Vocal Point-Dr. Adam Carrington

The Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Christian baker in Colorado, stating he did not have to violate his conscience and bake that cake for a same-sex wedding after all. But critics note that they seemed to decide the issue on a procedural issue as opposed to the merits of the case. That’s why many people are describing the decision as a “narrow ruling.” Adam Carrington, a professor of political science at Hillsdale College, comments: “While the majority opinion does force courts to listen to religious claims for protection and to neither mock them or to rebuff them out of hand, it is narrow in that it focuses only on how the Colorado Civil Rights Commission treated religious claims, not how the case should have been decided. The biggest issue–free speech–remains undecided.” Dr. Adam Carrington joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss the recent ruling. www.hillsdale.edu
