Court Confirms That Possibility of “Discrimination” Now Trumps Precious Liberties Protected by First Amendment

It doesn’t matter how our leftist ruling class wraps the package. Tyranny is tyranny:

A suburban Denver baker who wouldn’t make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple cannot cite his religious beliefs in refusing them service because it would lead to discrimination, the Colorado Court of Appeals ruled Thursday. …

Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, declined to make a cake for Charlie Craig and David Mullins in 2012. They were married in Massachusetts but planned to celebrate in Colorado.

After the ruling, Phillips faces fines if he refuses to make wedding cakes for gay couples. Phillips has maintained that he has no problem serving gay people at his store but says that making a wedding cake for a same-sex wedding would violate his Christian beliefs.

The core purpose of the gay “rights” blitzkrieg is to repress those very Christian beliefs.

Phillips isn’t alone:

In recent cases elsewhere, a bakery in the Portland, Oregon, area that declined to make a wedding cake for a gay couple two years ago was ordered to pay $135,000 in damages in July.

Two years ago, the New Mexico Supreme Court ruled that a photographer who wouldn’t take pictures of a gay couple’s 2006 commitment ceremony violated the state’s anti-discrimination law.

And in Washington state, a florist has been fighting a lawsuit filed after she refused to provide services for a gay wedding in 2013.

Given that the Supreme Court recently imposed the blasphemous travesty of homosexual marriage on all 50 states, what will happen to cases like this that are appealed to the top is a forgone conclusion.
