Not in the world of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Bernie Sanders, and a myriad of Socialist, Communist, Collectivist, Globalist, Liberal, Progressive, Democrats and Hollywood types. NOPE! According to their expressed views and actions, we have no rights as Christians, Conservatives, and/or Constitutionalist because we disagree with them and they consider us the dregs of society and the scum of the earth. In their rhetoric and diatribe, we are painted as evil hate-filled phobic bigots who do not deserve the same rights as those for whom they argue. They claim to be for equal rights but equal possibly falls into the same category as Bill Clinton’s definition of “is”. It means whatever they determine it to mean and Webster’s Dictionary would not be useful in their concluding the true meaning of EQUAL RIGHTS.
The somewhat surprising decision (7-2) by the Supreme Court regarding the Colorado baker who refused to bake a cake for a “same-sex” wedding is cause for hope and another reason that we MUST prevent the Liberal Leftists Democrats from regaining control of one or both Houses of Congress in November. I was surprised to find that liberal justices Elena Kagan, Stephen Breyer and Anthony Kennedy sided with the four conservatives deciding in favor of Jack Phillips the baker protecting his constitutional rights. The Justices ruled that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission had demonstrated hostility toward faith and violated Mr. Phillips’ 1st Amendment rights to free exercise of religion. They so ruled because, in their explanation, the Commission had not enforced regulations with neutrality.
You might be surprised to learn that Colorado officials had actually protected several bakers who were charged with anti-religious discrimination when they refused to design a cake with a quote from Leviticus condemning homosexuality. Surprise? No at all, because if you stand against the Bible, Christianity, or Constitutional Conservativism you are protected by Leftist Governments. I have been convinced that Mr. Phillips was set-up by some the LGBT and Leftist when he refused to bake a cake for David Mullins and Charlie Craig in 2012. He, along with a number of other Christian businessmen was targeted by the sexual-devolutionary lobby. I am encouraged because the ruling of the SCOTUS keyed on the word EVENT. Mr. Phillips had informed Mullins and Craig that he would happily bake a cake for them for any other event but that a “same-sex” wedding violated his religious convictions and therefore he could not oblige them in their request. He had no sign in his store expressing an unwillingness to serve homosexuals. He had no straightness sign and did not decline service to a particular type of people or any particular sexual preference. He refused service for a particular EVENT! In a nutshell, his actions were not the same as liberals refusing to serve Christians or Trump supporters but were akin to blacks or Jews refusing to service, respectively, a KKK or Nazi affair or event.
The idea that it is okay for the government to compel a private business to be party to any event that he/she finds morally objectionable is a direct violation of the constitution. Do we really want to cross that bridge or travel down that road where we so empower the federal or state government? The Colorado Civil Rights Commission argued that Mr. Phillips had violated the Colorado anti-discrimination law that bars any business from refusing service based on race, sex, marital status, or sexual orientation. The officials of the State either did not know how to rightly apply their laws or they didn’t care due to their desire to advance a particular agenda. Mr. Phillips DID NOT single out homosexuals or even faux weddings. If you dig a little deeper you will find that he also refused to create bakery goods with alcohol, and won’t make cakes celebrating Halloween or other messages his faith prohibits, such as racism, atheism, or any marriage not between one man and one woman. He has been consistent but the government appears to have singled out homosexual events to persecute Christians. The government SHOULD NEVER be allowed to infringe upon the freedom of association.
When we allow the PC Police and the Federal or State Governments to dictate what we are allowed to stand for in our personal religious convictions we create a slippery slope that leads to destruction. Most business people do not have a problem serving anyone but every private business MUST be allowed to follow their core convictions and not be forced to violate their religious beliefs to accommodate so group who disagrees with those convictions or beliefs. Do those of us who are Christians, Conservatives, and Constitutionalist not have the same rights as those who believe differently than we? NOT IN THE VIEW OF THE LEFT.
If you value your individual rights and believe you have certain inalienable rights and embrace the arguments of the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and the Bill of Rights you need to be incredibly cautious this November regarding your vote. If you refuse to vote you enable the Democrats in their quest to regain power. If you vote in such a way that allows the liberal leftist to win the election you participate in the assault on our freedoms and rights. You are the only person who can decide how to vote but I pray that you will both pray and consider what is at stake. I believe that if you do you will vote to oust the Democrats and continue our window of opportunity to restore America to her Constitutional Position and Condition.
God bless you and God bless America!
