The Supreme Court is ruling on a Colorado website designer's case to deny wedding websites to same-sex couples.

Smith wants to be able to refuse service to same-sex couples based on her religious beliefs, even though her website doesn't currently offer wedding designs. The Supreme Court seems to be more interested in the First Amendment implications of Smith's case.

Civil Rights groups are concerned that if Smith is granted an exemption from the state law, other businesses will be able to discriminate against people.

If the justices rule in Smith's favor, they asked where the line is drawn. She asked about people who don't believe in interracial marriage and people who don't believe that disabled people shouldn't marry.

The Supreme Court is expected to make a final decision before the summer season ends in June of next year, but they have not given an exact date.

Four years ago, a Colorado baker was sued by a gay couple for denying them a wedding cake. The court ruled in favor of the baker, but did not make a decision on whether the First Amendment protects businesses that violate anti-discrimination laws based on religious convictions.
