USA, Colorado: Bakery That Denied Service to Gay Couple Loses Case
A Colorado bakery that refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple has lost in court.

Think Progress reports:

Respondents deny that they hold any animus toward homosexuals or gay couples, and would willingly provide other types of baked goods to Complainants or any other gay customer. On the other hand, Respondents would refuse to provide a wedding cake to a heterosexual customer if it was for a same-sex wedding. The ALJ rejects Respondents’ argument as a distinction without a difference. The salient feature distinguishing same-sex weddings from heterosexual ones is the sexual orientation of its participants. Only same-sex couples engage in same-sex weddings. Therefore, it makes little sense to argue that refusal to provide a cake to a same-sex couple for use at their wedding is not “because of” their sexual orientation.


Zack Ford breaks down the ruling nicely - check out the whole article for more details.
