WASHINGTON, D.C. (Newsource) — Conservative members of the Supreme Court appeared to side with a graphic designer who doesn’t want to work with same-sex couples on their wedding websites.
The conservative justices suggested that an artist or someone creating a customized product could not be forced by the government to express a message that violates her religious beliefs.
Meanwhile, supporters of LGBTQ rights and the state of Colorado, where the business is located, responded that the designer is simply seeking a license to discriminate in the marketplace.
A decision in the case is expected by July.
This comes as supporters of LGBTQ rights fear the 6-3 conservative majority on the high court may be setting its sights on reversing a landmark 2015 opinion that cleared the way for same-sex marriage nationwide.
