The state of Colorado, which publicly was rebuked by the U.S. Supreme Court for its exhibited hatred of Christianity in the Masterpiece Cakeshop case only weeks ago, has launched a second attack on the same baker.
On June 15, Christian Action Network (CAN) filed a “friend of the court” brief to overturn a federal court ruling upholding Islamic indoctrination programs in the public schools. CAN is based in Forest, VA.
The spreading threat of children being indoctrinated into Islam claimed new ground in West Virginia to the shock of parents in and around Gerrardstown last month.
What broke the controversy was the courageous stand by a dad whose seventh-grade daughter came home with a thick learning packet on Islam.
A student and her father who brought a federal lawsuit against a Maryland public school district, alleging that it compelled the student to “profess” tenets of Islam and be subjected to Islamic indoctrination at school, have lost the first round in court.
In a landmark ruling Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court castigated a state civil rights commission and ruled 7-2 that a baker’s religious beliefs were violated. The ruling in "Masterpiece Cake Shop, Ltd. v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission" has a clear message: the religious beliefs of merchants must be respected.
