Skip to comments.Thought Police Force Local Baker to Participate in Gay Wedding. Will They Make Orthodox Rabbis...

The Colorado Civil Rights Commission has ordered a suburban Denver baker named Jack Phillips to make wedding cakes for same-sex couples, finding that his religious objections do not supersede the state's anti-discrimination statutes. Because if the Constitution should be subordinate to anything, it's the local thought police, hurt feelings, and nuptial pastries.
Raju Jaram, one of the reprehensible unelected commissionerswhose contact information is nowhere to be found on Colorado's government siteapparently had this to say about the case: "I can believe anything I want, but if I'm going to do business here, I'd ought to not discriminate against people."
No, you can't. Because Phillips isn't discriminating against gay Coloradans. Gay customers, as far as all the news stories have suggested, are free to shop in the bakery and purchase (at the same price) any of the cakes, cookies, and pastries they like, without ever being asked by anyone whom they love or what the gender equation is in their sex life. Public accommodations, fine. But the fact is that Phillips does not want to participate in a very specific ceremony, because he holds authentic, well-documented, age-old religious objections to such an eventin the same way that a Hasidic Jew or an orthodox Muslim might not want to participate in a ceremony that proclaims that Jesus is our Lord and savior. Maybe if we begin forcing atheists to party plan baptisms, the point would become clearer. Actually, maybe if we begin forcing Orthodox rabbis and imams to perform gay weddings, the point would be even clearer.

He should claim he’s muslim. No dogs, no pigs, no gay anything.
A nasty but cool thought. The baker should make the cake, and then put two plastic naked men on top giving each other a BJ.
He should also have little plastic dildos sticking out of the sides of the cake.
If they wanted a cake, they’re gonna get one and then some.
Complying with fascist laws can be fun if you know how to do it right.
Ping for later
I’d lace the cake with saltpeter as well - goodbye honeymoon!
Since when does an appointed and unelected commission have binding enforcement powers?
This sounds like BS to me.
how about a viagra and ex-lax layer cake ?
Do you want them mounted?No,holding hands will do.
And the devil takes another soul.
i’d make the worst tasting cake ever. just say you were trying to capture what anal rimming/fisting might taste like, in cake/frosting form. you know a cake homage to stuff gays like.
an outer frosting “cake” layer but inside full of veteran kimchee. perfect metaphor for gay marriage right there.
It sucks that good merchants need to suffer the whims of selfish degenerates.
“Homosexual marriage law” is about forcing the citizens to support, service, and sanction homosexual behavior. It’s not about love, but statism.
These people would love to make Orthodox rabbis perform gay weddings—or march them off to the gas chamber. As for imams, they’re too afraid of them to try it.
The Westboro Inbred Church should seek out a gay-owned print shop to make their banners.
See how that one flies
Personally, I’m headed to the nearest Halal Butcher Shop and demanding they grind my pig into sausages!
