“This decision is encouraging,” responds WFA president Julaine Appling, ” For a change we have an opinion on this type of issue that is faithful to the First Amendment and not hostile to religion. Other cases with religious freedom implications will be on the court’s docket next session, including a baker in Colorado who, based on his religious beliefs, won’t do cakes for same-sex weddings.”
