U.S. Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Christian Baker in Landmark Case

Date:

Today, the landmark Supreme Court case involving Jack Phillips, the devout, Colorado Christian baker who refused to create a custom wedding cake for a same-sex couple in 2012, has been decided in Mr. Phillips’ favor.

According to Mr. Phillips in his opinion piece in the Washington Post, “It’s really quite simple: I serve everyone, but I can’t create custom cakes that express messages or celebrate events in conflict with my faith. That is why I told the gentlemen who are suing me that, even though I couldn’t design a custom cake to celebrate their same-sex marriage, I’d be happy to sell them anything else in my shop or create a cake for them for another occasion.”

A key part of the Supreme Court’s decision, “The government, consistent with the Constitution’s guarantee of free exercise, cannot impose regulations that are hostile to the religious beliefs of affected citizens and cannot act in a manner that passes judgment upon or presupposes the illegitimacy of religious beliefs and practices.”
