Friday, 9 News in Lakewood, Colorado reported a story about how hundreds of people turned out to support Masterpiece Cakeshop owner, Jack Phillips and the news created a buzz around the country.

Jack Phillips was recently sued by a gay couple for refusing to make their wedding cake; Phillips lost the case in court because of a state law that prohibits businesses “from refusing service based on race, sex, marital status or sexual orientation,” according to ABC News . He was ordered to "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples who need a wedding cake.

After hearing about the case on a local radio station Friday morning, hundreds of people showed up to show their support for Jack Phillips by making donations and placing orders at the cake shop. Jack Phillips said that it was a story policy not to provide baked goods for a same-sex wedding, and he stated that his own religious beliefs play into his decision.

Friday, many of his supporters stated that they believe Jack Phillips should be able to refuse service because of his own religious beliefs.

Recently, the TV show “What Would You Do?” aired an episode that dealt with the exact same issue at a bakery. To see a clip of the show and watch people’s response to the baker, click here.
