One would have to live in a cave to not see the homosexual agenda pervading our culture. We cannot turn on the news without hearing of another organization forced to bow the knee. Our government is on board, and since we now live in a “top-down” society everyone is encouraged to hop on the boat too. We have been hearing for months and months about Christian bakeries getting fined or penalized for not baking cakes for gay weddings, employees sent to therapy, or businesses being shut down. It is atrocious given that they are private businesses and should be able to refuse as they wish. This is central to free markets, private businesses, private property, and a free America (well…..). More importantly, there is a First Amendment right.
I have wondered though, what would happen if the tables were turned. Currently, if a gay couple requests that a Christian bakery make a pro-gay cake or a private wedding organization perform a same-sex wedding, and they decline for religious reasons or because it violates their conscience, the State will step in and become the bully. But is this one sided? Would this happen if the tables were turned?
Well, they were turned. Shoebat.com decided to call 13 prominent pro-gay bakers and ask them to make a cake with the message, “Gay marriage is wrong.”
“Each one denied us service, and even used deviant insults and obscenities against us,” he said.
“One baker even said that she would make me a cookie with a large phallus on it just to insult us because we are Christian. We recorded all of this in a video that will stun the American people as to how militant and intolerant the homosexual bakers were,” said Shoebat.
Watch the videos. See the hate. See that this is a one sided issue. Why? Because the government says so. One side answers with a simple declination and the other with hate. Yet the former are the bigots.
What about the “I Can’t Breathe” T-shirts that the NBA is wearing. Someone had to print those. What if another group went into that same T-shirt shop desiring to print an “Eric Garner Deserved to Die” T-shirt…..would they deny them that service? They should have to right to do so, I think anyone would agree. So why should this not be applied across the board? More discussion on that here.
See, any pro-gay bakery or pro gay wedding company would be appalled at the request to make a “Gay marriage is wrong” cake. They should simply have the right to decline. The issue is not who can win the game. The issue is that a private business should be able to refuse service to anyone it wishes, especially if it violates their conscience and beliefs to promote such a cake or marriage. A Christian bakery or wedding company also should be able to decline based on their conscience and beliefs. It is simple, yet our government has taken it into their hands to see a one sided agenda pushed.
