The Christian baker who was ordered on Friday by the Colorado Civil Rights Commission to bake wedding cakes for same-sex ceremonies has responded by eliminating wedding cakes entirely. Here’s the story from CBS in Denver:

The owner of a bakery in Lakewood said he will no longer sell wedding cakes after the Colorado Civil Rights Commission ruled he did discriminate against a gay couple when he refused to sell them a cake. …

A judge previously ruled a business owner cannot refuse service to a customer on the basis of sexual orientation. Phillips appealed to the commission, but it upheld the decision.

That prompted Phillips to decide he would no longer make any wedding cakes. He said he would be fine selling cupcakes for a birthday party for someone who is gay but added, “I don’t want to participate in a same-sex wedding.”

Response: It will be interesting to see if there is any kind of legal response to the baker’s decision.  This should end the dispute since I don’t see how the government could force him to continue to make wedding cakes. As it stands he is giving up a lucrative part of his business for his faith.             *Top
