It is a matter of record and an uncontested fact that the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood did not refuse to serve the two gay customers who entered his bakery in 2012.  He gladly opened his doors and sold any displayed baked goods to all customers, including birthday cakes and special occasion creations. He did not care and did not inquire about any customer’s sexual identity, race or religious faith.
