(COLUMBIA, S.C.) Conservative buzzsaw and Republican gubernatorial candidate Catherine Templeton released the following statement on today’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling on Masterpiece Cakeshop vs. Colorado Civil Rights Commission. The nation’s highest court ruled in favor of a baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple.
“The Supreme Court upheld what we South Carolinians already know: that political correctness does not override personal religious beliefs. No government has the authority to impose disobedience to one’s faith. Today’s ruling is a victory for religious freedom and a defeat for unelected bureaucrats who try to impose their liberal views on God-fearing Christians. We must be eternally vigilant and ready to oppose anyone who would try to rob us of our religious freedom.”
