Jack Phillips: Which Constitution will the Supreme Court Use? by Bryan Fischer

The homosexual agenda is the greatest threat to religious liberty in our nation’s history. That’s why the Masterpiece Cakeshop case, being heard this week by the Supreme Court, is so important. It’s an opportunity for the Court to stand athwart moral anarchy and yell “Stop!”  If the Court fails in its constitutional duty, the light of religious liberty in America will flicker and then fade into complete darkness.

Jack Phillips, the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, was sued by two homosexuals for politely declining to bake a cake which celebrated their same-sex marriage. This was at a time, by the way, when homosexual marriage was still illegal in Colorado.

Phillips never has discriminated against homosexuals or anyone else in the ordinary course of business. When someone walks in and asks for a cupcake, or a birthday cake, or a muffin, he never asks them for proof of sexual orientation. But baking a cake which has a pro-gay-marriage message on top is different, for creating such a cake requires him to violate his own conscience. No matter, said the Colorado courts, we don’t care if it violates your conscience or the Constitution or all that is right and decent and holy, you will bake that cake or you will be punished.

How this case is resolved will depend on one simple thing: which Constitution the Supreme Court uses to adjudicate this case. If the justices use the Constitution as mangled beyond recognition by Anthony Kennedy and other activist jurists, the Constitution with “emanations,” “penumbras,” and ruminations about the “mystery of human life,” they will easily find against Mr. Phillips and uphold whatever punishment the government of Colorado thinks Christians must suffer for believing in natural marriage.
