Remember the poor baker who was accused because he wasn’t interested in baking a cake for a gay couple.
The Christian baker claimed that their marriage and sexual lifestyle was interfering with his beliefs so he refused to bake them their wedding cake. Jack Phillips, the baker was released from his absurd accusations after the Trump administration backed him up and didn’t allow an innocent man to take upon himself any sort of punishment for doing absolutely nothing wrong.
If Islamic people can get all the benefits they get because of their religion, than surely a Christian baker can refuse to make a cake for his religion.
Hopefully his business is booming now that he cleared his name out of this nonsense.
The Department of Justice declared on Thursday that forcing Jack Phillips, the ownerof Masterpiece Cakeshop in Denver, to make a wedding cake for two men against his own will, would be a violation of his constitutional rights.
Philips refused because he thought he shouldn’t have been compelled to do something of which his religion and self-principals didn’t approve of. After all he didn’t hurt anybody did he?
This might pave the way for other people to demand all sorts of things for any silly reasons, and it gives no freedom for people to choose their own customers. But do we really want that to happen?
According to a Colorado law the baker was wrong to have turned away Charlie Craig and David Mullins, who wanted a cake to celebrate their nuptials in 2012.
The Justice Department wrote a brief on the case so as to make clear that the man was absolutely innocent, despite all the arguments against, that the leftists might provide here.
A portion of the brief read: “Forcing Phillips to create expression for and participate in a ceremony that violates his sincerely held religious beliefs invades his First Amendment rights.
‘In the view of the United States, a … First Amendment intrusion occurs where a public accommodations law compels someone to create expression for a particular person or entity and to participate, literally or figuratively, in a ceremony or other expressive event.”
The whole legal fight started in 2012 when Phillips told Mullins and Craig that because of his Christian beliefs, he was unwilling to accept service to customers who wanted to buy a cake to celebrate a same-sex wedding.
Insulted by how they got turned away, the couple issued a complaint with the Colorado Civil Rights Commission and the state at the time sided with the couple.
Surely we can’t accept having to do things which make us feel uncomfortable just because society might be offended.
Anyhow, no matter what happens people on the left will blame Trump for this as well. Seems like he’s the only man held responsible for any and every problem in this country lately. It’s amazing how far people are willing to go.
He has even been accused even for weather disasters. Can you believe it.
Do you think the poor baker should suffer his “punishment” and go against his will? Or should he be free to make his own choice when it comes to which customers he chooses to attend to?
Do you think our Justice Department did their job well?
