The Secret Ingredient

This from WNPR News:

The Supreme Court has agreed to take up a case on whether the owner of a Colorado cake shop can refuse to provide service to same-sex couples due to his religious beliefs about marriage…

The Colorado Civil Rights Commission sided with Mullins and Craig. It said that if Phillips is creating custom wedding cakes for heterosexual couples, he must do the same for gay couples. The Colorado Court of Appeals also ruled in favor of the couple.

Phillips argues that he is happy to sell baked goods to gay customers. “He simply believes that only marriage between a man and a woman should be celebrated,” his lawyers wrote in the petition asking the court to take the case. “Thus, he declined to create custom art for a specific event because of the message it communicated, not because of the persons requesting it.”

Forget about the Supreme Court. If I were Mullins and Craig I’d give some thought to the message communicated. One relatively mild possibility: “No extra charge for the snot.”
