How do someone decide religious freedom (freedom of speech) vs. discrimination?  Freedom of speech or is this a case of discrimination?  Where do freedom of speech ends and discrimination start?  The supreme court ruled 7-2 in favor of freedom of speech over discrimination .

you do realize what freedom of speech is right?

You don't have that right when your service is being provided to the open public.

This is a case of balancing "religious liberties" and "civil rights."  How do you uphold one right without infringing on the other?  I believe the court got this one right. O0

ROFL! Ph Libtards wracking their brain over the ruling...

....you're all wrong. The reason why the supreme court ruled in favor of the baker is because the Colorado courts discriminated against him. There was already a previous Colorado case in which the court sided with a baker who refused to write a Christian verse that was played up to denounce homosexuality. If the courts are going to allow that baker to refuse a 'custom' cake then they should allow Jack Phillips to opt out of baking a customized cake.

Customers do not have rights to a 'customized' product. Business owners do not have to produce a "customized" item if it expresses a message that violates their deeply held beliefs. That includes secularists who don't want to customize a message that says "atheists should die". In fact, business owners do not have to produce any customization that would misrepresent their brand.

 "Customization" is the operative word here. Wedding cakes are always "customized". They also express a message and that's why they are called "wedding" cakes. Masterpiece Cakeshop reserves their right not to bake a customized wedding cake that would express any marriage outside of a heterosexual union.

Let small businesses do what they want as long as they ain't getting any kind of tax breaks or money from the government. I own a small hunting business and you wouldn't believe the amount of regulation bullcrap, excuse my french I have to deal with.
