Hinshaw's LGBTQ Affinity Network presents “Can LGBTQ People Have their Cake and Eat it,Too? What the Supreme Court REALLY said.” The presentation will take a closer look at Masterpiece Cakeshop, Ltd. v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, a pivotal case from earlier this month in which the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the perspective of supporting same-sex marriage against the perspective of supporting religious liberty and ultimately sided with the Colorado baker who refused to make a cake for a same-sex couple’s wedding. The Court decided 7-2 that a Colorado Civil Rights Commission ruling against Jack Phillips violated his First Amendment “free exercise” rights. The Supreme Court’s opinion was by no means a wide-ranging ruling on religious liberty. As in many cases, the devil’s in the details and Vincent Rizzo will explain why as he examines this case during the presentation.
