Colorado baker Jack Phillips is back in court again, facing another lawsuit. For more than eight years, LGBT activists have targeted him for his beliefs. This time, he’s being sued for declining to bake a cake celebrating a transgender transition.

Phillips is a Christian, and his religious beliefs prevent him from offering his services to promote LGBTQ ideology.

CBN News previously reported that Phillips won a major victory in the U.S. Supreme Court, but his legal opponents have refused to give up their direct targeting of him. His latest case went before a state judge on Monday in Denver.

Autumn Scardina tried to order the cake on the same day in 2017 that the Supreme Court said it would hear Phillips’ same-sex wedding cake case.

Scardina, who’s an attorney, asked for a cake that was blue on the outside and pink on the inside in honor of her gender transition.

During a 2018 interview with CBN News, Phillips said he could not make the cake because it violated his constitutionally protected beliefs.

“The Bible teaches that God made male and female, and I believe that we don’t get to choose that, and we don’t get to change that, and the government shouldn’t be able to compel me to celebrate somebody who is trying to do that—celebrate that by creating a cake for this occasion,” he explained.
