Supreme Court Weighs In On Religious Objections To Serving Gay Customers

A Colorado baker says requiring him to make a cake for a gay wedding would violate his freedom of expression. But the couple he turned down says refusing to serve gay customers is illegal discrimination.

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court will consider who’s right in one of the most closely watched cases of the term, one that pits freedom of religion and expression against marriage equality and protection from discrimination.

Dr. John Corvino, a writer, speaker, and philosophy professor at Wayne State University in Detroit, explains why this case is about much more than cake.
