Nancy Pelosi not happy about Supreme Court ruling on Colorado baker not making gay wedding cake
Nancy Pelosi is not happy about yesterday’s Supreme Court ruling on the Colorado baker not making gay wedding cake. Pelosi says it was a “wrongheaded decision.”
Full statement from Pelosi below
“The Masterpiece Cakeshop case is about the most fundamental right of all Americans: to be free from persecution and discrimination because of who they are or whom they love. While narrowly framed to apply to the decision-making process undertaken by the state commission, today’s wrongheaded decision fails to uphold equality in this case.
“Masterpiece Cakeshop is a commercial bakery open to the public, and such services clearly must be made available to the public on equal terms as determined by an independent review by the Colorado Court of Appeals which should have been upheld. No business or organization open to the public should hide their discriminatory practices behind the guise of religious liberty.
“Our nation’s story is one of ever-expanding freedoms and progress toward a future of equal, full rights for all. To carry forth that progress, the Congress must immediately move to pass the Equality Act, to remove all doubt that sexual orientation and gender identity warrant fundamental civil rights protections in the workplace and in every place. Democrats will never stop fighting for every American’s right to full equality and equal justice under the law.”
The Colorado baker that refused to make the gay wedding cake Jack Phillips — who owns Masterpiece Cakeshop in the city of Lakewood — had refused to bake the couple’s wedding cake due to his religious beliefs against gay marriage.
“It was a big win for us and now we’re just looking forward to hopefully getting back into the wedding business, and we’ll see how the court ruling affects that,” Phillips said.
he ruling was referred to as a narrow opinion because of it’s scope. Justice Kennedy assures the Left it can grouse away. This ruling, in grudging accommodation of religious conviction, will not necessarily bear on the outcome “of some future controversy involving facts similar to these.”
Nancy Pelosi probably needs something to take the light off her week last week when President Trump started calling her MS-13 lover Pelosi. Now this week she has perhaps a new name. Gay wedding cake lover Pelosi. No I think I like the MS-13 lover label better.
