Gay activists protest the Masterpiece Cakeshop in 2012. Owner Jack Phillips now faces charges for not baking a cake for the gay couple. (Free Republic)
Gay marriage was banned by the Colorado constitution in 2006. But this didnt stop the Colorado Attorney Generals office from filing a discrimination complaint against Masterpiece Cakeshop for not baking a cake for a gay couple.
The Advocate reported:
A Denver bakery that refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple is about to face the legal heat.
The Colorado Attorney Generals office last week filed a discrimination complaint against the owners of Masterpiece Cakeshop, who last year declined to make a cake for Denver couple Dave Mullins and Charlie Craig, the Associated Press reports. The couple had their marriage ceremony in Massachusetts and wanted the cake for a hometown celebration with family and friends.

I thought they were saying that gay marriage didn’t represent a threat to civil liberties? I suppose that basic freedom to exercise one’s conscience is soon to be no more.
What? They couldn’t find another baker? B.S.
He should have just baked the damn cake, with a secret ingredient in the icing.
I’d make the crappiest bland tasting cake I could.
That needs to be loudly stated in this case -
of COURSE they could have found another baker.
They intentionally targeted this Christian baker for punishment, through the State, for his/her beliefs.
Sounds like it might be time for Coloradites to recall their attorney general.
I’d make the most expensive cake I could.....”laid up for the righteous” you know....
Followed by public addresses of the prosecutor, all lgovt officials involved in the prosecution, license plates, etc.
It’s time to play liberal as liberals do.
OMG!! I HATE what OBAMA and Democrats have done to this country....HATE IT!!!
I would use real crap for the crapiest cake I could make.
Should have made them a Chocolate Bunt Cake with white Icing around the middle.
Freedom OF Assembly also means Freedom FROM Assembly. No two people should be forced to assemble or associate against their will. The First Amendment also prohibits Congress or the States from prohibiting the free exercise of religion.
It doesn't matter if there were not another baker in the entire state. Religious freedom is religious freedom.
Why dont the fags start their own bakery???
Stupid verdict for a stupid case. Gays should not be able to marry at all! may all of Colorado be turned like Sodom and Gomorrah!
“Should have made them a Chocolate Bunt Cake “
Better still, a Butt Cake! Something these guys could really relate to!
When liberals discriminate, its called freedom of choice. When conservatives do it, its discrimination.
