The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Jonathan Scruggs regarding notice of appeal filed Tuesday with the Arizona Court of Appeals in Brush & Nib Studio v. City of Phoenix:
“No American should be threatened with jail time for disagreeing with the government. It’s unjust, unlawful, and unnecessary to force a painter, calligrapher, or a cake artist to create artistic expression against their will and intimidate them into silence. Like Jack Phillips of Masterpiece Cakeshop, Breanna Koski and Joanna Duka are happy create custom art for all people, they simply object to being forced to pour their heart, imagination, and talent into creating messages that violate their conscience.”
Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith.
