On Monday, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of a Colorado baker who denied service to a gay couple. The court’s decision was narrow, and it left open the larger question of whether a business can discriminate against gay men and lesbians based on rights protected by the First Amendment.

On Tuesday, U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi expressed her disagreement about the Supreme Court ruling. Pelosi issued a statement describing the court’s decision as an “anti-civil rights ruling.”
“The Masterpiece Cakeshop case is about the most fundamental right of all Americans: to be free from persecution and discrimination because of who they are or whom they love,” she wrote.
Pelosi criticized the “wrongheaded” majority for a decision that “fails to uphold equality in this case.”
Masterpiece Cakeshop is a commercial bakery open to the public, and such services clearly must be made available to the public on equal terms as determined by an independent review by the Colorado Court of Appeals which should have been upheld,” she wrote. “No business or organization open to the public should hide their discriminatory practices behind the guise of religious liberty.”
She concluded her statement with a call to action for Congress to “immediately move to pass the Equality Act, to remove all doubt that sexual orientation and gender warrant fundamental civil rights protections in the workplace and in every place.”
