Liberals like to pretend they are tolerant of everyone’s belief system. The reality is that they are only tolerant of their OWN belief system.
Any person they encounter that does not 100% agree with their liberal viewpoints is instantly labeled a bigot, hater, or other words I cannot type out for this publication.
The Left’s hypocrisy knows no boundaries. They claim to love everyone for who they are but crucify anyone who stands up for their own beliefs that oppose the liberal agenda.
And that is why we have a silly case in the hands of the Supreme Court. Liberals thought a Mississippi law that allowed bakeries and photographers to decline taking gay-marriage jobs, based on their religious beliefs, is just pure discrimination. Well, the radical Left got a nice kick in the pants by the Supreme Court, who threw out the case and granted these private businesses their religious freedom.
From The Daily Wire:
The Supreme Court of the United States declined to hear an appeal of Mississippi’s “Protecting Freedom of Conscience from Government Discrimination Act,” allowing a lower court ruling in favor of the law to stand, ensuring religious freedom in the Magnolia State.
The state legislature passed the law to give religious-minded citizens the freedom to not violate their conscience. The legislation does not allow a business owner to refuse service discriminately, but provides protections if someone declines to participate in a ceremony or event that might go against their religious beliefs.
Republican Governor Phil Bryant signed the bill into law in April 2016. The ACLU immediately sued the state, claiming that the legislation is discriminatory.
District Judge Carlton Reeves struck down part of the law in June 2016, but a three-judge panel of the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed that decision. The court ruled that the plaintiffs could not “show clear injury-in-fact that satisfies the ‘irreducible constitutional minimum of standing,’” Life Site News notes.
The case then went to the Supreme Court, which declined to hear it, solidifying the Fifth Circuit’s ruling.
“Senior Counsel Kevin Theriot of the Alliance Defending Freedom praised the decision. ‘We are pleased that the Supreme Court declined to take up these baseless challenges,’ he said. ‘Those who haven’t been and won’t be harmed by this law shouldn’t be allowed to restrict freedom for others.’
“He explained that the purpose of the law was to ensure that citizens ‘don’t live in fear of losing their careers or their businesses simply for affirming marriage as a husband-wife union.’”
This is great news for private businesses. They have the right to stand up for their own religious beliefs, without having to live in fear of liberals setting a legal trap for them anymore.
Now expect the Lefties to whine and cry to the media for not getting their way. We can only hope they will find their sacred safe spaces and leave us alone for a while.
