Well this is a pleasant turn of events. 🙂
The Colorado Civil Rights Division has ruled that a baker who refused to make cakes with anti-gay messages did not discriminate.
Marjorie Silva, owner of Azucar Bakery in Denver, says she got the news on Friday but knows that Bill Jack, a Christian from Castle Rock, Colo., will likely appeal the decision.
“I’m happy that we were not just morally right but legally right,” she said in an interview with Yahoo News. “Hopefully this will lead to a better world where we are friendly to each other.”
In March 2014, Jack asked Silva to make him a Bible-shaped cake with anti-gay messages, such as “Homosexuality is a detestable sin. Leviticus 18:2.” He also wanted the cake to include two men holding hands with a large X over them.
She agreed to make the dessert in the shape of a book but declined to include the hateful content.
