If you’re going to sell wedding cakes in U.S.A, you have to sell them to everyone who comes to your shop. You can’t pick and decide among clients based upon your faith that some weddings are immoral.
That’s the standard that administrative law Judge Spencer reinforced with his current ruling that the wedding cake vendor of a Cake shop in Lakewood must vend wedding cakes to gay couple. It’s their basic right.
Cake-vendor refused to vend a wedding cake to two gay men, and has been in conflict since that his religious protest to same-sex marriage provides him with a constitutional immunity to the state’s community accommodation law.
He also argues that selling such a cake would break his right to open expression, as it would amount, in his vision, to an support of same-sex marriage.

Masterpiece Cake shop is a marketable venture, not a religious institution, even if Phillips believes he honors God through his artistic hard work in cake beautification.
It’s not as if a baker is essentially obliged to go behind a customer’s every request. As the judge distinguished, Phillips’ attorney hoisted the specter of a black baker being required "to make a cake bearing a white supremacist message for a member of the Aryan Nation" and an Islamic baker being required "to make a cake condescending the Koran for the Westbrook Baptist Church."
But as Spencer responded, the problem with that line of argument is that the gay couple’s order never got to the phase of discussing what would be on the cake. At that point a baker’s "free talking right to refuse" might kick in, depending on the nature of the demand.
Instead, Phillips announced preemptively that "I just don’t make cakes for same-sex weddings. the judge told that.
It is not unusual for merchants to deal with people whose values or behavior they condemn of. If you’re in business, though, you have a duty to sell your goods to all.
