From our allies at Alliance Defending Freedom:
Jack Phillips, the Colorado cake artist who recently won a big victory at the U.S. Supreme Court, is being targeted. . . AGAIN.
The government’s actions against Jack are simply outrageous.
Here’s what happened . . .
On the very day that the Supreme Court of the United States agreed to hear the Masterpiece Cakeshop case in June 2017, an attorney from Denver called Jack’s shop asking for a custom cake.
The attorney wanted a cake that would be blue on the outside and pink on the inside in order to celebrate what the attorney described as his transition from male to female.
It’s not hard to figure out what happened next: Jack’s shop politely declined the request. The attorney filed a complaint. Government with anti-religious bias took action against Jack.
The State of Colorado has obviously learned nothing.
Just a few months ago, the U.S. Supreme Court condemned the government’s treatment of Jack. The anti-religious bigotry, unequal treatment, and egregious violation of Jack’s religious freedom were all rebuked by the high court.
And yet, the state has now doubled down on its unconstitutional effort to punish people of faith! They want to make an example out of Jack.
Jack has been incredibly patient. He and his family have endured a lot at the hands of the government. But they’ve had enough.
The bullies must not win.
We’ve filed a lawsuit on Jack’s behalf to put an end to the harassment.
We [Alliance Defending Freedom] are challenging the anti-religious bias of the government agency that is targeting Jack. And we are challenging the state’s war against the First Amendment.
Colorado is in for a serious fight.
Julaine Appling, WFA president, weighs in, “This news makes it very clear that those pushing the LGBTQ agenda will not stop until there is no impediment whatsoever pushing back against their dangerous, destructive agenda. To them, religious freedom that gets in their way—that is biblical Christianity—must be destroyed. This begs the question: is religious freedom worth fighting for? We definitely believe it is.”
