Bakery Will Stop Making Wedding Cakes After Losing Discrimination Case

• Daily
 The owner of a bakery in Lakewood said he will no longer sell wedding cakes after the Colorado Civil Rights Commission ruled he did discriminate against a gay couple when he refused to sell them a cake.

Jack Phillips owns Masterpiece Cakeshop. In 2012, David Mullins and Charlie Craig went to the shop to order a cake for their upcoming wedding reception. They planned to marry in Massachusetts and have a reception in Colorado.

Phillips said he doesn't believe in gay marriage and he refused to sell them a cake.

"We would close down the bakery before we would complicate our beliefs," Phillips said after the hearing. Phillips also admitted he had refused service to other same-sex couples.
