Humble Prince Commentary: This should be interesting. Do Business Owners(like Masterpiece Cakeshop) in the United States have the right to decline services for a Same Sex Wedding Ceremony based on their religious beliefs? Are they protected under the 1st Amendment that advocates free speech and religious freedom? I can somewhat relate. I'm a Christian and Same Sex Marriage does not align with the tenets of Christianity. But I hosted a same sex wedding reception and will probably host more if the opportunities come through. For me it boils down to a personal conviction and I see it as providing a service. To each his own.
"The case will be a major test of clash between laws that ban businesses open to the public from discriminating based on sexual orientation and claims of religious freedom. Around the nation, businesses like bakeries, florists and photography studios have said, so far with little success, that forcing them to serve gay couples violate their constitutional rights"
