Since the Court is unveiling a lot of their termís decisions now, I thought itíd be an opportune time to discuss their implications (and whether weíll be happy if certain justices die or retire).

The Colorado baker case is currently the talk of the nation, having resulted in a 7-2 majority in favor of the baker. I personally think this was a reasonable decision. I understand that it skirts a very fine line between free expression and condoning discrimination (hence why I think there should be no law either way on the issue) the notion that one can be coerced into serving someone doesnít sit well with me at all.

Thereís also todayís 5-4 ruling that Ohioís voter purging policies donít violate federal voter laws. I still need to do some research there.

And the Colorado baker decision was a very limited decision that doesn't really open the floodgates as some people seem to think.  It was really more of a referendum on the CCRC and their inability to stay neutral with respect to religion than a landmark decision against LGBTQ.

I haven't done research on the Ohio ruling either - largely because I vote every election so it's not going to really affect me much.
