Anti-Gay Group Photoshops Baker Picture to Stir Outrage

Publish date:

The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) posted a picture of a female chef in jail along with a story about owners of a Denver, Colorado bakery who discriminated against a gay wedding.

However, the picture was originally of the female chef holding her hands near her head because of a "headache" and "stress," notes

The original picture can be seen at, which licenses photos.

NOM, which opposes gay marriage, stated the following with the jail "photo" on July 9:

According to attorney Nicolle Martin, the owners of a Colorado bakery could face a year in prison for refusing to make a cake for a gay wedding, Jim Hoft reported at the Gateway Pundit Monday.

“The complainants can sue him civilly in the regular courts system or he can potentially be prosecuted by the district attorney for up to twelve months in jail,” Martin told Hoft.

On their Facebook page, NOM wrote: "A Colorado baker is facing A YEAR in prison for refusing to make a cake for a same-sex wedding. Who will be next?"

However, the reality is the owners of the bakery have not been charged with a crime and are not facing prison.

According to the Associated Press, the Colorado Attorney General's office did file a formal complaint last week against Masterpiece Cakeshop, which refused to make a wedding cake for David Mullins and Charlie Craig.

Mullins and Craig wanted the cake to celebrate their wedding in Colorado after they got married in Massachusetts. The case is scheduled for a hearing in September before Colorado's Civil Rights Commission.

The complaint seeks to force Masterpiece Cakeshop to "cease and desist" the practice of discriminating against gay couples.

The bakery owners claim they were right not to make the cake as it would compromise their Christian religious beliefs.
