On June 4, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Masterpiece Cakeshop owner Jack Phillips, the baker who refused to make a custom cake for a same-sex wedding based on his Christian beliefs. But Phillip's troubles were far from over.
On July 20, the Colorado Civil Rights Commission filed another complaint against him, this time citing his refusal to make a custom "birthday" cake to celebrate the anniversary of a gender transition. The complaint came from an attorney who asked Phillips to create a cake that was pink on the inside and blue on the outside to celebrate her gender transition from male to female.
As Glenn noted on Thursday’s episode of “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” it appears that the attorney who filed the complaint may have been part of an ongoing movement to harass Phillips.
According to a counter-lawsuit filed by the Alliance for Defending Freedom on Phillips' behalf, an attorney named Autumn Scardina had requested a number of bizarre custom cakes over the past year, including cakes that feature "Satan smoking marijuana," red and black pentagrams, and other much more vulgar requests.
"How much does somebody have to take in today's America?" Glenn asked. "Colorado, you really should be ashamed of yourself. You really should be. Why do you feel it is your right to be able to force anyone to do something that is against their conscience? This guy is not just some bigot. This guy won't make [for example] a Halloween cake. This guy deeply believes in something."
"What are you going to do?" he continued. "Are you going to burn him at the stake next when he still won't make the cake? What do you want from him? You want compliance, that's what you want. The guy has a conscience and you may disagree with it but it is his deeply-held belief. You can call it crazy or whatever you want, but it's not about you."
