DAILYKENN.com -- Special privilege status should be granted to no people group based on behavior. Nonetheless, the state of Colorado has chosen to endow homosexuals with privileged status leading to the harassment of another belief-based group, Christians.
Jack Phillips, a Christian baker who is described as a "cake artist" felt the wrath of Colorado's authoritarian government after he refused to create a transgender celebration cake due to his religious beliefs. Phillips was prosecuted by the Colorado Civil Rights Commission. The case was taken to the Supreme Court of the United States where Phillips prevailed and Colorado failed.
Consequenty, the state dismissed the case.
According to adflegal.org, "Jack Phillips, a Colorado native and cake artist, opened Masterpiece Cakeshop in 1993 and has served the community of Lakewood, Colorado for more than 20 years. In his years of business, Jack has been a part of major milestone events for many in the community. He’s watched families grow from young couples requesting wedding cakes to parents ordering graduation cakes for their children."

“We’re pleased that the state will be dismissing its case against Jack,” said ADF attorney Kristen Waggoner, who represented Phillips in Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission. “This is the second time the state has launched a failed effort to prosecute him. While it finally appears to be getting the message that its anti-religious hostility has no place in our country, the state’s decision to target Jack has cost him more than six-and-a-half years of his life, forcing him to spend that time tied up in legal proceedings.”
“Jack’s victory is great news for everyone. Tolerance and respect for good-faith differences of opinion are essential in a diverse society like ours. They enable us to peacefully coexist with each another. But the state’s demonstrated and ongoing hostility toward Jack because of his beliefs is undeniable,” noted Waggoner.
