INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - College students are at odds with a local cookie store after it refused to take an order for a gay organization wanting rainbow-theme treats.

Members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender group at IUPUI wanted the cookies to celebrate National Coming Out Day, which is next month.

They could always inundate the store with attempts to order for a KKK, Nazi Party, Al-quada etc groups, and let the Press know what the answer was! >:-)

Presumably a store that is going out of business.

Obviously they must have a lot of business to just turn away a sale.
