It’s not the Christians actively acting discriminatory against gays(who’s lifestyle is by definition a choice) but the other way around. Also Christianity is also a lifestyle(a choice of how to live as well).
Yeah, you see, it’s actually the Christians that are the bigots….. or wait, maybe it’s not?
No one targeted pro-gay bakeries, but gay activists target Christian bakeries. “Support Gay Marriage” is one Christian bakery was sued for refusing to put that slogan on a cake for an event to support the gay agenda. Yet Christian bakeries that refuse to make pro-homosexual marriage cakes are getting sued left, right, and center. They get fined, they get death threats, and they lose their businesses.
So Shoebat.com decided to call some 13 prominent pro-gay bakers in a row. Each one denied us the right to have “Gay Marriage Is Wrong” on a cake and even used deviant insults and obscenities against us. One baker even said all sorts of profanities against Christians and ended the conversation by saying that she will make me a cookie with a large phallus on it.
And how many of those bakeries have been sued, threatened, or prosecuted by State Authorities? Zero.
Even better — the alleged “pizzeria” that refused to cater a gay wedding….. never did refuse.
They were asked, hypothetically — and in fact said they didn’t care who came in to eat at their restaurant (gay, straight, blue, green, Martian or whatever); it was actively supporting an act their religious beliefs forbid they were opposed to and did not wish to support.
Note that the openly gay bakeries above, numbering 13 in a row that were polled, have not been (1) trashed on social media, (2) threatened with being burned the ground, (3) sued, (4) prosecuted by state authorities or in any other way had the same sanctions they demand be imposed on Christian bakeries — and pizzerias — imposed upon them!
ABC-57 reporter Alyssa Marino’s editor sends her on a half-hour drive southwest of their South Bend studio, to the small town of Walkerton (Pop. ~2,300). According to Alyssa’s own account on Twitter, she “just walked into their shop [Memories Pizza] and asked how they feel” about Indiana’s new Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
Owner Crystal O’Connor says she’s in favor of it, noting that while anyone can eat in her family restaurant, if the business were asked to cater a gay wedding, they would not do it. It conflicts with their biblical beliefs. Alyssa’s tweet mentions that the O’Connors have “never been asked to cater a same-sex wedding.”
So what did that business get for such a response? They were inundated by knowingly false reviews on Yelp (that’s libel folks) by people who have never been there and in fact a female coach at a high school not too far away tweeted what looks like a threat to commit arson:
Who’s going to Walkerton, IN to burn down #memoriespizza w me?
Betcha she wasn’t charged.
So let me see if I get this right.
You can pray at any church you want, as long as it’s not Christian.
You can have any religious beliefs you want, as long as they’re not Christian.
You can live to any religious code you’d like, as long as it’s not Christian.
We are in fact passing laws and enforcing them that act to punish people based on their religious beliefs and the fact that they live their lives to those beliefs, so long as that belief system is Christian.
This comports with the First Amendment and does not in fact exhibit a violation of The Constitution, Federal anti-discrimination law, never mind various laws enjoining threats to violent felonies (arson, for one)….. exactly how?
Does someone mind explaining how this concerted set of activities does not reach both State and Federal Racketeering and extortion statutes and why we who are not part of this pressure group should not boycott all states and corporations that back this sort of crap — starting right now and continuing forevermore until these bigots are prosecuted under the very law they are screaming about and got changed to their liking!
