A federal judge ruled that a biblically based denunciation of homosexuality was a “crime against humanity.”
Recently, the New Mexico Supreme Court decided that photographers have no right to refuse to take photographs at a gay wedding. According to one of the judges, Justice Richard C. Bosson:
“…the Huguenins [the photographers]…now are compelled by law to compromise the very religious beliefs that inspire their lives. Though the rule of law requires it, the result is sobering. It will no doubt leave a tangible mark on the Huguenins and others of similar views.”
So, according to these judges, gay agenda laws now trump Constitutional rights to free expression of religion and freedom of speech.
Today, the San Antonio city council voted 8-3 in favor of an anti-gay discrimination bill “that would prohibit anyone who opposes homosexuality from holding public office or getting a city contract.” The bill includes the statement:
“No person shall be appointed to a position if the city council finds … [they have] engaged in discrimination or demonstrated a bias, by word or deed, against any person, group or organization on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran status, age or disability.”
According to Ken Klukowski, of the Family Research Council:
“If it’s passed, any person who has either expressed any belief in favor of traditional marriage or in terms of Judeo-Christian morality regarding sexuality in general, verbally or in writing, could be barred from participating in public life on that city council.”
According to an AP report posted at Red Flag:
San Antonio joins nearly 180 other U.S. cities that have nondiscrimination ordinances that prohibit bias based on sexual orientation or gender identity, according to the Human Rights Campaign.
There’s also recent news about an Oregon bakery closed by gay activists. According to the UK’s Daily Mail:
Melissa and Aaron Klein have been driven out of their shop in Gresham, Oregon – and are taking operations back into their home – after they say they received death- and also rape-threats and saw client numbers fall following their decision not to serve a lesbian couple…
According to The Blaze, which saw some of the hate mail received by the bakers, one read: ‘You stupid bible-thumping, hypocritical b**ch. I hope your kids get really, really, sick and you go out of business,’ and another said: ‘Here’s hoping you go out of business, you bigot. Enjoy hell.’
The couple told the news service their customers had been ‘badgered and harassed’ not to do business with the bakery and subsequently, orders for wedding cakes this summer were significantly lower than usual.
If they want to boycott the business and tell others to do the same, that’s one thing. But harassing and badgering customers and threatening the owners is over the line. But who can say anything to those doing the harassing, badgering, and threatening? To do so would mean facing the wrath of these evil thugs and those using anti-discrimination laws to harass, badger, and threaten those who oppose the gay agenda in any way. The foul, hateful comments directed toward the Kleins supports my assertion that the agenda to silence Christians is straight from the pit of hell.
As I’ve said before, there’s more to the gay agenda than equal rights for those who aren’t heterosexual. Most of us don’t want to see anyone treated as a second-class citizen, no matter their race, sexual orientation, or religion. However, the gay agenda is taking rights away from others. Are people not noticing this, or have the hatemongers already beaten us into submission?
