Justice Department files friend-of-the-court brief in support of Colorado bakery owner in case to be heard by Supreme Court

Quote:
WASHINGTON—The Trump administration told the Supreme Court Thursday that the First Amendment entitles a Colorado baker to turn away gay couples seeking wedding cakes, despite state law prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation.

While businesses that sell off-the-shelf goods may be bound by antidiscrimination laws, those that make custom products, like the Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood, Colo., could be exempt if...

ME! I care about religious freedom and many others like me do also.
No Muslim baker should have to decorate a menorah cake and no Christian baker should have to decorate a gay wedding cake if they feel it contributes to something they consider a sin or an abomination to what ever god one worships.

Sad!  We just had a major hurricane and another one is on its way.  Little Kim is developing missiles that will head our way and Putin Fu#ked with our election and all you are concerned about is stupid cakes and spreading fake news about the former 1st lady.  You are really stupid.

Then they shouldn't have applied for a business license from an agency representing ALL the citizens of Lakewood if they intended to discriminate against a subset of citizens.

If you think it is about cakes, then maybe that explains why you see it as such a minor issue.

And Lakewood shouldn't have conditioned licensing of a business upon a requirement that abridges the religious freedom of business owners.

Did she request any of them to dress her.  That is not how it works.  When dressing the 1st lady, the designers request to dress them, not the other way around.  It is good advertising for their fashions.  The ones that refused to dress her, did not make any requests to do so.

They refused in advance and they don't have a Constitutional reason for doing so.... the Constitution protects religious freedom.
