Description:

Thank you for your interest in standing with Jack through these difficult times!

For over six years, Colorado officials have been on a crusade to crush Jack because of his Christian faith. But Jack stood strong and fought for his freedom--and our freedom--all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. There, he won a great victory for religious liberty! He thought that meant the end of his painful struggle against Colorado's hostility. Unfortunately, he was wrong.

After the Supreme Court ruled 7-2 that Colorado violated the First Amendment by demonstrating religious hostility against Jack, it took Colorado less than a month to renew its crusade against him.

This time, instead of punishing Jack for declining to design a custom cake celebrating a same-sex wedding, Colorado seeks to punish him for politely declining to create a custom cake with a pink and blue design celebrating a gender transition.

Jack serves everyone, including people within the LGBT community. What he can't do is create cakes that express messages or celebrate events in conflict with his religious beliefs.

But Colorado doesn't care that Jack has a constitutional right to peacefully live and create art consistent with his religious convictions. Nor does it care that he serves everyone. In Colorado's view, Jack must suffer because his religious beliefs prevent him from celebrating certain ideas about marriage, gender, and sex that Colorado endorses.

And suffer he has. Over the last six years, Jack lost around 40% of his annual revenue at Masterpiece Cakeshop. He also endured repeated instances of harassment from others, including death threats.

Jack just wants to move on, but Colorado won't let him. Instead, the state has decided to ignore the Supreme Court's decision and unlawfully target Jack's faith yet again. It seems that Colorado won't stop going after Jack until he closes down his shop or agrees to violate his faith.

Enough is enough. Colorado's hostility left Jack with no choice but to file a federal lawsuit to try to stop this persecution. He could have another long struggle ahead of him as he once again stands up for the right of every American to live, work, and speak consistent with their core convictions.

Please support Jack Phillips and stand with him against Colorado's unconstitutional harassment!

"I want a world in which we are free to live peacefully according to our deepest convictions. I don't want to live in a world in which anyone should fear being punished for having beliefs the government doesn't like." - Jack

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
***Who is Jack?***

Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, embodies the phrase "cake artist." He is truly an artist turned cake designer, where his canvas is cake and his paint is icing.

Jack is also a Christian. In fact, it would be more correct to say that he is a follower of Christ first, and a cake artist second. His ability, talent, and business come directly from his Creator, and he desires to glorify God in everything he does. His deep conviction to honor God in everything informs his decision not to create cakes that express messages or celebrate events in conflict with his religious beliefs. Over the years, he has refused to create cakes that promote Halloween, contain anti-American themes, or espouse atheism, racism, indecency, and more.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
***About This Situation***

In the 25 years since Jack opened Masterpiece Cakeshop, he has gladly served everyone while also declining to create cakes celebrating a wide variety of messages and events that conflict with his goal of doing everything for the glory of God. But some of his decisions about what messages he will convey through his custom cakes have upset Colorado.

***Round 1***
Two men asked Jack for a custom wedding cake to celebrate their same-sex marriage. Jack politely declined, explaining that he would happily provide them with other creations, such as birthday cakes, cookies, and brownies.

For that, Jack has been shouted down, threatened with death, mocked in the media, flooded with vile messages, and sued. He has also seen his shop vandalized.

His own government has denigrated his beliefs. One Colorado official who decided his case said that religious freedom is a "despicable piece[] of rhetoric" that slave owners, Nazis, and people like Jack use to "hurt others." (https://goo.gl/gW9Gjb) The reference to Nazis was particularly painful for Jack, whose father served in World War II and helped liberate a concentration camp.

Colorado also treated Jack differently than others, allowing three other cake designers to decline to create cakes expressing messages they found objectionable, but refusing to afford Jack the same freedom.

The Supreme Court condemned this government hostility against Jack's faith in a 7-2 decision for Jack.

***Round 2***
In what seems to be a setup, an attorney called Jack's shop on the very same day that the Supreme Court announced it would hear Jack's first case. The attorney wanted a custom cake with a blue and pink design to celebrate a gender transition.

After Jack's shop politely declined that request because he could not in good conscience create a cake with that message, the attorney filed a complaint with Colorado. Then, less than a month after Colorado received a stern rebuke from the Supreme Court for showing hostility to Jack's religious beliefs, Colorado decided to double down. Once again, Colorado indicated that it would not tolerate Jack's religious beliefs and that Colorado law requires him to create cakes celebrating messages that violate his core convictions.

Pushing back against Colorado's determination to persecute him, Jack filed a lawsuit in federal court against the state. He is hoping for a quick victory so that he can get back to the life that Colorado keeps taking from him.

Big Cong to your win, Jack! I noticed some people with hatred left very mean reviews to your cake shop not because your cakes are bad but just because they do not agree with you. So I've decided to donate $50 dollars every month for one year to show my support and respect. May God bless you and your cake shop.

good luck jack philips god loves you, while i may not understand why u did what you did, you followed the scripture of god that was written in the bible and no one can fault you for that. god bless you u have my monthly support of 7 dollars and i will make sure to pass on your story as well, i will email a report i have made of your story to all the mega churches in america hoping it will trickle down from them into the other religious organizations in the united states. the liberals are terrified of this situation getting too much media attention right now, cause combined with trumps success this could be a back breaker for them if the religious right gets riled up, so dont expect for their to be alot of coverage of your situation since the liberal sons of bitches control 75% of the media in my opinion. hang in their jack this is a test from jesus, he will carry you through and bring you out stronger your christian brethren will not leave you to fall, your biggest weapon is to get your story out their and bypass the liberal media, cause their biggest weapon against you is to keep this situation quiet. god bless you jack, and remember god created the universe and jesus controls everything in the universe at all times you are safe brother, this test will be over one day and god will give you beauty for your ashes.god bless.

Jack this persecution you are facing could be something any of us may have to face someday. But your fight for truth and freedom is being waged on our behalf and brothers and sisters in Christ. The godless can't ever hurt God, so they attack those close to His heart instead, but the Scriptures tell us not to be dismayed when these fiery trials come our way, but to expect them. No matter what happens you will be victorious as you maintain the one thing the govt can never take away... YOUR FAITH IN JESUS. I commit for the next 12 months $25 per month and hope this small gift will be magnified as God blesses. God Bless You, The Pearson Family 717 267-1415 clay620@hotmail.com Jeff, Judy and Clay.

I just finished sharing your story with my 14 year old daughter. She just found out that her favorite Middle school teacher was suspended today for spewing hate towards one of her fellow classmates on twitter. This discussion, which included how discrimination and racism affects Caucasian%u2019s as well as non-white, led to me sharing your story and pulling up your website. I explained that if you are white and male and discriminated against, people spew hate about elitism and racism. If you are anyone else, you get pity and support. The pendulum has simply swung too far the other way. We will be visiting your bakery soon. I would love for her to meet you.

tanding Alone
REVELATION 22:6-7
THE BACKGROUND of the writing of the book of Revelation involved the persecution of the early church. This is implied in the letters to the churches at the opening of the book (Rev. 2%u20133). We see the theme throughout the book of encouragement for believers to stand with Christ as the faithful few and to stand alone when necessary, in spite of persecution. As the book closes, this theme is addressed again in the words of an angel and Jesus Himself (Rev. 22:6-7). He gives a helpful testimony as to how a person can stand alone when doing so is not popular and not easy.
The first thing the angel tells John in Revelation 22:6 is that all that John has seen and heard in the vision is "trustworthy and true." These are the same Greek words as those used in Revelation 19:11 to describe the Lord Jesus Himself as He returns from heaven on a white horse: "Faithful and True." It is safe to believe what is faithful and true. The words of the book of Revelation have the same validity as the One who gave them.
The book of Revelation is designed to spur holy living, since Christ%u2019s coming could occur at any moment.
This may not seem all that important to the hurried reader, but it gives us security to know that the words of this book have come from the very mouth of the Lord Jesus. They are trustworthy over the long haul, and they are never wrong or false. When we believe truth like this, we become more secure. Security comes from knowing truth. We%u2019re living in a time of such intellectual erosion that if you call anything absolute truth, some academics will think you have lost your mind and that you have bought into a false notion. But in spite of the so-called wisdom of the age, everything is not relative. Some things are absolutely sure, and these faithful and true words are among them.
In Revelation 22:7, the angel delivers a message from the Lord; that is, he quotes directly what the Lord Jesus says. The message is that Christ is coming soon and that believers are to heed what has been written%u2014to hear it and act accordingly. The book of Revelation is designed to spur holy living, since Christ%u2019s coming could occur at any moment. It should prompt us to honor Him in the way we conduct our affairs and do business and relate to others. The word obey is key. The Greek word used here means "to keep," "to hold fast," or "to guard." Obedience to God is not just the preacher%u2019s job; it is the job of every follower of Jesus. Something wonderful occurs deep in a person%u2019s life when he or she has a submissive spirit and a willingness to obey God.
So the testimony of the angel urges us to be sure of God%u2019s true and faithful message and to act accordingly. It is profoundly simple, yet it is the only way we can stand alone for the faith in difficult times
