How in the hell can Christians be fined millions for not making a cake that goes against their beliefs, but these muslims who do the same thing are awarded $250k each for violating their religious rights?!
How can this be legal? Why are Americans not FIGHTING back!? Why won’t the Obama admin represent Christians!?
And the Obama administration represented them in the case.
“The Obama administration actually represented the two Muslims in this case. But has sometimes taken a very different position in the case of Christians trying to assert their religious beliefs.”
She then said to Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano:
“So in the case of the Muslim truck drivers, the Obama administration through the EEOC is all in. This is what they said:
‘We are proud to support the rights of workers to equal treatment in the workplace without having to sacrifice their religious beliefs or practices; it’s fundamental to the American principles of religious freedom and tolerance.’
But when it comes to the Christian bakers, it’s not as fundamental.”
Napolitano was equally perplexed:
“That’s correct. It’s unfortunate when the government interferes in a private dispute over religious views, and takes sides, and chooses one religion over another.”
To their point, the Christian owners of “Melissa’s Sweet Cakes” were fined $135,000 by the state of Oregon for refusing to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple. And Kentucky clerk Kim Davis was jailed for refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses.
Napolitano offered an explanation for the administration’s interest in the Muslim truck driver case:
“The way the feds intervened … they wanted this case because they wanted to make the point that they’ve now made.”
The U.S government and the courts can’t legally have one set of laws for Christians and another set of laws for Muslims and other religious groups. This court’s ruling throws into relief that not all Americans are legally recognized as possessing religious liberty and freedom of conscience.
