I see the ACLU calling this a victory, of sorts.  Back in March I attended a workshop put on by the ACLU looking at all these issues.  They did not expect the SCOTUS to issue a definitive ruling -- and that is sure the way things worked out.  I get updates from Equality PA about LGBTQ civil rights issues and they feel this was not as bad as it could have been BUT there is really a lot of work that needs to be done to actually secure our rights.

At least the Court did not set aside the underlying Colorado law.

Yesterday was still a lousy day for me.

No, it is a far cry from definitive, I actually get the impression that had the State of Colorado applied the law fairly and equally to every case before them the ruling would have been very different in a positive way.

The problem I see already, the far right see this as a victory and a license to discriminate as long as they claim religious beliefs despite every statement to the contrary; not that biggotry ever needs a real excuse.

It's makes one wonder how some would deal with it if the shoe was on the other foot.

Answers are easy. It's asking the right questions which is hard.

Be positive in the fact that there is always one person in a worse situation then you.
