As you all know, the Supreme Court has agreed to hear an appeal regarding a Christian business owner's refusal to bake a cake for a gay couple. Playing a prominent role in this situation has been the Colorado Commission of Civil Rights and the Colorado Anti-Discrimination Act

Court brief on behalf of Phillips.

I'll borrow the debate question directly from the court case question to be addressed.

1.)Whether applying Colorado’s public accommodations law to compel Phillips to create expression that violates his sincerely held religious beliefs about marriage violates the Free Speech or Free Exercise Clauses of the First Amendment.

As I remember it, you brought up art:

Unless maybe you mean someone else first brought it up?


You brought up the fact that you didn't view it as real art, as though it were a significant detail.
That is why I provided the link.

Examples:
"Baking a cake is really stretching the concept" (of art)

"A cake is merely a cake, nothing more."

"Was the baker asked to bake a cake out of his normal repertoire of cakes? Doesn't seem so."
(this again seems intended to drive a point home that it isn't "real art" and the answer, as noted before: well yes, yes it was...custom made for each individual occasion)

"To me, custom cake decoration is right up there with a custom paint job on a motorcycle tank, i.e., pretty far down on the scale of what's considered art"
