In a 7-2 decision, the United States Supreme Court delivered justice for Jack Phillips. The High Court reversed the government’s decision to punish Jack for living and working consistently with his faith…
For the past six years, all he wanted was the freedom to live and work consistently with his beliefs. Instead, the State of Colorado treated his faith with disgust. One commissioner characterized Jack’s plea for religious freedom as “one of the most despicable pieces of rhetoric that people can use.”…
Jack simply declined to create a custom cake celebrating a same-sex marriage because that message conflicts with his deeply held beliefs. This is exactly the same way that Jack has responded to requests for custom cakes celebrating divorce or Halloween—he must stay true to his faith.
The only intolerance in this case was how the government treated Jack. Thankfully, the Supreme Court chose to set the record straight and protect Jack’s religious freedom. In doing so, the Court made a strong statement that religious hostility has no place in a diverse society like ours.
Jack’s victory at the Supreme Court is the eighth victory at the Supreme Court that you’ve helped us secure in the last seven years! God is using you in mighty ways—thank you. Now, we must keep the momentum moving forward and continue to defend the freedom to live and work consistently with our beliefs without fear of government punishment.
