Jimmy Kimmel has been exposed getting a California ruling on a gay wedding cake completely wrong, and sharing the information to his millions of viewers.
From The Daily Caller:
Late night host Jimmy Kimmel tried to mock a court ruling protecting the free speech rights of bakers but instead only revealed that he has no idea what he’s talking about.
A California judge ruled on Monday that the state can’t force Tastries Bakery owner Cathy Miller to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex wedding. Miller has stated that participating in same-sex weddings would violate her religious beliefs. Designing and baking a custom wedding cake, the judge ruled, is a form of protected artistic expression under the First Amendment
“A wedding cake is not just a cake in a Free Speech analysis. It is an artistic expression by the person making it that is to be used traditionally as a centerpiece in the celebration of a marriage,” judge David Lampe noted. Lampe’s ruling noted that because the cake “is not yet baked,” the state would be forcing Miller to express beliefs with which she doesn’t agree.
Forcing Miller to design and bake the custom cake for the event, Lampe noted, would be compelled speech similar to forcing schoolchildren to salute the American flag, which the Supreme Court ruled in 1943 was unconstitutional.
Kimmel absolutely butchered that ruling Thursday night. The liberal comedian acted out a skit in which a restaurant declines to serve gay people and Jewish people certain dishes because of various employees’ religious beliefs. In one instance, the “waiter” (Kimmel) explains that the gay customer can order a salad the chef made yesterday but not a salad not yet made, because the chef doesn’t want to serve gay people.
Kimmel’s scaremongering misses the entire point of the judge’s ruling.
