Church Responds to Supreme Court Ruling on Colorado Baker and Same-Sex Wedding Case


On Monday, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of a Colorado baker who refused to make a cake for the wedding ceremony of a same-sex couple. 

The court ruled that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission showed hostility toward Jack Phillips based on his religious beliefs. 

In a quote to the Deseret News, Church spokesman Eric Hawkins released the following response to the ruling: "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints welcomes today’s Supreme Court decision. The nation’s laws can protect both religious liberty and the rights of LGBT citizens. That is the meaning of fairness for all."
