Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Baker Who Refused to Make Same-Sex Wedding Cake

The ruling is specific to the case of a Colorado bakery's religious freedom argument.

The U.S. Supreme Court has made a ruling — and it came down on the side of religious freedom above marriage equality and protection from discrimination. In its decision on Monday, the Supreme Court ruled that a Colorado bakery could not be forced to bake a cake for a same-sex couple's wedding

The decision came in the form of a 7-2 vote, but only applied to the specific facts of this case — it did not indicate any future requirements for wedding vendors, like other bakers, florists, and business owners who do not support same-sex unions.

 Justice Anthony Kennedy, wrote the decision; he also wrote the court's decision on same-sex marriage.

So while the particular Colorado baker in question is not obligated to make same-sex wedding cakes, there are plenty of bakeries who welcome the business — and even use it as a marketing message.
