A couple of Michigan farmers, a man and wife, Catholics, got relief from a federal judge last week when he issued an injunction against the town of East Lansing for banning them from the local farmers’ market (http://dailysignal.com/2017/09/15/judge-suspends-citys-ban-of-farmers-over-their-marriage-views/?utm_source=TDS_Email&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Top5&mkt_tok=eyJpIjoiTkdFMk5XRTJaamt3T0RWaSIsInQiOiJWWTVjRk1XWTRWYithc0I2ZWxQbGdocTkrcWtKendkdE5EN2RGR3ZWWk1tdm1kODFNcVJFN1BZTVNtXC9XdHYrVVgwaGVCVytsc3dWRDdKcmlTZzVpU2JNclZOQkVOQXNhZHVaZCtjRG1uMHJWK3VxK1RnenhyNFdwSWU1QTZDMXIifQ%3D%3D).
And why were they banned from the market? You probably won’t need three tries to guess the reason.
Somebody asked them if they could hold a same-sex pseudo-wedding on their farm, and when the farmers said no, the commissars in East Lansing swung into action. By now I trust everybody understands that “diversity” is lib-talk for uniformity of opinion, rigorously enforced.
So they banned them from the farmers’ market, and these farmers lost three and a half months of business there before the judge stepped in.
If you don’t obey the Far Left, they will destroy your livelihood. They’d do more than that, if they could–but Hillary isn’t president.
Question: If you can’t decide what can or can’t be done on your own private property–is it truly your property? If the government can make you host activities that are profoundly offensive to your religious beliefs–well, then, whose property is it: yours or the government’s? Today you have to allow a “gay wedding” on your farm. Maybe tomorrow they’ll force you to hold the reception in your living room. Your bedroom might be up for grabs, too, a little ways down the road.
We can do our country no finer service than to defy Big Sodomy, and its sponsors in the government, at every opportunity. In God’s name, defy and disobey. Defy and disobey.
P.S.–I lived in East Lansing for a little while, after college. In 1972 it was a leftist basket case. Apparently it hasn’t changed much.
