A bakery near Denver is refusing to make a cake for a same-sex couple. While this is covered by the state’s anti-discrimination laws, it would also be an excellent case for my proposed Anti-Butthead Act. According to the Denver Post,
The shop’s owner, . . . [stated] that he has a strong stance toward the biblical view of marriage between one man and one woman.
I’m wondering if Mr. Phillips checks the Biblical-compliance status of his other customers. Does he ask his one-man/one-woman couples if they’ve had sex before the marriage. Awkward! Adultery and coveting of neighborhood wives? Also awkward! Theft? Does he do a criminal background check? How about honoring mom and dad? He needs to check on that, too, right?
This falls solidly within the black letter of the Anti-Butthead Act’s mandate: “Don’t be a Butthead.” Or, in the words of the colleague from whose Facebook post I blatantly stole this idea, “Just make the fucking cake, you dope!”
