Posted on 08/15/2018 11:45:47 AM PDT by detective
Colorado is trying to compel the same baker who just won a Supreme Court case into baking a second cake that violates his religious beliefs.
Masterpiece Cakeshops Jack Phillips, who won a Supreme Court case in June, is once again being harangued by the Colorado Civil Rights Commission for refusing to bake a cake with a pro-LGBTQ message. Alliance Defending Freedom filed a federal lawsuit late Tuesday night against the commission on his behalf, over the states second attempt to compel him to bake a cake with a message that violates his religious beliefs.
Two months ago, the Supreme Court ruled that Phillips ought not to have been forced to bake a cake with a pro-LGBT message for a same-sex couples wedding, because the court found that the commission was overtly hostile to the bakers religious beliefs.

Can the POTUS do anything about this I wonder?
The owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop has sued Gov. John Hickenlooper and state civil rights officials, claiming the state has renewed its crusade by investigating him in defiance of a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision for refusing to create a cake commemorating a gender transition... Link
Masterpiece Cakeshop will happily create custom cakes for anyone. But like many cake artists, Jack cannot create all custom cakes. He cannot create custom cakes that express messages or celebrate events that conflict with his religious beliefs.
This poor man didn’t want an extended battle with the fascist LBGT political wing, but am glad to see he’s not backing down.
I think this is the thing that will actually destroy the Colorado Civil Rights Commission
“Freedom of religion is under attack.”
Freedom of speech is also under attack. This is an issue of compulsory speech - the state is attempting to force him under penalty to utter speech he choses not to utter.
Put a sign up in the window saying: People who both hate us and hate the Faith trust us to make Delicious Cakes for them. You should too.
The Gaystapo was predicted long ago in Romans 1:18-32.
No but congress can
There is a donation page on his website. Donate $5 but donate. He needs our support and if he loses, we all lose.
“He cannot create custom cakes that express messages or celebrate events that conflict with his religious beliefs. “
YouTube can ban videos they don’t like. Patreon can stop accounts from people whose message they don’t like...but Masterpiece Cakes can’t deny anyone?
America’s continuing spiral to oblivion.

ACTION NOWTHE PUBLICLY-FUNDED COLORADO CIVIL RIGHTS COMMISSION NEEDS TO GET THOUSANDS OF LETTERS INFORMING THEM YOU ARE COMMISSIONING AN INDEPENDENT AUDIT OF THEIR ACCOUNTS AND ITS HANDLING OF PUBLIC FUNDS.... .for the following reasons:
According to the Association of CPAs, an audit is a systematic and independent examination of books, accounts, statutory records, documents and vouchers of an organization (non-profit or publicly-held) to ascertain authenticity of financial statements as well as non-financial disclosures and to codify that the account presents a true and fair view of the issues at hand.
An audit also attempts to ensure that the account is properly maintained as required by federal and state law. The auditor perceives and recognises the issues, and conducts a examination, obtains evidence, evaluates the same, and formulates an opinion on the basis of informed judgement which is communicated through an audit report.
Issues such as soliciting subscribers, collecting fees for service, billing procedures, and the detailed reporting of these issues. This includes the federal government, state government, the SEC, Banking oversight agencies, ERISA, insurance and other liability companies.
Areas commonly audited include: compliance audits, internal controls, quality management, project management, and collection and disposition of public monies. As a result of an audit, principles and stake-holders may effectively evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management, control, for the edification of the relevant federal and state governance agencies and taxpayers with a financial stake in the subject matter.
Financial audits are commonly performed to ascertain the validity and reliability of information, as well as to provide an assessment of a systems internal control. As a result of this, each party can have an accounting given on financial statements based on on the audit evidence
Due to constraints and limitations that might be placed on the auditor, an audit seeks to provide reasonable assurance that the statements are free from material error. In the case of financial audits, a set of financial statements are said to be true and fair when they are free of material misstatements a concept influenced by both quantitative (numerical) and qualitative factors.
BR SURE TO ADD: Copies of the audit are to being provided to federal and state governments, the SEC, the FCC, investors, including banking, legal oversight agencies, liability companies and other oversight agencies, and officials of the state and federal government deemed stakeholders in the resultant financial accounting.
The audit strategy also applies to social media cancelling conservative accounts.

POTUS cannot do anything about this. This is not an Article II situation, and really, we don’t want the POTUS to do anything about this. It’s simply not a Federal Executive power we want.
While POTUS can’t, I think SCOTUS already has helped Jack Phillips. A lot of people say that Phillips’ victory at SCOTUS was a Pyrrhic one, I disagree. The language of the ruling was intentionally narrow, to pretty much apply to the specific case before it. It was also written as the Colorado Civil Rights Commission’s denial of his procedural due process, not a denial of his substantive rights.
However, the language used in the majority opinion makes it clear that the Civil Rights Commission was prejudiced against his religious beliefs. The disparaging language used by members of the Commission comparing Phillips to Nazis speaks for itself. Unless the membership of the Commission has changed, the members showed personal malice and bias against Phillips’ religious beliefs that cannot be erased or ignored. There is no way they can rule against his claim of sincere religious belief and separate out their personal malice. In other words, the SCOTUS ruling gives him all the ammo he needs to show actual malice by the Commission in taking any action against him from this point forward.
And in a Federal District Court, that is pretty much a blank check for Phillips to sue for intentional deprivation of civil rights.
That’s my take anyway.
How is it these jacka$$e$ have time for this but not to FIND OUT WHY THE COPS MURDERED A HOME OWNER ????
Homosexuals and the like, together with their enablers(the state)have proven themselves poor masters when given a modicum of power.
POTUS can propose legislation to Congress. He has the authority to initiate legislation.
US Senate can step up the pace of confirming conservative judges that POTUS appoints. Change the makeup of Colorado federal courts and it will change the ‘culture’ of legal professionals including state-level courts and attorneys.
Lawyers talk to each other, socialize together, have lunches at the same restaurants, cafes. There is a lot of chatter back and forth in the legal community. Once they sense the ethos has changed or is changing, they usually move with the herd.
The judge assigned this go-round should tell the CO Civil Rights Commission to get the hell out of his/her court.
Once the LGBT’s lose again in court they will resort to vandalism, arson, violence and eventually try to kill Mr. Phillips if they don’t drive him out of business first.
