Still not about bathrooms, weddings, cakes, or event hosting.

But not surprising this is in Oregon. Hopefully Masterpiece Cakeshop will take care of this one, but if not, maybe this will have to end up at the Supreme Court, too. Because we all know how the Ninth Circus will rule on it.

So the event center blindly signed a contract with the church forbidding them from hosting events contrary to Church teaching, now they're butt hurt about that part of the contract being enforced? What's the problem?

No, it definitely isn't about any of those things.

SC just ruled on Masterpiece. The brief said Colorado was biased against the baker's faith, instead of keeping neutrality toward religion.

Unfortunately, I don't think Masterpiece Cakeshop covers this one. They're not creating anything or endorsing the event, just providing a meeting space. Maybe there's a free speech argument here, although it also seemed to say that the event centre was owned by the church, so maybe there's a freedom of religion argument. But it looks like Catholics can't own event centres anymore.

Yeah, the narrowness of the Masterpiece ruling does damn all to protect anyone else.

Not surprising, though, given that Kennedy wrote it. And with what Kennedy wrote in it, Christians lose the general argument that they don't have to provide goods for a gay 'wedding'.

I wonder if they'd force a Muslim baker to provide a cake for a First Communion. I think we all know who wins that one.
