The Colorado baker who refused to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple said that the Supreme Court's decision in his favor was "a big win."

The Supreme Court on Monday ruled in favor of Jack Phillips in a 7-2 decision, after the couple filed charges against him in 2012.

Phillips -- who owns Masterpiece Cakeshop in the city of Lakewood -- had refused to bake the couple's wedding cake due to his religious beliefs against gay marriage.

"It was a big win for us and now we're just looking forward to hopefully getting back into the wedding business, and we'll see how the court ruling affects that," Phillips said.

Phillips said on "Fox & Friends" Tuesday that he loves creating wedding cakes, and that it was one of the main reasons he got into the business of baking.

"The Colorado Civil Rights Commission took that away from me, and now hopefully we can get back and do the baking that I love,” he said.

Phillips was sanctioned by the state's civil rights commission after a formal complaint from the couple.

Phillips added that he also doesn't create cakes for Halloween and cakes with an anti-American sentiment.

"I told [the couple] when they came in that day, I'll sell you birthday cakes, cookies, brownies, I'll make you custom cakes ... I just can't do this cake because of the message it promotes," he said.

Alliance Defending Freedom attorney Kristen Waggoner said the court's ruling did not address the free speech issues in Phillips' case, but that it did issue a broad ruling on religious freedom.

"It said that the government cannot express religious hostility and that there's no place for that kind of hostility in a pluralistic society," she said.

Waggoner said that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission compared Phillips' religious beliefs with those of slave owners and Holocaust perpetrators and that he was engaging in "despicable rhetoric."
