DENVER (Christian Examiner) – A Lakewood, Colo., baker who refused to bake a cake for a gay wedding because same-sex marriage violated his religious beliefs will not have his case heard before the Colorado Supreme Court.
Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, was found guilty by the Colorado Civil Rights Commission of having discriminated against Charlie Craig and David Mullins in 2012 when the two planned to wed in Massachusetts, but then hold a post-wedding celebration in Colorado. They asked Phillips’ shop to bake a cake, but he refused.
That refusal led to a court case in which Colorado Judge Robert Spencer ordered the baker in 2013 to “cease and desist” discrimination against same-sex couples, an act he said was illegal under state law.
