The details that surround Jack Phillips’ case, which is going to the Supreme Court, is indicative of a society that is not only watching our 1st Amendment religious freedoms slipping away, but that’s encouraging it in many ways. We are electing people who do not believe in federalism, freedom, or the Constitution.
Forcing their “morality” onto everyone is more important than defending our rights as Americans.
Phillips is a Christian. He has been attacked by Colorado politicians for his unwillingness to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding. Last month, he was given another request: bake a cake to celebrate the birth of Satan.
Check out the story on Daily Signal:
“The request for Jack to make a cake celebrating Satan proves the danger of using these kinds of laws to force people in the artistic profession to create artwork that violates their beliefs,” Jeremy Tedesco, a senior counsel at Alliance Defending Freedom, told The Daily Signal in a phone interview.
“The request from the Satanists is essentially the same as the request that Jack Phillips received from the same-sex couple to create a cake that violates his beliefs, because in both instances, the requester can say the law covers my request. For the Satanists, they’re going to say it’s religious discrimination for you to say no to a cake that I’m requesting because of my protected status.”
