10/09/2017 United States- The nonprofit law firm backing Jack Phillips, the Christian baker at the center of what has been described as “one of the most important U.S. Supreme Court cases of our lifetimes,” has revealed that oral hearings are set for December 5th. The case concerns the First Amendment rights of Phillips, the Christian baker who was found guilty by the Colorado Civil Rights Commission in 2014 for discriminating against same-sex couple in 2012, when he refused to make a cake for their wedding. Phillips has also refused to make Halloween cakes and other items that do not align with his beliefs. His decision not to serve gay weddings has reached the nation’s highest court, however. “In America, artistic expression shouldn’t be subject to government control. Jack’s case is an example of what happens when the government gets into the ideology business and begins to punish private citizens if they don’t share and celebrate the same beliefs as the state,” ADF positioned. “Now the Supreme Court must decide — does the First Amendment protect Jack’s artistic freedom, a principle the high court has long defended, or not?”
The conservative law group has argued that the Supreme Court’s decision in 2015 to redefine marriage to include gay couples does not mean freedom can also be redefined.
