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.

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.
