Supreme Court To Take Case From Bigoted Web Designer Looking To Discriminate Against Gays

Posted February 22, 2022 by with 2 comments

This born again dipshit whore already lost her case in Colorado, but now she’s hoping the Supreme Court will help her to legally discriminate against gays by refusing to design their wedding websites (as if any sane person would go to her for web design work in the first place). Given the makeup of the court today thanks to everyone who voted for Trump, she has a good chance at a win, however, the court has only agreed to hear one component of the case, as explained below. Via Denver Post:

The Supreme Court has agreed to hear a new clash involving religion and the rights of LGBT people.

The high court said Tuesday it would hear the case of Colorado-based web designer Lorie Smith. Smith offers graphic and website design services and wants to expand to wedding website services, but she says her religious beliefs would lead her to decline any request from a same-sex couple to design a wedding website.

She also wants to post a statement on her website about her beliefs, but that would run afoul of a Colorado anti-discrimination law. Smith had argued the law violates her free speech and religious rights.

The Supreme Court said in taking the case, however, that it would look only at the free speech issue. It said it would decide whether a law that requires an artist to speak or stay silent violates the free speech clause of the First Amendment. The case is expected to be argued in the fall.

In a 2-1 ruling last year, the Denver-based 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals denied Smith’s attempt to overturn a lower court ruling throwing out her legal challenge. The panel said Colorado had a compelling interest in protecting the “dignity interests” of members of marginalized groups through its law, the Colorado Anti-Discrimination Act.
