OMG, you guys. Apparently, Colorado has just one bakery. Grandmas everywhere are going to have to shuffle through yellowing recipe cards in the bottom of their kitchen drawers to remember their grandmas recipes for raspberry-filled kolaches for Christmas morning. Or, at least, that’s what we can assume from yet another attempt by LGBTQ activists to target Jack Phillips and his Masterpiece Bakeshop.
According to an AP article:
“Attorneys for a Colorado baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple on religious grounds – a stand partially upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court – argued in federal court Tuesday that the state is punishing him again over his refusal to bake a cake celebrating a gender transition.”
PeakNation™, there are literally thousands of bakeries in Colorado.
We covered this case when it initially reared its ugly head earlier this year. This case stems from attempts by attorney and transgender activist Autumn Scardina, transgender herself, to get Phillips to bake a cake. In addition to requesting that Phillips bake a cake to celebrate her gender transition, Scardina also requested Phillips make other cakes that were incompatible with his Christian faith. Here’s a full run down by former Coloradan David Harsanyi:
“In one call, Scardina allegedly asked for ‘an image of Satan smoking marijuana.’ In another, members of ‘the Church of Satan’ asked for ‘a three-tiered white cake’ with a ‘large figure of Satan, licking a nine inch black Dildo.’ ‘I would like the dildo to be an actual working model that can be turned on before we unveil the cake,’ went the request. You can just sense the sanctimonious smugness of people who think this sort of thing is edgy.”
Some of these requests just seem unsanitary, at the very least. Nonetheless, can we all agree that Ms. Scardina should just find a different baker to create her Satan licking a sex toy cake and/or her transitioning cake? Let Jack Phillips have his religion.
