A baker in suburban Denver must make cakes for same-sex weddings or face fines, according to a judge’s ruling last week.
Judge Robert N. Spencer denied the bakery owner’s claim that he was exercising his freedoms of religion and speech when he told a gay couple he would not make their wedding cake. Spencer instead ordered him to “cease and desist from discriminating” or face fines ranging from $50 to $500 per person per incident, according to the bakery owner’s attorney.
