On June 4, 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of baker Jack Phillips, who owns Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood, Colorado. Mr. Phillips had refused to make a wedding cake for a Denver gay couple in 2012.
Lawyers for Jack Phillips argued on Tuesday in U.S. court in Denver to try to stop the state from taking action against him over the new discrimination allegation.
His lawyer argued in federal court Tuesday that the state is punishing him again over his refusal to bake a cake celebrating a gender transition.

They shouldn’t win. They are coming at him constantly, using our ‘justice’ system, not for justice’s sake, but to destroy him in order to make him an example. They want fear so no one will refuse any of their demands.Don't forget to Like Godfather Politics on Facebook and Twitter, and visit our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
