Worthy Christian News » Christian Baker Ordered to Create Wedding Cakes for a Same-Sex 'Wedding'

(WND / Worthy News)– The Colorado Civil Rights Division is telling a Lakewood, Colorado, baker he must violate his faith and create "wedding" cakes for same-sex duos, even though the state doesn't recognize such unions.

The ruling came Friday from the state agency board in a dispute between Jack Phillips, a Christian baker who runs Masterpiece bakery, and two homosexuals for whom he declined to create a cake back in 2012.

Colorado's constitution doesn't recognize "same-sex marriage," and attorneys representing Phillips said the decision is a step too far.

"The government … seek[s] to impose a new belief system upon Jack [Phillips], one that is fundamentally at odds with his conscience and his liberty," explained a legal filing from attorneys with the Alliance Defending Freedom representing Phillips and his Masterpiece Cakes in Lakewood.
