell, denied a birthday cake with the child's full name on it by one New Jersey supermarket, is asking for a little tolerance.

Heath Campbell and his wife, Deborah, are upset not only with the decision made by the Greenwich ShopRite, but with an outpouring of angry Internet postings in response to a local newspaper article over the weekend on their flare-up over frosting.

"I think people need to take their heads out of the cloud they've been in and start focusing on the future and not on the past," Heath Campbell said Tuesday in an interview conducted in Easton, on the other side of the Delaware River from where the family lives in Hunterdon County, N.J.

"There's a new president and he says it's time for a change; well, then it's time for a change," the 35-year-old continued. "They need to accept a name. A name's a name. The kid isn't going to grow up and do what (Hitler) did."

Deborah Campbell, 25, said she phoned in her order last week to the ShopRite. When she told the bakery department she wanted her son's name spelled out, she was told to talk to a supervisor, who denied the request.

I think it's clear that these people are dispicable human beings, but I find it ridiculous of the store to refuse to make the cake.

Art, I thought you were all about personal freedoms...? Why shouldn't the store be free to not make the cake?

I didn't say they shouldn't be. And clearly they are. Saying it's ridiculous that they wouldn't do it isn't the same as saying they should be forced to do it.

I also think it's ridiculous that these people would name their kid Adolf Hiter, but I absolutely think they should be allowed to.

Of course they should be allowed to, but they are also allowed to be turned down(refused) by a bakery when asking to put their kids name on a cake.

Personally:
parents = :-t
bakery = ;-D

If you want to mince words down to their finite meanings then yes, you didn't say that. But everyone who reads your statement, "I find it ridiculous of the store to refuse to make the cake" is going to get that you think they should have.

Well, I do think they should have, so I suppose it's good if people think that after reading my post. I guess I don't understand what we're arguing about here.

I think bakeries should be free to make or not make any cakes they want as they see fit.

I think bakeries should make any cake that a customer wants (with a few very extreme exceptions that would have to go far beyond the request that this article is talking about).

I dont' see how those two statements are in conflict.

A touch of irony in the story regarding parents who have the temerity to name their son Adolph Hitler and their daughter Aryan Nation - had these parents actually lived in Hitler's Nazi Germany, they would not have even had children since he had a policy of mandatory sterilization of the feeble minded. I pity these 2 kids having to grow up with these asinine names! These parents definitely don't have both oars in the water.
