Gay marriage cake: customer takes case to European court
By Bob Fredericks. The Supreme Court ruled Friday that gay and lesbian couples have the same right to marry as any other American in a landmark decision that settled one of the most contentious social issues in US history. Celebrations and joyful weddings quickly followed around the country, including in some of the 14 states where they had been banned before the decision. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage.
One does not have to be a homophobe or bigot to believe that the Supreme Court made a tragic error today in creating out of thin air an imaginary right for gay marriage. After all, if gay marriage is a civil right, then anyone who opposes it is guilty of a civil rights violation. We have already seen bakeries, florists, and wedding chapels sued and, in some cases, put out of business because of their refusal to participate in gay wedding ceremonies. Expect these suits to accelerate exponentially now that progressives have been emboldened and armed with a Supreme Court decision.
