Reader: Every one has equal rights to sugar!

On Friday, a judge determined that

Masterpiece Cakeshop

owner Jack Phillips was wrong to refuse to bake a

wedding cake for a gay couple

because same-sex marriage would "be displeasing God." But refusing the couple service was displeasing to civil rights laws. Colorado state law prohibits "a place of public accommodation" -- which includes bakeries, Judge Robert Spencer determined in his ruling -- from discriminating against a person based on his or her sexual orientation.

Says Taylor:

Gay couples should have the right to a diabetic life like everyone else.
