Colorado Baker Attacked for Refusing to Make LGBT Wedding Cake Needs Help to Rebuild His Business
Colorado baker Jack Phillips, who runs Masterpiece Cake Shop, is receiving crowdfunding assistance to rebuild his business after sustained attacks by LGBT activists.
Phillips has been sued repeatedly by anti-freedom reprobates who have used leftist-driven expansions of the law as a weapon to make him violate his Christian convictions. Even though Phillips has no problem serving anyone regardless of their sexual orientation, he is attacked by LGBT activists who hate him for his faith and wish to force him to bake custom cakes to be used during gay marriages.
“Masterpiece Cakeshop’s business has dropped off in recent years, and now he needs our help. His delivery van is over 20-years-old and has over 200,000 miles. Having dependable delivery is essential to his business. Please consider chipping in to help this brave man replace his van so he can continue to use his vocation to serve his neighbors to the glory of God,” the GiveSendGo page raising money for Phillips reads.
Big League Politics has reported on the continued harassment endured by Phillips as he attempts to express his 1st Amendment right of freedom of religion against a hostile organized cult:
“The owner of a Colorado cake shop is facing yet another lawsuit over declining to bake a cake with a pro-LGBTQ message, finding himself targeted yet again by perfidious litigants seeking to attack his Christian convictions.
Jack Philips, the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood, Colorado, was first sued in 2012 for refusing to bake a cake to commemorate a homosexual wedding. The Colorado Civil Rights Commission signed off onto the legal campaign against Philips, accusing him of legally discriminating against a homosexual couple for declining to bake the cake. Philips was ultimately vindicated by the Supreme Court, which ruled that the state of Colorado had demonstrated “hostility” to his Christian beliefs, citing comparisons to his personal business choices with the Holocaust and slavery.
Now, Philips is being sued again for declining to bake a cake commemorating someone’s transgender transition. Civil proceedings against Masterpiece Cakeshop started again on Monday, with plantiff Autumn Scardina targeting the devout Christian for refusing to bake a pro-transgenderism cake.
“Why not just bake the cake? That’s a question Jack Phillips gets asked a lot. Avoid years of litigation, avoid the death threats. Just make the cake. But Jack Phillips sees himself as an artist, and the cake as an expression of his soul,” argued one of Philips’ attorneys.
Evidence has emerged revealing that Scardina started harassing Philips in 2012 during the original controversy regarding him, indicating that the lawsuit is no less than legal warfare and a coordinated attack against Philips’ beliefs.
Scardina had brought a complaint before the Colorado Civil Rights Commission targeting Philips again, but the complaint ended with a settlement between Philips and the left-wing organization that ruled in the baker’s favor. The transgender woman is now suing Philips in state court for declining to bake a blue-and-pink transition cake for her transition to female.“
