Colorado’s at it again, wiping out civil liberties because those are not as important as… “gay marriage.” This time the target is a web designer who says she can’t design wedding pages for same-sex faux “marriages”–even though she hasn’t yet actually designed any wedding pages (https://www.dailywire.com/news/supreme-court-agrees-to-hear-colorado-case-over-lgbt-discrimination-and-freedom-of-speech).
This is Colorado’s “Anti-Discrimination Act,” last heard from when these tinpot tyrants spent years trying to force a Christian baker to design cakes for same-sex parodies of weddings. What they want is the power to put words in your mouth: compelled speech. This is a pre-emptive strike against a citizen and her religious liberties.
If they can get away with that, then there is no First Amendment anymore. And where will they stop–with lions in the arena?
So this case is going to the U.S. Supreme Court, and we’ll see if the judges are at all serious about protecting our liberties.
P.S.–Well, that report left a bad taste in my mouth! I think when I get back from the store I’ll try try an Oy, Rodney episode. And then try to work on my book.
Should we be scared of a couple of silly old apostate churchmen with their homosexual rainbow flag?
Protected! by the First Amendment (We Hope)
After all, unlike Britain, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and all the rest of the not-so-free “Free World,” the law of our land, enshrined in our Constitution, the First Amendment, forbids the government to abridge our freedom of speech.
So California in 2019 could only “resolve” that it’s all Christians’ fault that sexual aberrants are miserable, yatta-yatta, and we’d better straighten up and “affirm” them if we know what’s good for us. Of course, that’d mean throwing our own core beliefs overboard–but if “progressives” can’t force regular people to do that, they feel they’ve lived in vain.
A word of warning: our First Amendment will only protect us for as long as we protect it–and may God protect us both.
You think our police are mindless servants of the power structure? They’ve got nothing on the cops in Britain! These guys are Herod’s men, right down to the cellular level.
Merseyside police have come under criticism (imagine that!) for their newest “hate speech awareness campaign” (https://freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3936773/posts). As you know, “hate speech” is anything the Far Left Crazy doesn’t agree with.
So, upon receiving a nod and a push from the LGBT “community,” the Merseyside cops created a mobile billboard to cart their new slogan around town: “Being offensive is an offense!” And it’s got the Organized Sodomy rainbow flag, too.
In fact, there is no such law. Someone’s going to be offended no matter what you say or do. You can’t have a law against “being offensive” because then everybody would be guilty and would all have to be locked up. On second thought, that’s just the kind of scenario that titillates a leftist.
Anyway, the public is more than a little upset by this campaign, likening the Merseyside cops to the North Korean state police… So let’s see how long it lasts.
Liberals will not rest until they destroy the Christian religion.
This is why they’re always trying to force Christians to take part in same-sex pseudo-marriages. In 2015 Australia was working on legislation to force the Roman Catholic Church to change its teachings. Here in America, the Obama crowd tried to dictate to churches whom they could hire to teach church school–but ran up against a 9-0 Supreme Court ruling.
Don’t expect that to happen again.
Say Bye-bye to Religious Liberty
Yes, now we have to wonder how our new government, that has no right to be there, that’s only there because of massive fraud, will go about dismantling our First Amendment.
The destruction of free speech is the jewel in the Democrats’ crown.
Our popular culture–a toxic dump
A publicist has invited me to read and review an “important LGBT+ and bilingual children’s story” about a “shy young boy” whose only friend is a doll… And I won’t mention the title, or name the author, because I might inadvertently cause a copy of this book to be sold–and my conscience won’t stand that.
Culture rot like this is why God afflicts us with Democrats. Once upon a time it was locusts. Then Huns. We never seem to get the message.
And oh boy! This book is a twofer! Not only LGBT+: you also get “families of color.”
This filth oozes into our culture… and we let it. We’re afraid of being called Haters & Biggits & Racists, so we don’t fight, we don’t speak out, we don’t refuse to go along. We sit there like mummified turnips as they sue people to force them to take part in same-sex parodies of marriage. We send tens of millions of our children to public schools to be “educated” by communist culture-killing teachers’ unions. We fund useless and anti-Christian colleges and universities to the tune of billions of dollars a year. When these people who hate us feel like putting us down, we hand them a sword.
We have not stood by God or by His law; so we should expect Him to stand by us? If you were God, would you stand by a people who tolerated Drag Queen Story Hour?
O Lord have mercy on us for Jesus’ sake!
It’s the only plea we can make.
My friend Roscoe has given up peering into a jar of Miracle Whip for visions of the future. He now consults his cat, who has wedged herself–one might even say poured herself–into a goldfish bowl. This gives her the power to convey information about–this is how he says it–“the future of the present.”
His reports are not encouraging.
“Rioting will become the normal means of deciding public policy. New lockdowns will apply to everyone but criminals. Elected officials will have to be approved by China before they can take office. Voter fraud will be legalized. Christian church services will be subject to approval by the LGBTQ Tribunal.”
He sits back with a sigh. “Sheesh! I thought the Miracle Whip was bad. I don’t think I want to see the future anymore.”
I can only ask, “Who will be responsible for all these horrible developments?”
“Why, don’t you know?” he cries. “The smartest people in the world! And all for Social Justice!”
“Any chance your cat is wrong?”
“Naw–she keeps up with all the polls,” he says.
Father Alphonse de Valk: d. April 2020
I’ve been thinking about what kind of country America will be warped and twisted into if Democrats win this election. The first thing they’ll do is change all the rules so that they’ll never lose again. Then they’ll set about “fundamentally transforming” the country.
One of the things they’re sure to want is the establishment of the kind of “human rights” regime they have in Canada–quasi-governmental bodies which help “gay” activists persecute and destroy anyone who disagrees with them. Like this:
This article discussed just two of many cases current at the time. In both, activists and “human rights” commissars tried to silence Christian clergymen, and succeeded in branding as bizarre, hateful, and wrong beliefs held by Christians the world over for two thousand years.
This has all happened in my lifetime. I don’t know how.
Rev. Boissoin died of cancer a few years ago. A “reporter” took it upon herself to see that a benefit for the Boissoin family was cancelled. She got the bands to bow out. The Loving Left in action.
May their evil return to them, and bite them.
Well, we’re paying for this now, aren’t we?
Corrupting the Bible: Galatians 3:28
All those years of adding to, subtracting from, bending, twisting, and mutilating God’s word, the Holy Bible. Turning it into man’s word and stripping it of its power to save.
Now the wicked bend their bow, the ungodly run wild, fully convinced their time has come and they’re going to take over the country.
At least now they’re out in the open where we can see them–if only we refuse to wear the blindfold.
Here’s another one of those things that our country simply has to stop doing.
‘The Price of Citizenship’
We all know freedom of speech doesn’t give you the right to yell “Fire!” in a crowded theater; but how did it ever wind up meaning that you have to say certain things, or else? Because some fat-head judge said so!
When did “tolerance” become the official religion of the United States, towering triumphantly over every other consideration?
What do we have to do to get our freedom back?
Wow! Brand-new moral laws! We didn’t even have to ask for it!
Have any of God’s laws been repealed? You’d certainly get that impression, from today’s pop culture. Like, they’ve all been chucked right out the window.
Ben & Jerry’s: Shills for Sodomy
It started with us wanting to be “nice” and humane and gentle. Now you get hauled into court if you don’t want to make a cake celebrating some freak’s “transition.” We wanted to be kind. Well, that good need didn’t go unpunished.
And we’ve got these companies like Ben & Jerry’s riding the crest of whatever disgusting new aberration comes along, shilling like crazy for it.
Absolutely shame on us.
