Outrageous Ruling: Colorado Bakeries MUST Make ‘Gay’ Cakes, But Can Refuse to Make Christian Cakes

Looks like Bobby Jindal is more right than he knows that Christians are the ones who need legal protections if a new ruling in Colorado is any indication. It seems that authorities in Colorado are now ruling that bakeries MUST bake cakes for gay weddings, but can refuse to make cakes with Bible verses on them.

So, according to the Colorado state government Gays are a protected class and can get anything they want at any time, but Christians aren’t and they can be denied services at will? How does that work in an America that is supposed to have religious freedom?

n a bizarre new twist on the religious liberty front, Colorado officials have determined that bakeries must cater to proponents of gay marriage but are not legally obliged to decorate cakes with Bible verses.

Christian activist Bill Jack has denounced a decision by the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Regulatory Agencies, which found Azucar Bakery in Denver not guilty of discrimination for refusing to bake a cake adorned with Bible quotes condemning sodomy.

Last March, Jack went to Azucar Bakery and requested two cakes to be decorated with biblical messages.

“I requested two cakes, each in the shape of an open Bible. On the first cake I requested on one page, ‘God hates sin — Psalm 45:7,’ and on the facing page, ‘Homosexuality is a detestable sin — Leviticus 18:22,’” Jack said.

Jack also said:

On the second cake I requested on one page, “God loves sinners,” and on the facing page, “While we were yet sinners Christ died for us – Romans 5:8.” I also requested a decoration of two groomsmen holding hands with a cross in the background with a ghostbusters symbol over it to illustrate that such a union is unacceptable biblically.

On Good Friday, the Department of Regulatory Agencies handed down its decision that refusing such a request did not constitute discrimination.

If you’ll remember, only a few days ago Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal said that we have come to a time in the United States of America–the country famously built on freedom of religion–where Christians need legal protections or they face discrimination.
