By now, you’ve no doubt heard about the Jack Phillips, the Colorado baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple because doing so, he claimed, would go against his religious beliefs. The U.S. Supreme Court heard the case last week and is expected to announce its ruling soon.
In the meantime, the Benham Brothers have decided to add their two cents on the matter. In an op-ed published Tuesday, they voiced their support for Phillips, who they believe is a “Christian artist” who has been unfairly labeled “a hateful, discriminatory, bigot who deserves to be run out of business.”
The twinsies write:
This man is now being maligned as a hater for exercising his free speech and expression rights not because of discrimination, but because he is on the wrong side of the sexual revolution. It didn’t matter to the Commission that his convictions have been consistent over the years, as he refused to bake a Halloween cake when requested and also a celebratory divorce cake as well.
The brothers say Phillips simply “refused to use his artistic expression to support an event that ran against his conscience.” Plain and simple. But LGBTQ people don’t seem to understand this. Probably because they’re so focused on having sex all the time that they lack any common sense:
But this common-sense logic matters not in the sexual revolution. If you’re on the other side of the ever-elusive sexual whims of the LGBTQ+ agenda, you’re a hater, not a hero.
You see, refusing to bake a cake for someone because you believe doing so would defy the teachings of a character from a 2,000 year old book is common sense. Wanting to serve a cake at your wedding, on the other hand, is totally, 100% illogical.
Phillip’s decision not to bake the cake, the twinsies say, was between him and God, not the government. More people ought to “serve with excellence” and “not be afraid of forced participation in messages and events that are against [their] convictions.”
“No matter what label we as Christians may receive (or decision the court may render), the Lord ‘will bring forth our righteousness as the light and our judgment as the noonday!’” the twinsies attest.
