Court: No Right to Biblical Cake

And I agree.

A decision letter from the Division ruled in Silva’s favor. She did not discriminate against Jack because of his religious identity, but because his request included “derogatory language and imagery.” Her standard against such language is consistent across protected classes. “In the same manner [she] would not accept [an order from] anyone wanting to make a discriminatory cake against Christians, [she] will not make one that discriminates against gays,” the decision reads. “The evidence demonstrates that [Silva] would deny such requests to any customer, regardless of creed.”

If two straight men got married, I wouldn't make a same-sex wedding cake, either.

I hope there's an appeal. "Derogatory" is in the eye of the beholder, isn't it?
