"So let's talk about this guy who just can't stop not making cakes for people, I guess. Yeah. This is we're gonna have Andrew Seidel back on this. This news just broke. Shockingly after winning at the supreme court level, Jack Phillips owner of the masterpiece cake. Shop in Colorado is back in the news again for something that happened contemporaneous Lee with the supreme court, taking his case. And what what happened is he refused to bake a cake that commemorated a trans woman's seven year anniversary of her transition. I'm going to describe exactly what this because it is shocking, but but I but I do wanna point out. I think this is kind of been lost a little bit in the press reports. This was already teed up time that masterpiece was under consideration, right? So in other words, it was not. It was not that he was necessarily emboldened by masterpiece, although he certainly is now it's that you know he's a bigot and was a big bef-. Four during an after masterpiece. He's got a lot of big inning in before we heard about him, I guess, is what you're saying? Yes, so so here's what happened. Okay. And this is I'm going to read this paragraph six of Phillips's complaint, right? So remember these are his words. This is his complaint. He could describe this anyway. He wants. Here's how he's chosen to describe it on the same day that the supreme court announced would hear Phillips case, right? So when cert was granted a Colorado lawyer called his shop and requested cake designed with a blue ex-teacher and pink interior which the caller said would visually depict and celebrate gender transition. Right. And then there's a throughout the next year Phillips received other requests for cake, celebrating Satan featuring satanic symbols depicting sexually explicit materials and promoting marijuana use. I just wanna say parenthetically, right? All of those things in my view, perfectly fine for you to say. I'm not gonna make right, right. I am not gonna make a cake that has sexually explicit materials on time. Let's that's part of the business, right? If it is then you gotta make it for everybody. I'm not going to kick the promotes marijuana unless you know, typically sell pro, we'd cakes sure there plenty of those cake shops in California. Call. Making a two toned cake. Yeah. Do you really? I mean, that's that's the fundamental violation that he's claiming. So so what happened? So he refused to make cakes for her and the woman. Her name is autumn Scardino and she filed a complaint with the Colorado civil rights commission and said, hey, you know, we've got equal accommodation. This guy sells to tone cakes all the time, and he won't sell me two-tone cake and the Colorado civil rights commission said, yeah, this looks like a prima facie case of discrimination and referred the parties to mediation. Right? So again, just as a little Jordan, be Peterson right? Like this, not a, you know, there's not a billion dollar fine here. They're not Gestapo agents and it was the Colorado civil rights commission said yet. This looks like you just don't want to serve a trans woman, and we passed a law saying, you gotta serve trans women. So you know go to mediation work this out. Jack Phillips did not go to mediation to work it out instead what he did was filed a lawsuit, and here's the characterizing allegation in his complaint. Right? We're gonna skip down. We're gonna talk about the causes of action specifically, but but again, I I wanna point out the way in which he characterizes his own claim. This paragraph two from the complaint. All people, no matter who they are, what they believe or what protected characteristics they have are welcome in Philip shop and may purchase anything available for sale. But as a development of faith Phillips cannot create custom cakes that express messages. Again, I wanna say, I think I mostly agree with that, right? Here's here's the crucial language and and where it why out on the other side on this or celebrate events in conflict with his religious beliefs and it's exactly right, it's that second partner because they're over yourself. God, it's so frustrating you're not celebrating the, they wanna cake from you, it's I just can't take this anymore. And the reason I'm so frustrated is that you know, this bullshit will win because we elected Trump and the court has ruined. So whatever it's a, it's a free for all. Terms of discrimination, and it's just so frustrating..

"They believe it or not. Jack Phillips is once again, being hauled before the Colorado civil rights commission. Please stay tuned to breakpoint from the Colson center for Christian worldview. Here's John Stonestreet with breakpoint. It ju- Jack Phillips won a five year battle against the Colorado civil rights commission. The supreme court by seven to two margin ruled that the commission had displayed impermissible bias towards his faith. What kind of bias while statements comparing Phillips unwillingness to bake a cake for a same sex wedding to the holocaust? Yes, there was ample evidence to court ruled that the commission was out to get Phillips. Seems like the commission which was almost funded for their shenanigans by the Colorado state legislature is out to prove the supreme court, correct. But at least we have to say they're after Jack Phillips. Again, this time, the issue is not a same sex wedding cake about a year ago, a caller to Jack store, asked Jack to bake a cake, celebrating a gender transition to be blunt. It was an obvious setup. For starters, the request came in just hours after reported that the supreme court would hear Jack's case Jack's wife who answered the phone was asked for a cake with blue on the outside and pink on the inside to represent. The callers transition from male to female. When MRs Phillips politely told the caller that her husband did make custom cakes for that kind of in event. She was asked to repeat ourself so that someone else could hear that charging party as it's called been called again, this time and employees answer the phone and politely again, explained the shops policy after be rating her about the policy that charging party hung up, not no time. Did anyone in the Phillips family asked the caller about any personal characteristics such as sex or gender identity? The only thing they knew about the caller was the request itself, but that didn't matter about a month. Later Phillips received a copy of the complaint, charging him with discrimination on the basis of gender identity. Now, given their stinging rebuke by the supreme court, you would guess that the civil rights commission might be more cautious instead of going after Jack Phillips. Again, while this complaint involves different party in a different set of allege facts, it's still the same commission, and it's still the same Jack Phillips. It requires an. Out of this world naievety to believe that this time they will treat Phillips and his beliefs with the respect they deserve, but not only was the commission undeterred by its loss at the supreme court. It actually cited the masterpiece cake shop decision which they lost in their new charge against Phillips. But you have to hear how they quoted the entire passage from the decision quoted by the commission reads like this while it's unexceptionable that Colorado law can protect gay persons and acquiring products and services on the same terms and conditions as are offered other members of the public. The law must be applied in a manner that is neutral toward religion, but the commission omitted the word while and the entire second part of the quote that the law must be applied in a manner that's neutral toward religion. In other words, the commission selectively quoted the passage in such a way as to turn the supreme court's meaning on its head. This kind of bad faith. Reading of the supreme court opinion proves that the Colorado legislature should have eliminated the civil rights commission while it had the chance. Yesterday, the alliance defending freedom filed suit against the commission on Jack's behalf claiming that the commission has systematically acted in a way that violates Phillips first amendment rights ADS doing his job, and we have to do ours to pray, certainly for victory in the courts, but even more for strength and grace for Jack his family and his ADF team. He didn't ask to be a champion of religious freedom in this poster bergeford world, but he's fulfilled that role with grace and courage. And for that, he deserves our gratitude, our prayers, and he deserves to be left alone once and for all for breakpoint. I'm John Stonestreet.

"Basic point and she goes on about this and and let me just read part of the letter because i think it makes a very good point she says i think the bigger is not backed up by freedom of religion because gay weddings are legal and now the law of the land they can disagree with it all they want and say their religion is against it and they don't condone it but i don't think they have the legal right to not serve the customer if the wedding is indeed legal win this mean that let's say a baker who didn't believe in multiracial weddings would have the right to not bake the cake for that wedding would they have the right to not baker cake for a white bride and black uh groom because their religion is against that or what about a jew marrying a christian or another religion someone could argue that their religion doesn't believe in that how about a husidic baker refusing to service some jewish muslim wedding should that be allowed it's against their religion as an too slippery slope and people can then review service to others with this argument if it's legal in this country no matter what the individuals feelings of beliefs on it they need to serve their customer you're right and by the way jack phillips thinks here right he's not talking about not serving someone because he is guilty or not what he's talking about is compelled speech compelled self expression he takes his bakery art very seriously does very elaborate decorated caixin he had a very successful business srs called masterpiece cakes and what he is saying is that the government shouldn't force me compel me to express a message i don't want to express and i choose not to now if he took the money and said oh i decide i can't wait then you'd be you you have to if you take the money he is deciding as an artist that there are certain kinds of art that he wants to make in certain kinds of he doesn't wanna make and again it will we would hold it very very clear that if somebody was asked to put a swastika on a cake and he chose not to okay so this is not to say that a gay wedding cake is equivalent to a swastika it's not but what is the harm in allowing people to make their own decisions about how they expressed themselves.
