Colorado Bakery Supports LGBTQ Equality, Refuses to Make Anti-Gay Cake [VIDEO]
We’re usually telling you about equality-minded wedding bakers who are actively submitting their weddings to us of LGBTQ couples or homophobic businesses flat out refusing it. But this is a new type of headline we’re delighted to report on!
A Colorado bakery refused to write an inflammatory anti-gay message on a cake and the customer promptly filed a complaint against it.
Owner Marjorie Silva of Azucar Bakery in Denver, Colorado, said a customer asked for a Bible-shaped cake with the words “God hates gays” written on it. The customer canceled the order, then filed a religious discrimination complaint.
“It’s unfair that he’s accusing me of discriminating when I think he was the one that is discriminating,” Silva told NBC affiliate KUSA.

Let’s show her and the world we believe in standing up for what’s right. We need more Marjorie Silvas. What do you think of this story? Weigh in below with your comments.
