Court: Gay “Rights” More Important Than Religious Freedom

One of these days, scientists should study the Pacific Northwest and see if there’s something in the water than turns average, ordinary people into raving lunatics. Because for the second time in less than a month, a court ruling from this bizarre region of the United States has made a mockery out of the Constitution.

Hot on the heels of the outrageous 9th Circuit Court of Appeals decision blocking President Trump’s immigration ban comes an equally-disturbing ruling from the Washington Supreme Court. Curiously, the religious freedom concerns that played such a significant role in the Trump case lost all legal gravity in this new decision.

Apparently some religions are more protected than others.

The case centers around florist Baronelle Stutzman, a Christian who was sued in 2013 when she refused to provide flowers for a gay wedding. Not, mind you, to a gay couple. In fact, Stutzman has proven that she has willingly sold flowers to gay customers on a number of occasions. However, she insists that by participating in a gay wedding ceremony, she would be putting her tacit stamp of approval on something that goes against her religious beliefs.

Alas, the Washington Supreme Court ruled that when it comes to the crossroads of the First Amendment and gay rights, gay rights win.

You know, like it says in the Constitution.

“As every other court to address the question has concluded, public accommodations laws do not simply guarantee access to goods or services. Instead, they serve a broader societal purpose: eradicating barriers to the equal treatment of all citizens in the commercial marketplace,” the court wrote. “Were we to carve out a patchwork of exceptions for ostensibly justified discrimination, that purpose would be fatally undermined.”

Well thank goodness there’s no need to do that. None at all. Neither Stutzman nor any other Christian business owner who has been persecuted in recent years has tried to discriminate against gays. Gay weddings do not have rights. It’s intolerable and insane that the courts cannot see the obvious truth staring them in the face.

Eh, scratch that. Because it’s not that these judges “cannot” see the truth; it’s that they are willfully ignoring it. They are part of a national trend – in the courts and beyond – to eradicate Christian beliefs and turn conservative ideas into hate speech.

We fear this is going to get worse before it gets better, and a lot of good people are going to have their careers ruined in the meantime.
