Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano on Monday warned that a recent Supreme Court ruling could lead to more discrimination.
The former judge was asked about the Supreme Court’s decision to hand a victory to a Colorado baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple because of his religious convictions.
Napolitano explained that the Supreme Court justices sided with the baker because they found that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission had been hostile to the baker’s Christian beliefs.
But Napolitano added that the ruling set a dangerous precedent.
“Because it will allow others to say my religious beliefs prohibit me from dealing with women, or Italians, or African-Americans,” he explained. “And they will base it on the logic in this case.”

Buying stamps won’t stop Trump from destroying the postal system
News of a financial crisis at the United States Postal Service (USPS) has led to a public call urging Americans to buy stamps to save the country's beloved mail system and prevent the delay of mail-in ballots in November's election. Articles published in both Hyperallergic and Lifehacker promoted the idea that buying stamps could save the USPS. Back in April, before Trump began gutting the post office for political reasons, people who cared about the postal service were urging others to buy stamps in the hope that this would save it.
Bipartisan Senate committee asked for investigation of Trump family for lying to investigators: report
According to the Los Angeles Times, bipartisan members of the Senate Intelligence Committee called for investigation into members of President Donald Trump's family and campaign, alleging that their testimony to former special counsel Robert Mueller contradicted the information provided by deputy campaign chairman Rick Gates.
"The letter, a copy of which was reviewed by The Times, was signed by the panel’s then-chairman, Republican Sen. Richard M. Burr, and its ranking Democrat, Sen. Mark Warner," reported Del Quentin Wilber, Chris Megerian, Sarah Wire, and Jennifer Haberkorn. "It also raised concerns about testimony provided by family members and confidants of President Trump that appeared to contradict information provided by a former deputy campaign chairman to Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III. Those it identified as providing such conflicting testimony were the president’s son Donald Trump Jr., his son-in-law Jared Kushner, former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former White House Communications Director Hope Hicks."
Trump has ‘started to sound desperate’ as election nears: Fox News politics editor
Breaking from the normal Fox News pack that lavishes praise on Donald Trump, political editor Chris Stirewalt penned an editorial for the conservative network's website saying the president increasingly appears to be desperate as the November election nears.
As Stirewalt notes, in 2016 Trump ran like a man who didn't care if he won or he lost and that was part of his appeal as a novice politician. Pointing out that politicians of any stripe who indulge in "the say anything, do anything, ends-justify-the-means approach to politics" is "queasy making" he adds that Trump has entered that stage of his political career.
