Professor Robin Fretwell Wilson made appearances on podcasts for several news outlets this past week, in the wake of the controversial Supreme Court ruling in Masterpiece Cakeshop vs. Colorado Civil Rights Commission.
In what is being referred to as a "narrow" 7-2 decision, SCOTUS ruled in favor of a Colorado baker who refused to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple. The ruling was very specific to the case, and broader questions over LGBT rights, discrimination, and religious liberty were left unanswered by the justices.
In an interview for Wisconsin Public Radio on The Morning Show, Wilson said,"We have a big task ahead of us in America. Across two thirds of the country, there IS no public accommodations/non-discrimination law for LGBT persons. That's what is at stake here. And Kennedy is sort of helping law-makers write a script for a new pluralism that says 'we do business with each other, but those folks who have strongly held religious beliefs - those are protected views.' We have to find a way to reconcile both of those values."
