This church sign is making waves in that antigay baker’s backyard

Denver’s South Broadway Christian Church is stirring controversy following the Supreme Court’s decision in favor of antigay evangelical Christian baker Jack Phillips in Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission.

In a narrow ruling, the court ruled in favor of Phillips, saying the civil rights commission didn’t respect his claim that he was discriminating for Jesus by refusing to make a cake for a gay couple.

The baker’s store is located in Lakewood, and is part of the Denver metropolitan area.

The church’s pastor, Dustin Adkins, however, disagrees with Phillips logic and, as an empathetic man of God, he would seem to be an authority. Adkins points to the Bible’s recounting of Christ’s life as the basis for his stance that the Christian savior would embrace LGBT people.

“Jesus worked with folks on the periphery of society, mistreated and marginalized,” Adkins told television station KUSA. “Those folks are the ones he welcomes the most.”

Phillips claimed his religious freedom was being suppressed by forcing him to serve the public equally. The Supreme Court punted on whether or not “religious liberty” includes a license to discriminate against LGBT people, instead they sent the case back for reconsideration. The commission could still resolve the case in favor of the gay couple.
