Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Religious Liberty Case

Religious liberty still exists in America!

Moments ago, the Supreme Court made a monumental decision regarding the free exercise of religion in America.

Masterpiece Cakeshop is a bakery run by Jack Phillips in Colorado. Phillips is a pious Christian man who refused to design a cake for a same-sex wedding ceremony due to his strongly held beliefs.

His potential customers, rather than patronize another bakery in the area, quite literally made a federal case out of the snub and took Phillips to court.

Now the Supreme Court has rendered a verdict in the case of whether or not a Christian baker has to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding ceremony.

SCOTUSblog, an influential group blog covering the Supreme Court, just broke the big news:

Politico has more details:

The Supreme Court has ruled in favor of a Christian baker in Colorado who refused to make a custom cake for a same-sex couple, but the court punted on spelling out how far the government can go to prevent sexual-orientation discrimination in the marketplace.

Writing for the court’s majority, Justice Anthony Kennedy said the Colorado Civil Rights Commission violated the baker’s rights by showing “hostility” to his religious beliefs in a proceeding in which he was found to have violated the law and was ordered to anti-discrimination training.

Ever since the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage  in 2015, we knew this fight was coming. Emboldened by the legal victory, the liberal lobby was pushing hard to force Christian businesses to accept gay marriage an unquestioned good.

This ruling restores balance to a point where everyone should be happy: Not only do homosexual individuals maintain the right to marry, religious individuals, including orthodox Christians, Jews, and Muslims, maintain the right to practice their faith in public life without violating their conscience.

In December, we reported that the Supreme Court was leaning towards upholding the religious liberty of Jack Phillips.

Thanks to President Trump appointing an ardent conservative Supreme Court justice to the bench, the right to uphold your religious values in your business was upheld.
