Jim Daly: Leave Jack Phillips Alone

Hi this is Jim Daly with Focus on the Family.

You know, a couple of years ago I had lunch with Jack Phillips, the owner of the now famous Masterpiece Cakeshop in Denver. I found Jack to be a terrific person—not the controversial character the media has portrayed him to be.

Now Jack’s been under attack because his deeply held religious convictions prevented him from making a cake for a same-sex couple’s wedding. You can agree or disagree with Jack, but the Supreme Court eventually ruled in his favor.

However, that same Human Rights Commission has brought another charge against him, demanding that he now make a cake for a so-called gender transition celebration. I’m sure he was targeted.

Why do good people get beaten down in our culture for what they believe? That’s not the kind of nation we want to live in.

Don’t stick your finger in the other guy’s eye. Let them live their life according to their convictions.
