Colorado Baker Appeals Gay 'Re-Education' Order
CBN News ^ | 7/18/2014

Posted on 07/18/2014 5:40:53 PM PDT by markomalley

A Colorado baker who refused to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple is appealing a "re-education" order from the Colorado Civil Rights Commission.

The order requires cake artist Jack Phillips to create wedding cakes for gay couples and to re-educate his staff that the state's Anti-Discrimination Act means artists must endorse all views.

It also requires him to file quarterly compliance reports for two years.

According to Phillips' attorneys at Alliance Defending Freedom, the reports must include the number of patrons that Phillips declines to serve, along with the reason.

The order stems from a 2012 incident in which Phillips refused a request from a gay couple to make a cake in honor of their commitment ceremony. Phillips said he told the couple that his faith would not allow him to bake them a wedding cake but that he would create any other baked good that they wished.

The Commission said that Philipps' refusal to make the cake violated the state's public accommodation law that requires businesses to serve customers regardless of their sexual orientation.

Phillips filed an appeal of the Commission's order with the Colorado Court of Appeals on Wednesday.

"Americans should not be forced by the government - or by another citizen - to endorse or promote ideas with which they disagree," Phillips' representative, ADF allied attorney Nicolle Martin, said.

I'd be taking this form into the bathroom before sending it off. The trouble is, some of the fecal freaks on the receiving end might think it was an invitation.

I saw Jack today. He has been my baker for nearly 20 years. He is beyond kind and talented. It is horrific what the government is doing to Jack and his family business. Praying things turn out well for him.

Easy answer to this... lace it with feces. That should be appropriate for a gay wedding.

Jack should liquidate the business, selling the assets to a 3rd party and then incorporate in another state, opening the business with a new name and a new location in Colorado, while buying back his assets from the 3rd party. Any requests for homo cakes should be met with delight, and the cakes should be baked with Duncan Hines mixes and canned frosting from Walmart. Money should be cheerfully refunded if the purchasers are unhappy.

This is clearly a violation of the 1st Amendment. The State is trying to lay claim to beliefs that are religious in nature and forcing them on citizens.

The homos figure its payback time. They are deranged and get more deranged by the sex they engage in. The two negatives feed on each other.

It seems the State is discriminating against the baker by punishing him for his beliefs.
If he wins this he should sue the state for a Federal Civil rights violation.

Once 're-education' is established as policy - YES, such camps ALWAYS become death camps to one degree or another.

Americans are just too ignorant and infected with Normalcy bias to recognize what is happening to them on a daily basis.

I now know how it was that millions willfully WALKED themselves to boxcars for camps.

They just refused to believe that it was possible what facts were screaming at them.

Same here.

I read 3.2% said they were “other”. Homosexuals are using that to say they are closeted & really homosexuals, so the number should be higher.

Make it like any other cake, Instead of say, the day before make it a week or so before and let it sit in the back of the walk in until needed.

This madness can actually be traced back to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 which effectively abolished freedom of association (or lack thereof).

This guy is a cake “artist.” All other artists are free to accept or to decline commissions for any reason or for no reason. What is it about the medium of cake and frosting that impels courts to require cake artists to deliver every possible commissioned piece of art?

Duncan Hines mixes are too good for his compulsory “clientele”. He should buy up all the “Brand-X” mixes he can find from China or elsewhere, especially outdated ones, and use THEM. Surplus grocery stores should have lottsa’ them.

Do we have a right under the Constitution to believe what our religion tells us that homosexual behavior is sinful or are we now subject to thought control even when the major religions tells that it is sinful?

For frosting, he needs to use the “Dukee flavor.”

True. There is a reason many conservatives opposed the Civil Rights Act, and I’m NOT talking racism. It was the wrong way to solve the problem, and it left us with a country that was no longer free.
