After the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Masterpiece Cakeshop, leftists threw a hissy fit.
They just couldn’t bear the thought of someone “getting away” with freedom of religion.
And what they’re forcing a Christian couple to do now will make you want to hit the punching bag.
Jack Phillips, the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, has become a household name due to the iconic Supreme Court case over a homosexual wedding cake.
Now he’s under attack again.
This time, a “transgender” is insisting he bake a cake that is blue on the outside and pink on the inside celebrating his so-called “gender reassignment surgery.”
The “transgender” filed a complaint with the Colorado state government when Jack refused to bake it.
The state of Colorado took action by throwing discrimination violations against him.
Now he’s suing because his religious freedom was infringed upon.
Lawyers for Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver, are suing to try to stop the state from taking action against him over the new discrimination allegation. They say the state is treating Phillips with hostility because of his Christian faith and pressing a complaint that they call an “obvious setup.”
State officials argued for the case to be dismissed, but the judge said he was inclined to let the case move forward and would issue a written ruling later.
The Colorado Civil Rights Commission said Phillips discriminated against Denver attorney Autumn Scardina because she’s transgender. Phillips’ shop refused to make a cake last year that was blue on the outside and pink on the inside after Scardina revealed she wanted it to celebrate her transition from male to female.
She asked for the cake on the same day the U.S. Supreme Court announced it would consider Phillips’ appeal of the previous commission ruling against him. In that 2012 case, he refused to make a wedding cake for same-sex couple Charlie Craig and Dave Mullins.
The Supreme Court ruled in June that the Colorado commission showed anti-religious bias when it sanctioned Phillips for refusing to make the cake, voting 7-2 that it violated Phillips’ First Amendment rights.
State governments like Colorado just can’t bear the thought of people making their own moral decisions.
They live for shoving their own ideas of so-called “tolerance” down others’ throats, regardless of who stands in their way.
And their favorite punching bag are Christian business owners just trying to live their faith.
