The Supreme Court has ruled in favor of a Colorado baker who refused to bake a cake for a gay wedding over religious reasons. In a landmark 7-2 ruling (Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor against), the Court found that the decision by Jack Philips of Masterpiece Cakeshop to refuse the same-sex couple’s request is protected under the first amendment.
In 2012 gay fiancés David Mullins and Charlie Craig asked Philips to create a custom cake for their wedding. Philips, who does not make cakes for Halloween, adult parties, anti-American messages or themes which he has religious objections to, refused.
Good, I’m glad.
I personally do not give a rat’s ass about who marries who, it ain’t none of my business and it doesn’t affect my life one bit. That’s just me.
My biggest objection to this whole deal, like many of you, is that if the baker refused, why didn’t they just go to another shop? Why force their lifestyle on somebody who quietly objected to it? As soon as they filed suit, it affected that baker’s life and that’s just flat out wrong.
