Masterpiece Cakeshop is again under fire, now the subject of a third discrimination lawsuit alleging that owner Jack Phillips “discriminated” against a customer by refusing to make a cake for an unspecified event.

Phillips, of course, won at the United States Supreme Court after suing a Colorado “human rights” commission that punished him for refusing to provide a wedding cake for a same-sex wedding in Denver, a task Phillips said violated his religious conviction that true marriage is between one man and one woman. Phillips offered to sell the couple a pre-made cake or refer them to another baker — solutions that would have allowed Phillips to avoid material participation in the same-sex wedding — but the couple weren’t satisfied and leveled a complaint with Colorado authorities.

Ultimately, in a decisive Supreme Court victory, Phillips won against the Colorado human rights commission, but the victory hinged on the behavior of the commission itself, which SCOTUS found to be harassing and discriminatory. The Supreme Court refused to issue a verdict on whether the First Amendment’s free exercise clause protects Christians from being forced to participate in same-sex weddings — or any event or action that violates their right of conscience.

But, intent on punishing Phillips for his “crimes,” leftists have hit the baker twice with lawsuits alleging further “discrimination,” once the day of the Supreme Court verdict — that was tossed out — and again last week, according to CBS’s Denver affiliate.

“The latest lawsuit was filed Wednesday in Denver District Court on behalf of Autumn Scardina by attorneys Paula Greisen and John McHugh,” the outlet reports.

Scardina is the same woman who filed the previous lawsuit alleging discrimination after Masterpiece Cakeshop denied her request — made the day Phillips won his case — for a cake celebrating her gender transition. Reports on this newest lawsuit are vague on the theme of the pastry in question — they have said, so far, only that Scardina requested a “birthday cake” — but previous filings indicate that Scardina has gone out of her way on several occasions to request cakes Masterpiece Cakeshop clearly will not make.

Newsweek reports that the baked goods at the center of Scardina’s previous complaints to Colorado authorities included a “cake to celebrate Satan’s birthday,” with “cheesecake frosting” that would feature “a large figure of Satan, licking a 9” black Dildo…an actual working model, that can be turned on before we unveil the cake.”

Phillips said then that he believes Scardina regularly requests objectionable cakes from his bakery, including cakes with pentagrams and upside-down crosses.

Scardina’s previous lawsuit, based on claims Phillips made during the original same-sex wedding cake litigation that he would make “any” cake for an LGBT customer except for a wedding cake, was dropped back in September of last year, after Phillips agreed to drop his own discrimination case against the state of Colorado, according to Colorado Public Radio.

But Scardina, apparently, felt no need to give up.

“A new lawsuit has been filed against Masterpiece Cakeshop that appears to largely rehash old claims. The State of Colorado abandoned similar ones just a few months ago. So this latest attack by Autumn Scardina looks like yet another desperate attempt to harass cake artist Jack Phillips. And it stumbles over the one detail that matters most: Jack serves everyone; he just cannot express all messages through his custom cakes,” Phillips’ attorney said in a statement Monday.

This latest lawsuit bypasses the state of Colorado and requests a trial by jury instead.

      Why will these degenerates not go to a bakery that will accommodate their requests? They are clearly doing this just to harass this man! Why can’t a bakery be designated a “Christian Bakery” so that anyone wanting a “degenerate” baked good knows to go to a different baker? Really? You want a bakery run by Christians to make a cake with Satan or dildos on it?! Bookstore label themselves “Christian Bookstore” and I wouldn’t go in there looking for those “degenerate” books! If someone goes into a bakery, flower shop, etc. and it goes against someone’s religion why can’t they just go to a different shop? This whole thing reeks of trying to shove down Christian’s throats the “degenerates” lifestyle!

    I believe that repeated frivolous lawsuits filed without merit for harassment is defined by the legal term “barratry”(Barratry is a legal term with several meanings. In common law, barratry is the offense committed by people who are “overly officious in instigating or encouraging prosecution of groundless litigation” or who bring “repeated or persistent acts of litigation” for the purposes of profit or harassment. Wikipedia). To the best of my knowledge, Frivolous Action Filings in Colorado Courts is frowned upon by the judiciary. Don’t go broke, get even.

      Thank you. They should be punished severely for continuing to do this. I hope she loses everything she owns; & ends up in prison.

    I hope he sues her/it for all she is worth and then some. Our courts should not be allowing this to continue against this man.

    A decent lawyer will not take this frivolous lawsuit.. if I were the baker, I’ll retaliate and sue her for harassment … people should leave this decent baker alone! Enough is enough.. I’d like to be in that jury so we can all dismiss the case..waste of taxpayers money!

    Sue this “Nut Case” for harrasement. If she REALLY wanted these particular cakes, she could find someone to make them. She clearly doesn’t care about the cakes but is in a power strugle to force this man to do her bidding. Kick her sorry ass to the curb !

    As I said before, if these loony toons want all these disgusting cakes and services, why don’t some of the alphabet gang open businesses to cater to their own kind? Or is it that the only brains or purpose these people have is to harrass and sue anyone who dares to hold fast to their own values?
    These alphabet folks are multiplying faster than rabbits…tell me that there are none who have baking, printing, singing talents to celebrate their friends’ events?
    I am totally against this whole lifestyle…I don’t believe for one second that anyone is born this way. It is all stemming from the lack of common sense parenting and failure to believe and live in the Lord’s way.
    Yeah, I’m sure some a-hole will bash me for my outspoken views, but this is AMERICA….FREEDOM OF SPEECH.

    Phillips needs to seek funding through Gofundme and pay a group of attorneys to bankrupt Scardinia with legal fees and judgments. I will contribute.

    Google “vexatious litigant”. He/she needs to be penalized by the court and have the vexatious suits dismissed upon filing.

    When someone sues and loses they should be required to pay the defense costs of the other party. That would stop these L,B,Q,T,B,F,D’s from suing.

      You are soooo right! These suing people tend to be held accountable. They spend their lives harassing innocent people.

    These lawsuits are petty, juvenile, and just plain evil. This man will happily bake you a cake, but because he has moral convictions that go again his faith, you taunt and torment him with what you know he won’t do. It must be miserable living in your screwed up brain!
    Leave this man alone and find another baker who will bake your freaky cakes, no questions asked! It’s a win-win for all. Stop trying to drag the rest of us down into the gutter!

    They should be sued for harassment. Gay people are just plain annoying. All they are is “gay”. All they think about is forcing everyone to agree with their choices and way of life. All they are…is…gay. No dimension to them at all.
