Quotes of the day

A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday.

The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple “because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage.”

The order says the cake-maker must “cease and desist from discriminating” against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay couples who want to buy cakes…

“At first blush, it may seem reasonable that a private business should be able to refuse service to anyone it chooses,” Judge Spencer said in his written order. “This view, however, fails to take into account the cost to society and the hurt caused to persons who are denied service simply because of who they are.”

***

According to the complaint, Phillips told the couple that the store policy was to deny service to customers who wished to order baked goods for a same-sex wedding, based on his religious beliefs.

Phillips told the men, “I’ll make you birthday cakes, shower cakes, sell you cookies and brownies, I just don’t make cakes for same-sex weddings.”…

Nicolle Martin, an attorney for Masterpiece Cakeshop, told The Associated Press that the judge’s decision was “reprehensible” and “antithetical to everything America stands for.”

“He can’t violate his conscience in order to collect a paycheck,” Martin said. “If Jack can’t make wedding cakes, he can’t continue to support his family. And in order to make wedding cakes, Jack must violate his belief system.”

***

In July of 2012 my son and his fiancé invited me to join them at a bakery for a cake tasting and to discuss a design that was recommended by their event planner. What should have been a fun and special moment turned into a day I will never forget. The three of us walked into Masterpiece Cakeshop, and a man at the counter motioned for us to sit at a small table and then joined us. When the man asked whose wedding this was for, and my son said “it is for our wedding,” the man said that he does not make cakes for same- sex couples’ weddings or commitment ceremonies. When my son said “really?” the man tried to justify his stance by saying he will make birthday cakes or other occasion cakes for gays, just not a wedding cake.

I just sat there in disbelief. All of the levity that we felt on the drive to the bakery was gone. As I left that bakery, my heart was breaking for my son and his fiancé. What should have been a joyous occasion had turned into a humiliating occasion…

The decision that Judge Spencer made has renewed my hope that no other couple in Colorado will face discrimination by a business owner based on their sexual orientation. It was never about the cake. It was about my son being treated like a lesser person.

***

There will be no accommodation between gay rights activists and those seeking religious freedom to opt out of the gay rights movement. Gay rights activists demand tolerance for their lifestyle, but will not tolerate those who choose to adhere to their religious beliefs.

Increasingly, courts around the country are siding with the gay rights movement against those relying on the first freedoms of the country. While many would prefer to sit this out, they will be made to care.

Evil preaches tolerance until it is dominate and then it seeks to silence good. We are more and more rapidly arriving at a point in this country where Christians are being forced from the public square unless they abandon the tenets of their faith. In our secular society, Christianity is something you do on a Sunday and who you sleep with defines you.

For Christians defined by their faith, this paradigm of being defined by your sexual preference instead of your faith is deeply troublesome and will see more and more of these stories crop up.

***

But Judge Spencer shot down the constitutional arguments, noting that the Supreme Court has “repeatedly found” that those engaged in commercial activity are subject to state discrimination laws, regardless of their religious beliefs. “Conceptually, [Mr. Phillips's] refusal to serve a same-sex couple due to religious objection to same-sex weddings is no different from refusing to serve a biracial couple because of religious objection to biracial marriage,” wrote Judge Spencer…

Wedding professionals in at least six states have run headlong into state antidiscrimination laws after refusing for religious reasons to bake cakes, arrange flowers or perform other services for same-sex couples.

The issue gained attention in August, when the New Mexico Supreme Court ruled that an Albuquerque photography business violated state antidiscrimination laws after its owners declined to snap photos of a lesbian couple’s commitment ceremony.

***

“If the service or the product is expressive, if it sends a message, and the government says you have to make it, create it, and carry it for someone else, that is forced speech,” Ms. Martin told KNUS-AM talk-show host Peter Boyles.

Ms. Martin also warned that “this is just the first step.”

“If they can make Jack speak someone else’s message when they want it spoken and where they want it spoken, that is a government that we should all fear,” she said…

“It’s about the government telling you what you’re supposed to feel and believe. It doesn’t have anything to do with gay or straight,” said Mr. Boyles on Thursday’s program. “This is about this man’s right to say no, and what comes from that. This is what political correctness, authoritarianism is all about.”

I thought Colorado didn’t allow same sex marriages. Can’t the baker just agree to make cakes for weddings, but not for civil unions? He would, of course, also have to refuse service to any heterosexual couples wanting to celebrate a civil union.

On a related topic, does this mean a gay caterer will be penalized if he doesn’t serve an anti-gay marriage party?

I don’t get why someone would try to force a baker or photographer or whatever who’s uncomfortable with your wedding for any reason to still provide a service. Is a photographer who’s uncomfortable going to really do their best work even if they make an honest effort to do so? I doubt it. This is one of the many times people need to leave the lawyers out of it, deal with their hurt feelings and get on with their lives.

the cake thing is not surprising in one way…we have gotten used to this stuff.

on the other hand, it really is shocking given the nature of cake-making…it is not exactly neurosurgery. Relatedly, Kevin Williamson’s piece at NRO

Doctors, like all licensed professionals, are utterly at the mercy of the state. Obamacare effectively has put the federal government and the states in the insurance business (for the healthy, young, and middle class for the first time), which means that the powers that control physicians’ licensing now have economic interests that are adverse to those of the doctors themselves. It is easy to imagine yet another episode of “fair share” rhetoric being deployed to conscript doctors in trying to make this unworkable mess work. Senator Warren’s totalitarian analysis — that the government has a claim on your property in the present and future because it exerted a claim on the property of others in the past — is entirely applicable here: Ambulances move on public roads, the government supports medical research, etc. You didn’t build that. So here’s your federally mandated portion of money-losing Medicare and Medicaid patients. They won’t call it conscription; they’ll call it shared sacrifice.

so what exactly isn’t in the state’s interest? Cakes to Medicare to renting a room…all in the interests of the state protecting potential victims.

if Sophie were here she’d give us a post on the various prongs of compelling state interest.

This isn’t about particular customers getting a service. This is about power and criminalizing those who don’t agree with a particular agenda. Opposition to the gay agenda is being made socially unacceptable and sometimes criminalized. Young Christians are being made to feel the need to add “but I don’t discriminate or hate” after saying “I’m a Christian.” “Christian” is being equated with “hateful.” This is what a happening in schools and in pop culture.

Gay activists want to punish and destroy anyone who dares express differing opinions.

There’s an easy way around it. Price them out the market. Don’t publish your prices and when they tell you who the wedding is for, come back with a price that is so exorbitant that they would have to be insane to accept it.

Businesses do this all the time for work they’d rather not do, but can still say they offer and it almost always is for other reasons, like ‘I don’t need the work right now’ or ‘we’re busy.’ or ‘I have personal obligations and don’t have time.’

Tight title, loose post. But I thought it was a pretty funny summation, so . . . you know, there.

That cake would sit square behind the pipes of my old flathead while I revved it for 20 minutes, call it Harley chocolate mist.

Is the judge setting the price of the cakes as well..?

Good one, Sparks. The first woman to sing was sort of cute. Hard to tell how hot she is because the quality of the video wasn’t great. Nice song.

Good honest people make the mistake in believing that everyone is like them. That everyone shares the same respect for the beliefs of others that they do. Once you get bit in the ass enough by the world, you start questioning the motives of everyone after awhile. Stay strictly business, don’t trust anyone until you really know them. Refuse work for ‘other reasons.’ They aren’t being honest with you, you owe no honesty in return if you aren’t going to do business with them.
