Colorado Court Rules Against Jack Phillips

Alliance Defending Freedom learned that the Colorado Court of Appeals has ruled against cake artist Jack Phillips.

Now, Jack is facing more time in court. More time away from the cake shop he built and what he loves. More time in the spotlight facing scrutiny. And more time fighting for the freedom to say what he believes without fearing government punishment.

It's amazing that after more than ten years, Jack is still fighting for his right to speak freely. You might remember that at the beginning of his journey, Jack was targeted because he cannot, in good conscience, create a custom cake celebrating a same-sex wedding. Jack cannot violate his conscience and he shouldn't be forced to. No American should.

Then, after two wins, including one win at the U.S. Supreme Court, attacks on Jack still didn't stop. He continues to be harassed. Last year, a Colorado court punished him for not designing a cake that would celebrate a gender transition.

The request for this cake came from an activist attorney who said, under oath, the attorney would continue to harass Jack, in order to correct the errors of Jack's thinking.

And you wonder why....
I thought America separates church and state. Jack is a professional (supposedly) so he should keep his retrograde religious beliefs to himself and do his job!

Until then, he deserves everything he gets!

@SW-User Whatever you say,🙄,so long as the Court strikes it down.
@DavidT8899 Yup, as long as you're happy that discrimination depending on sex, race, religion, and sexuality continues to be legal. It's clear where your loyalties lie.

We're done here.

@specman This ☝️ is the best comment!
Running a business is a privilege not a right. When you open a business you agree to certain legal requirements. You agree to that and then whine and cry because you are being held to those obligations is childish and stupid.

And good job making the exact same arguments as segregationists.

And tell me without telling me you don't understand the 1st amendment.

@PicturesOfABetterTomorrow A privilege you say? I seem to recall some language about the pursuit of happiness being a right. Some amount of regulations okay but in every business I’ve worked for we reserved the right to refuse service. Like when I sold firearms. Four separate times I refused what was obviously a straw purchase but I could not have produced legally actionable evidence. It’s just discretion. I don’t suppose you feel I should have been forced to make those sales.

This man is being persecuted by Christian haters. How many years has this gone on? Either you fall in line with these people's beliefs or you will be crushed. America is supposed to be a refuge from that.

@PicturesOfABetterTomorrow "We," as in you and your imaginary friends. 🤣
@graphite Again, that is a you problem.

I was referring to everyone on this site being able to see you are a joke.

@PicturesOfABetterTomorrow I think everyone knows which one of us is the joke.🤣 35,232 (estimated) posts about a country you don't live in.
This is real simple. You either run a church or a business. Pick one.
