People of Faith in Colorado pray over Jack Phillips

Jack Phillips is the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Denver, Colorado.  He will soon be heading for a legal showdown as Phillips takes his case to the U.S. Supreme Court on December 5.  People of faith came to surround him with prayer at a rally on the campus of Colorado Christian University on November 8.  It was not just Evangelical or Conservative Christians that came out in support.  Yaakov Menken of the Coalition for Jewish Values and Denver lawyer Stephen Collis who is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon), also attended the Jack Phillips rally.

This will be the true test of our new Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch if he will just go along with bad precedent made before, or if he will truly follow our U.S. Constitution and uphold freedom of religion as it is written in our First Amendment.

I have followed Phillips story since the beginning of this legal entanglement.  I honestly believe that Charlie Craig and David Mullins shopped for someone that would NOT bake them a wedding cake.  This gay couple could have gone to an LGBTQ friendly business like they should have, and made a business transaction there.  Instead, they decided (along with the the American Civil Liberties Union) to put a target on Jack Phillips. Now, he can’t create wedding cakes because he would have to offend his God who calls homosexuality an abomination.

Charlie Craig and David MullinsPhillips would have to submit to the state of Colorado and embrace same-sex weddings and create “Masterpieces” on those pagan ideals of marriage.  Same-sex wedding cakes are not the only thing he will not do.  Phillips will not do Halloween themed cakes, either.  Should he be forced to do that too, or is it just about getting people of faith to accept perversion (and then some) because of progressives that want to push it on society?  And if they don’t accept it, then is it okay to jail and then later execute them for their faith?

When longtime Denver radio personality Peter Boyles and his radio outlet KNUS AM 710 did a remote broadcast from Masterpiece Cakes, I took the time to drive up to the business to show my support for Phillips.  While Boyles has been an open supporter of same-sex marriage, he does understand something about freedom of conscience.    I condemn Craig and Mullins for allowing Phillips to be dragged through the legal mud and be called a Nazi by the so-called human rights commission in Colorado.  These same progressives don’t seem to have a problem with freedom of religion when it comes to those who call themselves Muslim.  By the way, the LGBTQ were hacked off by those in the Islamic faith in nations where Islam is the state religion.  One more thing, Jack’s father served in the American Armed Forces in World War II.

The bottom line is that the progressives want to use same-sex marriage as a weapon against Bible-believing Christians.  They have not minced words regarding their hatred of not only Christians and Jews (in name and practice) but also a hatred OF their faith.  Will Justice Gorsuch side with Craig and Mullins?

It is not Jack Phillips that they truly want to harm.  It’s God, his son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.  That is who they truly want to harm.  They can only harm the Blessed Trinity by harming his people and those who stand with them.  God can handle the abuse and in the long run. He will put an end to it like he has before.

Believers rally around Cakeshop’s Jack Phillips before religious liberty case

https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/nov/8/believers-rally-around-cakeshops-jack-phillips-rel/Leaders from the Catholic, Jewish and Mormon communities — as well as other evangelical small-business owners — came together Wednesday to offer their encouragement at a rally Wednesday at Colorado Christian University.

Oral argument is scheduled Dec. 5 before the Supreme Court in the Masterpiece case, the first to be considered by the high court involving whether bakers, florists, filmmakers and other creative professionals who cater to weddings must serve same-sex ceremonies.

Justice for Jack – Alliance Defending Freedom

http://adflegal.org/jack-phillipsWhen a cake artist declines to design a cake for a Halloween party, the world goes about its business. But if that same cake artist declines a request for a custom cake for a same-sex wedding, he is forced to defend his decision all the way to the United States Supreme Court. Why must Colorado cake artist Jack Phillips defend his right to decline one event and not the other? In America, artistic expression shouldn’t be subject to government control. Jack’s case, Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, is an example of what happens when the government gets into the ideology business and begins to punish private citizens if they don’t share and celebrate the same beliefs as the state. Now the Supreme Court must decide—does the First Amendment protect Jack’s artistic freedom, a principle the high court has long defended, or not?

    Thank you for posting this update.

    I feel there is a nationwide backlash against the entire LGBTQ agenda and all those that support them brewing and gaining in intensity.
    The LGBTQ hatred and bigotry will be revisited upon them several-fold and they LGBTQ activists on the receiving end will find no-one willing to listen to their tears when their over-reach is finally slapped down.

    Regardless of the outcome, this hopefully shows that the LGBTQ jihad are nothing but bullies and that the progressives are only using them to pound the final nails into Christianity’s “rotting corpse” and persecute those who hold on to that respected faith.

    This case goes so far beyond religious liberties and the gay agenda, this case is all about the freedom of association. The government should not be allowed to FORCE individuals to associate with others against their own will. If someone owns a business they should be allowed to deny service to anyone for any reason they want.

      I agree with you Max. Business should have the right to refuse to service to anyone.

GOP plays pro-life card in an election year bluff for votes

With another year of failure behind them and a midterm election ahead, the GOP is busy doing as it always does under such circumstances, squeezing a boatload of bills through Congress designed to give the appearance that they’re keeping their word to the conservative base of the party.

An ace-in-the-hole often played by the Gang Of Phonies when they are desperate for our cash and our votes is the pro-life card, which explains their plan to hold a show vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Act (BAASA) later this week.

If passed, BAASA would allegedly protect infants delivered alive after a failed abortion which begs the question, if a failed abortion delivers a live baby and a successful abortion delivers a dead baby, isn’t abortion the very definition of premeditated murder?

Premeditated Murder: The term that is used to describe a murder that was planned in advance and was carried out willfully. – Black’s Law Dictionary

In 2002–strangely enough, another midterm election year–George W. Bush signed a similar bill called the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act (BAIPA). While the bill claimed to provide legal protection for an infant born alive after a failed abortion, BAIPA failed to provide penalties or enforcement mechanisms to punish violators.

Without those provisions, the law was meaningless and made it possible for a baby killer like Kermit Gosnell–who routinely murdered babies by severing their spinal cords with scissors through the back of the neck or drowning them in toilets after being born alive–to become a millionaire.

While it can be argued that BAASA might do some good, this is simply an election year ploy that falls woefully short of doing what’s necessary to end the abortion holocaust.

For example, there has been no advance of the “most pro-life platform in GOP history,” which included commitments to defund Planned Parenthood, ban dismemberment abortions, and pass a Human Rights Amendment to the Constitution. In fact, Trump and the GOP actually supported the abortion industry by passing three spending bills in 2017 that fully funded Planned Parenthood.

As a supporter of the Federalist Party and the Convention of States project, I see this charade as more proof that conservatives need to leave the GOP and join these movements. Only by reigning in the federal government and returning power to the states will we bring an end to this holocaust.

What difference could it make? Well, Indiana State Rep. Curt Nisly just introduced a bill that would completely ban abortion in the state. In Roe v. Wade America, his chances of success are somewhere between slim and none. But in Constitutional America, where “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people,” NIsly’s bill would likely succeed.

BAASA may or may not become law, but it’s nothing more than a lame attempt by RINOs to save their jobs. The lives of the unborn deserve better than this.

The 10 most genocidal leaders in history

The 10 most genocidal leaders in history

Here is another list article from John Hawkins Grumpy Sloth website. This piece was written by Deena Lyon, and continues to warn those who love socialism siren song that it shall raise humanity up, and take care of humanity for a very long time.

Trouble is when you take the place of God himself and fear that people will turn on you, what can you do? You must shackle them in fear, up to threating and even carrying out the death sentence. You think big government will take care of the people, but more often than not, it becomes a weapon against the innocent and has murdered millions if not billions and trillions and googols of them. We as humans just never learn that we can’t better than or without God Almighty.

Most of the men listed here (sorry ladies, no devil women here) were leaders from the 20th Century. Only one man listed that took power in the late 19th Century.

Personalized Artificial Intelligence: Project Pai hopes to let you do things for yourself without you

Personalized Artificial Intelligence Project Pai hopes to let you do things for yourself without you

Imagine having a digital “avatar” that could do things for you. It could interact how you interact, do things on your behalf, and possibly even replace you in certain situations. Sound impossible? It may not be for long.

Project PAI, which stands for Personalized Artificial Intelligence, hopes to build these avatars based upon your online interactions. It utilizes blockchain protocols to power the creation of a “virtual you” that you can unleash on the web and eventually through other venues.

Let’s fast-forward a bit with speculation. Could this ever be used to create an avatar that is so much like you, it replaces you completely? Could it be used to help grieving friends and family once you die? Could it sit in for you in meetings? The potential here is incredible, but it can also be scary. There was an episode of Dark Mirror that took it to the extreme, taking similar concepts and applying them to a synthetic body that replaced  a deceased husband.

Others, as you can watch in the video above, are even more skeptical about the potential this brings.
