Is denying a service because of religion okay?

Just today, the Supreme Court ruled in a resounding 7-2 decision in favor of the Colorado baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple. The court cited the reasoning as hostility towards religion by the Colorado Civil Rights commission. With the Constitution and other court cases as precedent, it seems that this opens the door for services to be denied if someone cites religion as there reasoning. I think this could potentially be a bad precedent for the future, and maybe there is a better way to handle this.

Here are the articles I read about this, curious to know what you all think!
