A cakewalk case?

“The Justices seem split — on the ‘gay cake’ case. A Christian baker had no trouble selling a gay couple a pre-made cake, out of his showcase, but balked at selling a custom wedding cake of any kind. According to NPR’s Nina Totenberg, the couple understood that requesting a ‘gay’ themed cake would go too far. But the baker’s refusal to decorate any wedding cake seemed unacceptable. … Colorado went after the baker, the baker hired a lawyer, and Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission was heard by the Supreme Court this week. Commonly billed as a conflict between First Amendment-guaranteed religious freedom and the civil rights of citizens as defined and protected by a state law, it almost defies easy solution.” (12/07/17)
