Move over Chick-fil-A. There‚Äôs a new business getting heat for its stance on gay marriage. Masterpiece Cake Shop in Lakewood, Colorado, is facing critics who are calling for a boycott after it refused to make a cake for a same-sex couple.
Dave Mullin and Charlie Craig, who went to the shop earlier this month to ask about having a cake made for their wedding, say they dated for two years before getting engaged. After only seconds of entering Masterpiece, they claim that owner Jack Phillips turned them away.
‚ÄúMy first comment was, ‚Äėwe‚Äôre getting married.‚Äô And he kind of just shut that down immediately,‚ÄĚ Craig explained:
This past weekend, protesters started lining up outside of the establishment in an attempt to convince Phillips to reverse course. But ‚ÄĒ he‚Äôs not planning on changing his mind.
