This is what principle looks like. This is what standing for what’s right looks like.
We see so few people who will stand for principle and what’s right anymore that it is important that we all know about it when some do. We should let it encourage and strengthen us to do the same, to not follow the herd and take the easy way.
When homosexual activists and their “useful idiots” tried to intimidate Sweet Cakes, a bakery in Oregon, into making a faux wedding cake for a counterfeit marriage of two homosexuals, the community stepped up and made an extra effort to give that business their business. So many people came in one day that the store was completely sold out of their goods.
Just as the legal currency of a nation has only one definition, so other important things have only one definition. To form a marriage, you need a man and a woman who are of consenting age and are not closely related to one another. If you don’t have a man or a woman to bring to the mix, you can’t have a marriage. You can’t make a bathroom with all male or all female parts, you can’t build an engine with all nuts or all bolts, and you can’t make a marriage without a man and a woman.
The folks at Sweet Cakes aren’t trying to be mean. They’re just standing for what’s right and refusing to participate in a fraud, the counterfeiting of our society’s most important institution: marriage.

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
