Roberts, Associate Justice Clarence Thomas, and Associate Justice Stephen Breyer.

The Supreme Court has ruled in favor of a Colorado baker who refused to craft a wedding cake in 2012 for a same-gender couple in a 7-2 decision.

Justice Kennedy—who was joined in the majority by Justices Roberts, Thomas, Alito, Kagan, Gorsuch, and Breyer in part—wrote that the “reason and motive for the baker’s refusal were based on his sincere religious beliefs and convictions” and the Colorado Civil Rights Commission was being “inconsistent” with the “obligation of religious neutrality” from the state.

Kennedy also wrote that such “disputes must be resolved with tolerance, without undue disrespect to sincere religious beliefs and without subjecting gay persons to indignities when they seek goods and services in an open market.”

The dissenting opinion, written by Justice Ginsburg and joined by Justice Sotomayor, underscored that Masterpiece Cakeshop refused to sell to the couple “for no reason other than their orientation, a cake of the kind he regularly sold to others.” Read more.

  1. Mainstream Fake News Losers are calling the 7-2 ruling “a narrow ruling”.

    The baker should sue them for all the money he lost throughout these years.

  2. Ginsburg is an evil old wrinkly rodent who can’t kick the bucket quick enough! I could vomit on her.

  3. That sick old self hating Jew will hopefully soon die or quit the bench as she sees she will be overruled every time. What a win for moral and a loss to the haters of God

  4. The headline is misleading: the baker refused to bake a toeiva “wedding” cake, the toeiva couple were not refused service – they could have purchased any other bakery goods, just like any other customers.
