“Lawmakers should be very encouraged by the overwhelming, bipartisan support among Mississippi voters for legislation that ensures the government does not discriminate against individuals and organizations because of their belief that marriage is the union of one man and one woman.

“Mississippians of all ages and political persuasions agree with state leaders that no one should be punished by the government with crippling fines simply for believing what President Obama believed just few years ago.

“Big business and Hollywood have engaged in economic blackmail in Mississippi just like they have in states like Indiana, Georgia, North Carolina and Texas. However, unlike Indiana and Georgia, leaders in Mississippi, North Carolina and Texas have shown that when a strong majority of legislators stand up for the freedom to believe and the freedom to live according to those beliefs, the threats of big business prove empty. Now we know where the voters in Mississippi stand, and we stand with them.

“Long-term, political leaders who refuse to sacrifice fundamental freedoms under the threats of big business and big entertainment are rewarded with support of voters as their states find such policies lead to stronger economies, stronger communities and stronger families,” concluded Perkins.

    The homosexual left quotes polls to implement wholesale shifts in public policy when the polls appear to favor their viewpoint, but then quickly disclaim even the taking of polls when they clearly don’t. You don’t know where the homo-left stands, ever, with regard to a society’s right to self-determination. They deem themselves alone to be societies “conscience,” and damn everyone else to the fringes, or prison, if they disagree.

    The basic concept of freedom for everyone in a society is that I am free to live as I choose under two conditions. First, I must respect the rights of everyone else to live as they choose. Second, I must assume responsibility for the consequences of my actions.

    Neither of these conditions is met under the social engineering of the Left. That is because they don’t really want freedom. They want the rest of society to license their sin, then shut up and go away. Animal Farm explains this as some people being “more equal” than others. Welcome to Orwellian World.
