Religion saves judgmental baker from going to jail
If one would need a solid proof that religion does save people from trouble, this could be it.
A Colorado baker, who refused to make wedding cake for a gay couple, is no longer going to jail, thanks to his religion.
Reuters reported yesterday afternoon that the US Supreme Court favored Christian baker Jack Phillips over a case filed against him by Colorado Civil Rights Commission — which earlier ruled that the baker’s refusal to make a wedding cake for a gay couple is a violation of anti-discrimination laws.
“The Supreme Court 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,” the report showed.
“In doing so, the commission violated his religious rights under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution,” it added.
Of the 50 states in the United States, 21, including Colorado, have anti-discrimination laws protecting gay people.
