Gay couple has a contract with a baker to make their SSM wedding cake.  The day before their wedding gay couple is watching the news and see their baker at a rally protesting against SSM.  Does the couple have a right to cancel their contract without paying?

Their baker's actions have no bearing on their contract.

Ok, your title indicates the baker refused to make a cake. The content of your post says the couple now believes the baker is anti gay and they don't want him/her to make their cake. So which one is it?

Unfortunantely no.  If the couple told him/her what kind of cake it was or what it was for and he/she agreed then thats that.  Unless he refuses at the last minute or screwed your cake up on purpose then you have to pay.

it would depend on the terms of the contract.  If the baker had in his contract that the order could be cancelled by the customer 24 hours prior to the event then yes they can cancel their contract.  If it stated it needed more time they either pay and take the cake or pay and don't take the cake.

she is indicating it is a spin off of another post with that title or one similar.  I don't think the content of her post was unclear.    

Quoting finnbar:

I wonder why the baker would agree to make a cake for a ssm wedding if me didn't believe in ssm. Sort of hypocritical to me.
