Colorado Baker Talks About New Religious Freedom Struggle With State

Jack Phillips, owner of the Masterpiece Cakeshop, is confronting yet another struggle with the state of Colorado.

This time, the state is investigating the Christian baker for declining to bake a gender transition cake that is pink on the inside and blue on the outside.

The Colorado Civil Rights Commission, which lost in a 7-2 decision in the Supreme Court this June, informed him it was investigating the transgender cake complaint.

“The Civil Rights Commission held on to that complaint until after the court’s decision,” Phillips said Friday at the Values Voter Summit. “A few days later, they were suing me again. Same thing, just different cake.”

Phillips calls himself a cake artist and that’s why he named his shop Masterpiece Cakeshop.

“Masterpiece says art, cake says cake, so you know you’re not going in just to get a loaf of bread,” he said.

Phillips was willing to sell both the same-sex couple and the transgender person a cake in the shop, just not willing to create a cake with a message that violated his faith. He said his shop also does not bake Halloween cakes, anti-American cakes, or anti-LGBT cakes.

He recalled to the crowd when the gay couple came to his shop for what turned into the Supreme Court case.
