That discriminatory Colorado baker won't make Halloween cakes either

by Jeremy Hooper

The Alliance Defending Freedom is appealing a recent order from the Colorado Civil Rights Commission saying that baker Jack Phillips can't deny customers based on their sexual orientation. A tipster noted this interesting snippet from that appeal:

First off, I'm pretty sure that a whole lot of people of any faith celebrate Halloween. But more than that, I'm also pretty sure that its practitioners consider Paganism to be a religion. So while I know Phillips and the ADF are including this line to make his discrimination against same-sex couples seems less targeted, some would argue that he is opening himself up to more scrutiny (if not legal action) by holding this public position.
