'This Is Outright Christian Persecution': Baker Jack Phillips
Masterpiece Cakeshop baker Jack Phillips is back in court today, going on the offense after Colorado officials came after him a second time. This time it's because he declined to celebrate an LGBT activist's transgender transition from male to female.
With the state's relentless attacks against his faith, Phillips has decided to sue the state. The Alliance Defending Freedom is representing Phillips, stating, "The very same state agencies decided to go after him a second time. If that isn't government hostility towards people of faith, what is?"
"Jack had no choice but to file a federal lawsuit to defend himself from this targeting. He should not have to fear government punishment for his faith when he opens his cake shop for business every day. But it appears that Colorado will not stop harassing him until he closes down or agrees to violate his faith," the ADF website states....
Christians must expect persecution for their faith in the Name of Christ Jesus. At a time when even some of the churches are apostate and rejecting the Word and the Law and doctrines of God, we can only expect the worldly and the Liberalist religious to persecute those who stick to the Book.
Matt 5:11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you."
Hunt: "You're not interested in stopping discrimination. You're interested in hunting Christians down.'"
"Even after the Colorado Civil Rights Commission heard from the US Supreme Court in a 7-2 decision, including Obama appointees, telling them to stop targeting people of faith, the government essentially ignored it," Hunt said.
A war against bible believing, fundamentalist Christians, and that's a plain, and obvious fact. As Mr Hunt said, the State of Colorado isn't interested in stopping discrimination. Let see them hit some Muslim owned businesses up with discrimination lawsuits if they're really all about anti-discrimination, and equal rights across the board. Hipocrites.
"Masterpiece Cakeshop baker Jack Phillips is back in court today, going on the offense after Colorado officials came after him a second time. This time it's because he declined to celebrate an LGBT activist's transgender transition from male to female."
There is nothing in the Bible which says we are "to celebrate an LGBT activist's transgender transition from male to female."
Good for Jack in taking the trouble to be both prayerful and active.
