Owner of bakery stands up for his beliefs, no matter what the cost to his business:
The owner of a Colorado bakery has been accused of violating the civil rights of a gay couple after he refused to bake their wedding cake — and now gay rights advocates are calling for a boycott.
Jack Phillips, owner of the Masterpiece Cake Shop in Lakewood, Colo., said he has received more than 1,000 angry messages — critics upset because he would not compromise his personal beliefs and bake a cake for Dave Mullins and Charlie Craig.
“If gays come in and want to order birthday cakes or any cakes for any occasion, graduations, or whatever, I have no prejudice against that whatsoever,” Phillips told the television station. “It’s just the wedding cake, not the people, not their lifestyle.”
Meanwhile, the Democratic Party is making moves to add support for same-sex “marriage” to the party platform for 2012:
Democrats are moving, for the first time, to include support for same-sex marriage in the official party platform at their national convention.
The decision comes after President Obama became the first sitting U.S. president to voice support for gay marriage, and as party officials try to build the anticipation ahead of the convention set for early September in Charlotte, N.C.
