Amongst all the equal sign bumperstickers, waving rainbow flags, and the plethora of hashtags #LoveIsLove, was also the rhetoric that went something like this: who are you to tell someone who they can love and who they cannot love? It was a false narrative, a zombie-like strawman which just wouldn’t die. Of course there was never anyone who said “you cannot love that person.” No one. What was said was, “Marriage is between a man and a woman.” What was said in response? “How will the passage of gay marriage affect you?” Remember?

Turns out the gay mafia movement knew exactly what they were doing in the fight for “gay rights,” because now they’re heaping praise and boas on Barack Obama’s administration for making it easier to target religious and conservative groups who oppose gay marriage. From The Daily Caller:
The Human Rights Campaign — America’s largest gay and transgender civil rights group — is celebrating this week’s decision by the U.S. Department of Education to create a searchable database targeting faith-based colleges and universities that have sought exemptions from federal gay and transgender rights regulations because the regulations violate their religious beliefs.
“We have been alarmed by the growing trend of schools quietly seeking the right to discriminate against LGBT students, and not disclosing that information publicly,” Human Rights Campaign president Chad Griffin said in a Tuesday press release lauding the Obama administration’s decision.
“We believe that religious liberty is a bedrock principle of our nation,” Griffin assured on Tuesday. “However,” he firmly added, “faith should never be used as a guise for discrimination.”
Okay, want to know my favorite part? The last bit. “We believe that religious liberty is a bedrock principle of our nation… HOWEVER…”
Nope, that’s not how the Bill of Rights works, sir. The First Amendment was established to protect the citizenry from the government. Actually that’s what the entire Constitution is for. The Founding Fathers knew people in power are susceptible to corruption. They lived under it courtesy of the British Empire. They were, of course, more right than they knew. None of the Amendments have asterisks. None of the Amendments have exceptions. None of the Amendments were written in rainbow ink. Nor was the Constitution adorned with penis stickers. Just saying.
Now, am I at all surprised that after the Gaystapo got its way via the Supreme Court that they’re next target would be religious or conservative institutions who want to stay religious and conservative by keeping all things straight and narrow? No, and neither should you. Since we’re getting all historical and literary, remember the children’s book If You Give a Mouse a Cookie? Reference that crap.
Bakeries who want to just serve heterosexual couples? Targeted. Photographers who prefer to snap photos of a man marrying a woman? Targeted. Churches who want to keep things traditional with one man and one woman? Targeted.
Obama’s Department of Education is lending their helpful hand. The government, who’s only rules are in the Constitution, the First Amendment being to protect your religious freedom, is after you for your religious freedom. Irony? Yeah, but not the good kind.
You bitter clingers holding to your Bibles and your guns, you’re next. Believing that babies come from one man and one woman? How dare you. Love is Love. Believe it, accept it, live it. Or be targeted.
