A Colorado judge ruled Friday against a bakery owner who refused to prepare a cake for a gay couple's wedding reception.
A bakery owner who refused to prepare a wedding cake for a gay couple heads to court Wednesday in a case closely watched for its implications on religious freedom in a society that increasingly embraces same-sex marriage.
Disaffected Coloradans have launched a third recall effort, this time against a Democratic legislator whose seat could determine the balance of power in the state Senate.
Former Rep. Tom Tancredo announced Thursday he will seek the 2014 Republican nomination for Colorado governor, a day after Gov. John Hickenlooper granted a reprieve to a notorious Death Row inmate.
Mr. Boyles, who has championed the bakery's cause even though he supports gay marriage, said the case should alarm anyone concerned about government's ability to control expression.
"It's about the government telling you what you're supposed to feel and believe. It doesn't have anything to do with gay or straight," said Mr. Boyles on Thursday's program. "This is about this man's right to say no, and what comes from that. This is what political correctness, authoritarianism is all about."
