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.

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