Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Colorado Baker Who Refused to Bake Cake for Same Sex Couple

The United States Supreme Court has overturned a lower court ruling and handed a victory to the owner of a Colorado bakery that refused to bake a cake for a same sex couple’s wedding.

From The Denver Post:

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Monday that a Colorado baker had the legal right to refuse to make a wedding cake for a gay couple because of his own religious objections to same-sex marriage.

The landmark 7-2 decision in favor of Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood, all but guarantees that business owners now will have a larger legal shield to run their companies in the mold of whatever faith they follow.

But it also sets the stage for new clashes with the civil rights movement, which opposed Phillips’ argument on the grounds it would legally bless corporate discrimination against same-sex couples and give cover to other forms of prejudice based on religion.

This is a victory for liberty in regards to the 1st Amendment. A government cannot put a gun to a business owners head and demand that he/she bake a cake.

Yes, this opens up a lot of potential for a slippery slope when it comes to issues like race, but this one particular case came down to religious beliefs. We will further investigate the ruling and provide an update once we have a firm understanding of the details.
