U.S. Senator Ben Sasse released the following statement regarding the Supreme Court’s 7-2 decision in Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission.

“A supermajority 7-2 decision protecting the free exercise of religion is good news for all defenders of the First Amendment. But Justice Thomas is right: The Court punted on many issues, and will hopefully safeguard freedom of speech more fully in future opinions.”
