    One commissioner in particular, Justice Kennedy wrote, had crossed the line in saying that “freedom of religion and religion has been used to justify all kinds of discrimination throughout history, whether it be slavery, whether it be the Holocaust.”

    This is all they ruled on really, that the state violated the right to religion by using this in their arguments against the bakery. It doesn't really do anything except give these people a feel-good win that means nothing. Because...

    “Colorado law,” Justice Kennedy wrote in one, “can protect gay persons, just as it can protect other classes of individuals, in acquiring whatever products and services they choose on the same terms and conditions as are offered to other members of the public.”

    The real icing of this is that the bakery would be at fault for not serving gay people because the state has the right to require equal protection. All the state has to do is avoid making any statement on religion during their arguments.

    The problem with this ruling is it opens up discrimination to so many other things.
