Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Constitution

Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Constitution

We've seen this before.  And it is seen again in Colorado.  I guess it is like the first amendment only counts if you toe the party line.  Fortunately, the Supreme Court interpreted the Constitution correctly.

I think it is a perfect thing to point out that part of this does hinge upon a state law.  I don't think that one's pursuit of happiness needs to be coerced out of another.

"In a major decision affecting LGBTQ rights, the U.S. Supreme Court on Friday carved out a significant exception to public accommodations laws--laws that in most states bar discrimination based on sexual orientation.

"By a 6-to-3 vote, the court sided with Lorie Smith, a Colorado web designer who is opposed to same sex marriage. She challenged the state's public accommodations law, claiming that by requiring her to serve everyone equally, the state was unconstitutionally enlisting her in creating a message she opposes."
