Supreme Court same-sex wedding cake case

Public divided over whether businesses must provide wedding services for same-sex couples

Supreme Court same-sex wedding cake case reflects split among American public

The U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments Tuesday on a question that divided the American people in a 2016 Pew Research Center survey, with roughly half (49%) saying businesses should be required to provide wedding services to same-sex couples, and a nearly identical share (48%) saying that they should be able to refuse to provide services due to religious objections. There were sharp differences based on respondents’ religious affiliation and political party, but overall, there is rising societal acceptance of homosexuality and same-sex marriage.
