Supreme Court Protects Religious Liberty In Cake Case
The Supreme Court voted 7-2 Monday that it is unconstitutional to force a Christian baker to bake a wedding cake for a gay wedding.
The Court upheld religious liberty, dealing a blow to liberals who feel that religious liberty is not important and that Constitutional rights should cede to vogue contemporary mores.
The New York Times was forced to report: “Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, writing for the majority in the 7-2 decision, relied on narrow grounds, saying a state commission had violated the Constitution’s protection of religious freedom in ruling against the baker, Jack Phillips, who had refused to create a custom wedding cake for a gay couple. “The neutral and respectful consideration to which Phillips was entitled was compromised here,” Justice Kennedy wrote. “The Civil Rights Commission’s treatment of his case has some elements of a clear and impermissible hostility toward the sincere religious beliefs that motivated his objection.” The Supreme Court’s decision, which turned on the commission’s asserted hostility to religion, strongly reaffirmed protections for gay rights and left open the possibility that other cases raising similar issues could be decided differently….”
Another win for the Constitution and a loss for people who don’t respect the Constitution.
Donald Trump Jr. pointed out the biased way the mainstream media reported on the decision:
I am reading about a 7 – 2 vote. Pretty sure that's not narrowly… At least 2 dem leaning justices must have agreed. https://t.co/vOjX0mOHPf
