I remember reading a story some time ago about some cake baker somewhere —– I don’t remember where —– being forced to pay a big fine for discrimination and had to shut down their business completely because they had refused to bake a cake for a queer couple wanting to get married and there was this big nationally-reported mess about discrimination and LGBT rights and so on and so forth. —– It got ugly and it got boring because that is all that was on the news for a long time —– or so it seemed to me.
In one of the most notorious religious liberty cases in recent years, Aaron and Melissa Klein, owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa, were found guilty of discrimination in 2013 of for refusing to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple because it violated the tenets of their Christian faith. —– ( Breitbart)
Well now it seems that a federal appeals court —– remember federal appeals courts? They are the courts that think they have replaced the Executive and Legislative Branches of The United States Government —– It seems that The Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals down in Mississippi reversed another judge’s decision that had originally allowed people refusing to service the LGBT Community on religious grounds to be prosecuted for discrimination —– and now —– according to the way I read this thing —– The cake bakers (and possibly other service industries as well) are free once again to adhere to their moral convictions and refuse to serve the demands made on them for services from the “Gays.”
I guess there is still hope for religious freedom in America.
Did I mention that the Queer Community and their bleeding heart support groups are demonstrating all over Mississippi right now? —- Bwahahahaha!
I guess there is a possibility still left that the religious people in this country can have just as many rights as anybody else —– and I find that to be a refreshing and encouraging development. —– While I am on this subject, I am sure there are no shortages in the number of Gay Bakers and other Gay Service Providers who could serve the needs of the Gay Community without all the “Block Busting” that has been going on around the country.
I thought this was kind of juicy so here is some more on it — (CLICK ON THIS LINK).
Before somebody reads this and gets their nuts in a twist because they think that I am prejudiced against LGBT People let me tell you that it is not the LGBT People that I do not approve of. It is not the people but it is the things they do and the things they stand for and the model they present to our youth here in America. Those are the things that I do not approve of but not the LGBT People themselves.
I happen to believe that LGBT People are born as LGBT People through no fault of their own but that the things that some of them practice are an abomination before God. But that is my personal belief and since we are doing “Beliefs” and “Religion” and “Religious Rights” here, I will share my own belief with you all.
And oh by the way —– I am not talking through my ass about something that I know nothing about here because I have a family member —– a close family member —– a member who was originally born as a son and who now thinks of himself/herself/itself as a daughter ….. so I do have some experience with this stuff ….. unfortunately …..
I fully support the rights of the LGBT People but not to the extent that they encroach on the rights of somebody else. I have always been a guy who has said, “Rights for everybody or rights for nobody!”
So if the religious at heart feel it is against their religion to serve the needs of the Gay Community then let them alone in their beliefs and let them be free in their consciousness before their idea of God but do not force them to go against their traditional belief system just for the sake of political correctness.
I am sure the LGBT Community can find many service businesses to fill their needs without causing trouble for the Religious Community.
