Contributing sentiments towards policy:

55% : And the case could be an opportunity for the Supreme Court to curtail state-level anti-discrimination laws.
52% : For many, that might not seem like a violation of her speech rights - web designers take work from companies and people they don't personally agree with all the time - but she said that the First Amendment means she can't even be made to copy and paste someone else's words as part of her business.
50% : During oral arguments two years ago, the Associated Press reports that Chief Judge Timothy Tymkovich asked Smith if she would accept work from a wedding planner who wanted her to create five websites: four for opposite-sex couples and one for a same-sex couple.
49% : "The anti-discrimination law is a straightforward regulation of commercial conduct," Weiser said.
46% : While her story is religious in nature, she's challenging the Colorado anti-discrimination law on free speech grounds, since her job involves putting words on websites.
44% : A Christian web designer who was never asked to make a website for any same-sex couple is going to have her lawsuit heard either later this year or next year by the Supreme Court, boding ill for the future of LGBTQ anti-discrimination law.
44% : While she works with people who don't follow her form of Christianity - she has taken work from a Jewish group before - working for same-sex couples would violate her religious beliefs, she argued.
43% : She could overturn anti-discrimination laws.
42% : In 2016, Lorie Smith and her company 303 Creative LLC sued the state of Colorado for banning businesses from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation because she doesn't want to make wedding websites for same-sex couples.
37% : Three of the nine Supreme Court justices are currently conservative, and this might be the case they will use to rule against LGBTQ equality and limit civil rights measures.
