Gay marriage was banned by the Colorado constitution in 2006.
But this didn’t stop the Colorado Attorney General’s office from filing a discrimination complaint against Masterpiece Cakeshop for not baking a cake for a gay couple.

In July 2013 the Colorado Attorney General’s office filed a discrimination complaint against the owners of Masterpiece Cakeshop, who last year declined to make a cake for Denver couple Dave Mullins and Charlie Craig, the Associated Press reports.

In December 2013 a judge ruled against the bakery owner. Judge Robert Spencer ordered Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver, to accommodate sex-couples or face fines and other possible penalties.

Now this…
The Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies determined last week that a Denver bakery did nothing wrong when it refused to write anti-gay words on a cake.

Cn you taste the double-standard!
