Case of Christian Web Designer’s Refusal to Work for Gay Couples Goes to Supreme Court

Objectivity 4.5 | Credibility 4.6 | Relevance 4.9

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday is hearing the case of a Christian web designer who refuses to design wedding websites for gay couples. Lorie Smith, a web designer in Colorado, and her supporters argue that Colorado’s public accommodation law which requires her to provide service to all customers violates her First Amendment rights. The court that now has a 6-3 conservative majority might overturn its 2015 decision that legalized same-sex marriage nationwide, as Justice Clarence Thomas claimed the decision should be reexamined. The case is 303 Creative LLC v. Elenis, 21-476.
