Jack Phillips was sued for refusing to make a wedding cake for a gay couple, who then allegedly issued death threats. They sued. He lost in court, and now his bakery can no longer sell wedding cakes, which were about forty percent of his business.
Although it appears that Phillips is on the losing side of the debate, the baker said he has received a lot of support, not only from friends and family, but from members of the gay community.
“The other day a guy from Daytona Beach called and left a message. He said he’s gay and he wanted to offer his support, and gave me his phone number to call him back,” Phillips said, adding that this was just one of many such pledges of support.
Phillips said many members of the gay community told him that Craig and Mullins and others who have threatened Phillips are making the rest of the gay community “look like we’re terrorists.” Source
This post started with the video below, then I found the story of the cake maker. One has nothing to do with the other. I believe all sin is equal in the eyes of God, with one exception, which is denying Jesus Christ. We all sin. I believe everyone one of us has the opportunity to have a relationship with God, and the opportunity can come in the blink of an eye –– even if it’s in our last moments. That’s what I think. It’s not what I know with certainty. Thanks to Carl Middleton for the video. Read his latest here.
