Responding to the recent Supreme Court ruling in favor of a Christian baker who refused to make a custom cake for a same-sex couple, Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Wednesday voiced his support for the ruling saying, "there are plenty of other people to bake that cake," and "we shouldn’t have to go to court to co-exist in peace."

The backdrop: Sessions has long been vocal advocate for religious freedom, and last October he issued a sweeping legal guidance urging religious liberty protections. His agency had also took the side of a cake shop.
