The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday handed a victory to a Colorado baker who refused to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple based on his Christian beliefs. The Colorado Civil Rights Commission had found that baker Jack Phillips violated the state’s anti-discrimination law by rebuffing couple David Mullins and Charlie Craig in 2012. Colorado state law bars businesses from refusing service based on race, sex, marital status or sexual orientation. However, in a 7-2 decision, the Supreme Court justices concluded that the commission violated Phillips’ religious rights under the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment. According to Reuters, the baker’s lawyers said the ruling emphasized that the government must respect religious beliefs.
