Editorial Of The Day

From the Denver Post editorial board:
If you're going to sell wedding cakes in Colorado, you have to sell them to everyone who comes into your shop. You can't pick and choose among customers based upon your belief that some weddings are immoral. That's the principle that administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer reinforced with his recent ruling that the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood must sell wedding cakes to gay couples. It's the right call — and not even a close one in our view. Masterpiece Cakeshop is a commercial enterprise, not a religious institution, even if Phillips believes he honors God thr0ugh his artistic efforts in cake decoration. It is not unusual for merchants to deal with people whose values or behavior they disapprove of. If you're in business, though, you have a duty to sell your wares to all comers.
