This "Yuge" victory just in from the Washington Post:

In major Supreme Court case, Justice Dept. sides with baker who refused to make wedding cake for gay couple.

In a major upcoming Supreme Court case that weighs equal rights with religious liberty, the Trump administration on Thursday sided with a Colorado baker who refused to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple.

The Department of Justice on Thursday filed a brief on behalf of baker Jack Phillips, who was found to have violated the Colorado Anti-Discrimination Act by refusing to created a cake to celebrate the marriage of Charlie Craig and David Mullins in 2012. Phillips said he doesn’t create wedding cakes for same-sex couples because it would violate his religious beliefs.

The government agreed with Phillips that his cakes are a form of expression, and he cannot be compelled to use his talents for something in which he does not believe.

“Forcing Phillips to create expression for and participate in a ceremony that violates his sincerely held religious beliefs invades his First Amendment rights,” Acting Solicitor General Jeffrey B. Wall wrote in the brief.  READ MORE HERE


REMNANT COMMENT: Those who say it's futile to resist may be giving in to a defeatist attitude that makes our Far-Left friends very happy. Let’s face it, the fat lady hasn't quite sung yet---(I suppose that's not a particularly politically correct thing to say anymore. But it’s said now, snowflakes, so here's to all the fat ladies out there who haven't sung yet.  Keep up the good work, girls!) 

So it made absolutely NO DIFFERENCE that Trump beat Frau Clinton in the last election? I have a hunch this Colorado baker might take umbrage with that. Do you blame him? President Hillary's Justice Department would have had Mr. Phillips whipping up brownies in San Quentin by now.
