Christian Bakers Forced to Undergo Reeducation

A favorite tactic in the War on Christianity is to force Christians to betray their beliefs. Already this practice has reached extremes of tyranny that most never thought they would see in America. From You Will Be Made to Care, via the Resurgent:

For years [Jack Phillips of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood, Colorado] served both gay and straight customers equally. But when a gay couple insisted that Phillips bake a custom wedding cake for them in 2012, he declined.

Incidentally, same-sex unions were illegal in Colorado at the time.

According to an administrative law judge who reviewed the case, “Phillips believes that decorating cakes is a form of art, that he can honor God through his artistic talents, and that he would displease God by creating cakes for same-sex marriages.”

And get this: Phillips offered to sell the couple a cake he had already made that they could then customize as they desired. They refused, insisting that he be made to decorate it for them.

There would be no point to the bullying if Phillips were not made to feel he was betraying God.

Phillips made his faith priorities clear: “I’m a man who is devoted to following Jesus Christ. He’s the one that’s in charge of all this…. It’s not up to the courts to decide what marriage is. It’s up to God to decide that. If we are living in obedience to Jesus Christ and the teachings of the Bible we are on the right side of history—no matter what they say.”

That is why people like Phillips have to be crushed. This isn’t about perverted sexual relationships, far less “discrimination” against those who showily engage in them. It is about eradicating the concept of a higher authority than Big Government.

On August 13, 2015, a Colorado State Court of Appeals ruled Phillips must make cakes for gay weddings if he is to make any cakes at all.

That’s not all. The Strident Conservative notes that the Orwellian “Colorado Civil Rights Commission” inflicted the following:

The commission directed Phillips to immediately change his store policies, submit his staff to mandatory sensitivity training [including, apparently, his 88-year-old mother] and submit quarterly reports to the commission confirming that he had not refused service to customers based on their sexual orientation.

The intent was not merely to punish but to humiliate.

Barked Commission Chairwoman Katina Banks:

“Religious freedom is undoubtedly an important American value, but so is the right to be treated equally under the law — free from discrimination.”

The Founding Fathers never got around to enshrining in the Constitution the supposed right to force people to decorate cakes against their will. Religious freedom, however, really is a right (not a “value”), as acknowledged in the First Amendment.

Banks isn’t the only idiot involved in the case who shouldn’t be. Monica Marquiz, one of the justices who voted not to hear the appeal, was the Colorado GLBT Bar Association’s 2009 Outstanding GLBT Attorney Award winner.

Conflict of interest anyone?

LGBT bullies have a conspicuous tendency to be vile almost beyond belief, but they are only a cat’s paw, not the real problem. They are being exploited by people whose objectives go far beyond sick sex and cakes.

    WHY do Christians submit themselves to the crucifying Sanhedrin like this? Violence has to be embraced at this point. A few hundred Christian martyrs are needed, instead of abiding sheep. Christ hung from the cross so that we would not have to.

  2. Mr. Freemarket says:

    I wonder how long it will be before Muslims are sent to these re-education camps in order to change their violent beliefs? After all….they certainly don’t believe in equal treatment under the law.

  3. Mr. Freemarket says:

    BTW, if equal treatment under the law is so important, why is everyone taxed differently? Shouldn’t we all just pay the same amount?

  4. THOUGHTCRIMINAL2084 says:

    Some pigs are just more equal..

  5. Mr. Freemarket says:

    “Colorado GLBT Bar Association’s 2009 Outstanding GLBT Attorney Award winner.”

    How’s that Colorado Straight People’s Bar Association coming? Do they meet once a month, too?

    Does the GLBT Bar Association also admit straight folks?

  6. THOUGHTCRIMINAL2084 says:

    Imagine the topics of discussion at that “ceremony”. Sodomy on the bench: how to get more of it. Rotting fish public nuisance or aphrodisiac. What’s in the judge’s briefs and how can you get in them…

  7. How about we simply stop all this crap and feed them to the lions? Isn’t that the ultimate goal?

  8. Auburn Rapunzel says:

    When they [the Sanhedrin] had brought [Peter and the apostles], they stood them before the Council. The high priest questioned them, saying, “We gave you strict orders not to continue teaching in this name, and yet, you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and intend to bring this man’s blood upon us.” But Peter and the apostles answered, “We must obey God rather than men.” Acts 5:27-29

    This has been going on from the beginning. Peter’s answer should be ours, every time.

  9. Auburn Rapunzel says:

    The judge would like to see you “in chambers”…

  10. Auburn Rapunzel says:

    Of course they admit straights. Someone willing to admire them and call them “soooooo brave” is exactly what they like.

  11. Auburn Rapunzel says:

    I’d agree with that, as long as the income-tax amount we all pay is “zero”.

    Government out of my paycheck!

  12. cecil2 says:

    The SJW mentality poisons everything it touches. There is a term for it– Repressive Tolerance. ie (hatred and coercion)

    Repressive Tolerance is a Marxist strategy in which “tolerance” (niceness) is used as a leverto subversively achieve the true aim – which is intolerance towards, and ultimately the subjugation of, those excluded from being explicitly named as a tolerated in-group.

    The whole of the Equalities Industry / Identity Politics / Social Justice / Progressivism / Feministaxis can be seen as an application of this strategy – Cultural Marxism.

    People think they are voting for and promoting niceness, they are actually voting for Marxist totalitarianism.

  13. Auburn Rapunzel says:

    Martyrs are being made even now. The bakers who refuse, the county clerk who abstained from putting her signature to the certificate, the people charged with “hate speech”…It’s happening.

    All that remains to be seen is how long it will be before the martyrs are required to die.

  14. Auburn Rapunzel says:

    This is sort of on-topic. My kids just watched Disney’s “Snow White” for the first time, and what struck me was that the queen used Snow White’s kindness and courtesy as the way to get in.

    I’m not saying those are bad things, far from it, but you can kindly, courteously say a firm “No.” And we’ve forgotten that, it seems.

  15. THOUGHTCRIMINAL2084 says:

    When the Martyrs begin to kill, that is when.

  16. Mr. Freemarket says:

    The association might also want to devote some time each year to recognizing “those we have lost” through suicide, too. Being gay doesn’t make you happy. And being able to use the woman’s restroom to pee standing up doesn’t make you happy, either.

  17. Auburn Rapunzel says:

    Don’t get confused. Islamic martyrdom is violent and murderous. Christian martyrdom is peaceful.

    I’d prefer none die, that we fight first, but sometimes that’s what happens.

  18. Mr. Freemarket says:

    I’m more than happy to pay towards a court system and defense of my country. Maybe $1,000 per year?

  19. Auburn Rapunzel says:

    Actually, they like to talk about suicides a lot–and blame them on the intolerant bigoted hatemongering homophobic heteronormative culture. It’s part of being a victim.

  20. Auburn Rapunzel says:

    I suppose you’re right. Shucks, how DID they pay for the government before income taxation? It’s almost like they didn’t have to amend the Constitution…

    Yes, that’s sarcasm. Kindly stop helping yourself to my money.

  21. Pegon Zellschmidt says:

    Order a cake with a black swastika and ‘love wins’ in lgbt colors. Don’t pick it up. Let it stay on display for a couple of weeks.

  22. Mr. Freemarket says:

    In the days before income tax, the Federal Government consumed around 3% of GDP. Yet somehow they had a functioning government, court system, and military.
    Of course, without income tax and a central bank, you really can’t finance a big war. (FWIW, the DuPont company extended the North credit during the Civil War in order for them to be able to continue to buy gunpowder).

  23. Mr. Freemarket says:

    And…oddly enough…..even in Scandinavian countries where homosexuals have been accepted for a long time….they still have a very high suicide rate. …..Almost like the gay lifestyle didn’t make one happy……

  24. MAS says:

    The harder true Christians are persecuted the stronger the Church becomes. It drives away the churchians and focuses the believers so others can see true belief in action. The enemy has tried to smash the Church with deadly persecution from its inception and still fails to learn that it doesn’t work…quite the opposite in fact.

    Buckle up folks it’s going to get real bumpy ahead. America is being judged.

  26. MAS says:

    “WHY do Christians submit themselves to the crucifying Sanhedrin like this?”

    Romans 13? We refuse when the governing authorities demand we disobey Christ and expect there to be consequences for that. The battle will be fought in court like Paul appealing to Cesar.

    CRACKPOTS !
    It should not take that much effort to totally destroy their position. Of course, one is going up against the jerks at the BBC who produce hour long programs on “Non Binary” – promoting all that LGBT rubbish about “self identify as”.

    Mockery is what these jerks need.
    // link to the BBC program THEY SPEND AN HOUR on this rubbish
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p03r8pgf

    Why are ‘sex change’ operations not labeled as QUACKERY –
    like drinking Radium — did the FDA ever decide this is “safe and effective” , by what conceivable standards ?
    Somebody ought to trace the history of this nonsense – after all, someone wrote a book about workers in some factory painting watch dials with Radium,
    and the horrible effects.
    And why isn’t “gender theory” labeled as QUACKERY and psychobabble ?
    and speaking of ‘causing problems for gays in america’
    who is responsible for 55,000 new cases of AIDS ? Christians ? NOPE,
    it is ‘gays’ themselves. Check the CDC data.
    That would be a problem that is INCURABLE for the rest of their lives.
    But they would rather blame Ronald Reagan. Always blame someone else.

    marriage meant one thing – and still does.
    Stop re-defining words.
    I will and do express my contempt for obnoxious creeps who
    redefine marriage to suit their political agenda, and use the courts to do it.
    And, by the way – ditto for idiots who re-define CO2 as a pollutant,
    and idiots who re-define ‘corporation’ as a person,
    and re-define ‘derivatives’ as insurance
    not to mention psychobabble about ‘gender’
    and the fraud of ‘free trade’ .
    Not to mention Roberts sees ‘penalty’ and calls it a Tax.
    And I have been expressing my contempt for that rubbish for years.

  28. MissAnthropy says:

    The notion of “peaceful martyrdom” implies that there is a sense of morality that can be appealed to in your foe.

    You will find that the Bolsheviks have no sense of morality to appeal to.

  29. JeffersonSpinningInGrave says:

    The other route that has some chance is mass civil disobedience. Just keep the bakery open, ignore the court orders. Surround the bakery with people when the cops come. Basically, just deny their false authority.

    Of course, the totalitarians may well respond with violence at that point.

    “Hell’s bells” are ringing in the Whitehouse!
    Just wait until the “newly” established Nation of Islam gets here, with the arrival of the eventual, millions or more, that is expected in the next five years!
    When the Wormwood says 10,000, this year.
    What he and the val-jar really mean, is 1,000,000…this year!
    Through our unvetted, “non border” policies…!

    While they ARE the enemy of Christ, they are also our mission field. You and I were in their camp at one point in our lives and He showed us mercy, how can we do less? The Lord will sort out their demise not me.

  38. Auburn Rapunzel says:

    Maybe it would make the government less willing to engage in a “big war”, if they had to impose an “emergency tax” to fund it. Our servicemen deserve better than being endlessly deployed to Outer Buttholistan and Nomansland for no pressing reason.

    I will continue to dispute that the government has a right to demand my earnings or anyone else’s, without some really, really good reason, and that reason has to show up in the Constitution (and not as an amendment that says “We take your money!”).

    .
    A CONTINUING TREND – “Re-education” is becoming standard procedure.
    .
    Don’t think Obama isn’t watching and waiting for the opportunity to make this a national priority through executive order – we are a stroke of the pen away from obligatory re-education classes or camps. In many colleges today Christian students are being denied classes, credits, and often face expulsion unless they participate in directives calling them out specifically by name, to attend some type of “sensitivity” training or “re-education” aimed at their particular offense.
    .
    The ominous threat becomes: What latest grievance will the state hold against you that will determine whether you need re-education? Your stance on guns? Your position on immigrants? Something you posted online? Your criticism of a presidential action? This isn’t Alex Jones talking – this is already happening, and you know that if it is a Progressive issue, it will indeed “progress.”
    .
    “Re-education” students (to list just a few): Jack Phillips, Colorado/2012 (Open Thread); an entire T-shirt company, Kentucky/2012; Aaron and Melissa Klein, Oregon/2013; and Robert and Cynthia Gifford, New York/2016.

    Without property rights there are no rights. That person’s business is their property to do with as they want. Without inviolate property rights everyone can force whatever agenda they have on other people and your life becomes the tool of other people’s agendas. We don’t need waivers from the laws of collectivism, we need our property rights.

  42. Lobotomist says:

    I agree. If anyone can force you to do anything they want with your business, you are their slave.

Oh, that’s right, they are the Chosen Ones, the Enlightened, who are free to oppress and act with impunity. They should be sued for breach of contract with the venues who booked their shows.
