See Americans, we’re not all despicable atheists over here (/s), we have religious fundies here too…
And given this comment in the stenography topic:
… here is the UK Supreme Court’s page where you can access the video footage of the hearing and of judgment being given:
I haven’t worked my way through the judgment yet to find out how exactly they squared that circle…
And having skimmed it, the judgment seems impeccably argued and btw also references Masterpiece Cakeshop, mostly to point out that that was a rather different scenario.
It seems to me it is going to lead to some odd results (i.e. one could presumably refuse to prepare a cake with an Islamic religious message to a Muslim for Eid due to one’s Christian faith but one couldn’t refuse to sell them a generic cake because they are Muslims. What if you know it is for an Eid celebration?) but I can see why they reached the conclusion they did.
