This is a 7-2 decision! So surprise, Ginsburg and Sotomayor dissented.
In a landmark ruling Monday, the Supreme Court sided with a Colorado baker who refused to make a custom cake for a same-sex wedding.
In a 7-2 decision written by Justice Anthony Kennedy, the court said the Colorado Civil Rights Commission violated the Free Exercise Clause of the Constitution when it forced Jack Phillips to make a cake for a same-sex wedding he morally opposed under the state’s public accommodations law.
“The laws and the Constitution can, and in some instances must, protect gay persons and gay couples in the exercise of their civil rights, but religious and philosophical objections to gay marriage are protected views in some instances protected forms of expression,” the court said.
