Masterpiece Cakeshop owner Jack Phillips created a national controversy after refusing to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple, saying it violates his religious beliefs.
After Colorados Civil Rights Commission upheld a judges ruling that he must serve gay couples, Phillips calmly told Glenn Beck on Thursday that he is willing to go to jail for his beliefs.
If thats what it took, he said. Im not giving up my faith for anything. Its too high a price to pay.

Have we finally found the one person with the courage to not back down unlike the Chick-Fil-A coward?
He should relocate to a sane sate.
Assuming there are any of those left, that is...
I think those brothers who flip homes and lost their tv show because of their beliefs didn’t back down. I thought they said that if they lose a tv show because of their beliefs, then so be it.
Going to jail - very courageous.
I think so. I love Chick-Fil-A, but my tounge will never touch another one. I supported them until they caved. Now they can kiss my grits. . . . .
No he should not! He should do EXACTLY what he is doing! Hopefully, it will give people enough courage to stand up to these freedom hating thugs!
At some point this shinola is going to have to be dealt with or we will all lose our freedom.
One has to admire Jack Phillips.
What ARE you talking about?
Chick fil a never backed down!
Sadly he did. He even said he would keep his mouth shut from now on.
That sir is C-A-V-I-N-G.
That is why I will NEVER eat another of his sammies.
I will send money, to support him, if this comes about.
Pray for this brave man. Even A few seconds of prayer will be the best thing you can do to help him today.
Faggies rule! Holder says so!
Now let the rest of us govern ourselves accordingly....
Actually, even better would be for anyone who lives in the area to order a cake.
That is, if you need a cake.
I wonder if one of the legal charities is helping him out. When a government starts bullying business owners to run their business the way petty bureaucrats want them to run the business, then we have fascism, not liberty.
Whatever happened to the concept of the conscientious objector?
Or has that concept vanished along with the concepts of freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and separation of church and state into the quagmire of oppression in decadent America?
Yet Walmart suffered no repercussions from refusing to bake a birthday cake for a little boy named Adolph Hitler.
There is no basis to bully this man for refusing to bake a cake because of its theme.
I’m sure that the “couple” pretending to marry picked this bakery intentionally to make a scene. Getting “in your face” with their behavior in order to scream “discrimination!” is modus operandi for leftists.
But what of the gay bakers in Colorado? The customers bringing the allegations of discrimination have discriminated against the gay bakers by not using their services, right? Why not use a gay baker? Do they have something against gay bakers? Hmmm? Why did they choose a straight baker? Hmm?
Is it really possible that someone could go to jail for reufusing to bake a cake? That isn’t freedom.
Ah yes. The beautiful boycott directed against the fascists.
We had freedom, but a drug-addled communist promised "CHANGE", and enough voters thought that sounded good to put the election within the margin of fraud.
Are the identities of the queer couple known?
He would have an instant respectful following in Texas.
It is over. Freedom of thought; freedom of expression is dead.
That judge surely knows how to reeducate Philips, as I'm sure he studied in judge school how the North Vietnamese did it to, not the vanquished, but to those legions of citizens in South Vietnam who needed reeducation.
This is the United States, after all. We can't have people thinking on their own or in ways proscribed by that judge. We just don't learn such things in judge school.
“Gay marriage is still wrong, but I’ll shut up about it and just sell chicken”....(Forbes)
The man said ‘gay marriage is still wrong’........that sentence alone will get the PC Nazis breathing down your back!
His opinion is who he is........IF he had said he was rethinking his position on gay marriage, then I would agree with you.
But he didn’t
I’m missing something here. Did the homosexuals want a non-standard, tiered cake? What kind of cake did they order?
If the parents of the little boy named Adolph Hitler had said that they were homosexuals and so was the boy, you can take it to the bank that Walmart, would have suffered severe repercussions for refusing.
I have often thought that if I were in this position, I would bake the cake, but my contract for these events would include a hefty surcharge, 100% of which would be donated to the National Organization for Marriage. I have a feeling that might discourage this type of clientele.
A man’s man!
Im missing something here. Did the homosexuals want a non-standard, tiered cake? What kind of cake did they order?
I think the non-standard aspect of the cake is that they wanted some sort of celebratory recognition of 2 males (or females) decorated on the cake. Even in the simplest form, e.g. just writing their names together would be a celebration of perversity. THAT would dishonor God. Instead Christians are to bring Glory to God.
History is marked by believers strong enough to sacrifice their comforts, their freedom, and even their lives rather than succumb to evil. If the gaystapo isn’tcareful, this may be our first martyr in the Queer Wars.
He has a website. I made a small donation there. And if nothing else, you can offer your encouragement. And maybe order some cookies. ...
The faggies might be hesitant to accept a wedding cake that was baked under government coercion, one would think.
All kinds of things can be done to food that is prepared out of sight. Just ask Jesse Jackson.
Always wondered why someone would push another to make them a plate of food, or a cake, when clearly the latter dislikes the former.
And you think they would actually EAT the cake.......
Their victory and point was to put this man through heck when he refused them.
This should be another place for the militia to show up, and prevent him from being detained.
