Bake Now, or Forever Hold Your Peace? | The Weekly Standard

Two years later, proponents of same-sex marriage want to have their cake and eat it, too. Their right to same-sex marriage was premised upon the assertion that it would not affect anyone else; but now they now assert that the right entitles them to force other people to affirmatively aid or celebrate their weddings. Even when this contradicts the people’s religious beliefs or freedom not to speak—precisely what Justice Kennedy and his colleagues assured would not happen.


It is very odd that one Justice basically calls the shots on what is after all a rather trivial question.

Oh, just kidding. It's not trivial. I just like to give con law wonks a hard time.
