CWN Editor's Note: In a 7-2 decision, the US Supreme Court has ruled in favor of a Colorado baker who declined to provide a wedding cake for a same-sex couple. The court ruled that the Colorado civil-rights commission had violated the religious freedom of Jack Phillips, the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, by punishing him for discrimination. In the majority opinion, Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote that the commission did not give “full and fair consideration to his religious objection.” The decision said that “religious and philosophical objections to gay marriage are protected views,” but did not specify the limits of that protection.
