Colorado Civil Rights Commission Sets Sights on Christian Baker AGAIN. Here’s The Reason Why.

Published

Earlier this week, Christian baker Jack Phillips, who recently won a Supreme Court victory against the Colorado Civil Rights Commission for their discrimination against him due to his religious beliefs against baking a gay wedding cake, has apparently filed a new lawsuit against the CCRC.

This time it seems the CCRC has issued a ruling penalizing him for not baking a gender transition celebration cake. Clearly, the customer in question here, knew full well this man wouldn’t go against his convictions and bake such a cake. Yet, they did it anyway in an attempt to once again embroil the poor guy in controversy.

The Daily Caller reports:

On the same day the high court agreed to review the Masterpiece case, an attorney named Autumn Scardina called Phillips’ shop and asked him to create a cake celebrating a sex transition. The caller asked that the cake include a blue exterior and a pink interior, a reflection of Scardina’s transgender identity. Phillips declined to create the cake, given his religious conviction that sex is immutable, while offering to sell the caller other pre-made baked goods. In the months that followed, the bakery received requests for cakes featuring marijuana use, sexually explicit messages, and Satanic symbols. One solicitation submitted by email asked the cake shop to create a three-tiered white cake depicting Satan licking a functional 9 inch dildo. Phillips believes Scardina made all these requests. … Three weeks after Phillips won at the high court, the commission issued a probable cause determination, finding there was sufficient evidence to support Scardina’s claim of discrimination.

Phillips has now sued, claiming violation of free exercise, free speech, due process, and equal protection. The lawsuit, by the Alliance Defending Freedom, asks for an injunction against the Civil Rights Commission and sues the head of the commission in her personal capacity.

The possibility of a renewed crackdown on religious business practice was not foreclosed, however, by the prior Supreme Court decision. That decision was narrowly-tailored to avoid the key issue: whether the government can force a business owner to violate his or her religious precepts via antidiscrimination law. The case instead turned on the Colorado Civil Rights Commission’s openly disparaging language about Christians and their differential treatment of religious bakers from non-religious bakers.

The one take away from this situation is that we need to keep control of SCOTUS for as long as possible. If the Supreme Court gets a fifth liberal judge, it would spell the end of religious liberty, as states across the nation would begin a widespread crackdown on the religious liberty of business owners who do not want to participate in a celebration of sinful debauchery.

We have, for far too long, taken our religious freedom for granted here in America. We need to stand boldly for this principle and be willing to fight to the death in order to make sure it is protected. We cannot afford complacency any more. It’s especially time for the Christian church in this country to stop looking at political involvement as “polishing the brass on the Titanic,” and view it as kingdom work, the pressing of the crown rights of Jesus Christ as sovereign king over every area of life.

Otherwise, our great nation is doomed.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
