A Colorado judge seems to have forgotten what caused the founding of the United States. Let me remind him that the pursuit of religions freedom is what sent our forefathers to this land. They wanted to be free from oppression concerning their worship of the God of the Bible. But according to this judge, 1.8% of the entire population has more rights than the roughly 2/3 of Americans who are say they are Christian. That 1.8% would be the LGBT community in the United States. At the core of this group are some really nasty people doing anything they can to force everyone else to cater to what they perceive as their rights.
The case itself was a sham. You can read all about it here:
Here’s a summary.
In this case, the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, Jack Phillips, cited his Christian beliefs as the reason for refusing to bake a wedding cake for Charlie Craig and Greg Mullins in 2012. The couple had commissioned the baked goods after moving to Colorado from Massachusetts, where they married.
The unanimous decision maintained that “discrimination on the basis of one’s opposition to same-sex marriage is discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.”
It affirms several previous rulings, by the Colorado Civil Rights Commission in 2014 and theColorado Civil Rights Division in 2013, which found that Phillips violated the state’s nondiscrimination law. Same-sex marriage was legalized in Colorado in October 2014.
His lawyers say they may appeal Thursday’s ruling to the U.S. Supreme Court.
The ruling is the latest victory for the LGBT community in the ongoing battle against business owners who cite so-called religious freedom as justification for discrimination.
Recently, Sweet Cakes by Melissa, an Oregon bakery, was ordered to pay $135,000 in damages to a lesbian couple they turned away. However, they have since raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in crowdfunding to more than compensate for their fine.
There is nothing more disturbing than these types of judgments in the current cultural war against Christianity. I urge every follower of our Lord Jesus Christ to pray intently and intensely about this. Our country is literally going down the drain under the extreme leftist leadership we are being subjected to. Our only hope, as always, is our Lord Jesus Christ. Pray this tide turns in his favor. Pray for Christians being persecuted for standing on the Word of God in our country in our day and time. Thank you.
