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.
