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.

We stand with you in prayer, in support and know that you are encouraging other believers to stand in boldness just as Paul's prison bonds encouraged other believers to walk in boldness. Thank you for your faithfulness to the father. I can hear him saying to you, Well done good and faithful servant! I'm honored and priviledged to co labor with you. I hope this donation will encourage you. Your brother in Christ. Love from God's heart, Mark Brown

I'm inspired and touched... Each one of us would become a masterpiece in our master's hand when we let Him work on us. "He is the potter and I'm the clay." May He turn us into useful vessels and serve His eternal purpose. Like the wonderous sweet cake under Jack's hand, so will be everything under the Almighty.

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,
You are a simple man, with the heart of a lion. You are the American equivalent of the student standing in front of the communist Chinese tank in Tiananmen Square. You have inspired millions, and as you resist the bullying and intimidation from the cowards in the state government of Colorado and their "flying monkeys", we all pray for you and cheer you on! All over the world, we have watched your persecution with growing disgust. Sadly, just like in China, the Colorado government apparently fears any type of diversity of opinion or belief that differs from their own, and don%u2019t understand that there is a power greater than any of us, that is the Lord our God. Stay strong, brother!

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.

You all were so kind to do our anti-bullying seminar's cake, and it was really the best tasting cake we've had. When I arrived to pick it up for our church, without asking, you gave us a discount on it. We were surprised and blessed. We wanted to hopefully return some of that to you. We are praying for you!
