Baker Sentenced to ‘American’ Reeducation Camp

July 29, 2014   ·   By   ·   5 Comments

baker_reeducatedIn a stunning blow to religious freedom, Colorado baker Jack Phillips has been sentenced to be “reeducated” along with his staff by a pro-homosexual court.

Phillips’ crime: he refused to make a cake celebrating counterfeit marriage.

In a politically correct culture, government decides whose beliefs have preference. In a politically correct culture hostile to freedom, government decides who can force some people to do what other people tell them to do, regardless of whether those actions violate the conscience and religious freedom of the person being forced.

What’s next?  According to the “logic” of the Left, we can expect to see:

  • People forcing a Jewish baker to make a cake with the message “Exterminate the Jews”
  • People forcing a Muslim restaurant owner to serve pork
  • People forcing a homosexual business owner to make a cake stating “Marriage is between a man and a woman only”

Don’t hold your breath waiting for that last one to be upheld.  Tolerance only goes one way in a Leftist country, after all. In fact, don’t hold your breath waiting for any of these to be upheld (except maybe the first one; after all, the Left has a particular loathing for Jews, so that first one might fly).

America used to be a free country, where Americans had the liberty to create a business and run it as they saw fit.  America used to be a country that not only protected religious liberty, but valued morality.

That America is on the verge of no longer existing. The First Amendment is obsolete.

    Remember what the Oregon Labor Secretary said: He doesn’t want to close down any businesses, the goal is to “rehabilitate.” What Orwellian horror.

      Of course. A compliant business, aiding in the counterfeiting of society’s most important institution, is more useful than a business merely quashed.

      Of course, if you can’t make them comply…

        Of course, they are lying. It’s, “that’s a nice business you got there. Would be a shame if something were to happen to it.”

        It is approve, or else.

    Inevitably, the more insistent someone is that their beliefs not be questioned (in this case, the beliefs that same-sex attraction is as normal as heterosexuality and that same-sex marriage is as valid is real marriage), the more likely it is that the beliefs are false.

    People who are secure in their position don’t have to resort to force to keep it from being questioned.

      Excellent point.

      And people who feel compelled to have incessant public parades to call attention to their lifestyles similarly “doth protest too much.”

Texas shows the way on abortion

Star Parker

We now mark the one-year anniversary since important new regulatory restrictions on abortion were passed into law in Texas that protect life and make this nasty procedure safer for women that choose it. Its four major provisions require that abortion doctors have hospital admitting privileges within 30 miles where they practice, abortion after 20 weeks of fertilization is banned, stricter controls on medically induced abortion, and abortion clinic facilities must meet the same standards as those of ambulatory surgical centers.

What if Americans really knew their history?

Bradlee Dean

Can you imagine if the American people really knew their history? America would realize that her founders did not tolerate these tyrannical usurpations whatsoever. Apparently, America is still in need of a history lesson. A lesson that will be a hard one to learn.

A Nation of Law, or a Nation of Anarchy?

Bill Wilson

Do we live in a nation of laws enacted by our duly elected representatives? Or do we live in a country in which a handful of elites can do as they please with no regard to those laws — or due process for those affected by them? This is the central question the U.S. Supreme Court must answer in the wake of Halbig v. Burrell — the court case that could derail Barack Obama's socialized medicine monstrosity once and for all.

Boehner Border Bill Bites the Dust

Robert Romano

Failing to get the 217 votes needed to pass, Republican leaders on July 31 pulled the $659 million border supplemental off the floor of the House Representatives. Republicans opposed the measure as doing nothing to secure the border or prevent the White House from taking yet more executive actions to grant legal status to illegal immigrants.
