The Supreme Courtroom is presently listening to Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Fee, a case that can in the end resolve if the state violated Colorado baker Jack Phillips’s First Modification rights, after compelling him to bake a cake for a homosexual marriage ceremony. David Mullins and Charlie Craig tried to fee a cake from Phillips in 2012, however he refused to make a cake celebrating homosexual marriage due to his non secular beliefs.
The couple filed a grievance with the Colorado Civil Rights Fee, and Phillips was present in violation of the state’s anti-discrimination legal guidelines. Many appear confused in regards to the significance of the case, and are questioning why the couple simply did not go some place else. It is simply cake! But when the Supreme Courtroom guidelines in Phillips’ favor, it could possibly be a landmark determination that paves the best way for all kinds of companies to discriminate towards homosexual folks, or anybody actually, primarily based on their non secular beliefs—which you gotta admit, are kinda wishy-washy. Additionally straight up bigoted, on this occasion.
That is all fairly critical stuff. However here is a joke we will all recognize:
Cake is homosexual, and everybody is aware of it. And loves it:
It is good to seek out one thing to smile about on this entire scenario.
Whereas folks’s non secular beliefs must be revered, that respect does not imply condoning discrimination. We’ll see if the Supreme Courtroom agrees.
