The Supreme Court handed down some crucial rulings and made the decision to hear two huge cases Monday before going to summer recess.
A Christian baker will get his day in court this fall when the Supreme Court is back in session. Jack Phillips, the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood, Colorado, declined to make a cake for a gay couple’s wedding reception and lost the resulting case when they sued him for discrimination. While other Christian bakers have gone to court, this will be the first case to make it all the way to the highest court in the land.
Glenn Beck broke down the big rulings from this week on Tuesday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program.”
“You may have to participate in compelled speech,” Glenn explained the high stakes for the Colorado baker’s religious freedom case.
The court ruled 7-2 that churches can’t be blocked from obtaining public grant resources, deciding in favor of Trinity Lutheran Church of Columbia, a Missouri church trying to be part of a state scrap-rubber program. The church runs a preschool and wanted to use the recycled rubber to resurface its playground.
Another important decision from Monday was a ruling in favor of gay or lesbian couples who want both of their names on a child’s birth certificate, even though they are not both biologically involved.
The justices also made a big decision ahead of the fall – in October, they will hear the case for President Donald Trump’s travel ban. In the meantime, a revised and limited version of the ban will remain in place.
