When Colorado cake artist Jack Phillips opened his cakeshop 24 years ago, he wanted to do more than just provide for his family and his employees. He wanted to serve his community, share his artistic talents, and honor God through his work every day.
He even named his business Masterpiece Cakeshop. The name was inspired at least in part by his favorite Bible verse, Ephesians 2:10, which says, “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.”
As Jack says, “We don’t want God to be part of our lives on just Sundays. We want Him to be part of our lives every day.”
That’s why Jack was shocked when not just his business, but his faith became the subject of vicious attacks and threats of government punishment when his conscience would not allow him to design a custom cake for a same-sex wedding.
The government should not force anyone to create art that conflicts with their conscience. Yet that is exactly what the government did to Jack. And if the government has the power to tell you what to believe on the subject of marriage, it has that same power over all issues.
That’s un-American. And terrifying.
Jack’s case will be argued before the U.S. Supreme Court in early December. Join Jack Phillips, Colorado Christian University, Alliance Defending Freedom, and faith leaders from around Colorado for a rally in support of religious freedom on November 8, 2017 at 10:00am at the Colorado Christian University Event Center.
Let’s send a message to Washington, D.C. that religious freedom needs to be protected!
