Religious liberty is a fundamental right of every American citizen. Liberals, of course, want to strip that right away from Christians – all in the name of inclusivity.
People of faith in the state of Mississippi now have a victory to rejoice in after a state legislation passed allowing businesses to refuse service in any capacity if it violates their conscience.
The law was originally passed by Republican Governor Phil Bryant back in April 2016. The ACLU, however, sued the state, calling the move discriminatory.
The case ultimately went to the Supreme Court, which decided to pass on it. The decision was praised by many conservatives, including Kevin Theriot of the Alliance Defending Freedom. In his words:
“Those who haven’t been and won’t be harmed by this law shouldn’t be allowed to restrict the freedom for others.”
Theriot went on to say that the law ensures that Mississippians “don’t live in fear of losing their careers or their businesses simply for affirming marriage as a husband-wife union.”
As you can probably guess, liberals had their usual hissy fit. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo responded with the usual liberal tantrum and prohibited NY state employees from traveling to Mississipi.
We have heard these cases before of Christian bakeries being persecuted for choosing not to custom-bake a wedding cake. The biggest problem of all this is that liberals are too selective with their outrage. They’re all too happy to target these Christian bakers but are silent when people of minority faiths do the same.
Conservative activist Steven Crowder proved this point by going undercover as a gay man requesting a gay wedding cake at a Muslim bakery. The owner refused. The response from liberals? Crickets.
Remember, it’s only when Christians do it that liberals come out with the torches and pitchforks.
Will the left’s own double standard eventually come back to bite them in the butt?
