On Wednesday night, Stephen Colbert took some time to meditate on the Masterpiece Cakeshop vs. Colorado case, in which the Supreme Court must decide whether baker Jack Phillips refusal to bake a cake for a gay couple’s wedding genuinely conflicts with his religious beliefs.

“Usually it’s a lot happier news when you hear a story about getting baked in Colorado,” Colbert quips.

In order to shed some light on the complicated issue, Colbert invited a so-called “anti-gay baker” named Daniel St. John Daniels onto the show.

The supposed baker claims he was fired from Carvel for refusing to use the letters “LGBTQ,” which became truly problematic whenever he was asked to make a “Fudgie the Whale” cake.

However, he insists that he excels at making a cake featuring Pikachu saying “Sodomy is a sin.”

Oh, and he has a boyfriend, because love is love.
