In 2018, Jack Phillips—the Christian Colorado baker who was punished due to his unwillingness to bake a custom cake for a same-sex “wedding”—won his case at the U.S. Supreme Court. Unfortunately, the Left is not done trying to punish him for living out his Christian beliefs.
According to Fox Carolina, Phllips is “suing to try to stop the state from taking action against him over [a] new discrimination allegation.” The Colorado Civil Rights Commission has once again ruled that Phillips committed a discriminatory act; this time, Phillips declined to design and bake a cake to help celebrate a so-called “gender transition.” Jim Campbell of Alliance Defending Freedom, who represents Phillips, says Phillips is “just a guy who is trying to get back to life. The problem is the state of Colorado won’t let him.” (The same complainant has also requested that Phillips bake a cake depicting Satan smoking marijuana.) Another court appearance has been scheduled for February.
The continued harassment of Jack Phillips by activists and by the State of Colorado demonstrates the unfortunate reality that some on the Left do not believe in religious freedom or free expression.
