After Declining to Make a Wedding Cake, He’s Going to the Supreme Court. Here’s How T

LAKEWOOD, Colorado—”How did we end up at the Supreme Court? It’s a long story,” Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, told The Daily Signal. The story began in 2012, when two men walked into his family-run bakery, and asked Jack to create a custom cake for their same-sex wedding ceremony. Because of his Christian faith, Jack declined,*and instead offered to sell them something different.

The couple “stormed out,” Jack said, then sued him under Colorado’s anti-discrimination law. After losing his case before the*Colorado commission and the Colorado Court of Appeals, which both ruled that*that Jack has no First Amendment rights, Jack has one more chance before the U.S. Supreme Court, which agreed to hear his case Tuesday.

In The Daily Signal’s feature video above, Jack and his daughter Lisa Eldfrick tell the story from their side, and share how this journey has affected their faith.
