Christian baker faces another lawsuit

Christian baker faces another lawsuit

An LGBT activist has filed a lawsuit against Colorado baker Jack Phillips, who last summer won a U.S. Supreme Court judgment protecting his right to decline to bake custom cakes that violate his religious beliefs. The Supreme Court case centered on a request for a cake for a same-sex wedding, while the new case deals with a cake celebrating a gender transition.

Activist Autumn Scardina filed a discrimination complaint in 2017 with the Colorado Civil Rights Commission when Phillips declined to bake the gender transition cake because of his Biblical beliefs about the unchanging nature of biological sex. Phillips countersued the commission for continuing to show hostility toward his beliefs, and in March, the commission relented and Phillips dropped the lawsuit. Now, rather than going through the Civil Rights Commission, Scardina sued Phillips directly for discrimination in state court on Wednesday, Colorado Public Radio reported. “This latest attack by Autumn Scardina looks like yet another desperate attempt to harass cake artist Jack Phillips,” said Alliance Defending Freedom senior counsel Jim Campbell, who represents the baker.

A simple Google search revealed that Autumn Scardina is an attorney. Well, well.

Why would you upset someone who is making FOOD for you to eat? Silly people.

The homosexual community trusts that he is a Christian and would not defile their cake? YUK!

They may not defile your food, but the people you are putting out of work just might.

“I demand that everyone view me as the totally wonderful and perfect person I view myself as.”  Which is a whole lot like making one’s self a god (little g). 

Those who do bow down to this often become the most strident voices in demanding the rest of us do so as well. Maybe they are trying to compensate for their shame at the cowardice of giving in. 

At any rate, the numbers supporting this lunacy continue to grow. If nothing changes, comments such as we have posted here will soon become prosecutable crimes. Lord, help us!

Jack Phillips reminds me of Job: Satan has targeted him for destruction. May God bless Mr. Phillips and may God be with him.

This is not going to stop any time soon. Not until every attempt is made to force all to bow down to their god - the one who appropriated the rainbow to honor sin. Their side has a lot of money. And support.
