The freedom to make decisions based upon our faith is being challenged

When a cake artist declines to design a cake for a Halloween party, the world goes about its business. But if that same cake artist declines a request for a custom cake for a same-sex wedding, he is forced to defend his decision all the way to the United States Supreme Court.

Why must Colorado cake artist Jack Phillips defend his right to decline one event and not the other?

In America, artistic expression shouldn’t be subject to government control. Jack’s case, Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, 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. 

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?

Jack’s case is a landmark religious freedom case at the Supreme Court. It has already received national and international attention. As we get closer to oral arguments—on December 5, 2017—that will only continue to increase.
