More than 100 people showed up to a Denver rally to support the LGBTQ community after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of a Colorado baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple.
UPDATE: Alliance Defending Freedom and Colorado Christian University’s Centennial Institute requested a clarification that CCU was the organizer of the event and that it invited Alliance Defending Freedom. The post has been updated to reflect the Centennial Institute’s role as organizing entity. The source for the original assertion was ADF’s Facebook event page, which says: “Hosted by Jeff Hunt, Centennial Institute, Alliance Defending Freedom,” as well as CCU’s website, “Join Jack Phillips, Colorado Christian University, Alliance Defending Freedom, and faith leaders from around Colorado for a rally.”
Speaking at Colorado Christian University this morning, State Sen. Kevin Lundberg (R-Berthoud) promised to use his legislative power to change the rules of the Colorado Civil Rights Commission so that it would defend the rights of Lakewood baker Jack Phillips who refused to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple.
A rally for Jack Phillips, the baker who refused to sell a wedding cake to a gay couple, is set for Wed., Nov. 8, at Colorado Christian University’s Event Center.
The Colorado baker who refused to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple on religious grounds received another cake order last month that probably didn’t jive with his Christian beliefs: a birthday cake for Satan.
Nicole Martin, the Alliance for Defending Freedom attorney who has represented Jack Phillips of Masterpiece Cakeshop, appeared on Denver’s KNUS radio Thursday, September 7, to update listeners on preparations for the highly anticipated hearing of arguments in Phillips’ case by the United States Supreme Court in the coming months.
The conservative group Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), which has been spotlighted as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, recently sought donations on Facebook for its legal defense of Jack Phillips, the Lakewood baker who violated Colorado law for refusing to sell a wedding cake to a gay couple.
