Via press release from Christian Newswire:
The Foundation for Moral Law, a Montgomery nonprofit corporation dedicated to the defense of the Constitution as written and intended by its Framers and to the free exercise of religion, has filed an amicus brief with the United States Supreme Court in defense of a Colorado bakery and its owner.
A gay couple filed a complaint against Masterpiece Cakeshop for its refusal to create a custom-decorated cake for their wedding. Owner Jack Phillips refused their request because as a Christian he could not endorse what God declares to be sin. He was willing to serve homosexuals generally, but believed that baking a wedding cake would send a message of approval of same-sex marriage. The Colorado Court of Appeals ruled that Phillips must fulfill the couple’s request.
Masterpiece sought review in the U. S. Supreme Court which accepted the case. The Foundation has filed an amicus brief urging the High Court to rule that Masterpiece is protected by the Free Exercise and Free Speech Clauses of the First Amendment.
Foundation President Kayla Moore said concerning the case: “The Foundation is proud to stand with Masterpiece and its owner, Jack Phillips. He is a sincere Christian who is being faithful to the Word of God.”
Foundation Senior Counsel John Eidsmoe added: “The choice of the name ‘Masterpiece’ for the bakery demonstrates that Mr. Phillips regards his cakes as artistic expression. The First Amendment’s express protections for speech and religion should not be eclipsed by a so-called right that is a recent invention of the Courts. Hate is not a family value, but moral conviction is not hatred.”
The Foundation For Moral Law was founded by Moore in 2002 and has been headed by his wife since his 2013 reelection to the Alabama Supreme Court.
To date the Moores have raked in more than a million dollars in salary from the tiny “non-profit.” The FML is presently under fire for failing to file its required Form 990s for 2015 and 2016.
Their mission statement: “The Foundation for Moral Law exists to restore the knowledge of God in law and government and to acknowledge and defend the truth that man is endowed with rights, not by our fellow man, but by God!”
NOTE: FML lawyer John Eidsmoe was Michele Bachmann’s “professor” at Oral Roberts “University.” As did hate group leader Tony Perkins, Eidsmoe has addressed the convention of the Council Of Conservative Citizens, formerly the White Citizens Council, which advocates against “all efforts to mix the races of mankind.” Like Perkins and Eidsmoe, terrorist mass murderer Dylann Roof is a fan of the CCC.
