Person goes into bakery, asks for a white cake with white frosting. Baker refuses to make cake based on something the customer says. This though is too vague. If the customer came in calling the owner racial epitaphs, or threatening bodily harm, then 100% the owner can refuse to make a cake. So it does depend on WHAT the customer said. This customer, rather then ordering the cake and being happy in it's promised delivery. Chose to tell the owner, whom they knew would be angry, something the owner has stated he was very much against, due to religious reasons. Customer did NOT have tell the owner the purpose to receive the cake. Customer did so to purposefully trigger the owner, and start a lawsuit. That they wanted 100000 dollars as damages. If the customer had asked for specific writing on the cake that was offensive to the owner, I could see that being a reason to refuse also. I'd tend to agree with the current judgment though. The owner did not have a good enough reason to refuse to make the cake. So he was fined $500. And I agree with the judge that the defendant should get nothing.
