Can They Force You to Say Things That Violate Your Conscience?

to put words in(to) someone's mouth

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.
