It was 7 - 2 yet every news outlet says Gay Cake was a 'narrow ruling'
What is this I see in the media?

Every news outlet says the Gay Cake ruling was a 'narrow ruling'.

But read deeper into the story and you will find the decision was 7 - 2.

That's over 77% of the Supreme Court... what is the media trying to do? hmm

An example...

-----

In narrow ruling, Supreme Court gives victory to baker who refused to make cake for gay wedding

The U.S. Supreme Court gave a boost to advocates of religious freedom on Monday, ruling that a Colorado baker cannot be forced to make a cake for a same-sex wedding, in a case that involved marriage equality and protection from discrimination.

But the opinion was a narrow one, applying to the specific facts of this case only. It gave no hint as to how the court might decide future cases involving florists, bakers, photographers and other business owners who have cited religious and free-speech objections when refusing to serve gay and lesbian customers in the wake of the Supreme Court's 2015 same-sex marriage decision.

It's homosexual marriage ruling was also narrow. One ruling can't be narrow and the ruling other broad.

This opens the door for states to re-ban LGBT marriages.

A well known psychological tactic or a writer without skill. I get what they are saying in that the decision applies to this case ONLY and it's scope is limited.

Narrow is leading the casual reader down a path of misinformation. Intentionally so, OR, the main outlet that wrote the story (that others copy and paste) is impaired when it comes to the English language. The correct word in place of "narrow" is limited.

Thoughts? Sure...
The media has been a big LGTB promoter, so anything that seems to be against it will be manipulated by them, as per your example of them using the word "narrow" when in reality, as you stated, it was 77%

Fact: there are fewer LGBT in the US now than in 1978.

Not just fewer numbers, but fewer percentage as well.

This Is why they now lump blacks and every fetish they can make up under the fag banner.

Re: It was 7 - 2 yet every news outlet says Gay Cake was a 'narrow ruling'
The media is using the words opinion and ruling as though they are the same. Only the OPINION was narrow. The ruling was most decisive. The want to refer to the opinion as being narrow to emphasize that it covers a LIMITED area of thinking and does not cover all things.

Saying that the RULING was narrow is F A K E news.

By narrow they mean in the legal sense not in vote. The ruling only applies to the one specific incident and does not rule on the conditionality of the Colorado law itself, so basically it's narrow in the scope of law, it solves nothing except this one incident

Re: It was 7 - 2 yet every news outlet says Gay Cake was a 'narrow ruling'
I take "narrow ruling" to mean it's not a ruling that will have a broad impact. It's not a class action lawsuit, for example, which would be something with a broad impact.

"Narrow ruling" does not equal "narrow vote." You're thinking of a narrow vote, which of course, it was not.

Not that I agree but I think it has to do this the opinion itself (worded narrowly and even says it doesn't settle the bigger issues). and not the breakdown of votes. hf

They don't mean "narrow vote", they mean "narrow" in the sense, that its not a general ruling adn can not just be applicated to other cases.

Of course they are playing word games, but thats what they mean.

Narrow in that The SCOTUS only ruled that the Colorado court did not treat the baker fairly; they did not provide a ruling or opinion on any other aspect.

Re: It was 7 - 2 yet every news outlet says Gay Cake was a 'narrow ruling'
WHat a strange thing. By mentioning "narrow ruling" it directs your attention to the number of votes. It got me looking, which I otherwise wouldn't have noticed.

5-4 is narrow. 6-3 or better is not.

WHY WHY do they keep shooting themselves in the foot at the MSM? Nuts? Or drugs? Or their talking points are written by nuts on drugs? Just dunno.
