When you read some of the tweets celebrating the ruling, it's increasingly hard to draw the line between their interest in religious rights and their interest in dehumanizing LGBT people. Apparently, discriminating against antigay Christians is wrong, but denying queer people services is acceptable in their eyes.
Others lacked the basic understanding that "narrow ruling" refers to the logic behind the decision itself, not how many people voted for it.
\u201cToday #SCOTUS guaranteed reelection of Pres. @realDonaldTrump by protecting religious right of baker to not participate in a gay wedding. @POTUS promised to protect religious liberty. This is the most consequential ex. of "promise made, promise kept." Thank you, President Trump!\u201d

\u201cWe thank God for answered prayer! Today the Supreme Court has ruled in favor of Jack Phillips, the Colorado baker who refused to create a wedding cake for a same-sex marriage ceremony. This is a huge win for religious freedom!\nhttps://t.co/jXX6pd6xaQ\u201d
\u201cToday\u2019s Supreme Court decision upholding a Colorado baker\u2019s constitutional right to live according to his faith is a major victory for religious liberty. The fact that the decision was 7-2 (not a narrow 5-4) underscores that govt should NEVER discriminate against religious faith.\u201d
\u201c@FoxNews @MikeEmanuelFox The only thing today\u2019s #SCOTUS decision guarantees is that the government can\u2019t subterfuge the integrity of our witness to our LGBTQ neighbors.\nIt\u2019s still up to us to be a loving witness to Jesus\u2019 redemptive leadership.\n#OnlyOffendWithTheCross\u201d
\u201cThe decision upholds 1st Amendment that Govt can\u2019t make law that forces ppl to violate their legitimate religious beliefs. That Kennedy wrote opinion is significant. https://t.co/GIOHASv3L0\u201d

\u201cWhat a huge victory for religious liberty! SCOTUS rules in favor of Jack Phillips after he declined to build a custom wedding cake for a gay wedding, since gay marriage violates his religious beliefs. SCOTUS said: it's Phillip's 1st Amend right. #SCOTUS\u201d
\u201cToday, the Supreme Court ruled 7-2 in favor of Colorado baker who declined making a cake for a gay wedding. Instead of finding another baker, the two men took him to court to force him to bake for them. This ruling is a big victory for freedom of speech. https://t.co/WSoAGVEFUq\u201d
\u201cSupreme Court correctly rules in favor of religious freedom \n\nWe will never allow America to become a place where people are FORCED to provide a service against their deeply held religious beliefs \n\nDon\u2019t force someone to do something they don\u2019t believe in\n\nThat is fascism\u201d
\u201cI\u2019m honestly confused by the amount of LGBT anger in my timeline in regards to the #SCOTUS decision, seeing as how I\u2019ve heard time and again that the state should stay out of the business of their personal decisions.\u201d
\u201cA GREAT DAY FOR THE FIRST AMENDMENT! Congrats to Jack Phillips & the Masterpiece Cakeshop, for whom I had the honor of rallying hundreds of generous Americans to raise almost $30K on his behalf last year. Thank you #SCOTUS for upholding this most vital tenet of freedom.\u201d
