Stop anti-Christian bigotry

The Colorado Civil Rights Division has again gone after Masterpiece Cakeshop owner Jack Phillips, a Christian. This time, they’re giving credence to a complaint by a person who has switched from male to female. That person is an attorney listed on the Colorado Supreme Courts Office of Regulation as Autumn Scardina, who asked Jack to create a special cake to commemorate the conversion from man to woman. Because of his deeply held religious beliefs, Jack refused just as he refused to bake a special cake for a gay couple back in 2012. When the CCRD went after him that time, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that CCRD had violated the U.S. Constitution’s Free Exercise clause by persecuting Jack for not baking a special cake.

In both these instances, Jack offered these folks any pre-made cake in his shop, but they all refused. 

Now in desperation, the Alliance Defense Fund has filed suit on Jack’s behalf to stop the ongoing religious persecution of Jack and his family that help run the business.

For more info on these complex legal issues, you can call ADF at 800-835-5233.

These things, of course, do not occur in a vacuum. The Wall Street Journal has reported on this, so the whole world knows of Colorado’s continued persecution of this humble baker who simply wants to use his God-given talents to make delicious and beautiful cakes. Lets pray the CCRD comes to its senses so our state won’t continue to be the center of such anti-Christian bigotry.
