The law is a wonderful and curious thing. The exact thing at issue is commonly minuscule in nature compared to the concepts and arguments pertaining to the thing at issue.
Exhibit A: Cake. The issue of, literally, who gets a cake is before the United States Supreme Court. On the surface, it is boggling that there is a potentially a baker in downtown White Bear Lake who will appear before the Supreme Court over a cake, but the marvels of the law have essentially done just that.
In brief, the issue before the Supreme Court is whether a baker has the right to refuse to sell a wedding cake to a couple. While there are anti-discrimination laws preventing denial of a cake (or any other good or service) on discriminatory bases, the vendor of services also has rights in the form of Free Speech and not being forced to communicate messages the vendor does not agree with.
It, therefore, gets boiled down to this on a specific question: Is the making of a cake by a baker an expression of speech, such that the baker can refuse to make a cake (i.e. make an expression of speech) for a purpose the baker objects to on religious grounds?
What once was a cake order will now be addressed in the Supreme Court's order. Lawyers have the ability to understand how a common thing is much more complicated in the eyes of the law.
