Christian baker, Jack Phillips, already won a case at the Supreme Court over his refusal to bake a gay wedding cake.
Now? The Colorado state government is going after him again… after Phillips refused to make a cake for a “transgender ceremony.”
Through his lawyers, Phillips, who won a 7-2 Supreme Court victory earlier this year that protected his right to not bake a cake for a gay wedding because of his Christian faith, claims that Colorado is unfairly targeting him.
“The state of Colorado is ignoring the message of the U.S. Supreme Court by continuing to single out Jack for punishment and to exhibit hostility toward his religious beliefs,” said Kristen Waggoner of Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), the nonprofit Christian law firm that’s defending Phillips.
“Even though Jack serves all customers and simply declines to create custom cakes that express messages or celebrate events in violation of his deeply held beliefs, the government is intent on destroying him—something the Supreme Court has already told it not to do,” she added.
Phillips has made it clear that he serves anyone–gay, straight, or transgender–who wants to buy a cake in his store. But he refuses to custom-make a cake that promotes a message that goes against his religious beliefs–including holidays like Halloween.
