Recently, I’ve been railing on the apparent war on religion in this country. On the radio show I see story after story about someone’s religious freedom being challenged. But I was wrong. When I went back and reviewed this “war” I realized it was all aimed at Christians, yes, Christians! Skeptical? Take a look.
In getting ready for my weekly shows there are no shortage of “Christian-esque” events being cancelled or moved from public grounds because someone from the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF), who I fondly refer to as the Freedom from Religion Freaks, sent a letter, filed suit, and made a stink.
For instance, a bakery in Oregon refused to make a cake for a gay wedding. It went against their religious belief. OMG (that’s Oh My Goodness for those not in-the-know), it’s time to tar and feather them. But wait, they have a right to practice their Christian faith, don’t they? Not in Oregon, where the rights of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) are protected from being discriminated against. Were there no other bakeries? What would happen if a Christian couple was denied service at an LGBT-owned bakery because the owners were uncomfortable making a cake that looked like Jesus or the sign of the cross with a scripture about men leaving the natural use of their bodies, or the one that says “when a man finds a wife he finds a good thing”? Would there be equal protection under the law?
Then there was the Christian photographer couple in Colorado who was fined over $6000 for refusing to photograph a gay wedding. The photographers declined the request saying they couldn’t accept the job because their religious scripture says it’s a sin. Wouldn’t you want the person who would capture your joyous occasion, to be someone who understood the moment? The gay couple filed a complaint resulting in a stiff fine for not shooting the wedding. If the reverse happened and a Christian couple asked to have their traditional family wedding (complete with lots of scripture and “God talk”) photographed? What if the gay couple who owned the photography business said they would be too uncomfortable to shoot the wedding? Would there be equal protection under the law?
