I hate this. These stupid gay fascists have won in the courts again, violating the First Amendment of Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, who refused to make a wedding cake for this gay couple:
CBS DENVER – In the Colorado Court of Appeals case Charlie Craig v. Masterpiece Cakeshop, the court ruled in favor of a gay couple in the battle over a wedding cake Thursday morning.
A Lakewood baker refused to make a cake for the couple’s wedding in 2012, saying it was against his religious beliefs. The couple sued the owner Jack Phillips, and a court found that he did violate the law preventing businesses from discrimination based on sexual orientation.
Phillips tried to appeal the order, arguing that it violated his First Amendment rights.
The couple challenged that refusal, and the Colorado Court of Appeals upheld the original lower court’s ruling in favor of the couple.
Statement From Jack Phillips:
“Today’s ruling means that Colorado citizens have a First Amendment right to believe whatever they want and if those citizens hold the government approved views on same-sex marriage, like Azucar bakery, they are entitled to act on those beliefs without fear of punishment. But for citizens like Jack Phillips, the court has created a novel exception to the First Amendment –you’re entitled to believe, but not entitled to act on those beliefs. You’re not free if your beliefs are confined to your mind. What makes America unique is our freedom to peacefully live out these beliefs. We are evaluating next steps.”
I really hope they appeal this to the Colorado Supreme Court.
