Sen. Lee Commends Supreme Court Defense of First Amendment

June 4, 2018

WASHINGTON – Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) issued the following statement Monday after the Supreme Court held that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission had violated a baker’s First Amendment right free exercise of religion.

“The Colorado Civil Rights Commission’s hostility toward the religious beliefs of Mr. Phillips was incompatible with the First Amendment,” Sen. Lee said. “Today’s decision is a win for our nation’s founding principle that our laws must be applied in a manner that is neutral toward religion.”
