Supreme Court Gives The Green Light To Trump’s Travel Ban & Will Hear Appeal From Homophobic ‘Cake Artist’!

It’s already been quite the week for the Supreme Court!

The court announced it would allow parts of Donald Trump‘s 90-day travel ban to go into effect on Monday, and will hear oral arguments on the case in October.

This ruling overturns lower court orders that blocked the controversial order, which will apply to travelers coming from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.

Though the court did leave a category of foreigners protected, those “with a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States” — meaning students accepted to U.S. universities and employees who have accepted jobs with a company in the States.

The justices will hear arguments in the case in October, after the ban allows the government to conduct an internal review of the screening procedures for visa applicants from those countries.

But first, justices have an even more controversial confection to devour!

Also on Monday, the Supreme Court agreed to hear an appeal from the Colorado baker who refused to create a same-sex wedding cake for religious reasons.

Baker Jack Phillips, who owns Masterpiece Cakeshop, lost a civil rights case in 2015 after David Mullins and Charlie Craig filed discrimination charges against him for refusing to bake a cake for their upcoming wedding reception.

In his Supreme Court brief, Phillips’ lawyers say the “cake artist” is “happy to create other items for gay and lesbian clients,” but argue it’s a violation of his constitutional rights to be forced to make cakes that do not “align with his religious beliefs.”

Multiple courts already ruled against the cake artist… so, we’ll see if the Supreme Court fudges this one up.
