Colorado baker Jack Phillips is 2-0 now after state officials dropped their second attempt to coerce him into baking products that violate his beliefs. Phillips, in turn, dropped a federal lawsuit.
“I have and will always serve everyone who comes into my shop; I simply can’t celebrate events or express messages that conflict with my religious beliefs,” Phillips said in a statement Tuesday.
“Today is a win for freedom,” he added. “I’m very grateful and looking forward to serving my customers as I always have: with love and respect. . . . “Colorado was relentless in seeking to crush me and my shop for living consistently with my deeply held religious beliefs.”
