Kennedy wrestles with Lakewood same-sex wedding cake case at Supreme Court
WASHINGTON -- His vote likely to decide the outcome, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy voiced competing concerns Tuesday about respecting the religious beliefs of a Lakewood baker who wouldn't make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple, and the gay couple's dignity. Kennedy, the author of all the court's major gay-rights cases, worried early in a riveting argument at the high court that a ruling in favor of baker Jack Phillips might allow shop owners to put up signs saying "We do not bake cakes for gay weddings."
