Christian Baker Commanded to Bake Cakes for Homosexual “Weddings”

Next time someone flippantly says, “It’s a free country,” remind them of this:

A family owned bakery has been ordered to make wedding cakes for gay couples and guarantee that its staff be given comprehensive training on Colorado’s anti-discrimination laws after the state’s Civil Rights Commission determined the Christian baker violated the law by refusing to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple.

Jack Phillips, the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, in Lakewood, Colorado was directed to change his store policies immediately and force his staff to attend the training sessions. For the next two years, Phillips will also be required to submit quarterly reports to the commission to confirm that he has not turned away customers based on their sexual orientation.

The whole purpose of this deliberate degradation is to punish Phillips for his Christian beliefs, according to which participating in a homosexual “marriage” is blasphemy. By forcing him to violate his faith, the thugs imposing this confirm that the erstwhile Land of the Free — a country founded by religious refugees seeking liberty — has degenerated into tyranny.

The good news is Phillips has not capitulated to this dictatorship of the depraved. He does not appear likely to comply, even if that means no longer baking cakes. Although the legal costs may drive him out of business in the end, he is considering an appeal.

And should the highest court in the land force Jack to do the bidding of homosexuals?

“There’s civil disobedience,” Phillips told me. “We’ll see what happens. I’m not giving up my faith. Too many people have died for this faith to give it up that easily.”

He could add that too many people died for America to give up being American that easily.

On tips from Mr. Mentalo and Wiggins.

    One of the basic social rules is to not piss off ( or on in this case ) people that prepare your food.

    I have long supported GLBT issues, including gay marriage, and have a number of close GLBT friends. This is not about how you play with your plumbing, or who you marry, or how you relate to your gender.

    This is about freedom. I don’t believe in discrimination based on status. You should be required to rent a motel room or prepare a meal off your standard menu, or change a tire for anyone. I draw the line at creative works. Should a gay baker be required to decorate a cake with “Homosexuality is a sin,” or a Jewish baker be required to bake a swastika cake for Hitler’s birthday? Then neither should a person who opposes gay marriage be required to photograph one, or decorate a cake extolling one.

    The problem I have with gay activists is not that they are gay. It is that they are damned Liberal scum.

    He is going to be policed to make sure he doesn’t discriminate against homosexuals in future. What do you think’s going to happen now?
    Scores of homosexuals will be lining up in his bakery demanding that cakes be made for them, ready to report him and sue him if he doesn’t.

    And they can ask for filthier and filthier cakes until he’s forced to become a pornographic bakery. What’s he going to do – say, “No, I won’t bake a cake with the two grooms on top performing a pornographic act”? Anything he says now will be labeled discrimination. He won’t be allowed any line at all.

    Unfortunately, this seems to be the natural evolution of the creation of a secular nation. In creating the world’s first truly secular State, the Founders were confronted with a huge obstacle — religion. The solution was to recognize so-called “religious liberty” in the 1st Amendment, which effectively neutralized the power of religious doctrine in the public square, forever relegating religious law beneath secular law, rendering it powerless. It also had the effect of equalizing all religions and religious claims, such that all religions are leveled, and no single religion can lay claim to a greater understanding of truth. A secular nation is effectively an atheistic nation in terms of policy, and ours has evolved, necessarily, from secularism to relativism and now to the wider acceptance of cultural and political atheism. Thus, we now call “lawful” all manner of things that violate both Natural and Christian law (the lawful taking of innocent human life being obvious, and same-sex “marriage” (and the coercive impositions that follow) will indeed be found to be Constitutional). Such is the inevitable outcome of deliberately rejecting Truth in the pursuit of liberty. We are witnessing today the playing out of a Godless Constitution and the inescapable fact that, absent Truth, genuine liberty cannot be sustained.

    This. 100%.

  19. JeffersonSpinningInGrave says:

    This, mostly. Without freedom of association, there is no true freedom. So I don’t think “creative works” is a proper criterion. I suppose some restrictions might be reasonable. For example, if the only hospital in town is private, I don’t think they should be able to turn people away. But for a wedding cake, which you can buy anywhere (and, in fact, which the couple in question did buy elsewhere)? It seems pretty damn childish for the guys to go out of their way to punish the poor baker for daring to not approve of them.

    You just identified the problem. When you support anything that the left takes for their own, even if you have good intentions personally, it devolves into this. These people do NOT want to keep it to themselves or in their bedroom. They want their perversion CELEBRATED, as a source of PRIDE, taught to children as JUST ANOTHER LIFESTYLE.

    Unfortunately, we’ve all learned the hard way that you can NOT coexist with this stuff. They won’t let you. Oh, they START with “getting along” and “be inclusive” as a way to infect the host. Then this crap starts and before long…

    …well, I will say it again, you CAN NOT NEGOTIATE WITH GANGRENE.

    In the free enterprise system, if you don’t like the service you get at one place, you go somewhere else. And if you can’t get what you want anywhere, you can start you own business or do it yourself that one time. THAT IS WHAT MADE AMERICA GREAT.
    Remember the old saying: “:Don’t make a FEDERAL CASE out of it”.

    There is so much wrong historically in your post, I don’t know where to begin.
    I suggest that YOU start by reading about “divine rights of kings” and “state religions”. American founders wanted no part of that, they wanted FREEDOM OF WORSHIP.

  32. HigherCalling says:

    KHarn,
    “Freedom of worship” is the talking point of today’s anti-religious Left. That is exactly what they seek — to relegate religion to a worship-only, fully private form of expression, excluding it entirely from the public square. Unfortunately, they have a point that quite possibly goes back to the Founding — the same point you just made, and the general point I made in my first post.

    I agree and I have no wish to attack ‘MannieP’ but that person is very wrong.
    There can be no ‘freedom’ to celebrate perversion, we can all see that now.
    Once the turd is in the punch bowl it makes no difference if it actively WANTS to harm you or not. I’d like to think that most turds really don’t want to be in the punch bowl.
    I’d hate my vices & weaknesses to be spread or shared or multiplied or ‘accepted for what they are’ by more people.

    Should a Jewish baker be forced to bake a cake for a Neo Nazi celebration? Should a vegan bakery be forced to bake a cake to celebrate a baby seal hunt? Should a homosexual baker be forced to bake a cake for the Westboro Baptist Church? Should a Muslim baker be forced to make someone a bacon cake?

    Forcing someone to violate their beliefs, even if you don’t believe in them or think they’re silly, when you could easily go to another business that would accommodate you makes you a grade A douche bag.

    They would like that. It’s right up their alley. ahem…
    I would bake the cake they want, then while delivering to their reception, I would trip and fall in the parking lot. Splattered queer cake all over the place. “sorry guys. no charge” Bye now.

    Through the years I have avoided dealing with undesirable clients and tenants by having a “waiting list”. For many years, I truly was booked solid and my houses were all rented, so I was not lying; but, there were a number of occasions where I was very happy to be able to tell someone that I had a waiting list and not to have to deal with them.

    Just charge them a disproportionate amount for a cake order. Surely you can charge what ever you wish in a free market, thus if the customer feels it’s to expensive, they can go else where.
