I think this is a major, major case. As I have posted around the Net:
I simply do not understand how these cases can be framed as discrimination from a legal standpoint. The provider is refusing to provide service because they would be serving a destructive political and social agenda. These are freedom of conscience cases, much more than freedom of speech. The compelled speech is just the type of compelled behavior (working for people who are destroying society because of their political agenda). It’s no different than being asked to take photographs of a Neo-Nazi event or a porn shoot and refusing.
There is no such thing as equating “sexual orientation” to race (or any in-born physical characteristics), thus legislation that equate it to racial discrimination is empty of meaning. It is a fraudulent concept at its very root. This is just one more case that evidences that every piece of legislation regarding discrimination based on sexual orientation is a fraud and must be scrapped. Lastly, and the most important point in all of this, is that once you establish a “protected class” for whom different laws apply, you’ve clearly done away with equal protection before the law.
Thus, everyone has a most fundamental right to discriminate based on sexual ideology and behavior. The right to total discrimination against others pushing pornography onto you is a fundamental human right. The right to total discrimination against prostitution, sexualization of kids, S&M, etc., is a fundamental human right. And so it is with people pushing a noxious and ignorant homosexuality agenda that normalizes homosexuality instead of trying to resolve it. Everyone who has such problems (LGBTs) is responsible for investigating their underlying psychological problems that produce their dysfunctional sexual psychologies.
There’s is nothing normal about having serious underlying psychological problems that pervert the ability of a person to establish healthy intimate relationships with the opposite sex. Simply because liberals don’t want to face the problems involved, doesn’t make homosexuality normal.
Guaranteeing freedom of conscience, religion, speech and equal rights are all American traditions. And that’s why the homosexuality agenda is such a noxious, nasty, undemocratic agenda. Liberals and their agenda are going against all of these fundamental rights that are indispensable for democracy.
Having a destructive homosexuality agenda cannot in any way be compared to the black civil rights movement, it’s actually an insult to blacks, and to women.
Regarding the claim that “Elaine is being treated equally: all public businesses must not discriminate, as the law states,”
its proponents obviously forget the law starts with the Constitution and the 1st Amendment, and all the others amendments, before we get to this irrational and – patently unconstitutional – law related to “sexual orientation discrimination.”
The very fact that stupid LGBTs claim they are entitled to a type of protection that other people are not entitled to violates the very principle and the practice of equality before the law.
If we are all equal before the law, there is no such thing as special, arbitrary “protected” categories – as when some people have the protection of a law, and others don’t. Some people have a special category, and others don’t. That’s inequality. Either Elaine cannot refuse a single customer for any reason – the same principle applies – or she is free to refuse any of them – they are equal. Equality means no special categories or classes, no different rules, no differences in allowing discrimination for one group of people but not for another.
The claim that inequality equals equality is so irrational, it could have been taken out of Orwell’s 1984. What LGBTs want is inequality and, most grievous, to take away our most important freedom: the freedom required to live a moral, decent, wholesome life. Without this freedom, people are slaves to any destructive agenda imposed by the State.
A commenter (Jeffrey) said: “You are crazy if you think imposing your religious values on normal people, or else you’re the victim of discrimination, is equality. Religionists are not allowed to break laws, or harm others, because god whispered in their ears and told them to.”
Actually Jeffrey is crazy if he thinks imposing his destructive homosexuality agenda on normal people, or else he’s the victim of discrimination, is equality. People with a homosexual agenda are not allowed to break laws (starting with the Constitution), or harm others, or punish or persecute others because LGBTs are so dysfunctional and irresponsible that they refuse to deal with all their underlying psychological problems causing them to be deformed in terms of sexuality. And then they want to force other decent people to promote their harmful homosexuality agenda.
Everyone is responsible for taking responsibility for their homosexual (or any other psycho-sexual) problems, investigating them and resolving them.
That is equality.
LGBTs love to violate other people’s most fundamental rights and then claim it’s other people that don’t like “equality.” Obviously looking in the mirror is not their forte.
Given the zeitgeist then, it was a nice surprise to see that a poll taken recently says 85% of those asked are in support of Elaine! A wonderful turn of events against the stupid lesbians using the State to harass this wonderful couple. With Kennedy and the lipstick-on-a-pig Kagan though, I’m not hopeful at all about the Supremes.
Must-read article on this case:
The New ‘Equality’ Principle
By William Murchison
Our overwhelmingly liberal media would have us believe that only … let’s call them non-liberals favor the curtailment of others’ right to act on internal beliefs. Experience shows us otherwise. To dissent from enforcement of the new equality principle – everybody equal except those suspected of voting for Mitt Romney – is to fall out with our new moral leaders. You know – the ones fond of shouting, “Liberty,” meaning it
for themselves alone.
I have been blogging on how the liberal homosexuality agenda is incompatible with democracy for awhile.
