The opinion of the Court, and the many concurring opinions, are inscrutable. The Court doesn't seem to resolve anything, but goes out of its way to rule in favor of the discriminating baker, all the while qualifying its decision by saying "we think gay people deserve to be treated well" and "no new rights to discriminate on the basis of religion are created with today's decision".

What the fuck?

Why was this case selected? Why are the justices falling over themselves to acknowledge religious freedoms to discriminate via scripture? Why is Gorsuch name dropping law review articles?

I am sleepy.
