WATCH: Baker Who Faced Supreme Court Stuns Critics With Humbling Confession

He reserves and deserves these rights as an Amerian Christian, and they’re the same rights guaranteed to all Americans.

The LGBT community largely bemoaned the outcome of the highly anticipated religious liberty case brought before the Supreme Court last week, in which Christian baker Jack Philips was granted his first and ultimate victory over the same-sex couple for whom he refused to bake a wedding cake five years ago.

Philips is the owner of Masterpiece Cake Shop, who the Colorado Human Rights Commission had ruled against when the case was brought before them by David Mullins and Charlie Craig.

Mullins and Craig had tried to purchase a cake for their wedding from Philips in 2012, who declined on the basis of religious objections to same-sex weddings, though he informed the couple he’d be happy to provide them with any other product in his bakery or employ his services for anything else.

And he ended up before the Colorado Human Rights Commission on the basis of discrimination against his potential clients.

Here’s the thing: the LGBT left, does not view rights as something inherent that the government cannot restrict, but rather something the government can grant and restrict at their pleasure, with enough pressure from outraged social justice warriors, of course.

So when the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Philips, they saw it as a defeat for civil liberties, rather than a victory for religious freedom.

What they miss, of course, is that liberty was upheld for all Americans when the court ruled that the government may not apply religious hostility to any case. It also protected the LGBT community from prosecution from courts who may be overly hostile towards their lifestyles.

These are the values our nation was based on–and they’re the values Philips himself holds.

In his first cable interview since the ruling, he clarified to Fox and Friends hosts that his personal objections to the messages conveyed by his culinary artistry are universally applied to everyone who walks into his shop.

“I don’t do cakes for Halloween; I wouldn’t make cakes that would be Anti-American, or disparage people in any way, including people who identify as LGBT. If somebody asked me to do a cake like that, then I would tell them no,” he explained.

These are Christian values. These are American values. This is the liberty we are assured will not be infringed by our Constitution. Philips refused to bake a wedding cake because of his biblical values–but he also would refuse to bake a cake that sent any kind of godless message about same-sex weddings as well. He reserves and deserves these rights as an Amerian Christian, and they’re the same rights guaranteed to all Americans.

Here is Philips humbling and touching interview following his victory at the Supreme Court:

The Systemic Antisemitism Of the Woke Culture and Modern Leftism

They claim to be fighting against hatred, but truth is there is systemic antisemitism of woke and cancel culture which media doesn’t report.

The far left has been injecting Antisemitism into the American political discourse since the early 1970s when leftist African American leaders such as Jesse Jackson, Andrew Young, Louis Farrakhan, and the beloved bigot, Al Sharpton, all went public with their Antisemitism. One would think that in today’s times of wokeism and cancel culture, the Jew-haters of the left would be exposed, shamed, and weeded out of the leftist movements. However, the opposite is happening. antisemitism of woke culture According to Melissa Langsam Braunstein of the National Examiner, fighting Antisemitism can get you canceled. Woke theology teaches that Jews are privileged oppressors. So, when Jews are literally assaulted on the streets by the Left’s political allies, the incidents become Rorschach tests. Many view Jews as victims, but the woke prefer to intimate that Jews must be the aggressors. As a general rule, leftists don’t blame victims unless they’re Jewish. One thing you may have noticed with the rise of Anti-Semitic attacks in the U.S. concurrent with the recent Israel-Hamas war is that Antisemitism is that in most cases liberals didn’t criticize anti-Semitic attacks without mentioning Islamophobia despite the fact that there was no actual link between the two. But that’s not totally new. In 2019 when some Democrats wanted to rebuke Rep. Omar for her Antisemitism, the Congressional Black Caucus blocked the resolution because it didn’t mention Islamophobia. Instead, they passed a generic resolution that basically said that being mean to others is bad. Really? I learned that lesson when I was a child watching programs such as Romper Room, Howdy Doody, and Captain Kangaroo. As for the Jew-hating Rep Omar, she not only voted for the measure but celebrated it as a step toward fighting Islamophobia. At the end of June 2021, “April Powers, previously Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer…

How to Keep Your Kids From Becoming Liberal

here is beauty and goodness in a community of like-minded families.

Socialism, atheism, hyper-sexualism, wokeism, and the belief that America is evil is now the norm in government schools. I saw this coming years ago before my wife and I started our family which led us to homeschool our children. But we quickly learned that simply schooling at home was not enough. Please read the following message from my wife. It could save your family a lot of heartache, like it saved ours. Brandon Vallorani, Founder of Flag and Cross and Thrasher Coffee I began homeschooling in 2000, when my oldest daughter turned 4 years old. Armed with my bachelor’€™s degree in education and a lifelong desire to teach, I felt confident in my abilities. By 2012, our dream of a full house came true. We now had 7 children ages 16 years old down to newborn. Life was crazy but good. In the midst of raising an infant, toddlers, and teenagers, I had begun to notice some serious learning struggles with one of our children. Over the next two years, I sought help anywhere I could turn. Desperately trying to fix our problems, I scheduled appointments for testing with child psychologists and made numerous changes to our homeschool routine. Countless hours were spent in prayer. Nothing was working. I was overwhelmed and on the verge of quitting completely. And then I attended an informational meeting about Classical Conversations. Immediately inspired, my plan was to save€ the youngest members of our family by joining a Classical Conversations Community. I had been homeschooling for 14 years without a support system, and we all needed friends to stand in the gap. At this informational meeting, I learned about Classical Christian education: grammar, dialectic, and rhetorical stages. I saw a Director light up as she described the beauty of the program. They spoke about…
