21 State AG’s Back Christian Baker Jack Phillips In Latest Lawsuit

Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

State Attorney Generals from 21 states, including Arkansas GOP Attorney General Tim Griffin and Texas GOP Attorney General Ken Paxton, are supporting Jack Phillips, the Christian baker who for a third time is facing a lawsuit in Colorado. The lawsuit was brought by male-to-female transgender attorney Autumn Scardina who requested Phillips to make a cake to celebrate the transition and Phillips refused. Scardina previously sued Phillips but the case was dismissed by Colorado. Scardina then filled  the current civil suit against Phillips which is currently before the Colorado Supreme Court. Paxton said, “I am profoundly disheartened by the targeted harassment experienced by baker Jack Phillips on the basis of his religion.” Phillips was sued in 2013 after refusing to bake a cake for a homosexual couple. The case reached the U.S. Supreme Court which found that Phillips was within his rights to refuse and that Colorado had acted with hostility to his Christian faith.
