Yet another Alliance Defending Freedom defendant all like, 'but, but—you said we're the victims!'

by Jeremy Hooper

Once again, a judge is telling the far right's fake "victims" what we all told them long ago: that you can't just discriminate against gay couples because you and your personal faith beliefs feel like it. The ACLU brings the good word:

A Colorado judge today determined that the Masterpiece CakeShop unlawfully discriminated against [a same-sex couple] by refusing to sell them a wedding cake.

David Mullins and Charlie Craig visited Masterpiece Cakeshop last year, with Craig's mother, to order a cake for their upcoming wedding reception. Mullins and Craig planned to marry in Massachusetts and then celebrate with family and friends back home in Colorado. Masterpiece owner Jack Phillips informed them that because of his religious beliefs the store’s policy was to deny service to customers who wished to order baked goods to celebrate a same-sex couple’s wedding.

Longstanding Colorado state law prohibits public accommodations, including businesses such as Masterpiece Cakeshop, from refusing service based on factors such as race, sex, marital status or sexual orientation. Mullins and Craig filed complaints with the Colorado Civil Rights Division (CCRD) contending that Masterpiece had violated this law. Earlier this year, the CCRD ruled that Phillips illegally discriminated against Mullins and Craig. Today’s decision from Judge Robert N. Spencer of the Colorado Office of Administrative Courts affirms that finding.

Let these anti-LGBT legal groups dupe you at your own professional peril, discriminatory vendors.
