Here’s yet another example of how totalitarian this country has become. In Colorado, a judge has ORDERED a Christian baker to make a wedding cake for a “same-sex” couple. Further, the baker has been warned that he must serve future homosexual couples, too — or else:
A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday.
The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple “because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage.”
The order says the cake-maker must “cease and desist from discriminating” against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay couples who want to buy cakes.
Now we could dismiss this outrage as just another liberal activist judge throwing his weight around. But it’s worse than that — this case was brought by the American Civil Liberties Union. What does the ACLU stand for? From the ACLU web site:
The ACLU is our nation’s guardian of liberty, working daily in courts, legislatures and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties that the Constitution and laws of the United States guarantee everyone in this country.
These rights include:
•Your First Amendment rights – freedom of speech, association and assembly; freedom of the press, and freedom of religion.
Were the Christian baker’s freedom of speech and association protected here? Do heterosexuals and Christians have individual liberties in multicultural America?
The answer is “No” — at least not when we have to depend on the ACLU to safeguard individual liberty.
