As leftists move to make Oprah the next president and Costco cards the new green cards, we discovered a hopeful diamond in the rough newsfeed. Mississippi was just dealt a steaming plate of truth nuggets with the Supreme Court’s refusal to review a law upholding religious freedoms. Hope is alive for the children.
At this time we’re glad for sane judges, the right to refuse service, and gay fashion advice.
The Supreme Court is refusing to intervene in a legal fight over a Mississippi law that lets government workers and private business people cite their own religious beliefs to deny services to LGBT people.
Opponents say the law could lead to discrimination against those who support same-sex marriage.
The justices did not comment Monday in their decision to leave in place a federal appeals court ruling that allowed the law to take effect. A three-judge panel held that the law’s challengers failed to show they would be harmed by it.
The law says it protects three beliefs: that marriage is only between a man and a woman, that sex should only occur in such a marriage and that a person’s gender is determined at birth and cannot be altered.
This law doesn’t mean gays can’t get married. The legislation merely says homosexuals should seek marital services away from fundamental Christian chapels. Uncommon sense. And instead of that Muslim bakery, try the one owned by Sikhs. Then they can get the ethnic turban experience while ordering their chocolate, glitter-icing, wedding cake.
Restrictions on fostering/adoption of children by Sally and Sherry may also be limited. Meaning children wouldn’t have to endure blatant child abuse encouraged by society (see Letting Children Transition is Child Abuse Says American College of Pediatricians).
Just as with marriage, compromise is necessary in preserving rights. The LGBTQAAIP (silent F) community has the right to date, marry, and consummate. It’s their constitutional holdings. They don’t have the right, however, to stuff their glittered sequined tux down our face orifices.
And now, we present a discussion with a real-life gay. In the flesh. Complete with high-pitched vocal usage.
