Religious Liberty survives to fight another day.
Early on the morning of 4 June 2018, the news reported that the Supreme Court of the United States had issued the opinions from the Justices in the case of Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission. And as you might imagine the chatter has been non-stop all day as both sides, religious conservatives as well as liberal GLBT rights activists, are claiming victory.
The Court ruled 7-2 in favor of the Colorado cake baker, Jack Phillips. However while this appears to be a wide decision, in reality it was narrow as the court reaffirmed the constitutional right of same sex couples to marry, but the part of the ruling being celebrated by religious conservatives, came in the form of the court upholding freedom of religion and speech.
Today, the Supreme Court took an important step in recognizing that the First Amendment remains in force. It also confirmed what I have said for years, namely, that LGBT activism is the principle threat to freedoms of religion, speech, and conscience in America. May the pushback against this extremism continue.
