In this talk, Dr. John Corvino, Dean from Wayne State University, explores that question against the background of sexual-orientation discrimination in the United States and elsewhere. In 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favour of Jack Phillips, a Colorado baker who refused to create a cake for a same-sex wedding reception despite a state law prohibiting sexual-orientation discrimination. In the concurring opinions, especially those of Justices Kagan and Gorsuch, there is a lively debate about what counts as denying "the same cake" to different customers. RSVP required.
