Court allows Christian baker Jack Phillips to sue Colorado for anti-religious hostility

Colorado Christian baker Jack Phillips can continue his lawsuit against the state, accusing them of anti-religious bias against him for refusing to make cakes that support transgender identity and gay marriage, a federal court has ruled. Judge Wiley Y. Daniel of the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado issued an order last Friday allowing Phillips' lawsuit against Colorado and its Civil Rights Commission to continue. In his order, Judge Daniel did grant the Civil Rights Division Director Aubrey Elenis' motion to dismiss Phillips' claims against them for compensatory, punitive and nominal damages, and the motion to dismiss Phillips' claims for prospective relief against Governor John Hickenlooper. However, Daniel denied the motion to dismiss the other aspects of Phillips' litigation, among them being his claim of having the standing to sue the defendants and Attorney General Cynthia Coffman's motion to dismiss the claims against her.

Phillips is being represented by the Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative law firm that has successfully argued litigation on behalf of Phillips at the U.S. Supreme Court.

ADF Senior Counsel Jim Campbell, who argued the lawsuit in front of the district court last month, said in a statement released on Monday that "Colorado is acting in bad faith and with bias toward Jack."

"The same agency that the Supreme Court rebuked as hostile to Jack Phillips has remained committed to treating him unequally and forcing him to express messages that violate his religious beliefs," stated Campbell.

"We look forward to moving forward with this lawsuit to ensure that Jack isn't forced to create custom cakes that express messages in conflict with his faith."

The Colorado "civil rights commission" is definitely on a vendetta against the dude. Everyone involved with the obvious harassment should suffer maximum penalties.

Soon after the decision, however, Phillips again found himself in legal trouble as the state Civil Rights Commission then argued that Phillips discriminated against Denver attorney Autumn Scardina, who wanted the baker to make a cake celebrating the lawyer’s gender transition.

Right, as if this wasn't a set up. They intended to keep sending one freak show after another to this poor guy until they broke him. That's just evil.

Of course this is the only baker in the area! I am sure they aren't suing Muslim bakers in the state!

Good.

As everybody who's been here a while knows by now, I disagree with Phillips' anti-same-sex marriage position. HOWEVER, I fully support his RIGHT to that position, and his right to refuse to participate in it, even on a business level. This vendetta against him has always been absolutely unjustified and indefensible, and I'm glad to see this court decision.

:yes:
