    This is only a ruling on 'courtroom animosity' so don't get all excited.

    Agree but this is going to open up a can of worms as I would think a lot of others will attempt something like this and then say "its my religious belief." We will see tons more cases now.

    Song quote for today
    "MacArthur's Park is melting in the dark
    All the sweet, green icing flowing down
    Someone left the cake out in the rain
    I don't think that I can take it
    'Cause it took too long to bake it
    And I'll never have that recipe again
    Oh, no! "
    MacArther Park- Richard Harris

    Ms. Boop,

    You see, in our judicial system, the courts are arbitrators of legality. In this case, the courts ruled that it is not only legal, but constitutional.

    Hope that helps.

    I would think if the Baker's can truly show they are religious, they won't have to bake the cakes.

    I agree, I think it will extend to other services as well. Which means more cases.

    Supreme Court hands narrow win to baker over gay couple dispute

    Supreme Court hands narrow win to baker over gay couple dispute

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday handed a narrow victory to a Christian baker from Colorado who refused for religious reasons to make a wedding cake for a gay couple.

    The justices, in a 7-2 decision, faulted the Colorado Civil Rights Commission's handling of the claims brought against Jack Phillips, saying it had showed a hostility to religion. In doing so, the commission violated his religious rights under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
    God may have made gay people, but no one has to make a gay wedding cake.
    Thanks from MaryAnne
