Kristen K. Waggoner, an attorney with Alliance Defending Freedom, will be defending cake artist Jack Phillips of Masterpiece Cakeshop in oral arguments on December 5 before the U.S. Supreme Court. Phillips came under attack when he said he could not create a custom wedding cake celebrating a same-sex “marriage.”
The Left may be seeking to stomp out the religious liberty of Christian creatives like Phillips in the name of tolerance, but FRC’s Tony Perkins points out that the majority of Americans side with the baker. He cites a recent survey by the Cato Institute that found that 68 percent of Americans believe that a baker should not be forced to “provide a special-order wedding cake for a same-sex wedding if doing so violates their religious convictions.”
Whatever the U.S. Supreme Court decides, this is a critical case for our First Amendment liberties under the U.S. Constitution.
