Skip to comments.Christian baker vindicated by SCOTUS back in court for not baking a gender transitioning cake
Posted on 08/15/2018 7:24:38 AM PDT by Ennis85
The Christian baker who refused to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple and was vindicated by the Supreme Court earlier this year is mounting another legal challenge this week after refusing to bake a gender-transitioning cake. Shortly after the Supreme Court ruled in June that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission discriminated against baker Jack Phillips for his religious beliefs, an attorney requested he create a cake that was pink on the inside and blue on the outside to represent a gender transition from male to female. As a Christian, Mr. Phillips would not make the cake since it conflicted with his beliefs, which was his same reasoning for refusing to bake the same-sex couples wedding cake. The state of Colorado has come after Mr. Phillips again, suggesting state law requires him to bake the gender change cake. Its the newest complaint mounted against him, which has forced Mr. Phillips to file a federal lawsuit Tuesday. The state of Colorado is ignoring the message of the U.S. Supreme Court by continuing to single out Jack for punishment and to exhibit hostility toward his religious beliefs, said Kristen Waggoner, an attorney with Alliance Defending Freedom, a religious liberty law firm defending Mr. Phillips.

Countersuits would probably stop this.
We should thank this attorney. Why? Because the decision is going to be in favor of the Baker, and this is going to establish yet another president that you cannot force people to do something against their will when they are in business.
People celebrate this sort of thing with cake?
Why not, I suppose, since they vote for these same mentally ill people to become governor.
precedent, not President.
“Its the newest complaint mounted against him, which has forced Mr. Phillips to file a federal lawsuit Tuesday.”
How many bakers are within 100 miles of this guy? So they pick him just to screw with him. Evil bastards.
NOW he should sue them back into oblivion for harassing him.
“People celebrate this sort of thing with cake?”
Not that I’m aware. IMO It’s all staged to harass this man, his business and especially his faith.
Looks like “Bake the cake, bigot!” is still a valid meme after all.
10 years ago who would have thought that bakers and cakes would have been the vanguard of this battle?
There is no doubt that the abnormal sex crowd (LGBT) is organizing this, and targeting him for destruction, as a prelude to eliminating all influence from Christianity.
THIS nonsense is why we need LOSER PAYS. See how quickly the frivolous lawsuits vanish if this becomes law.
Guess that “live and let live” thing that many years ago was all the gay community claimed they wanted was a lie. Surprise.
The baker shouldn’t even have to cite religious beliefs. He should cite a biology textbook and should say he won’t support encouraging further mental illness in direct contradiction to science.
“an attorney requested he create a cake...”
Just based on the fact that a lawyer pulled this stunt it should get tossed out immediately. There is no legitimate grievance here, just a parasite trolling for a payday.
They will not stop until this man is destroyed........................count on it.............even if he wins this one, they’ll come at him from another angle, perhaps pedo or bestiality..................
“this is going to establish yet another president”
One is enough!
That’s their goal.
Now it’s just malicious. One would think there would be repercussions to the attorney.
