The decision follows a landmark U.S. Supreme Court ruling in June that legalized gay marriage nationwide. David Mullins and Charlie Craig had said it was "offensive and dehumanizing" when Masterpiece Cakeshop owner Jack Phillips told them his Christian beliefs prevented him from baking the cake when they visited his business in 2012.

By Shelby Sebens PORTLAND, Ore. (Reuters) - Five Greenpeace protesters who dangled from a Portland, Oregon, bridge for two days in a bid to block a Royal Dutch Shell ship headed to the Arctic to drill for oil are each facing $5,000 fines from the U.S. Coast Guard, authorities said on Thursday.  Three of the protesters dangled from the 200-foot-high St. John’s bridge in Portland last month while two were on the bridge offering support, U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer First Class George Degener said. The case will go to a Coast Guard hearing in Virginia where the protesters can pay their fines or present their cases, he said.  Thirteen Greenpeace protesters dangled from the St. John’s bridge for more than 40 hours last month trying to keep the ship, the Fennica, from leaving the city.
