The Christian baker at the center of Tuesday’s Supreme Court ruling in a religious-liberty case said Tuesday on the “Today” show that he was “thrilled” with the outcome.
“I serve everybody. I just don’t create cakes for every occasion that people ask me to create,” Jack Phillips, the Colorado business owners who refused to bake a cake for a gay couple’s wedding, explained to NBC’s Honda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie.
Mr. Phillips‘ case hinged on an argument for freedom of expression and religious freedom, which he said would extend to other types of messages as well.
“I don’t create cakes for Halloween. I wouldn’t create a cake that would be anti-American or disparaging against anyone for any reason,” he said, explaining other situations where he declines requests from prospective clients.
On Tuesday’s program, Mr. Phillips said he was “thrilled” about the ruling that would “allow us to enter the wedding business again.”
