Supreme Court Rules: Have a slice of freedom cake!

The Supreme Court focused on the Colorado Civil Rights Commission, which essentially railroaded Masterpiece Bakery and its owner Jack Philips. Ok, your slice of freedom might be a bit thin: it is narrow in the sense that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission dismissed Jack Philip's religious beliefs.

Still, the message is courts and states have to balance non-discrimination of gay people with other people's religious beliefs. Expanding rights to certain groups should not mean taking away rights and liberties from other individuals (or at least carefully balancing them when there is a conflict).
