Colorado Christian cakeshop sued a third time for discrimination

The owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop -- which won a case before the U.S. Supreme Court recently -- was sued for a third time this week.
Jack Phillips, the Lakewood, Colo. bakery owner who has refused to bake cakes that violate his Christian faith, is being sued again by Autumn Scardina, a transgender woman, for refusing to bake a gender transition cake.


Phillips describes himself as an artist who uses cakes as "canvas" to express ideas and celebrate events. He has insisted he doesn't want to do something that goes against his faith. He said the cases against him have directly affected his family and business and he's faced death threats and harassment.

The Supreme Court ruled in favor of Phillips last year in a case where he refused to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding. The high court ruled the Colorado Civil Rights Commission showed "anti-religious bias" when it filed a discrimination charge against Phillips.

The commission then filed another complaint against Phillips after he refused to make Scardina a cake celebrating a gender transition. He, in turn, sued the state claiming he was being singled out for his religious beliefs.
The Commission and Phillips agreed to drop their cases in March after discovery showed "anti-religious hostility" from the state toward the family-run bakery.

1. ".....these brown shirts don't let up, do they??....."

No, they don't and they won't.

It's too bad bakeries aren't a popular profession in the Islamacist culture.....

5. Actually, he's more than willing to bake a cake and sell it.

He just doesn't want to be compelled to use his artistic talent to decorate it.

Much as one might expect a Jewish baker to decline to decorate a cake honoring Hitler's birthday.

6. Surely there is a baker in that town

who shares the customer's proclivities?
One might suspect political motives for insisting on using this particular baker.

7. Oh, there's no doubt he's being targeted.

Plenty of bakers that would decorate a cake, he's known for being an Evangelical Christian.

He would decline to decorate a cake for Trump, or Newt Gingrich due to their history of adultery.

8. Liberals are all about free speech

as long as you agree with what they say and they agree with what you say.

Otherwise, you need to be squashed, eliminated, destroyed.

You know, like Nazi Germany.

9. I'd like to see the verse that mentions transgenders.

lmfao.

It's getting to be whatever they don't like, it's against their religion.

Sad.
To be so scared of a make-believe tyrant in the sky that you'll forget that Jesus said to love one another and treat everyone as you would treat him.

Oh well. I can be happy I dropped all that shit when I was 12 and never regretted it once.
