Federalist Society and American Consititution Society

October 31: To Bake or Not to Bake: A Debate about Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission

A Christian baker who specializes in baking creative, customized wedding cakes declined to create a customized wedding cake for a same-sex wedding because doing so conflicted with his religious beliefs. This case presents two conflicting principles: (1) the baker's right to speak and refrain from speaking in ways that conflict with his religious beliefs and (2) the same-sex couple's right to be free from sexual orientation discrimination.

The debate will feature Jordan Lorence, senior counsel of the Alliance Defending Freedom, representing the baker's side. Professor Steven Heyman, a renowned legal scholar on free speech from Chicago-Kent, will represent the side of accommodation for the same-sex couple.

Includes a free lunch! Don't miss out.

Date: Tuesday, October 31
Time: Noon
Location: Room 170
