Supreme Court Reverses Masterpiece Cakeshop, Ltd. v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission
Scotusblog ^ | 6/4/2018 | Scotusblog

Posted on 06/04/2018 7:17:18 AM PDT by CFW

"Whatever the confluence of speech and free exercise principles might be in some cases, the Colorado Civil Rights Commission's consideration of this case was inconsistent with the State's obligation of religious neutrality. The reason and motive for the baker's refusal were based on his sincere religious beliefs and convictions."

Roberts, Breyer, Alito, Kagan, and Gorsuch join Kennedy’s opinion; Kagan concurs, joined by Breyer; Gorsuch concurs, joined by Alito. Thomas concurs in part and in the judgment.

Ginsburg dissents, joined by Sotomayor. So it’s 7-2.

Woo Hoo! Finally.......freedom of religion is one of the reasons this country was created! The Left has had it’s way in ALL things, for way too long. Respecting all LAWS is important, not just the laws you like.

Looking at SCOTUS blog a narrow ruling. The majority decision was the so called Civil Rights Commission was biased against people of faith. The court did not decide if the state has the ability to force the baker to make the cake.

Kagan??? I know. I haven't read the decision but it will probably be an interesting one. It's 59 pages long.

Son to be 8-1. The constitution was written in plain language at the time where a simple farmer could understand the meaning. So now we’re overeducated idiots who can’t read at all.

Great news. Should be made into breaking news. Religious freedom still exists—barely.
