UNDER SIEGE: Masterpiece Cakeshop is being sued AGAIN by another LGBT activist

Despite his Supreme Court victory against those trying to force him to make a gay wedding cake, Jack Phillips and Masterpiece Cakeshop is under attack again.

This time it’s by a transgender female (biological male) who wanted a so-called birthday cake to celebrate his gender transition from male to female.

Autumn Scardina filed a lawsuit against Jack Phillips and Masterpiece Cakeshop on June 5.



According to that lawsuit, Phillips was happy to make a birthday cake but when told the design of the cake had to do with ‘gender transition’, he declined making the cake saying he doesn’t make cakes for ‘sex changes’.

Scardina is suggesting that Phillips lied to the Supreme Court when he said he would make cakes for other occasions, just not gay weddings.

Phillip’s lawyers, Alliance Defending Freedom, released this statement according to CBS Denver:

“A new lawsuit has been filed against Masterpiece Cakeshop that appears to largely rehash old claims. The State of Colorado abandoned similar ones just a few months ago. So this latest attack by Scardina looks like yet another desperate attempt to harass cake artist Jack Phillips. And it stumbles over the one detail that matters most: Jack serves everyone; he just cannot express all messages through his custom cakes.”

This is clearly harassment by the LGBT community who knows that Phillips will not violate his Christian faith. Hopefully the courts will dump this lawsuit as soon as it gets the first opportunity.

Jack can say he just didn’t anticipate this kind of cake when he made his previous statement. The he can offer to sell them a blank cake they can write their own message on. Then, Jack can sue them up the wazoo for harassment.

If you go to any artist – painter, sculptor, architect, photographer, etc. – you look at their work and discuss what you envision and what they can create. Sometimes that doesn’t work out because the visions are just too far apart. That is just part of the process when commissioning art. So, you go to other artists until you find one capable of making your vision a reality.

It’s not a matter for a nuisance lawsuit. They can’t get what they want by putting a gun to the head of the artist. That’s not how art works.

If his religion was against interracial marriage then he should have the right to refuse service. The only thing that would happen in this case would be someone being offended. In a free society the right not to be offended is not only a false right but doesn’t exist in the constitution. At least not yet anyway.

I appreciate your answer, but I don’t quite understand. I don’t think the harm is being offended. Rather, the harms, from the perspective of the customer, are the denial of service and unequal treatment. It is easy to say, well he could just go somewhere else, but we don’t have to go too far back in history to see that is often not an adequate remedy. Also, do religious rights trump all others? For example, what if he sincerely believed that his religion was against women engaging in commerce? Would he have the right to refuse all women service? Or what if he sincerely believed that religion required women to wear burkas? Could he refuse service to women who didn’t abide? Or to take a real example out of the not too distant past, what if he sincerely believed in the separation of the races, could he forbid service to… Read more »

Thin edge of the wedge. Where does it end? Suppose a guy walks into a Christian bakers cake shop and wants a cake made featuring him and his girlfriend performing some deviant sex act. Does the baker have the right to refuse service? You can’t force someone in a free society to do something he doesn’t want to do, especially if it goes against his morals. No matter how much you may or may not disagree with it. If you do it’s no longer a free society and is just another step down the road to dystopia.

Good question. It seems that most here seem to think it ends right at the point where their religious beliefs get special protection, and no other religious beliefs get any protection.

This cannot be. If we are going to start providing affirmative protections for religious people to act on their beliefs in the public sphere, there are going to be some pretty dire unintended consequences.

There are other places to get a cake and also, anyone can bake their own cake. Plenty of cheap ingredients in the grocery store. No one has the right to a professional cake. A cake is not a life necessity and is also easily available. Thye can write their own stuff on it. Likewise, anyone can get pictures of a ceremony, anyone can sing, anyone can buy flowers. We are also talking about behavior here and not an immutable physical characteristic such as race.

Same sex marriage is an act related to homosexuality and homosexuality is condemned several times throughout the Bible old and new. Men wearing women’s cloths and vice versa is also condemned in the Bible. You say there are conflicting beliefs regarding these. Please present them. The Bible doesn’t condemn interracial marriages but it does condemn the others. Besides interracial marriages are not the issue here, transsexualism is.

I’m sorry, but there is no reason to present them or argue them. Religious rights don’t work that way. There is no religious litmus test, where one must prove the scriptural basis for the belief to count. (The exception is perhaps for “sincerity” and even that is fraught with peril.)

Surely we don’t want the government telling us what religious beliefs are scripturally supported, and what ones aren’t, do we?

This is a large part of my point. We may agree with this baker, but what will we think when the same principals are being used to protect some pretty hideous stuff?

The government is “sticking their noses into it” in the sense that Colorado has anti-discrimination laws which protect LGBQT (or whatever it is) people from discrimination in their commercial dealings. But such laws are well within the purview of government, aren’t they? And the people of Colorado are free to change them if they like.

The baker wants a carve out, so he can discriminate against them in certain limited situations (where he’d feel like he was participating in something he didn’t believe in). I understand why he wants the carve out, and don’t doubt his sincerity. The trouble is, if you start judicially creating such carve-outs, you end up with people in certain vulnerable communities suffering real harm.

Sincere religious convictions were long used to justify slavery. Some religious leaders went so far to insist that the enslavement of blacks was not only acceptable, it was required by the Bible, and that those who did not abide were going against God’s Will.

Likewise, sincere religious convictions were long used to justify segregation and anti-miscegenation laws.

Also, some fundamentalists of various religions use sincere religious convictions as a justification to routinely discriminate against women, effectively shunning women who do not meat their standards of dress and/or behavior.

To my mind this is all pretty hideous stuff, and in each case practitioners attempt to justify such behavior based on their sincere religious conviction.

As late as 1950, twenty-nine states still banned interracial marriage, and in 1967, when the Supreme Court struck prohibitions on interracial marriage, sixteen states still prohibited interracial marriage. The bans on interracial marriage were based on sincerely held religious beliefs, and the debate sounded an awful lot like the debate raging today about same sex marriage.

First, a hogwash argument. There is no Christian doctrine about interracial marriage. On the contrary, the Bible says that God has made all nations of men of one blood. And again, For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device. Acts 17:28-29 Which is probably not surprising when you remember the Great Commission is to preach the Gospel to every nation. There’s simply no comparison to male/female marriage, which is explicitly taught by Jesus Christ Himself. And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said,… Read more »

LOL. You’ve got no argument with me. I’ve never argued, nor would I argue, that interracial marriage is a sin.

But there certainly was such a Christian doctrine, in America, especially in the South. And we aren’t talking about ancient history. See, for example, the Bob Jones University Supreme Court case, which was 1983. Or for that matter see the evolution of the policies of that institution to get a quick glimpse of the Christian Right’s views on interracial marriage.

I remember when this story hit the news in 1983. The rule at Bob Jones University was not that interracial dating was denied, but that the parents had to give permission. If they had believed interracial dating was actually sinful, it would never have been permitted regardless of parents’ opinions.

In short, this example doesn’t prove a Christian doctrine against interracial dating. It indicates a hot-button social issue, not a Christian doctrine.

T_ump

You are mistaken. Here is the University’s disciplinary rule in place at the time of the 1983 decision:

“There is to be no interracial dating.
“1. Students who are partners in an interracial marriage will be expelled.
“2. Students who are members of or affiliated with any group or organization which holds as one of its goals or advocates interracial marriage will be expelled.
“3. Students who date outside of their own race will be expelled.
“4. Students who espouse, promote, or encourage others to violate the University’s dating rules and regulations will be expelled.”

I would guess such a claim of religious belief would have to be established somehow to be legally defensible. Since the Bible doesn’t actually speak against interracial marriage, that would be hard for a Christian to do. And remember, Masterpiece was not refusing service to the activist. Phillips was only refusing to make him a custom cake with a message that went against his belief.

T_ump
Member

Your guess would be mistaken. Because of the Airst Amendment, the government can’t be in the business of be in the business of establishing the authenticity or Biblical accuracy of a religious belief, beyond maybe determining if it the person actually (sincerely) holds that belief. In other words, if sincerely held, a crazy belief based on a twisted reading of the Koran is just as much a religious belief as the baker’s belief that gay marriage is a sin. That’s why this isn’t as simple as people seem to think. And, historically, speaking out against and passing laws against interracial marriage on religious grounds was NOT a hard thing for a Christian to do! Anti-Miscegenation laws were Christian creations. Their strongest supporters were the same demographic who leads the opposition against gay marriage and similar issues. I’m quite surprised that the Christian Right has forgotten about the 300+ years that… Read more »

Respectfully, you’ve got your history wrong. Anti-Miscegenation laws in the United States date back to the 1600’s, and at the time of Loving v.

Although they were unenforceable, a number of southern states stubbornly kept such provisions in their state constitutions. until fairly recently. It wasnt until 2000 that Alabama finally held a referendum to get rid of theirs, and even then less than 60% of the population voted to get rid of it. Your history is also mistaken regarding the history of same sex marriage and unions. I won’t bother to get into it except to note that even the Old Testament notes (disapprovingly) that the practice occurred among Egyptians and Canaanites.

Setting aside what you would or wouldn’t do . . . Do you think that a “leftist gay” business ought to be able to discriminate against Christians and their practice of Christianity?

Say, hypothetically, that a San Francisco Bay Area hotel booked a wedding, including a block of rooms, the venue, catering, flowers, etc., as is their normal course of business. Then, after the Hotel found out it was to be an Evangelical wedding, they cancelled on the basis that they sincerely believe that Evangelicals are sinners, and the establishment did not want to take part in any Evangelical celebration.

Would you be okay with this? Or would you hold it out as an example of discrimination against Christians? Or something else?

Yes they should be able to discriminate. The word “Discrimination” has been co-opted by the left to be bad. It’s not bad. We discriminate in everything we do every day from what we buy to who we associate with to what we eat. Before anyone makes “discrimination” illegal I need to understand the black and white line so that everybody understand what it is and what it is not. So far no one has been able to define that line clearly on either side, which to me means we cannot and should not legislate it.

But Colorado has enacted anti-discrimination rules, in black and white.

What is happening here is that baker wants a carve out so he can discriminate in certain situations where the Colorado normally prohibits discrimination. To put it in your terms, before we support such a carve out, we “need to understand the black and white line so that everybody understand what it is and what it is not. So far no one has been able to define that line clearly on either side.” That’s what I’m getting at here.

I think you don’t have the law quite right here.

It should be thrown out of court.

I’ve just read that this is the same person who filed the first two lawsuits against Masterpiece. It will be thrown out again as it was the last time. Jack Phillips should sue the idiot for harassment and get a restraining order against it.

That’s why I said Masterpiece should file a lawsuit against the ahole for harassment. Also get a restraining order against it.

So you’re defending harassment then?

No. I am not defending harassment. I have no idea where you could have gotten that.

ryan-oryan-o Apparently this person had sued twice before and failed. He’s clearly harassing the shop and trying to adjust his angle to get a victory. It’s obviously a third attempt at setting up the shop, and a judge should see right through this crap and shut it down again. I think there should be a counter suit for harassment. Make it $1 million.

If you can’t beat them in court, try to bankrupt them to put them out of business. Hope it all backfires bigly.

Make the cake in the shape of Herbie the Love Bug and say, “I tried but I just couldn’t get the formation correct. There’s a Muslim bakery down the street that you might want to try.”

I hope the courts throw it out too and hoping the courts make the tranny pay the baker’s attorney fees and court costs.

So a Nazi walks into a Jewish owned cake shop and order’s a cake celebrating Adolf Hitler’s birthday…

No, no, that’s not it….A Klansman walks into a bakery owned by a black lady and asks for cake depicting a lynching…

No, it was a bakery owned by a lesbian couple and a member of the Westboro (so-called) Church walked in asking for a cake with the message “God hates fags”…yeah, that’s the story…and then the police showed up, put a gun to the owner’s head, and said, “Bake the cake!”

Perhaps you should try becoming more familiar with the Bible if you’re going to try to tell us about it.

Perhaps. Or perhaps sometimes it is easier to get a message across if one avoids being too pedantic.
