After refusing same-sex couple, baker accused of discriminating against trans woman

The Colorado cake shop owner at the center of a recent Supreme Court battle over religious rights after he turned away a same-sex couple is facing a new legal battle after allegedly refusing to serve a transgender woman.

NBC News reported that the state Civil Rights Commission found Jack Phillips discriminated against Autumn Scardina, who requested a cake to celebrate the anniversary of her gender transition.

Phillips’ lawyers responded to the decision with a lawsuit this week claiming that the commission is determined to “crush” the Christian business owner.

“After Phillips defended himself all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court and won, he thought Colorado’s hostility toward his faith was over,” the court document reads. “He was wrong.”

  1. The Colorado Commission actually called and acted like a customer to order a gay cake on the day the SCOTUS made the decision on the original case. This is a slap in the face of justice and I hope his lawsuit against the Commission and individuals willl win him $ millions.
