Colorado Rules Against A Christian Baker And Demands He Retrain His Mother

In 2012, Jack Phillips declined to participate in Charlie Craig and David Mullins’ same-sex wedding ceremony.  He politely declined to bake them a wedding cake but instead offered to make them anything else they wanted.  The offer was rejected and instead of going to any number of bakeries in the area, the couple proceeded to file a discrimination suit against the devout baker.

The discrimination suit unleashed a wave of hate on Phillips and his business.  Members of the LGBT community accused Phillips of being a “homophobe” and a “bigot” and smeared him and his bakery online.

The court case has dragged on since 2012, but a verdict was recently handed down.  According to a recent Fox news article, the Colorado Court of Appeals ruled that Jack Phillips cannot refuse to bake cakes for same sex couples.

Jack made his case before the court, arguing that participating in a ceremony that goes against the fabric of his faith is in direct violation of his religious beliefs.  After the ruling was handed down, Phillips protested to Fox, “The court’s ruling is not fair.  It shows that some people have more equal rights than others. When you’re not in line with the same-sex agenda, you don’t have as much equal rights.”

The unconstitutional decree from state of Colorado means that Phillips must give up his 1st Amendment rights and do as the state decrees or face stiff penalties.  “By selling a wedding cake to a same-sex couple, Masterpiece does not necessarily lead an observer to conclude that the bakery supports its customer’s conduct,” the court wrote in justification of its ruling.

As part of the ruling, Phillips must retrain his entire staff, which includes his 88 year old mother.  “My mom is on my staff and she said she will not be retrained,” Phillips said. “And I’m not going to make same-sex wedding cakes.  I would like that to be my choice and not the government telling me which ones I can do and which ones I can’t.”

Phillips isn’t the only Christian business coming under attack.  “A lot of Christians are under attack – bakers and florists, wedding chapels."
