Rainbow Mafia Continues to Harass Christian Cake Maker

A “transgender” activist raises another lawsuit against Colorado baker Jack Phillips.

The reason we coined the term “Rainbow Mafia” as a reference to activist homosexual and “transgender” lobbyists is due to the fact that they work so hard to force public acceptance of their deviancy, with no individual objections allowed. It’s all too similar to the criminal mobs forcing concessions and payments from those they harass and terrorize.

One case that continues to demonstrate the validity of this assessment is the ongoing harassment of Christian baker Jack Phillips. Ever since the first lawsuit was raised against Phillips over his refusal to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex wedding eight years ago, the Rainbow Mafia has targeted Phillips for cancellation.

Even after a U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 2018 that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission had violated Phillips’s religious rights by failing to hold to a standard of neutrality in its anti-discrimination lawsuit against him, the Rainbow Mafia couldn’t take the loss and leave Phillips alone.

On the same day that SCOTUS agreed to take the first case back in 2017, Autumn Scardina, a “transgender woman” — in other words, a biological man — sought to set up Phillips by ordering a cake celebrating his gender “transition,” a request Phillips politely declined on the grounds that it conflicted with his deeply held Christian beliefs. But the animosity began long before that. Way back in 2012, Scardina sent nasty emails to Phillips calling him a “bigot” and a “hypocrite.”

On Monday, hearings began in this case. This clearly vindictive “transgender” activist aims to force Phillips out of business over his refusal to celebrate his identity choice. Scardina explained his reasoning in suing Phillips: “[Masterpiece Cakeshop] indicated that I was welcome back in their shop and entitled to the same treatment as every other customer that telephones or comes through its doors. … I found it sort of offensive and wanted to see if that’s true too. So I called and spoke with who I believed to be Mr. Phillips. He answered the phone this time. I think I indicated — I asked: ‘Do you serve religious cakes?’ Because I noted in his several examples, they had nothing regarding religious cakes. Mr. Phillips indicated that he did. I asked him, ‘Well, could you prepare a religious cake for me that had’ — I think a picture of Satan smoking a joint is the religious cake I asked for.”

Given the outcome of the last case, it’s likely that Phillips will win again. However, given the mentality of those in the Rainbow Mafia, it’s also likely they won’t stop harassing him for refusing to bend his Christian beliefs to satisfy their deviant demands.
