TITUSVILLE, FL - Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today issued the following statement on the Supreme Court’s decision this morning in Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission.

“The Supreme Court’s narrow decision in Masterpiece Cakeshop is a great victory for Jack Phillips, the baker persecuted by the Colorado Civil Rights Commission for his religious beliefs, but the Court’s failure to take on the larger question of whether people of deep faith can live out that faith in the marketplace is a disappointment.

“As one who has spent years in litigation with the federal government over state infringements of religious liberty, it’s clear that the government cannot limit one’s ability to practice one’s faith without a compelling reason.  Here, there is no reason for the government to punish religious believers at the expense of those intolerant of certain faiths.  Same-sex couples do not need the heavy hand of government to impose their beliefs on religious business owners; they need only to walk across the street to the many wedding vendors more than willing to take their money. 

“When the Supreme Court finally does decide on the rights of those who sincerely believe that participation in same-sex ceremonies contradicts their fundamental beliefs, I’m confident that it will uphold the right to religious liberty enshrined in our Constitution. The eventual resolution of that more fundamental question very much depends on the November mid- term elections and giving President Trump the tools he needs to confirm the right judges and justices.”
