THE DECISION WILL TAKE PLACE IN MID-2018

Newsroom/El Comercio de Colorado

The Judges in th Supreme Court have until June 2018 to rule over the conflict between a gay couple and a Chrstian baker in Colorado. The nine judges of the highest court in the country will evaluate the arguments from Jack Phillups, a Colorado baker who, in July 2012, refused to design a cake for a same-sex couple with the argument that it violated his religious beliefs. Phillips alleges that his cakes are a form of art expression and forcing him to create that cake would attempt against his free speech.

The case made it to the Supreme Court after all other judicial instances in Colorado ruled in favor of the couple formed by Charlie Craig and David Mullins, who sued Phillips. After the baker refused to bake the cake, the couple denounced the case before the Colorado Civil Rights Commission, who sided with them. That decision was then ratified by a Colorado court. The Supreme Court is now the last instance the could side with the artisan and revoke all previous decisions that favored Craig and Mullinsque.

All eyes on Kennedy and Gorsuch

Analysts believe this vote will be a close call and most likely only one judge my break a very tight decision. That is why all eyes are on Anthony Kennnedy, who has in many occasions been the “swing vote” in cases related to LGBT rights. This judge wrote the verdict that legalized same-sex marriage in June of 2015. In a recent audience for this case, Kennedy asked tough questions.

The Magistrate believes that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission didn’t appear “tolerant or respectful towards Phillips’ religious beliefs” when they ruled against him for violation of Colorado’s anti-discrimination laws.  In that regard, some of the conservative judges talk about the possibility that procedures against Phillips were tainted with prejudice. Another judge that got a lot of attention was Neil Gorshuch. He is part of the conservative wing of the Court. His vote would probably favor the baker. In previous instances, Gorsuch has placed religious freedom of individuals over Government regulations. Meanwhile, the progressive judges questioned the limits of what can be considered art, and who has the right to discriminate others based on their freedom of speech. Magistrate Elena Kagan asked whether a hairdresser, a makeup artist, and a baker could be able to discriminate others because they believe their work is considered art.
