  • AMNA NAWAZ: A Christian baker in Colorado who turned away a same-sex couple should not

  • be penalized.

  • That was the judgment from the U.S. Supreme Court today in one of the highest-profile

  • cases of this term.

  • The 7-2 decision was a significant, but narrowly tailored victory for advocates of religious

  • freedom.

  • The court ruled in favor of Colorado baker Jack Phillips, who refused to design a wedding

  • cake for a same-sex couple.

  • Advocates on both sides reacted to the news this morning:

  • MICHAEL FARRIS, President, Alliance Defending Freedom: Justice Kennedy's opinion can be

  • summed up as tolerance is a two-way street.

  • Religious freedom is to be respected, just as he's respect gay rights decisions in many

  • other contexts.

  • WOMAN: We are saddened, but we're not shocked.

  • And, really, the case is a loss, but it's a narrow loss.

  • It's a limited loss.

  • AMNA NAWAZ: Six years ago, when Charlie Craig and David Mullins were planning their wedding,

  • they visited Phillips' cake shop.

  • DAVID MULLINS, Plaintiff: As soon as we sat down with the owner, he asked who the cake

  • was for and we told him it was for us.

  • JACK PHILLIPS, Owner, Masterpiece Cakeshop: So, I'm thinking, OK, how can I politely tell

  • these guys that's an event that I can't participate in?

  • I said, I will make you a birthday cake, cookies, brownies.

  • I will sell you anything in the shop.

  • It's just an event that I can't create a cake for.

  • CHARLIE CRAIG, Plaintiff: When we left the bakery, we cried together.

  • You know, it was really emotional.

  • It was really sad.

  • AMNA NAWAZ: Last year, Phillips told the "NewsHour" that designing the wedding cake would have

  • violated his religious belief that marriage is between a man and a woman.

  • JACK PHILLIPS: All I'm trying to do is use my art, use my craft to create cakes to help

  • people celebrate special occasions in their life.

  • I never turn anybody away, just events that I turn away.

  • AMNA NAWAZ: But the couple claimed the baker discriminated against them based on their

  • sexual orientation.

  • DAVID MULLINS: He turned us away because of who we are and because of who we love.

  • AMNA NAWAZ: Mullins and Craig brought their complaint to the Colorado Civil Rights Commission,

  • who sided with the couple.

  • But today, justice Anthony Kennedy disagreed.

  • He ruled the commission didn't act as a neutral party, that it had been hostile to the cake

  • maker's religious beliefs.

  • The decision didn't resolve the issue of whether a business may ever invoke religion to refuse

  • service to gays and lesbians.

  • We will talk about the significance of the decision after the news summary.
