Court Rules Against Jack Phillips
After previously going to the Supreme Court, Jack Phillips is once again being persecuted for his religion. Let’s pray for him and all those like him.
From Daily Caller. A Colorado Court of Appeals judge ruled against Christian baker Jack Phillips Thursday after he appealed an earlier court decision requiring him to bake a cake for an individual’s gender transition.
Who is praying on the wall?
Phillips won a previous case at the Supreme Court in 2018 after he declined to make a wedding cake for a gay couple, but was sued again in March 2021, after a transgender individual wanted Phillips, who owns Masterpiece Cakeshop, to make a cake that was blue on the outside and pink on the inside. …
The court determined that Phillips’ right to religious freedom did not fall under First Amendment protection. …
Autumn Scardina, a transgender woman and attorney, attempted to order a cake for a gender transition party on the same day the Supreme Court announced it would hear Phillips’ case regarding his refusal to bake a cake celebrating a gay wedding, …
The Colorado court further argued that there is “no inherent meaning or expressed message” from Scardina’s cake request, the opinion read. Additionally, the court ruled that Phillips’ right to an accommodation due to his religious beliefs failed to supersede Scardina’s “protected status” since the requested cake did not have an explicit message, “whether secular or religious.”
Scardina’s attorney, John McHugh, told the Daily Caller News Foundation that the ruling was a “victory” for his client and the “greater LGBTQ community.” …
Jake Warner, ADF senior counsel, told the DCNF that the court’s arguments ignore Supreme Court precedent, and that despite the cake having no written message, protection of “symbolic speech” is within the rights granted by the First Amendment. …

The word Religion is being mis-used. A Religion is a God by todays standard. Being a Christian is being in a relationship with our Father God and His son Jesus. Jesus hung on a cross paid the penalty’s for our sins. Ever since Adam/ Eve sinned – God had to find a way for sin to be forgiven for us. LGTBQ is a religion, Woke is a religion, Hindu is a religion. These are things that people worship. God our Heavenly Father He is the only figure we should worship. God was before He created the Heavens and Earth. Gen. 1-1 Then in Gen. 1-27 God created mankind- male-female in Gods image- not in some other image, 28, God blessed them and said to them “be fruitful” There is only (2) sexes Man/Woman not another version. Marriage is Gods idea between man and woman not the symbolic of LGTBQ or Homosexuality.. In Gen. 2: God said Eve shall be called woman, not a ( partner). God the Judge either did not know what the pink and blue stands for. I pray God opens these Judges eyes and minds to what Truth is. It is not really about the color on the cake, it what supersede Scardina’s and what she claims to be and what she represents in her identity is. She personally gave the identity message. Romans- 1-26-27: God says in these scriptures that Homosexuality is forbidden. Satan is using this power to corrupt what God made for good for families. God who gave Life to us, God says these laws must be controlled. I pray these Evil desires of LG, Homosexuals per God must be controlled. I read the story of Sodom and Gomorrah God destroyed a complete city because of These sins. Gods laws reign higher than any Judges laws and He will correct — 1 Corinthians -6-12-13: “Sexual Immorality.
12 “I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but I will not be mastered by anything. 13 You say, “Food for the stomach and the stomach for food, and God will destroy them both.” The body, however, is not meant for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.“ Gods words speak on this judgment. We have a lot more praying to do to our Heavenly Father, His words are Gods not religion. 🧎♀️
Father, I pray for Mr. Phillips, that You would encourage him and meet his needs according to Your riches in glory. We are saddened that the ruling went against him and many others who desire to have integrity in their businesses. The enemy comes in like a flood, You will raise up a standard against him. May we by our prayers and the work of the Holy Spirit and angelic host trae down the strongholds that the the enemy set up agaist the knowledge of God. We destroy speculations and every evil intent of corruption. Father, their are times when we would like to stand back and see You fight this battle for us. Bring righteousness in the midst of this evil decision. In Jesus name!
Father,we ask for provision for this precious man and his business! Thank You for his faith and his witness to truth and righteousness. Return to him all that has been stolen. Cause even his enemies to be at peace with him and silence this for who torments and devours. Amen
Father God, I praise You for You alone are worthy of all worship, honor and praise. Thank You for giving Jack Phillips a backbone of steel that he stands unwavering upon Your Word. Your Word is Truth, gives us Light and is health to our flesh and bones.
I ask You to restore all that has been plundered from Jack Phillips by Satan and to repay him tenfold with interest. Protect him, his family, staff and all his counselors with Your mighty heavenly host. Amen
Marriage is between a man and a woman according to the scripture in the Bible, we must follow his Word.
16 These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
Wow! The LGBTQ community that consistently, on-purpose, targets Christian businesses to force their degenerate lifestyle on falls into this category of things that GOD hates! Including the fact that HE said that their lifestyle is an abomination, we need to pray for laborers to bring them to CHRIST! They think they are winning, but “what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his soul in hell?” FATHER GOD YOUR WORD says that YOU will not put more on us than we can bear! The attacks seemingly come daily and hourly! Please give us YOUR Peace and Strength to endure these persecutions! Let us remember that “except a man be born again, he shall not see the kingdom of Heaven!” Help us to pray for the salvation of the lgbtq and trans community that appear to hate Christians, when they really hate the bondage that they are in! Please deliver them quick from the snare of the devil and his demons in JESUS MIGHTY NAME! Amen!
14 As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. 15 But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; 16 for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.” 1 Peter:14 15. I pray for Jack Philips that his reward is for standing firm.
People, brothers and sisters here at ifa.. remember our enemy, the devil-,who prowls around like a roaring lion-, seeking who he can devour.. and the one responsible for manipulating the people that have all of these insistent demands to have things their way no matter whose rights they are infringing on.. in this case Jack Phillips the baker.. Our nemesis,- the Fallen Angel.. previously Lucifer.. knows that we will talk about rights and our battle to maintain them, and at the same time be loving, intrying to share the gospel with people.. but he could care less about any of that- except for vanquishing anything that God created.. And that is-, all of creation.. and human life.. and especially anyone in the human race that has had the audacity to receive Jesus as Savior-, thereby inheriting the image of God in their souls.. and in our DNA as well. The only way any of this makes any sense- is if we see this as the battle between good and evil.. obviously everyone here knows that.. at least, those who are believers in Jesus.
To say that my heart goes out to Jack Phillips-,is obviously a huge understatement. I mean it kills me watching him being drug through the mud- all these years. In searching for scriptures about persecution, what occurred to me is that when I have seen Jack Phillips in interviews,he has a sparkle in his eye, and of course, at that time-, he had won the most recent of his court cases.. but what is unmistakable to me-, is that he is resolute in standing for righteousness-,and in shouldering the burden of staying on the path of righteousness for
Lord, I must confess that I am challenged to look at my own commitment to staying on the path-, as I indicated in my comment here,.. and what that will cost- and in light of the brief amount of persecution I have encountered already-, I will confess that it worries me, that I do not have the courage of my convictions.. Jack Phillips obviously does have that courage. However, I suppose it could be said, Lord- that you know who to pick-,for these battles.. and you will not give us more than we can handle.. however-, the time will come( and really is upon us) when we will have to face,that often times-, the outcomes of standing up for your offer of Salvation to the world-,will not always be resolved in a way that coalesces with our comfortable life.. even my minimum wage and living on Social Security level-, hand to mouth lifestyle..I guess-,compared to people in 3rdworld countries.. so Lord, I pray I could continue to stay the course-, in being grateful for the example that Jack Phillips offers us-, and learn from his battle..and his countenance, and the joy that I see,or have seen, on his face- in describing that ongoing battle in his life.. after all -,if these things didn’t happen to people like Jack Phillips,what would be the point of Christianity in our life. And most important of all Lord-, help me to be diligent to spiritually gird my loins and mentally prepare for what is coming.. which really means going about daily life in gratitude-, for what you have given us, and as I learn to live the definition of courage- which is being afraid, and walking through everything anyways.. to remember, that as I walk up to each situation, no matter what the outcome is.. on the other side of it-,you will be there.. that being, if I’m still in this life on the other side of it.. then I get to seek you as I have been.. and, if I am not still in this life when I come out the other side of it.. I will be with you an eternity.
In Jesus Mighty Name..Amen
He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?”
5 “Who are you, Lord?” Saul asked.
“I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,” he replied.
So let me get this straight, can someone make me take a job? As a business owner, I don’t get to choose whether I’ll do the job or not? I’m not sure race or religion needs to have anything to do with someone refusing a job.
Correct! And it doesn’t unless you are in perversion of lgbtq lifestyle!
Jack Phillips is a baker who has items in his shop that are available to everyone, regardless of their gender or sexual identity. He is not discriminating against anyone.
They are bullying him by demanding that he customize and create something against his conscience and beliefs. No business should be forced to do this no matter what their beliefs are, that is not democracy, that is not freedom.
Those who believe differently should find someone else whose conscience aligns with their own instead of greedily trying to overthrow the rights and freedoms of business owners who don’t agree with them, working to push them out of their jobs and the business sector and drain them of their finances in the courts by suing them.
Dear Lord God, I know that Your enemy, the devil, doesn’t want Your followers to be able to influence or prosper or be blessed in any way. But Your Word teaches us in Proverbs 28:25 that :
A greedy man stirs up strife, but the one who trusts the Lord will be enriched. Proverbs 28:25
Lord I pray that Jack Phillips will be blessed and enriched even more than before, for taking a stand for You and for freedom… for trusting in You, instead of taking the easy way out and being greedy for the extra money he’d make by selling more products against his conscience and keeping more money by avoiding the court costs he’s repeatedly had to come up with. Dear God please bless him for his righteousness and trust and putting You first. Let others gather and support him financially and spiritually… giving him all the business and gifts and encouragement and prayers and whatever else he needs to pull through in Your power and strength victoriously in Jesus Name. Amen.
A Christian, out of love & respect would not ask the opposition ( can t remember all “letters) to produce a product
that they were opposed to producing.. The Word says love your enemy. There are thousands of other craftsmen….& Bakers
Praying for our nation return to following scripture living🙏🏻
