WASHINGTON — Mike Davis, Founder and President of the Article III Project, issued the following statement after the Supreme Court sided with an evangelical Christian web designer from Colorado on a crucial freedom of expression and religion case.
“There’s no shortage of Colorado bakers, florists, or website designers who will bake, arrange, or design anything. These Christians welcome everyone into their businesses. They simply cannot communicate a message violating their faith. We have enough room in society for Christians simply minding their own business. Those targeting them are the real bigots.
“The Supreme Court, in today’s decision, did its most-important job by protecting Christians from state-sponsored bigotry. Too many of today’s Democrats hate Christians. They want to chase them out of the public square, shut down their businesses, and destroy their lives. They’re not even hiding it anymore.
“Like other great justices before him, Justice Neil Gorsuch understands his crucial job is to protect all Americans of all backgrounds–faithful or faithless–from government oppression. Justice Gorsuch and his five colleagues deserve our praise for ignoring leftist intimidation tactics and upholding the First Amendment,” said Mike Davis, Founder and President of the Article III Project.
The Article III Project (A3P) was founded by veteran GOP operative and attorney Mike Davis, who, after helping win the Senate confirmation battles of Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, developed the reputation as a “take-no-prisoners conservative eager to challenge the left with hardball tactics,” as reported in The New York Times.
A3P defends constitutionalist judges, punches back on radical assaults on judicial independence (like court-packing) and opposes judicial and other nominees who are outside of the mainstream. Davis previously served as Chief Counsel for Nominations to Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) on the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary and led the Senate confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh and a record number of circuit court judges.
