The Supreme Court today ruled for a Colorado baker who refused to create a wedding cake for a gay couple, The Washington Post reports. In an opinion by Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, the court held that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission had not adequately considered the religious beliefs of baker Jack Phillips. Kennedy said the commission had been hostile to the baker’s faith, denying him the neutral consideration he deserved. Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor dissented.
