Baker Who Refused Same-Sex Wedding Cake Scores Book Deal for Memoir

Because of course.

Bigotry pays! Apparently.

Jack Phillips, the infamous Colorado baker who refused to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex marriage while hiding behind his religion has landed a book deal to talk about his experience being a professional homophobe.

The Baker is set to be released on June 23 by Salem Books, an imprint of the conservative Regnery Publishing.

The official description of the book recounts the events leading up to the famous court case, noting that Phillips “politely” declined to make a wedding cake for two men who were getting married.

“Little did Jack know that his quiet stand for his Christian convictions about marriage would become a battle for the right of all Americans to live out their faith.”

The Baker is Jack’s firsthand account from the frontlines of the battle with a culture that is making every effort to remove God from the public square and a government denying Bible-believing Christians the right to freely exercise their religious beliefs,” it continues.

Never mind that Phillips ultimately won his court case, or that Christianity is the predominant religion in America, or that a conservative government rules over the country and that laws continue to be passed allowing for discrimination against LGBTQ people in the name of “religious freedom.”

It’s unknown how much Phillips made in advance off this memoir, but it certainly wouldn’t have happened if he had quietly done the right thing and treated all of his customers with dignity and respect. No, in religious circles, tolerance doesn’t seem to sell quite as well as the twisted narrative of martyrdom, no matter how unnecessary.
