VICTORY: Masterpiece Cakeshop BEATS Colorado Civil Rights Commission into submission!

Masterpiece Cakeshop has finally beaten the Colorado Civil Rights Commission into submission after their continuing harassment of his Cakeshop even after beating them in the Supreme Court last year.

Notice the language in the report below makes it sound like they both agreed to stop attacking each other, as if Jack Phillips was in the wrong here:

DENVER POST – More than six years of legal battles between the owner of Lakewood’s Masterpiece Cakeshop and state officials will end after the baker agreed to drop his lawsuit alleging the Colorado Civil Rights Commission was harassing him for refusing to make cakes with LGBTQ themes in exchange for the commission dropping its own actions against him.

“After careful consideration of the facts, both sides agreed it was not in anyone’s best interest to move forward with these cases,” Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser said in a news release Tuesday announcing the agreement. “The larger constitutional issues might well be decided down the road, but these cases will not be the vehicle for resolving them.”

The Civil Rights Commission unanimously voted to approve the agreement between the two sides Tuesday morning, said Lawrence Pacheco, a spokesman for Weiser. The attorney general’s office represents the commission and the director of the Colorado Civil Rights Division, who also was named in Phillips’ lawsuit.

“Throughout these proceedings, the parties have been looking for ways to resolve the issue,” Pacheco said.



This isn’t really a ‘both sides agreed’ kind of thing. Jack Phillips wanted to be left alone to run his business with his faith in mind. It was Colorado that sued him and harassed him for the last six years.

In fact Phillips only filed his counter lawsuit after Colorado attacked him again. He’d already beaten them once and they knew the writing was on the wall. Even Ted Cruz knows this “mutual ceasefire” is a load of crap:

Here’s what Phillip’s attorneys had to say:

When reached by phone Tuesday, Phillips said he could not immediately comment and referred a reporter to his attorneys.

His attorneys counted the agreement as a victory and stood by their belief that the commission’s actions toward Phillips were harassment.

“This is the second time the state has launched a failed effort to prosecute him,” said attorney Kristen Waggoner, of the Alliance Defending Freedom. “While it finally appears to be getting the message that its anti-religious hostility has no place in our country, the state’s decision to target Jack has cost him more than six-and-a-half years of his life, forcing him to spend that time tied up in legal proceedings.”

Honestly I would have loved to see him throttle them in court with harassment. But after six years of legal battles, I’m quite certain he’s had enough and can totally understand his willingness to drop his lawsuit against them.

Prosecutorial immunity. A 1976 SCOTUS ruling states that prosecutors are immune from civil tort while performing their duties as prosecutors. I’m sure an argument can be made that this extends to the state as well.

Radical Leftists-Democrats have turned Colorado into a Christian hating America hating cesspool of political govt tyranny, but found out that they do not own this country, which is exactly why the Founding Fathers created the U.S. Constitution-Bill of Rights, for the protection of We the People against Govt Power Tyranny.

Thanks Nana. I love Steven Crowder. He’s now part of the Blaze line-up but I also had watched him on CRTV since I subscribed to both platforms. He can be a little raw, but I love his sense of humor and quick wit.

He’s going through a tough time with his dog, Hopper, as he was just diagnosed with cancer and they’re doing chemo with him. Hopper has been a part of his shows and he even has dressed him up and made commercials with him (they’re hilarious). So, please say a prayer for his family that Hopper will pull through. So far, he said he’s taking the chemo very well and they caught it early.

Well if you guys are saying prayers for dogs, can you say one for my big guy (my avatar)? He’s only just turned 4 but it looks like he’s blown out his knee, and as a working ranch dog who fights coyotes daily, that’s not a good thing. Surgery would be $5K and that’s just too much for us to pay.

Paladin So sorry to hear about your dog. I’ll definitely say prayers. What type of blow out? Is it an injury? My yellow lab (my avatar) is 7 and he has a bad back left knee. He’s only a pet, so no working ranch dog like yours, but I’ve been taking him to a natural vet and it has been amazing. They do kinesiology, chiropractic, laser acupuncture, energy medicine and they have an injection they do right to the knee that will create scar tissue. It may have to be repeated 2-3 times, but it is in lieu of surgery which is very expensive. The first time was $200, and I’ll have to take him each month to see his progress, but they have had great success. Let me know if you would like more information and I’ll get it from my vet. In the meantime, prayers going to you… Read more »

Rae, I’d love more info. My two country vets were going back and forth with why he won’t step on his left rear leg. One thought it was his knee, the other thought it was his ankle, but a few days after his last visit, it was pretty clear that his knee is swollen. I could do some $200 shots but $5K surgery is just too much. I was supposed to keep him off his leg, but once a Great Pyr starts working, bringing him inside get’s him dangerously depressed. I brought him outside for a walk, he hardly goes, but when he found out we have a new calf he started getting destructive trying to tear through our doors so he could go guard/protect the new calf.

PaladinPaladin I’m not sure how to contact you directly. But I will call my vet tomorrow and ask about the procedure, and I’ll reply to this thread. If you know how to contact each other directly, let me know and I’ll do that as well. Prayers to your pup. I know my baby’s right knee is bad too and it kills me to see him suffer. FYI, the injections hurt for anywhere from 24- 72 hours after they’re done because you can’t give them any pain medication or ice because the purpose is to have the scar tissue develop and eventually protect the joint. Luckily, my guy did very well and slept most of the day that he got the shot (they definitely need to sedate them).

Anyway, I’ll be in touch with you.

I love this guy; he always has great videos. But what I want to see is LGBTQs filing suit against islamofascist bakeries, photographers, wedding consultants and the rest….fair is fair, right? If the progressive left wants “fair,” it must be across the board…or better yet, LGBTQs can go to their own – there is a LONG list of LGBTQ businesses that are cataloged, online across the entire nation.

Unfortunately the left are a bunch of rabid dogs. They’re going to harass this guy in any way they can. Their goal is to force you to happily comply or to destroy you in the process. That’s what turned me against the gay movement. They told us they just wanted the legal freedom to love as consenting adults. Then their nastiness reared it’s ugly head. I look at the rainbow flag the same way I look at a hammer and sickle now.

The sad thing is, most gays who are not part of this totalitarian/tyrannical movement just want to live life and be happy. I have many gay friends who are NOT at all like these radical activists.

But in the end, these activists are going to make it much harder for normal people that happen to be gay, to live their lives and be left alone because they are creating an environment of hate and distrust by people who would otherwise ignore them and ‘live and let live.”

I agree, Rae. I personally know gay people too, and have open and respectful friendships with them. They know how I feel about ssm and they understand.

It’s really too bad that the activists had to push this so hard so fast. It really didn’t have to be this way.

No decent person would ever want any person to be bullied or, God forbid, hurt or killed simply because they are gay. But the radical activists put all of us in that category – unless we support their full agenda, we are haters and bigots. We are not.
