Colorado baker Jack Phillips is speaking up about the most recent case that has once again put him at the center of controversy. The same baker rose to fame years ago during the Supreme Court case that he won after refusing to bake a cake for a wedding for a same-sex couple. This time, he is being targeted for refusing to create a cake celebrating gender transition because he says that it violates his religious beliefs. . .
On the same day that the Supreme Court agreed to hear Phillips’ case regarding the 2018 dispute, Phillips’ wife received a call from a transgender attorney asking Phillips to make a birthday cake in celebration of the person’s “gender transition.” . . .
“This case started the day the Supreme Court decided they were going to hear our case. It was a very busy, very crazy day at the shop,” Phillips explained. “In the middle of all of this chaos, we got a phone call from an attorney in Denver asking us to create a cake pink on the inside with blue icing on the outside.” . . .
“We told the customer, this caller, that this cake was a cake we couldn’t create because of the message; the caller turned around and sued us,” Phillips told Fox News. “This customer came to us intentionally to get us to create a cake or deny creating a cake that went against our religious beliefs.”
He added, “This customer had been tracking our case for multiple years. This case was just a request to get us to fall into a trap.” (Read more from “Colorado Baker Discusses New Case, Says It Was ‘A Trap’” HERE)
