Once again Masterpiece Cakeshop owner Jack Phillips has beaten the Christian-banning law in Colorado. This time Phillips has gotten the state to drop its latest harassment campaign against his business.
Phillips reached an agreement with the Centennial State to drop his lawsuit against the state in exchange for Colorado ending its most current persecution of his religious principles.
“The Colorado Civil Rights Commission will dismiss administrative action against Phillips, and Phillips will withdraw his federal court case against the case,” according to Fox 31.
“After careful consideration of the facts, both sides agreed it was not in anyone’s best interest to move forward with these cases,” Colorado Democrat Attorney General Phil Weiser said.
“The larger constitutional issues might well be decided down the road, but these cases will not be the vehicle for resolving them,” Weiser added. “Equal justice for all will continue to be a core value that we will uphold as we enforce our state’s and nation’s civil rights laws.”
This Christian-hating state commission voted unanimously to get Phillips out of its hair.
The radial gay lobby has been targeting Phillips for his religious principles for years. Every time they finish one case that he wins, they get this un-American commission to attack him all over again.
As Fox reports:
In June, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of Phillips, who owns Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood. Phillips had refused to make a wedding cake for a Denver gay couple in 2012.
The high court ruled that Phillips did not violate the state’s anti-discrimination law for refusing to make the wedding cake for Charlie Craid and David Mullins.
In August, Phillips sued then-Gov. John Hickenlooper and the commission, saying the state had renewed its religious persecution by investigating the Lakewood baker despite the U.S. Supreme Court ruling.
This is no less than a state-sanctioned attack on freedom of religion all in thrall to the radical gay lobby.
It is thoroughly un-American.
