'We,' NOM? So which one of you lives in Colorado, exactly?

by Jeremy Hooper

"We" Coloradans are opposed to civil unions, says the Washington D.C.–based National Organization For Marriage:

And don't even get me started on that bakery that NOM mentions in this astroturfed blast. This supposed "right" to not bake a cake does not have the first thing to do with marriage or civil unions. Cakes are not dependent on marriage laws. It's not about how many tiers, how many flowers, or what purpose the pastry is for. This, the matter of conducting pastry-based commerce, has everything to do with nondiscrimination laws, not marriage. If a baker wants to reject a gay couple, it matters because of the fact that the baker is denying a certain kind of customer on the basis of sexual orientation, not marital plans.
