WATCH: This Is What Business Looks Like for Masterpiece Cake Shop After Supreme Court Victory

Published

on

Jack Phillips’, the soft-spoken, kind-hearted baker and owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop who sees a cake as a blank canvas and serves all customers in his shop, has been through the ringer over the last six years.

The talented cake artist experienced a crippling blow to his business after a homosexual couple, Dave Mullins and Charlie Craig, reported him to the Colorado Human Rights Commission after Phillips’ politely explained they were welcome to buy anything in the shop, but he could not fulfill their request for a custom wedding cake due to his devout Christian faith.

The Colorado Human Rights Commission found him guilty of violating the state’s anti-discrimination laws, which is what the Supreme Court finally overturned on June 4th, finding that the Commission had shown extreme hostility towards his faith.

“We have had so many people coming by to support us as the case has gone on, and there has been an outpouring of love and support since the decision came down. The state’s targeting of my beliefs cost me 40 percent of my business and forced me from 10 employees down to four. But we’re so happy to be busy doing what we do best at our shop,” he says.

“We’re also eager to start designing custom wedding cakes again,” he adds.
“A cake is a canvas, and I’m really looking forward to creating beautiful art that celebrates such a special day.”

The Alliance Defending Freedom, who defending Phillips at the Supreme Court, says that over 400 people lined up at the shop to celebrate the ruling. Some angry LGBT protesters were present as well, but Phillips was kind enough to offer them cookies, which he says most politely refused (some not-so-politely).

Overall, though, he says he’s seen a tremendous amount of support from both sides of the aisle.

“Since we won, we’ve seen far more support than negativity. Even people who don’t believe what I do about marriage, including many who identify as LGBT, have been so encouraging,” he says.

“Tolerance is a two-way street. If we want freedom for ourselves, we have to extend it to those with whom we disagree. Most people get that.”

Catholic Priest Says A Prayer For ‘Unborn Child In The Womb’ During The DNC

Published

on

A Catholic priest who was called upon to deliver a prayer during the Democratic National Convention no doubt made quite a few folks very, very angry by praying for and making a plea on behalf of unborn children at the end of the event. Rev. James Martin, a Jesuit who has caused quite a stir in the Catholic Church for his writings about gay and transgender issues, prayed that folks who were watching the event would open their hearts to “those most in need,” which included “the unborn child in the womb.” Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “Help to be a nation where every life is sacred, all people are loved, and all are welcome,” he said. Martin confirmed to the Washington Examiner earlier in the week that his prayer would contain explicit references to the unborn. Although a hot-button issue for much of the Democratic primary, abortion did not play a major role in the Democratic convention. Aside from Martin’s prayer, the issue received only minimal attention, with some speakers mentioning it in their speeches. Republicans, by contrast, are gearing up to make a major issue of abortion at the Republican National Convention next week. In addition to several anti-abortion speakers, the Republican National Committee invited Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York, to deliver the convention’s opening prayer. Dolan has previously done so at both the Republican and Democratic conventions, during which he prayed for the protection of the unborn. At the end of the day, abortion is one of the most critical issues to face our culture in modern history. The reason, of course, is because fundamentally, at the core of the issue, is the defense of the most basic right we all have. The God-given right to exist, to live. If we cannot…

President Trump Says He’d ‘Go In And Do A Number On Middle East Countries Persecuting Christians’

Published

on

President Trump recently said that he would “do a number” on countries located in the Middle East that are persecuting Christians if he could find solid proof and evidence that sort of thing was happening. Christians in that part of the world are heavily persecuted, mostly by radical Muslim government regimes and terrorist groups, for daring to stand up boldly for the gospel of Jesus Christ. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “If you look at the way Christians have been treated in some countries, it’s beyond disgraceful,” Trump said Thursday during a news conference at the White House. “If I had information and if I had absolute proof — some of the stories that we’ve heard, which are not easy, which is not easy to get — I would go in and do a number to those countries like you wouldn’t believe. He added, “What they do to Christians in the Middle East — it’s disgraceful.” Trump made the comment while discussing the nascent “Abraham Accord” treaty to normalize relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. This is not only going to be a big help to Christians in that area of the world, but it will also help Israel as well. For many, many years, the Jewish Nation has been surrounded by countries who do not recognize it’s legitimate right to exist. Striking this deal is a first step in changing that way of thinking in that part of the world. It’s something a lot of folks probably never dreamed possible before. Christians are told in the Bible to expect persecutions and to rejoice in suffering for the cause of Christ. However, that doesn’t mean we should allow persecution to continue on as if it’s a good thing. It’s not. If we have an opportunity…
