    Disingenuous oversimplification. Its not just the baking of a cake, it is not just some baked cake, one that was already for sale off the shelf...it is a special cake, a wedding cake that has, for many if not most, religious significance.

    dogs good > gays evil

    marrying a dog is cute and funny and NOT a smudge on the utmost holy sanctity of religious marriage to always be taken seriously and nobody else has a right to this word

    same sex marriage is the devils work and totally offensive even though it has nothing to do with religion

    I wonder what other religions consider homosexuality a sin besides Christianity and Islam? I'm no expert, so I dont know but if it's considered a sin, that would be a religious belief...and thus not even relevant to the law.

    Edit: again, as mentioned earlier, it depends somewhat (before court challenges) on if sexual orientation is protected in CO.

    No...he just made sure his message was clear. Go forth...and sin no more.
