the supreme court has handed down its decision in acontroversial case involving a bakery that refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple in colorado. moving on to the supreme court. the supreme court has ended down its decision in a case involving a bakery that refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple in colorado. the story has to do with charlie craig and david, the gay couple that wanted to get married. they went to masterpiece cake in denver. the owner denied the mechanic because of his religious beliefs and how he opposes same-sex marriage. this case went through appeals and finally ended up in the supreme court. so essentially the supreme court sided with the bakery however this is not to set precedent for future cases involving businesses that deny services to same-sex couples. this case is very specific. the details are very specific in the supreme court made it clear the ruling really impacts this specific case. normally when the supreme court rules on something it is precedent that affects the entire area of law. in this case they specifically said it does not. this ruling on this particular case based on what colorado did in regards to their state ruling ñ it’s not to say that you can’t discriminate against gays in america, colorado, or anywhere else.
it is like denying blacks a seat at the diner. those parts are clear, it is only about this case and you theoretically cannot discriminate against any americans. the problem is there is a confusing part. it is a part ana just read. you can’t discriminate against sincere religious beliefs because it also goes against the constitution. those things are going to be in conflict a lot. what they had an issue with was that the state of colorado appeared to be quite hostile toward the baker and his religious beliefs. by being hostile you are doing something unconstitutional. that was their ruling at least. let me give you more. the majority ruling essentially said ñ there wasn’t a neutral reaction or treatment. it was too hostile toward the religion. then also does it make any sense. it is a tough case and i’m not saying in a knee-jerk way that the liberal position is the correct one. because i take the constitution very seriously. the problem is a lot of people have sincere religious beliefs that will discriminate against others. we can’t allow the discrimination, but is also in the constitution. i don’t blame the supreme court for punting because it is nearly impossible to thread that needle, but they have to make a decision and this wasn’t it. just to say we are going to rule the colorado case but don’t let it apprise anything else ñ everything else is still in a state of flux and confusion as to what they can enforce. let me be clear, and i think the speaker in particular is sincere. he also does not allow ñ big cakes that have alcohol in it. or big cakes related to halloween. he closes shop on sunday, so he is definitely sincere. i don’t even think this is a case where he hates gay people. the guy also hates halloween. he really believes that whether you agree with him or not.
it also has slavery in the bible and in almost all the religious text. that was also a sincerely held religious belief in america that blacks were inferior and there is a whole story about how one particular guy in the bible was darker and that is why it was okay ñ and slavery is clearly allowed in the bible. that is why it was okay to enslave black people. that was believed by a majority of people in america. that is what led to slavery. colorado talked about that ñ but that was true. that is where i have an issue because i agree that elected officials the government cannot be hostile to religion. but in this case i feel like it was so subjective because the arguments that were made in the lower courts in favor of the gay couple ñ yes, they mentioned interracial marriage and things like that and how you can’t discriminate based on your religion against interracial married couples. but that is a fact. so how do you make those arguments without coming off hostile to a particular religion. it is easy for me to say this because i am agnostic but your religion whether you are christian jewish or muslim is hostile to gay people. it is also hostile to shrimp eaters but you ignore that part. the mormon church did not allow for black clergy and actively discriminated against black americans until 1978. i was a sincerely held religious belief. they thought black people were not the same as white people. but that was a sincerely held religious belief. were we supposed to say separate water fountains in utah? my answer is making sure that every american has equal protection under the law is more important than saying every tenant of your religion including the ones that are discriminatory must be enforced by the government. we cannot discriminate between the religions. so you can’t say muslims don’t like gays so we are going to allow that.
you can’t do that. so you can’t discriminate between mormons, muslims, christians, agnostics etc. it would be unconstitutional. but if your religion demands that you not treat people equally then sorry we live in a secular country. so as long as we are not discriminating between religions i think we are allowed to say no equal protection under the law. unfortunately this case in quite yet there. and i’m sure that similar situations will come up in the future. this is why it is so important to keep in mind who you are electing as president because neil goresuch joy in the majority opinion on this case. now let’s get to a fun component of the story. donald trump junior did not like the way the headlines were written in regard to this story. even though the outcome was something he was in favor of. he tweeted the following. the way the headlines are and indicate that this is a narrow decision. what they mean by narrow decision is not there was a tiebreaker in the supreme court. a means that this particular ruling applies to this very specific case. i went to law school so i know what a narrow decision means. donald trump junior of course didn’t go to law school. is it too much to ask for you to read the article before you tweet? you obviously don’t know what narrow means in this context. didn’t bother to find out ñ very trumpian of you. you can tell in his must-have that he didn’t bother reading it. just take two minutes to read the article so you don’t look like an idiot. to me the thing that stands out is something that is common among the trump supporters, everyone in the trump administration. even when they get what they want they are ready to pounce. you won, this is a ruling that you are in favor of. nope. you have to get triggered and you always have to be the victim.
