The Southern Evangelical Seminary’s Richard Land has come to the defense of a Colorado baker who made headlines by refusing to make a wedding cake for a pair of gay grooms-to-be.
As Good As You blogger Jeremy Hooper originally reported, Land blasted the Colorado Civil Rights Commission’s May 30 decision to uphold a December 2013 ruling which found that Masterpiece Cakeshop owner Jack Phillips had discriminated against Dave Mullins and Charlie Craig when he denied their request for a wedding cake in 2012.
“This baker did not refuse to serve these people. He offered them his services – he just did not want to provide his services as part of a gay wedding ceremony,” Land said in a Family Research Council radio show broadcast this week. “This would be like going to a bakery owned by an African-American, and saying, ‘By the way, you have to bake a cake for a KKK induction ceremony, under penalty of law.’”
