Cases are percolating up to the Supreme Court that will test the meaning of Masterpiece Cakeshop.
One is Arlene Flowers Inc. v. Washington, which concerns a florist and a same-sex marriage. The Court set it for conference for June 7, but has yet to issue an order in the case.
Here are the issues before the Court:
(1) Whether the creation and sale of custom floral arrangements to celebrate a wedding ceremony is artistic expression, and, if so, whether compelling their creation violates the free speech clause.
(2) Whether the compelled creation and sale of custom floral arrangements to celebrate a wedding and attendance of that wedding against one's religious beliefs violates the free exercise clause.
Keep an eye out for further developments of this and other religious liberty cases before the Supreme Court.
