Would you create the cake?
He never meant to be, but Colorado cake artist Jack Phillips has found himself known across the country and around the world for standing by his religious beliefs—all for declining to custom design a cake celebrating a same-sex wedding.
For nearly 10 years, he’s been the symbol of one question: Even though I may risk losing my livelihood if I don’t, should I create something that goes against my conscience?
For Jack, the question’s always been about the message that a cake sends—never the people requesting it. And for Jack, the answer has always been “No.”
