With only four weeks left in this year’s Supreme Court session, some of the most high-profile and consequential cases have yet to be decided, including a ruling that will determine whether businesses have the right to discriminate against LGBTQ people based on religious beliefs. Rabbi Jay Michaelson, author, activist and attorney, will join State of Belief host Rev. Welton Gaddy this week to discuss Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission. At the heart of the case is a baker who refused to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple, claiming he was right to do so on free speech grounds. Welton and Jay will also examine the other cases still before the court and what the decisions could mean for the future of faith and public life in the United States.
