Attorney General Jeff Sessions has insisted that Christian bakers have a legal right to refuse
"It says Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of a religion nor prohibiting the free exercise thereof," he continued. "So the question is, the cake baker has more than just a personal view here. He has a religious view and he feels that he is not being able to freely exercise his religion by being required to participate in a ceremony in some fashion that he does not believe in."
Business owners being able to act on their religious conviction is "a fundamental right and ought to be respected as we work through this process," he said.
