Rally for Jack Phillips – November 8, 2017
http://www.ccu.edu/centennial/event/religious-freedom-rally-jack-phillips/

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

WHAT HAPPENED ON JUNE 8, 2018 AT
MASTERPIECE CAKESHOP?

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

[Please join this effort to let Pres. Trump know how desperately concerned we are about the new ESSA (replacement for NCLB) and its codification into law of the implementation of social, emotional, and behavioral standards and interventions into our nation’s classrooms. Simply cut/copy/paste this article but add your own name and home address.  Then e-mail to Pres. Trump.  If you sincerely care about protecting children from child abuse by the government, please take action now. – Donna Garner]
