As Twitchy reported, a California judge this month ruled against a same-sex couple who were suing a bakery owner for refusing to bake them a wedding cake. The judge ruled that forcing the baker to make the cake “would do violence to the essentials of Free Speech guaranteed under the First Amendment.”

Of course, that injustice inspired America’s conscience, Jimmy Kimmel, to address the ruling with a skit on his show. One problem, though: his skit missed the mark entirely, using the analogy of a waiter not serving food to someone just because they are gay.

Fortunately, not only tweeters called out Kimmel for his false analogy; attorney Jeffrey M. Trissell tore apart Kimmel’s skit in a piece at The Daily Caller.

Trissell writes:

On Thursday, February 8, 2018, Jimmy Kimmel performed a four-minute sketch on his television show regarding my law firm’s defense of the religious and free speech rights of Cathy Miller, the owner and operator of Tastries Bakery in Bakersfield, California. Cathy Miller is a devout Christian. She believes that God created marriage as a covenant between one man and one woman, and so she believes it is immoral for her to participate in a same-sex wedding.

As much as Kimmel wants to spin this case to be about discrimination, it just isn’t. When, in “Obergefell v. Hodges,” the Supreme Court made same-sex marriage the law of the land, it went out of its way to talk about and protect people of faith. It made a compromise: Homosexual individuals can get married, but people of faith will also be protected. This compromise was both possible and needed because millions of people believe that marriage should only be between one man and one woman, and millions of people disagree. So it’s perfectly possible for all of us to simply coexist: there are other bakers in Bakersfield.

Definitely read the whole piece (after you’ve finished reading today’s Twitchy posts, of course).

So, Jimmy Kimmel: a moron or a bigot?

By the way, here’s the skit in case you haven’t seen it. See if you can find out what it has to do with compelling a Christian baker to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding:
