A baker in Colorado who refused on religious grounds to make a cake for a same-sex wedding lost his appeal before the state's Civil Rights Commission.

Mark Joseph Stern of Slate and Matthew Schmitz of First Things debate these questions, while also finding a few points of agreement. The full debate can be seen on Bloggingheads.tv.
