Well, one good thing

In a major upcoming Supreme Court case that weights equal rights with religious liberty, the Trump administration on Thursday sided with a Colorado baker who refused to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple.
The [Justice Dept.] on Thursday filed a brief on behalf of baker Jack Philips, who was found to have violated the Colorado Anti-Discrimination Act by refusing to create a cake to celebrate the marriage of Charlie Craig and David Mullins in 2012.
The government agreed with Philips that his cakes are a form of expression, and he cannot be compelled to use his talents for something in which he does not believe.
Yes, this is all over something that happened in 2012. Most people would write a negative Yelp review. This couple opted for five years of legal battles instead. Totes normal.
The ACLU decried the Justice Dept.'s move as "ULTIMATE HOMOPHOBIA!" of course. It's stirred up quite the outrage. But they have a point. Mr. Philips isn't a bakery slave whose sole purpose is to sate everyone's salivary glands with sweetness. He doesn't have to validate the identities of insecure fairies with his delicious talents. He's an American business owner, which means he's free to do business with whomever he pleases.
Still, LGBT wants to throw a piss fit every time they don't get their way (see
Abercrombie & Fitch Pen Pro-LGBT Tweet. Angry Gays Attack Them for Being TOO Inclusive
). Notice how the organization's allies claim to want to protect the rights of special minorities, but they care precisely none about whether the freedoms of you or I or Philips are protected all the while. They simply want their homo cake, and they want to devour it in the most effeminate way possible too.
It's about time the government sided with freedom over feelings.
Meanwhile there's not a leftist screech to be heard about Muslim bakeries.
