November last year I attended a rally for Jack Phillips, whose case was going to come before the U.S. Supreme Court. We all were expecting Jack’s case to be decided in December of last year.
Last November, the atmosphere was electric in the packed auditorium at Colorado Christian University (CCU). We heard speaker after speaker talking in defense of our Constitutional rights to freedom of religion/conscience/thought/and speech.
A man from Alliance Defending Freedom spoke. Alliance Defending Freedom is the group that has been providing necessary legal support for Jack (pro bono — without cost to Jack). On their website they say, “… the ensuing lawsuit became the first time the government ever tried to force him to violate his conscience.” Continue reading →
Below is the first part of an article called “Description” found on Jack Phillips’ Masterpiece Cakeshop Website (see it on the link to donate page link above):
“Thank you for your interest in standing with Jack through these difficult times!
“What started as a conversation – a polite decline to custom design a same-sex couple’s wedding cake because it violated Jack’s biblically-informed conscience – has turned into an almost 5 year legal battle. After all, the Constitution’s guarantee of free exercise of religion and freedom of speech remain a part of the American fabric. And every American should be free to live and work consistent with their faith, without fear of being punished by the government.
WHAT HAPPENED ON JUNE 8, 2018 AT
During the morning and through the afternoon on June 8th, there were from 75 to 200 people at a time at Masterpiece Cakeshop, supporting Jack. Everyone was very pleasant.
A man was there all day from the legal group that had supported Jack (at no cost). I asked if they needed any more financial support, and he told me that people had been very generous over the 6 years. Now it was the time give full support to Jack.
Present was the attorney who defended Jack’s case before the U.S. Supreme Court. Other people who came to support Jack were: people from several organizations, individuals from his church and other churches, and friends and people who had heard about the potential flash mob. They all came to support Jack with their presence in the face of threats.
All morning and afternoon, there was a continuous line of people purchasing baked goods and other things that were for sale in the cakeshop. Jack said with a smile that people were purchasing anything that was not nailed down. Continue reading →
Jeanette Finicum is the wife of LaVoy, who was killed in Eastern Oregon by the Oregon State Police and other officials.
There is a video taken from within the vehicle LaVoy was driving – when he was murdered — showing the attempts by “law enforcement” (after they killed LaVoy) to kill the people who were in the vehicle with him.
Greetings from Jeanette & family,
My family’s journey since the dreadful snowy day in Eastern Oregon when my husband was murdered has felt long and hard. We are still grieving and will be for a very long time. We miss LaVoy and wish he could be home with us.
We understand filing a wrongful death lawsuit will not bring LaVoy home but its process will uniquely contribute to the delicate journey of closure for each loved one of LaVoy.
Our motivation to continue this long, hard, and expensive journey is to preserve the American dream by ensuring that out of control agents who are delegated sacred controls within our governmental system are held accountable. Out of control agents must not become the norm in this nation.
The outcome of our case will have a powerful butterfly effect upon this nation. If we do not insist upon this accountability, this type of conduct will continue to take precedence and persist in destroying the life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness of many more Americans.
It is not American to deny citizens the right to life, liberty, pursuit of happiness, and due process. We are Americans! Continue reading →
From the story told by one of Bundy’s attorneys: “Over a year later, Cliven was arrested when he got off a plane in Oregon on his way to visit his sons camped on the Malheur wildlife refuge who were defending the rights of some Oregon ranchers who had been unjustly imprisoned on trumped up charges. That stand-off, in which one of the Bundy supporters, LaVoy Finicum, was killed in cold blood by an FBI agent, went before a jury.”

Mark Herr here shares a video history of the Bundy Standoff
Mark Herr, President and co-founder of Center for Self Governance (CSG), made a video history of a standoff between people and the government. People gathered to support Cliven Bundy’s right to graze on the land that he and his ancestors have been grazing on for generations.
I had the privilege of being in some of Mark Herr’s CSG classes, during the time of the Bundy standoff. Mark is one of the brave people in our country, who sacrifices most of his life in order to stand up for our liberty, and educate others how to stand up.
