David Mullins and Charlie Craig went to Massachusetts to get married and wanted to celebrate with a traditional cake.
But when they went to a shop to pick one out they were told thanks, but no thanks.
Owners of the Masterpiece Cake shop in Denver cited their religious beliefs as the reason they declined the business.
Nicolle Martin is the attorney for shop co-owner Jack Phillips, she says this is very simple. "We don't believe this is a case about commerce," she says. "This is a case about conscience."
But Mullins told the AP "I felt dehumanized and mortified," and the men brought a law suit claiming other gay couples had also been turned away.
The lawsuit was filed on behalf of the couple by the ACLU saying “someone's personal religious beliefs don't justify breaking the law by discriminating against others in the public sphere."
Martin believes the case could have huge implications nationwide and serve as a base for similar situations.
“It brings it to the forefront. I just don’t think that we should heighten one person’s beliefs over and above another person’s beliefs,” she noted.
