EMBED

NAPOLITANO: In my opinion, this legislation is, in this era, profoundly unconstitutional. The Supreme Court has ruled in [Romer v. Evans], a Supreme Court case involving a resolution of a city, an ordinance of a city in Colorado which prohibited entities from protecting gays – it didn’t discriminate against them but it said you can’t give them added protection – and the Supreme Court said the government can’t make distinctions like that. Government can’t do things based on hatred or stereotypes. So to permit someone to refuse to serve a birthday cake or a wedding cake to a gay person but to compel them to serve that wedding cake to a straight person is plain stereotypes and hatred and the Constitution prohibits government from doing that.
