WASHINGTON, D.C — (06-17-19) — The U.S. Supreme Court declined on Monday to hear the LGBTQ Wedding Cake case in Oregon. The Oregon Supreme court ruled against bakers who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple.
Thanks to the justices decision not to hear the high-profile case, the story will continue as it now goes back to the Oregon Supreme Court for reconsideration.
SCOTUS ordered state judges to take a new look at the dispute between the the lesbian couple and the owners of a now-closed bakery that was based in the Portland area at the time of the discrimination.
Supreme Court Rejects Oregon Baker who refused service to Lesbian Couple
AP reported…”The high court’s brief order directs appellate judges in Oregon to consider last term’s Supreme Court ruling in favor of a baker from Colorado who would not make a cake for a same-sex wedding.”
“The court ruled that baker Jack Phillips was subjected to anti-religious bias in the Colorado Civil Rights Commission’s determination that he violated state anti-discrimination in refusing to bake the couple’s wedding cake. The Oregon appellate ruling came before the court’s decision in Phillips’ case.”
Everyone continues to dance around the issue that eventually will have to be discussed! LGBTQ rights versus religious objections based on their own anti-LGBTQ views while using religion as an excuse for their bigotry.
This isn’t over as another case involving a florist from Washington state who would not create flower arrangements for a same-sex wedding, is already on its way to the Supreme Court for consideration.
