June 29, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – A man has won the “Miss Nevada USA” competition and will advance to the Miss USA nationals. He will become the first man to compete in the Miss USA pageant.
“Kataluna Enriquez was crowned the winner Sunday at the South Point hotel-casino in Las Vegas,” the Associated Press reported.
Enriquez is a “healthcare worker” and focuses on so-called LGBT health issues.
“Huge thank you to everyone who supported me from day one,” the winner wrote on Instagram. “My community, you are always in my heart. My win is our win. We just made history. Happy pride,” he said.
“In honor of pride month, and all of those who don’t get a chance to spread their colors,” Enriquez wrote on his Instagram page before the final rounds of the pageant.
The Christian baker, Jack Phillips, needs your support as he is again being targeted by LGBT activists, despite the fact that his stand against compelled speech and being forced to bake a "wedding" cake for homosexuals was vindicated by the Supreme Court in 2018.
Now, a gender-confused man, "Autumn" Scardina, has succeeded in getting Mr. Phillips fined $500 by Denver District Court judge, A. Bruce Jones, for refusing to make a cake celebrating the man's attempted "transition."
The LGBT mob just won’t leave this Christian baker make his living in peace!
But, Phillips and his legal counsel say they will appeal this ruling.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition which sends moral support and prayers to Mr. Phillips after this latest assault on his right to free speech and not to be forced, in his work, to promote an ideology with which he disagrees.
The fact that the court pursued the complaint by this gender-confused man, after Phillips' right to reject such compelled speech was confirmed by the Supreme Court, is nothing short of targeting by LGBT activists and harassment by the District Court.
In 2018, the Supreme Court overruled an earlier District Court ruling and determined that forcing Phillips to create a homosexual "wedding" cake was a violation of the First Amendment.
But, just before the Supreme Court's ruling, Scardina (the LGBT-activist-plaintiff in this latest miscarriage of justice) demanded that Phillips create a cake celebrating his “transition.” Upon being refused, Scardina sued Phillips.
"The request was for a custom-designed cake, pink on the inside and blue on the outside, to reflect and celebrate a gender transition," Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a legal organization protecting religious freedom and Phillips' legal counsel, said in a statement on Wednesday.
"Phillips’ shop declined the request because the customer specifically requested that the cake express messages and celebrate an event in conflict with Phillips’ religious beliefs," ADF continued.
"Jack Phillips serves all people but shouldn’t be forced to create custom cakes with messages that violate his conscience," ADF stated. "The harassment of people like Jack … has been occurring for nearly a decade and must stop."
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition which supports Jack Phillips against the latest LGBT efforts to persecute him because of this sincerely held religious beliefs.

The Miss USA competition should not be confused with the United States of America Pageants, which forbids men who dress as women to compete.
Those pageants also forbid participants who have “posed nude in film or print media.”
Earlier this year, an Oregon district judge upheld the right of the United States of America Pageants to only allow biological women to compete in their pageant, after a biological male who goes by the name of Anita Noelle Green sued them on grounds of discrimination after he was rejected on account of his being a man.
