OUTRAGEOUS!!! State forces Christian Baker To Bake Gay Wedding Cakes Or Make No Wedding Cakes At All

Published

on

We are starting to see more and more examples of religious business owners being asked and sometimes forced to violate their convictions and basically abandon free market principles to provide services for couples who live lifestyles their religion condemns.

In some situations, the bakers are wrong and in some situations they have every right to ask couples to go to a different bakery.

In the following case in Colorado, a Christian baker was willing to bake the cake but just not decorate it and in this specific state gay marriage wasn’t even legal at the time.

That wasn’t good enough for the state government and they ended up sending the bakers to a form of “sensitivity training” as punishment for their crime.

From Resurgent:

The Colorado Supreme Court has chosen not to intervene on behalf of Jack Phillips who refused to decorate (not bake, but decorate) a cake for a same-sex union ceremony—when such unions were illegal in Colorado. 

Erick and I spotlight this case in You Will Be Made to Care:

We have already seen how Jack Phillips Masterpiece Cakeshop in Colorado has been made to care by this wildfire burning through our culture. The details of the case are chilling. For years Phillips served both gay and straight customers equally. But when a gay couple insisted that Phillips bake a custom wedding cake for them in 2012, he declined.

According to an administrative law judge who reviewed the case, “Phillips believes that decorating cakes is a form of art, that he can honor God through his artistic talents, and that he would displease God by creating cakes for same-sex marriages.”

And get this: Phillips offered to sell the couple a cake he had already made that they could then customize as they desired. They refused, insisting that he be made to decorate it for them.

Phillips made his faith priorities clear: “I’m a man who is devoted to following Jesus Christ. He’s the one that’s in charge of all this…. It’s not up to the courts to decide what marriage is. It’s up to God to decide that. If we are living in obedience to Jesus Christ and the teachings of the Bible we are on the right side of history—no matter what they say.”

On August 13, 2015, a Colorado State Court of Appeals ruled Phillips must make cakes for gay weddings if he is to make any cakes at all.

His attorney Jeremy Tedesco said, “Government has a duty to protect people’s freedom to follow their beliefs personally and professionally rather than force them to adopt the government’s views.”

Some have cried discrimination, claiming that Phillips is a hater who refused service to homosexuals. But that is not what happened. He was happy to sell the gay couple a cake that he had made—but that was not enough. They insisted that give his seal of approval to their ceremony by using his baking artistry to create and decorate a customized cake that would celebrate their relationship. They insisted that he violate his conscience. And the government agreed.

To add insult to injury, the court ordered that his entire staff undergo training in the state’s policies—including his eighty-eight-year-old mother.

Re-education camp for bakers has come to America.

And then of course we have this…

No one should ever be discriminated against in this country but at the same time it is critically important we protect the religious freedoms in America.

But there is definitely a double standard going on here when it comes to Christians and other religions.

There is a thing in this country called reasonable accommodation and we need to start working together to make sure we handle these situations fairly.

It can be done.

Clearly, Colorado did not handle this well.

Trump’s Motorcade Just Came To Abrupt Halt In Indiana After What’s Spotted Right Out His Window

Published

on

President Donald Trump didn’t hold back when he expressed his displeasure with the National Football Lague (NFL) allowing players to kneel during the anthem. This lit a fire under the controversy, leading to more protests and liberals speaking out in support of this divisive message that entitled athletes were sending. It’s been nearly a week of this tug-of-war between right and wrong on this matter that has come to a head in an unexpected way, just inches from Trump’s motorcade today.

The protests have always been about disrespecting our flag and showing a complete lack of appreciation for those who died defending it. If it was simply to bring about “unity” and attention to supposed police brutality in the black community, these players could have shared their opinion on the matter outside of the National Anthem. They wanted the attention and reason to get publicly irate at a perceived problem they brought to the surface and have taken way too far.

Since the president spoke out about their actions, they protests become almost entirely as a way to show hate to the Commander-in-Chief who rightfully addressed the issue. All manner of threats and accusations ensued from there. On Wednesday, he was in Indianapolis when his security detail noticed what someone was doing just inches from the armored vehicles and snapped a picture.

This shot speaks volumes more than what these athletes have been doing all week on their knees. This background behind what brought this man to Trump’s ride sends a stronger message that what he realized he was making.

A black man was on his knee outside the motorcade for a different reason than those in the NFL, based on who he is and what he was holding. While what he had to say was not an opinion that everyone agrees on, there was another message that he didn’t know he was sharing but is the one that really needs to be heard.

The Hill reports:

An Army veteran who took a knee with a folded flag as President Trump’s motorcade passed by him on Wednesday says the president’s criticism of NFL players who kneel during the national anthem is “totally wrong.”

Marvin Boatright told The Huffington Post that he hoped someone in Trump’s motorcade would notice him kneeling while wearing an American Legion hat and holding a folded flag as the motorcade passed by en route to Trump’s speech on tax reform.

“For the commander-in-chief to call our citizens ‘sons of a bitches’ was totally wrong and beneath the dignity of the office that he holds,” Boatright told the Post.

A photo of Boatright kneeling went viral Thursday on Twitter.

While it’s Boatright’s opinion to think that what the president said was “totally wrong,” he has the right to feel that way without inciting violence since he did so in a respectable manner when the anthem wasn’t being performed. He knows what it means to honor the flag and respects what it represents while having a difference of opinion too.

The problem has never been people not showing compassion for their convictions or right to express them. It’s always been about a time and place and kneeling protesters knew what they were doing when they disrespectfully did so during our nation’s sacred anthem. It doesn’t make someone racist to expect respect either.

“As a veteran, and as an African-American, we have already and we continue to serve for God and country,” Boatright went on to explain to The Huffington Post. “But you can have a love of God and country and still be against social injustice. You don’t have to separate one from the other.”

While the injustice he speaks of is debatable, given that more black men are shot by other black men than they are by white police officers, he at least sets a good example that you can respect our flag and other people’s opinions while still making the point you say you’re trying to make.

I don’t agree with Boatright on this matter but can agree to disagree with him since he’s had the audacity to express his opinion in a peaceful manner that wasn’t meant as a distraction from honoring our country. He sent a powerful message in his own right and that’s what needs to be recognized by those who do it differently.

Trump can even appreciate this since his words have been twisted to mean something different than how he delivered them. All he wanted was for people to express their opinions in the right time and place, which Boatright did. If unity are what these kneelers are really after, then they can go about advocating for that in a way which actually promotes peace.

Chicago Cop Get Horrible News After His Entire Department Sees What He’s Posing With In Picture

Published

on

The national anthem protests reached a fever pitch this past weekend when hundreds of NFL players knelt when ‘The Star Spangled Banner’ began to play. This action ignited a social media firestorm with both sides of the argument battling it out online over why these players are being allowed to disrespect our veterans.

Some people claim that this protest is about fighting racial inequality, others argue that it is about police brutality, and then there is the logical option that is just about disrespecting our country and flag. In response, many conservatives have started staging their protests by boycotting the entire NFL season and canceling their NFL subscription channels.

One Chicago police officer wanted to make his feelings clear on where he stood on this anti-American protest. And, just as you would expect this officer has been reprimanded for sharing his “political views,” all while NFL players are treated like they are the second coming of Martin Luther King Jr.

A white Chicago police officer is in trouble today after he posted a picture of himself on Facebook holding the American flag. In the image you can see the officer holding the flag with a sign in front of him that says: “I stand for the anthem,” “I love the American flag” and “I support my president and the 2nd Amendment.”

Of course, there is nothing wrong with this image, but according to Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi, it violates policy.

Guglielmi states that while officers are on duty, they must refrain from making political statements which is why the officer was reprimanded. So, an officer that says he stands for the National Anthem, loves the American flag, supports the president, and the right to carry is a political statement? These messages are not political but have been our tenets for our country since we were founded.

Now, let’s couple this story with what a political statement actually looks like, shall we?

During the same time frame that this officer shared his love of country, two black officers were busy making a real statement. A black activist by the name of Aleta Clark entered a Chicago police station and asked the cops to kneel and put up a black power fist to protest the brutality of their profession.

Then these officers dared to take a picture of them doing this and post it on social media.

And, of course, the image has quickly gone viral.

Here is more from WSMV:

Two Chicago police officers will be reprimanded after they were photographed kneeling with a civil rights activist in support of nationwide protests.

Activist Aleta Clark posted the photo to her Instagram account Monday showing her kneeling between the two cops, while all three held their fists in the air.

She captioned the photo: “That moment when you walk into the police station and ask the men of color are they against police brutality and racism and they say ‘yes.’”

Clark also said the officers took a knee to back San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

The officers are now facing a reprimand for violating department policy against political activity while on duty, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel said he understands why the department is disciplining the officers, but can also see progress in his community.

“You have a community activist who felt comfortable enough to ask police officers, so the first symbol is we’re making progress on our community relations,” the mayor said.

More than 200 NFL players protested during the National Anthem on Sunday, opting to kneel or sit.

Kaepernick started the movement last year when he decided to take a knee during the anthem to protest police brutality.

For any logical person, it is clear which one is a politically motivated action and one that isn’t, and I will give you hint it isn’t the image with the flag.

The officers kneeling down on one knee with a fist raised is all about a political movement. Hello? Has anyone heard of Black Lives Matter? You know the group that calls for white genocide and the murder of police officers? Seriously, these police officers are actually protesting themselves.

On the hand, the white officer is expressing what we all have before liberal brainwashing took over our beautiful country. At least they are being consistent with their reprimands, but let’s be honest; the gentleman with the flag should be applauded and the other officers suspended. But that would make sense and we live in a world that is upside down.

NFL Just Received FINAL Blow With AWESOME NEW Pro-America League That’s Stealing ALL Their Fans

Published

on

When Americans turn on the TV to watch NFL football, the last thing they want is to be bombarded by the anti-American sentiments of “oppressed” millionaires whining about the “injustices” of our country. Over the past couple of weeks nearly-empty stadiums and viewership plummeting into the double digits has spelled disaster for the NFL of things to come, as angry fans prove they can easily find other ways to spend their money and precious time. Now the ladies from the The Legends Football League, formerly known as the Lingerie Football League, is making their sentiments about these protests known, and it will make you proud as hell to be an American.

The NFL has falsely portrayed itself as a patriotic organization, but we’re sadly realizing that’s not the case. The anti-American NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is encouraging these protests to continue, while lambasting outraged fans with the message that we need to “be more understanding” of these racist protests.

In an even uglier week of protests where players are now getting on all-fours pretending to pee like dogs and the continued black power salutes we see black players rendering when the sack white players on the field, the NFL stands to lose billions this season if something quickly isn’t done to stop this insanity. Now the outspoken ladies of the Legends Football League (LFL) is shocking America with their bold message for the NFL, whose stadiums they frequently play at with their female league.

“The LFL recognizes everyone’s First Amendment right to protest, but our nation’s flag and anthem are far too sacred,” the league said. “Too many fellow Americans have made the ultimate sacrifice so that our flag and anthem continue in all its majesty.”

They went on to say they recognize the “blood, sweat, and tears” needed to preserve the ability to raise the flag, and during a recent game, all the ladies joined to salute the flag and all those who have made America “the greatest country in the world.”

Looks like these ladies have a healthy dose of common sense to go along with their incredible athletic ability and good looks. Their defiance to take stand against the NFL is sending shockwaves across America, and these ladies’ games might serve well as a entertainment replacement for the hundreds of thousands of Americans who’ve sworn off watching the NFL forever.

If you’re not a fan yet of the LFL, these chicks are even tougher than most of the whiny protesters in the NFL, and I’m willing to bet most of them could give “oppressed” millionaires like Colin Kaepernick a run for his money.  Take a look at a few of these jaw-dropping plays. These ladies can not only inflict a serious hit, but they can take it like a champ as well, all while doing it in skimpy little outfits!

No doubt the LFL will be raking in an enormous amount of new fans after their patriotic decision to stand for America before their games. It will be fun to watch the NFL lose billions this season, as these protesting athletes as well as NFL officials are turning their backs on their fan-base that’s comprised of America-loving fans. Several days ago, we learned that the NFL is looking to expand these protests even further, as NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is now considering turning the entire month of November into a month for recognizing police brutality and demonizing our cops.

A memo sent to the NFL demanding that they turn November into an “activism awareness month” to protest police in America is being led by Seattle Seahawks’ Michael Bennett, Philadelphia Eagles’ Malcolm Jenkins, Eagles’ Torrey Smith and former NFL player Anquan Boldin. All these players have been very vocal with their protests all year, with Bennett swearing during preseason to continue Colin Kaepernick’s protesting “legacy.”

The NFL has been completely hijacked by race-baiting liberals who are now using America’s favorite pastime as a disgusting platform to spew their anti-American and cop-hating antics. It’s absolutely disgusting that the commissioner of the NFL is choosing to side with these protesters.

It’s refreshing to see these tough ladies taking a stand for what is right, and they rightfully deserve to be in the media spotlight. It’s time we start sharing stories like this, rather than giving these nasty NFL one more second of limelight, and send the clear message that if they want to continue to disprespect our country, they can do it in a stadium with zero fans.
