Colorado Civil Rights Commission
A suburban Denver baker has appealed an order from the Colorado Civil Rights Commission that requires him to prepare wedding cakes for gay couples.
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.
The governor of Arizona announced that she vetoed a controversial bill that would have pitted religious rights against gay rights. Colorado faced boycotts when it waded into the gay rights issue in the early 1990s.
A Colorado judge says a baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs.
