Jordan Brown, an openly gay pastor at Austin's Church of Open Doors, is now reversing those claims — and dropping a lawsuit he filed against Whole Foods — after the company threatened a countersuit, The New York Times reports.In a statement on Monday, Brown said:
The company did nothing wrong. I was wrong to pursue this matter and use the media to perpetuate this story. I want to apologize to Whole Foods and its team members for questioning the company's commitment to its values, and especially the bakery associate who I understand was put in a terrible position because of my actions.

Lying Pastor that Claimed Whole Foods Put a Slur on a Cake Should Be Fired from the Church of Open Doors
This is the work of a sociopath pure and simple.
He cast aspersions on that company and probably almost got some bakery associate fired for reasons unknown. Did he think Whole Foods would just settle out of court and he would get a big check? Was he trying to promote some strange personal brand against hated Whole Foods? In any case when someone perpetrates fraud like this there should be some sort of consequences. Since it is a church they will probably forgive him but it is still pretty crappy behavior.
