Charlie Craig and Greg Mullins were denied a wedding cake because they were gay.  Jack Phillips, owner of a bakery in Colorado refused the business of the couple last summer.  Luckily for us all, a civil court just found this idiot guilty of discrimination because he violated Colorado’s anti-discrimination law when he refused to bake the cake.

Here is what Greg Mullins had to say to KDVR Friday.  “Being denied service by Masterpiece Cakeshop was offensive and dehumanizing especially in the midst of arranging what should be a joyful family celebration.  We are grateful to have the support of our community and our state, and we hope that today’s decision will help ensure that no one else will experience this kind of discrimination again in Colorado.”.

The bigot (Phillips) told Denver’s KDVR that his religious belief prevented him from serving the couple.  He used the “religious liberty” argument in court and his attorney tried to use First Amendment as well.  Last July, Phillips said “I am a follower of Jesus Christ.  So you could say it’s a religious belief. I believe the Bible teaches [same-sex marriage is] not an OK thing.”.  REALLY? What else does the bible teach you?! Anything about being a decent person maybe? Go get an education! You KNOW that anyone using this excuse is either gay themselves or they are hiding some SERIOUS skeletons in their closet.

So the best part of this story is what the judge said when ruling that this was indeed discrimination.  Judge Robert Spencer of the Colorado Office of Administrative Courts announced the decision Friday.  He said because the Jack Phillips, who owns Masterpiece Cakeshop, previously made cakes for the wedding of two dogs, his claims that a wedding between two men contradicted his religious beliefs didn’t hold up.   LOVES IT!!

Just another example of idiots using religion to fuel their bigotry.  So transparent and obvious.
