Baker Jack Phillips Back in Court AGAIN Over Christian Beliefs: ‘No American Should Be Bullied’

The Colorado Supreme Court is hearing arguments Tuesday from a local baker who declined to make a cake celebrating a gender transition and now wants to ensure that he does not have to express messages that violate his Christian beliefs.

Colorado cake artist Jack Phillips is the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, and as CBN News has reported over the years, he has been dragged to court numerous times because of his biblical convictions. In 2017, Autumn Scardina called Phillips’ suburban Denver cake shop requesting a birthday cake that had blue frosting on the outside and was pink inside to celebrate a gender transition.

Jack said he couldn’t bake the cake due to his religious convictions. 

Scardina, an attorney, took Jack to court over his decision and a Colorado Court of Appeals sided with her, ruling that the cake, which did not have any writing, was not a form of protected speech. 

The Alliance Defending Freedom, a non-profit legal group, is asking the Colorado Supreme Court to reconsider the case after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of Colorado graphic artist Lorie Smith last year when she declined to design wedding websites for same-sex couples because it violated her religious beliefs.
