WH: Trump Backs Religious Liberty as SCOTUS Hears Wedding Cake Case
By Todd Beamon

President Donald Trump "certainly" supports religious liberty — and he would support the Colorado baker who is at the center of the wedding cake case that is pending before the Supreme Court.

"The president certainly supports religious liberty," White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters. "That's something that he talked about during the campaign and since upheld and since taking office."

The Supreme Court heard arguments Tuesday in the case of baker Jack Phillips, who refused to prepare a cake for the wedding of a gay couple in 2012.

The Trump administration supports Phillips in his argument he cannot be forced to create a cake that violates his religious beliefs.

Justice Anthony Kennedy voiced competing concerns in the case, including whether a ruling in Phillips' favor would allow merchants to post signs saying, for instance, "We do not bake cakes for gay weddings."

However, Kennedy also said the Colorado Civil Rights Commission seemed "neither tolerant nor respectful of Mr. Phillips' religious beliefs" when it found his decision violated the state's anti-discrimination law.

When a reporter asked Sanders whether Trump's support of religious liberty could lead shop owners to post signs saying they would not bake cakes for gay couples, she responded: "That would include that."

It's not "religious freedom". It's giving the right to discriminate.

There are currently three female socialists on the nine man U.S. Supreme Court. Otherwise, common sense would dictate we can make your cake but we can't show two males or two women, or a harem of women ontop the cake.
"we are Christians" in the case under discussion here. Such a sign would allow the unorthodox to decide whether they want to do business with disgusting bigots who refuse to violate everything they stand for in a land that allows you to worship God or God G_d or Allah or Buddha in the church temple mosque of your choice and to live in peace, accordingly, under the laws of the United States of America.

Otherwise, common sense would dictate we can make your MARRIAGE CAKE but we can't show two males or two women, or a harem of women ontop the cake. Or we'll get a reputation in town for LGBT's where to go for their marriage cake. We pride ourselves on being a legitimate business that respects COMMUNITY STANDARDS.

I've been refused business in Boston's China Town. The Chines-American was selling fresh fruit on display, on the street, outside his store. I told him what nice looking oranges. The Proprietor, I guess, told me he only sells to "CHINESE"!

That's what the man said "only to Chinese." Not Chinese-Americans. The Asian man said "I only sell to Chinese." Blew my mind. I stood there startled with an orange in my hand. I couldn't believe it. I believe it now. The war in Vietnam had ended. No matter!

I think what he actually said now that I look back on it 40 years later "I sell to Chinese." I immediately got the message and put the orange back on the cart outside the store.
Ten years later, I was hiking alone in the mountains above Hollywood, in the foothills above Glendale and saw an orange being cooled in a natural spring in the hills . ."Moses struck the rock with his staff, and water gushed forth for the people to drink...He made water to gush forward from the rock." I stared fascinated at the orange. Picked it up, peeled it, and ate it. Like Alice in Wonderland "eat me". It was really good. "I'd do it again."

This reminds me of a funny story. I knew an American in Honolulu named Park. He had called about an ad for an apartment for rent. He asked if the apartment was still available, and he was asked what his name was. He said 'Park' and there was a pause. Then he was asked if he was Korean. (Park is a common Korean name.) "No", he replied. "No, the apartment isn't available", he was told.
