(Worthy News) - Masterpiece Cakeshop baker Jack Phillips is now both on offense and defense as Colorado comes after him again. This time it's for him refusing to bake a cake to mark a transgender changing from male to female. Meanwhile, he's suing the state.
The state agency acting against Phillips lost at the US Supreme Court this past June in the Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission case, with justices specifically blasting the commissioners for hostility towards Phillips' religious beliefs. Those commissioners nearly killed Phillips' business when they ruled he'd discriminated by refusing to make a cake to celebrate a homosexual couple's same-sex marriage. The commission is going after the Christian baker a second time, now for his refusal to bake a transgender celebration cake.
Phillips' friend Jeff Hunt, a policy analyst at Colorado Christian University, told CBN News, "At this point, they're just targeting Christians. This is outright Christian persecution." [ Source: CBN News (Read More...) ]
