Colorado-based grooms Charlie Craig and David Mullins chose Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver to make a wedding cake to celebrate their marriage with friends and family (they were legally married in Massachusetts) in 2012. Instead of treating them to a cake tasting, the baker rejected the order due to the couple’s sexual orientation. A lawsuit was filed against the baker and a Colorado judge ruled last week that the bakery’s actions were discriminatory. Sadly, this isn’t the first time we’ve heard of incidents like this happening to same-sex couples planning their weddings, but this ruling is a step in the right direction.
