Supreme Court Rules the Right Way in Jack Phillips Case
(Harrisburg) – Today the US Supreme Court handed down the right decision in protecting the First Amendment rights of Colorado baker Jack Phillips. In a 7-2 decision the US Supreme Court ruled that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission had displayed anti-Christian bias towards Jack Phillips in their dealings with him in the complaint filed by two homosexual men when Phillips refused to bake a custom cake for their same-sex “wedding.” As noted by the American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), a statewide organization advocating for natural one man one woman marriage, same-sex so-called marriage was not even legal in Colorado when the complaint was filed against Phillips.
“The Court’s decision sided with Jack Phillips because of comments made by some of the commissioners. It was a narrow decision and did not answer the overbearing question of religious rights vs. so-called gay-rights. It would be quite clear to Fisher Ames, the primary author of the First Amendment, and the other Founding Fathers that a Christian business owner would be protected by the First Amendment and have the right to refuse to provide services that would appear that they were advocating sinful lifestyles,” commented Diane Gramley, president of the AFA of PA.
Jack Phillips can go back to his business of baking wedding cakes, but other religious liberty cases are pending. Christian business owners have been fined, lost their business or forced to close because of hostilities directed towards them by homosexual activists. It is becoming increasingly evident that homosexual activists, who said all they wanted was the “right to marry the one they love,” will not be satisfied until they have forced every American to celebrate their lifestyle, remain silent about their opposition or face hate crime charges if they voice opposition.
