The Supreme Court re The justices did not add any cases to their merits docket. This post was updated at 2: At the end of over an hour of debate, it became clear that, at least in one respect, the case is just like so many others: The dispute before the Supreme Court today dates back towhen Charlie Craig and David Mullins went to Masterpiece Cakeshop, a Denver-area bakery, to order a special cake to celebrate their upcoming marriage.
But Jack Phillips, the owner of the bakery, refused to make them a cake.
They told Phillips that, if he decided to create cakes for opposite-sex weddings, he would also have to create them for same-sex weddings. Under Colorado law, Roberts suggested, the group would face an unpalatable set of choices: It could either stop providing any legal services at all or it could provide services that include same-sex marriage.
He was concerned that, according to the state, another baker could decline to create cakes opposing same-sex marriage, but Phillips could not refuse to make a cake celebrating a same-sex marriage.
Sotomayor was also worried that a ruling for Masterpiece would not only violate the dignity of same-sex couples, but could also cause real hardships.
Most military bases, she noted, are in isolated parts of the United States, many of which are predominantly Christian. That means, she said, that there might only be one or two bakers to provide cakes for same-sex weddings — and a couple could be out of luck if all the available bakers cite religious beliefs as a reason to refuse to make a cake.
Justice Elena Kagan led the charge, asking Waggoner whether a hairstylist or a make-up artist could cite his religious beliefs as the basis to refuse to provide services for a same-sex wedding.
When Waggoner responded that they could not, Kagan pushed back. The make-up artist is an artist, she stressed, and could feel the same way about his craft as Phillips does.
Alito joined the fray with what seemed to be a softball question for Waggoner, asking her whether architectural designs would be protected even though people live in the buildings for which they serve as the basis.
Waggoner said that they would not be, which seemed to surprise Breyer.
So a masterpiece by Michelangelo would not be protected, but a cake without any message on it would be, he asked? With Kennedy seemingly holding the key vote, the couple and their supporters at first seemed to have reason to be optimistic.
Discussing the impact that a ruling for the baker could have for gays and lesbians, Kennedy told Solicitor General Noel Francisco, who argued on behalf of the United States in support of Masterpiece Cakeshop, that if the baker were to win, he could put up a sign indicating that he would not bake cakes for same-sex couples.
