DENVER - Attorneys for a Colorado baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple on religious grounds - a stand partially upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court - argued in federal court Tuesday that the state is punishing him again over his refusal to bake a cake celebrating a gender transition.
Lawyers for Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver, are suing to try to stop the state from taking action against him over the new discrimination allegation. They say the state is treating Phillips with hostility because of his Christian faith and pressing a complaint that they call an "obvious setup."
"At this point, he's just a guy who is trying to get back to life. The problem is the state of Colorado won't let him," Jim Campbell, an attorney for the Alliance Defending Freedom, said after the hearing. The conservative Christian nonprofit law firm is representing Phillips.
The Colorado Civil Rights Commission said Phillips discriminated against Denver attorney Autumn Scardina because she's transgender. Phillips' shop refused to make a cake last year that was blue on the outside and pink on the inside after Scardina revealed she wanted it to celebrate her transition from male to female.
She asked for the cake on the same day the U.S. Supreme Court announced it would consider Phillips' appeal of the previous commission ruling against him. In that 2012 case, he refused to make a wedding cake for same-sex couple Charlie Craig and Dave Mullins.

Ah, the intolerantly “Tolerant” bullies are at it again.
He should just bake it. And replace the chocolate with ex-lax
He would be charged for food contamination and go to jail for that. Mr. Robinson just this morning put out an alert on things we should NOT be posting.
The Gaystapo cannot abide resistance.
Me: I’d at least comment how brave they are to be overtly harassing people that are making food for them. Who knows what they might do for just a bit of comeuppance?
Unless you can be sure its only in the part of the cake the perverts will eat that would be a very bad choice. Some elderly person could easily eat it and even die from dehydration.
Boogers, otoh, harm no one....
Does anyone else smell a rat here??
These LGBTETC alphabet activists, asked this same baker from the previous court case, to bake a cake for the gender transition celebration??? Is it that small a world, that they chose the exact same guy to be their cake baker???
If you’re a gay couple and want some easy money, all you have to do is find a Christian or Orthodox Jew bakery, then order a gay cake. No cake? Then file a lawsuit, and ask for punitive damages.
But I do think it’s odd that you never read about a gay couple harassing a Muslim-owned bakery.
All too “convenient”, isn’t it?
So he’s the only baker in Denver they could find, to bake their gender transition cake??
Aren’t there other businesses who would gladly bake their cake? Isn’t it obvious that they decided to pick on this guy, so they can trigger a lawsuit, after they go into their outrage mode, that this guy won’t bake their cake???
That's because "free third-story building rides"...
And the DemoKKKrat Media would soil itself trying to explain it away.
We need an end to this crap. Sick of it.
Maybe people need to fight back and set new law in this area. Conservatives go to a gay bar and dominate the place drinking cokes. Sue if they get thrown out.
From the 14th Amendment:
"Section 1: All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States [emphasis added]; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
"Section 5: The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article."
Patriots who value their constitutionally enumerated protections should note that Acts 22:25-29 shows that Paul used his Roman citizenship to save himself from being flogged.
Bake your own damn cake, buttercup! Or just go to your local grocery store bakery if you are too lazy to buy cake mix, food coloring, sugar and eggs
Bullying and harassment by the commie left. Time for somebody to go to jail and it isn’t the baker.
Make it his own design and drape it in black, make it as pitiful and sorrowful as can be and say this is the only type of this kind of cake he makes.
“Its up to patriots to elect a patriot Congress in the 2020 elections that will actually do its duty to exercise its 14th Amendment power to make laws that discourage state actors from abridging constitutionally enumerated rights, 1st Amendment protections in this example.”
Don’t expect the Republicans/GOP to give a damn about our rights. They’re too busy trying to stop the border wall and appeasing the Democrats to be worried about our rights.
