(Worthy News) - A Christian baker who refused to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple said he’s willing to serve anyone, but said the government shouldn’t force him to create something against his conscience.

Jack Phillips, the baker, is taking his case to the Supreme Court later this year, asking the justices to overturn a lower court ruling that found he violated a same-sex couple’s civil rights by declining to back them a cake.

“I never thought the government would try to take away my freedoms,” said Mr. Phillips. “What the state of Colorado did was force me to lose 40 percent of my business.”

Speaking at a press conference outside the U.S. Capitol, Mr. Phillips said he was ordered to either bake wedding cakes for everyone — or bake none at all.

Some 86 members of Congress, all Republicans, have signed onto an amicus brief with the Supreme Court backing Mr. Phillips. [ Source (Read More...) ]

  1. Way back in the olden days of 1987, someone once said that "gifted" students/people are they who catch on the first time they are told/instructed some thing. Average people need to be showed or taught a thing a couple of times, and the "slow" student is one who needs to be taught some thing over and over again. Very few can not learn something at all. It's just a matter of how many times a person needs to be exposed to a lesson that makes the different between slow, the average, and what gets to be called the gifted (or brilliant) student.

    Already, in that same year, our public junior/middle and high schools had lots of teachers instructing their students (our children) to be "tolerant" of gays/homosexuality. Okay, let's be tolerant of ignorant peoples sins. It's not the sins of Christians after all that we are discussing. If it were, we could judge them, and act according to the Bible in dealing with them (which is pretty rare anyway, that Christians or Messianics ever deal with those inside the body righteously.

    We let evil in when we allowed the children of our Christian homes to go to their schools and be taught by teachers who ideas were just plain sick and perverted. Two/three generations later, it's no wonder teens can't figure out what gender they want to be when they grow up.

    No other option? Wrong. No one really needs to wait until half their children and all their grandchildren do not even know what the word truth means anymore before repenting of letting evil people raise their children for them.

    There was then, and still is, home schooling. Parents who care, who really love their children make sacrifices, if need be. Again, there are options. Rules for home schooling (or enrolling kids in private schools for those families who could afford it) vary with the states and local.

    Alaska pays for parents to do the home schooling of their own choice. IDEA is a State paid for custom home school program that works with whatever faith the parent/guardian a child has choses, or lack of faith if that's what they choose. It's one of the few places in western "civilization" that allows parents to (nationally accredited) educate a child devoid of Psychology/Psychotherapy, even their Special Needs children.

    We've gotten what we paid for. And if that doesn't grieve every pastor in the USA, repentence still has a long way to go here. Don't invest in your kids education with money or time, and you get what the pagans have taught them. But that doesn't mean the rest of us do not still have our right to the religion of our own choice. Be lazy parents and you get what you deserve, evil children. Hey, even good parents get a bad apple or two sometimes.

    God ended up with something like 1/3 of His angels turn on Him. Both of his first two humans disobeyed Him and took the rest of humanity with them. It wasn't God's fault.

    Trump is right on this. More power to him the next time he defends our right to serve the Jesus of the (English Christian) Bibles, the same Y'shua of the Brit Chadashah.

    If we do not have the right to force anyone to accept Christ, they who don't have him have no right to force us to participate in their belief system. Tolerance can not be forced to go only one way. Our faith is our belief system. Their belief system is not ours. Tolerance is a fruit of the Holy Spirit, it is true we should have it. But capitulating to another belief system is not tolerance, it's converting, it's apostasy. Y'shua taught that is not the healthy who need saving, but the sick. He walked among the sexually sinful as much as he walked with his own disciples. But he did not engage in their sins or approve of them even while he was being merciful.

    Hold that line, if we do not stand for what is right, we'll fall for anything. And homosexuality is just the tip of the ice berg of perversions yet to unfold. You ain't seen nothing yet. Next, comes animals. Uglies. Unspeakables. Hold that line (in the power of the All Powerful One).
