Hopefully, you heard the good news yesterday. The U.S. Supreme Court granted review in Jack Phillips’ case. Jack owns Masterpiece Cakeshop in Colorado, and he was sued because he politely declined to use his artistic talents to create a cake celebrating a same-sex ceremony.
This is the first time the high court has agreed to hear a case involving creative professionals’ freedom to decline to participate in events or promote messages they disagree with. And Alliance Defending Freedom looks forward to standing before the court to defend Jack’s freedom to live, work, and create consistently with his religious beliefs.
After all, Jack is guided by his faith in everything he does, and he strives to honor Christ in every aspect of his life – including his work. The government should never be allowed to tell him that he must leave those convictions at the door of his workplace.
Jack is not alone in this fight. Many other creative professionals are standing for this same right.
All of these creative professionals are standing to say that the government should protect their right to artistic freedom, not force them to promote events and messages that violate their faith.
That is something we must all get behind.
And now the Supreme Court has the opportunity preserve these freedoms for all Americans.
When the Government Can Tell You What to Say, What to Create, What to Think, and What to Believe, We Do Not Have True Freedom
Alliance Defending Freedom is committed to defending all of these creative professionals who have been told that they must use their God-given talents to promote messages and events that violate their faith. The Supreme Court’s decision to hear Jack’s case is a great step in the right direction.
