Anyone who makes cake knows this: cake’s a labour of love. Cake is an expression of oneself. Cake’s a work of art. Cake is more than butter-sugar-flour deliciousness: Cake is speech.
After years of attacks and legal battles facing bakers and bakeries, the US Department of Justice has issued a brief stating, in part, that a custom wedding cake is a form of expression and that bakers cannot be coerced into an expression with which they disagree. So, cake… yes, it’s speech.
There will be, no doubt, an upheaval over this… but it’s a victory for those whose livelihood (as well as freedom of speech!) is at stake. Read about the brief here.
