The owner of a Colorado bakery said in spite of picket lines and online petitions he will not change a store policy against baking wedding cakes for homosexual couples a policy that critics call hateful and bigoted.
More than 4,200 people have signed an online petition calling on the Masterpiece Cake Shop to ends its policy banning gay wedding cakes. Over the weekend, several dozen people picketed the privately-owned store in Lakewood, Colo.
Jack Phillips, the owner of the cake shop, said his ban on making cakes for gay weddings is a result of his religious beliefs.
Im not going to change my business because of a petition, he told the Denver Post. Im just going to do the best I can do to honor Jesus Christ.

Homosexuality makes one look for love in all the wrong places.
Does it also mean that one's irony gene is recessive? What is more hateful and bigoted than attempting to bring financial ruin to someone because their beliefs differ?
He will bake birthday cakes for anyone, so he’s not a bigot. He simply will not take part in the ungodly ritual homosexual call “marriages,” but God and most states do not.
How is this any different than the brown-shirts harassing Jewish shop owners in the 30’s?
I sure wish I lived there.
Wonder how the AMWAY boycott is working out? LOL
One wonders if they’ll ship cookies by mail.
He just needs to BAKE THE CAKE, leave out the sugar, add extra baking soda, and charge them double. Why make a fuss?
I was thinking the same thing.
But, actually one step further...OMG, it is starting.
With an open and free marketplace people can make choices. It isn’t like this guy is the only shop in town.

“How is this any different than the brown-shirts harassing Jewish shop owners in the 30’s?”
A bit different; this crop of intimidators likes black clothing with white lettering instead of brown shirts. (Some of them were running around town during the 2008 Presidential campaign, as if they were celebrating the second coming.)
Very disquieting sight.
"STOP HOMOSEXUAL TERROISM AGAINST NORMAL PEOPLE"
Dunno about cookies but...
Anybody else feel like sending a cake or FRew to the VA?
You don't like my opinion OK, I don't have to like yours either. I am so tired of the media, calling me intolerant and hateful because I disapprove of an unnatural destructive behavior.
I disapprove of drug use, does that make me intolerant of potheads? is that hate speech?
If people would let their own morals judge how they spent money, everything would work out just fine. You want to support only black, female, lesbian owned business then do so. Personally I will spend a little more to support Christian owned shops.
I do not have homophobia. Phobia= fear. I am not afraid of homos, in fact just the opposite, I fear for them.
So will I.
