Jack Phillips, a Christian baker who has previously been targeted by LGBTQ activists for refusing to bake cakes for them, is facing another lawsuit for his refusal to bake a cake celebrating a gender transition.
Phillips, who is the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood, Colorado, holds previous legal victories, including one from the U.S. Supreme Court in 2018. At the time, the Christian baker went on trial after he refused to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple. (LTRP Note: Christian Headlines did not explain this correctly. Phillips did not refuse service to the same-sex couple in general, but he refused to bake a cake with writing on it that exalted the LGBTQ lifestyle – there’s a big difference.)
At the present time, he is being sued by Autumn Scardina, a transgender attorney who wanted a cake that was blue on the outside and pink on the inside in celebration of her transition. She had attempted to order the cake in 2017, on the same day when the Supreme Court said it would hear Phillip’s same-sex wedding case. Click here to continue reading.
