Big Supreme Court ruling for Baker just out!

Aaaaaaaaaaaand we’ve got a real Supreme Court again!
Freedom of association restored in America!
But faggots BTFO either way.
The Supreme Court on Monday ruled in favor of a Colorado baker who had refused to create a wedding cake for a gay couple. The court’s decision was narrow, and it left open the larger question of whether a business can discriminate against gay men and lesbians based on rights protected by the First Amendment.
The court passed on an opportunity to either bolster the right to same-sex marriage or explain how far the government can go in regulating businesses run on religious principles. Instead, Justice Anthony M. Kennedy’s majority opinion turned on the argument that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission, which originally ruled against the baker, had been shown to be hostile to religion because of the remarks of one of its members.
At the same time, Justice Kennedy strongly reaffirmed protections for gay rights.
“The outcome of cases like this in other circumstances must await further elaboration in the courts,” he wrote, “all in the context of recognizing that these disputes must be resolved with tolerance, without undue disrespect to sincere religious beliefs, and without subjecting gay persons to indignities when they seek goods and services in an open market.”
Justice Kennedy often casts the deciding vote in closely divided cases on major social issues. When the court agreed to hear the Colorado case last June, it seemed to present him with a stark choice between two of his core commitments. On the one hand, Justice Kennedy has written every major Supreme Court decision protecting gay men and lesbians. On the other, he is the court’s most ardent defender of free speech.
On Monday, Justice Kennedy chose a third path, one that seemed to apply only to the case before the court.
Writing for the majority in the 7-to-2 decision, he said the Civil Rights Commission’s ruling against the baker, Jack Phillips, had been infected by religious animus. He cited what he said were “inappropriate and dismissive comments” from one commissioner in saying that the panel had acted inappropriately and that its decision should be overturned.
“The neutral and respectful consideration to which Phillips was entitled was compromised here,” Justice Kennedy wrote. “The Civil Rights Commission’s treatment of his case has some elements of a clear and impermissible hostility toward the sincere religious beliefs that motivated his objection.”
Yeah, so it’s not the ultimate win.
I’m not a lawyer, but basically this case was set to remove all civil rights protections from faggots, because it either means they have identity-based “civil rights” – which means forcing people to do business with them, like the blacks can do – or they don’t.
Kennedy used a loophole here. Which might mean that they are going to get another gay cake, or some other gay marriage case. They’re deciding right now whether or not to hear a gay wedding flowers case.
So, we’re a long way from going full-Russia.
But hey – a win is a win is a win, and the faggots and faggot-lovers looking at this won’t be looking at the nuance of the decision.
They’ll just be looking at the fact that the winning streak of sick homosexual perverts just ended.
So it’s worth celebrating.
