A Denver bakery recently won the right to refuse to bake a cake with an anti-gay message, prompting one famous Colorado conservative columnist to ask if it’s a double standard.
The dispute arose a year ago, when local resident William Jack asked Denver’s Azucar Bakery to bake several cakes, each depicting a Bible and decorated with biblical verses condemning homosexuality. The bakery refused, and Jack filed a civil rights complaint.
Michelle Malkin saw something fishy about the decision and tweeted:
Just in: CO Civil Rights agency rules bakery can refuse anti-gay cake, but it's discrimination to refuse pro-gay cake http://t.co/DyVazDCgTW

According to the Denver ABC affiliate:
Last week, the Colorado Civil Rights Division ruled that Denver’s Azucar Bakery did not discriminate against William Jack, a Christian from Castle Rock, by refusing to make two cakes with anti-gay messages and imagery that he requested last year.
Last year, the Colorado Civil Rights Division ruled that another bakery, Masterpiece Cake Shop in Lakewood, could not refuse to make a wedding cake for a gay couple, calling it discriminatory.
Malkin’s fans agreed.

@michellemalkin Gotta love the those petty socialist bureaucrats. The cake handbook is going to pretty large.

Sounds like the Colorado Civil Rights Division should review its old decisions before announcing new ones. Maybe they just want to have their cake and eat it too.
