(National Sentinel) Unconstitutional: Apparently, the Left-wing activists at the Colorado Civil Rights Commission didn’t get the message from the U.S. Supreme Court in June when it ruled that Christian baker Jack Phillips did not have to violate his religious beliefs and make a custom cake for a gay wedding, because the panel is going after him again for the same thing.
And what’s more, it all smells like a set-up.
The Daily Caller reports:
On the same day the high court agreed to review the Masterpiece case, an attorney named Autumn Scardina called Phillips’ shop and asked him to create a cake celebrating a sex transition. The caller asked that the cake include a blue exterior and a pink interior, a reflection of Scardina’s transgender identity.
Phillips declined to create the cake, given his religious conviction that sex is immutable, while offering to sell the caller other pre-made baked goods.
In the months that followed, the bakery received requests for cakes featuring marijuana use, sexually explicit messages, and Satanic symbols. One solicitation submitted by email asked the cake shop to create a three-tiered white cake depicting Satan licking a functional 9 inch dildo. Phillips believes Scardina made all these requests.
Scardina filed a complaint with the civil rights commission, alleging discrimination on the basis of gender identity. The matter was held in abeyance while the Supreme Court adjudicated the Masterpiece case.
Three weeks after Phillips won at the high court, the commission issued a probable cause determination, finding there was sufficient evidence to support Scardina’s claim of discrimination. In a somewhat strange development, the probable cause finding reads that Phillips violated state law, even though the proceedings are still in a preliminary stage.
What a bunch of sick losers. But Phillips is better prepared this time: He’s proactively suing the commission, The Daily Caller added.
“The state of Colorado is ignoring the message of the U.S. Supreme Court by continuing to single out Jack for punishment and to exhibit hostility toward his religious beliefs,” Kristen Waggoner, an Alliance Defending Freedom attorney who represents Phillips told the news site.
“Even though Jack serves all customers and simply declines to create custom cakes that express messages or celebrate events in violation of his deeply held beliefs, the government is intent on destroying him — something the Supreme Court has already told it not to do.”
“Colorado has renewed its war against him by embarking on another attempt to prosecute him, in direct conflict with the Supreme Court’s ruling in his favor,” the lawsuit says. “This lawsuit is necessary to stop Colorado’s continuing persecution of Phillips.”
Maybe the Justice Department should get involved and slap the commissioners with a conspiracy charge as well.
Here’s hoping Phillips’ eventual settlement is large — though it will never be big enough to quell the sick Left-wing activism of deranged Democrats.
