What’s really behind the attack on religious freedoms

    The Christian Post: Yet none of these law firms is willing to stand up for marriage for fear of the overwhelming backlash that can be expected, one that would label them as bigots of the worst kind, no better than the KKK or the Nazis. As for the Christian legal organizations that are taking a stand, like the Alliance Defending Freedom or the ACLJ or Liberty Counsel, they are vilified and mocked on a daily basis.

The right ‘not to be offended’ does not trump the First Amendment

    Charisma News: Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Legal Counsel Jeremy Tedesco agrees: “We commend the commission for reaching the right conclusion that these cake artists should not be forced to violate their conscience, but clearly the commission should have done the same for Jack Phillips. The commission found that these three cake artists have the freedom to decline creating unique cake creations because the artists found the requests offensive, but all Americans should be alarmed that the same commission determined that Jack doesn’t have that same freedom. Like the other bakers, Jack happily serves all people but declines to use his artistic talents to create cakes that violate his conscience. The commission’s inconsistent rulings mean that the owners of these three cake shops may run them according to their beliefs, while Jack cannot. He risks losing his life-long business altogether if he continues to run it consistent with his faith. Such blatant religious discrimination has no place in our society.”
