HOW FREEDOM DIES
By: Patrick J. Buchanan 2/25/2014 Religious Right Cheers a Bill Allowing Refusal to Serve Gays.
Thus did the New York Times headline, leaving no doubt as to who the black hats are, describe the proposed Arizona law to permit businesses, on religious grounds, to deny service to same-sex couples.
Examples of intolerance provided by the Times:
In New Mexico, a photographer declined to take pictures of a lesbian couples commitment ceremony. In Washington State, a florist would not provide flowers for a same-sex wedding. And in Colorado, a baker refused to make a cake for a party celebrating the wedding of two men.
The question Gov. Jan Brewer faces?
Should Christians, Muslims, Mormons who refuse, on religious grounds, to serve same-sex couples that photographer, that florist, that baker, for example be treated as criminals?
Or should Arizona leave them alone?
Religious freedom, said Daniel Mach of the ACLU to the Times, is not a blank check to impose our faith on our neighbors.
True. But who is imposing whose beliefs here?

...in the dead of night.
Seemingly without a fight...
When you construct arguments on fallacies and feelings, where everything is merely about the narrative and you are full of inconsistencies, eventually you end up here. A place where the contradictions can’t be hidden or sugar coated anymore, and today we are making a choice as a society. We are saying that the so called rights of homosexuals supersede religious and traditional values.
Eventually it will become apparent: that total equality for homosexuality under the guise of human rights and tolerance, is actually immoral and intolerant because you have to crap on everyone else (Jew, Eastern Orthodox, Catholic, conservative Lutherans, Mormons, Muslims...) to give this small group with their fetish what they want.
The faggots are free to take their business to faggot photographers, bakers, and, and florists.
It's not like there is a shortage of them.
The states need to leave the merchants alone, not fine, penalize, or prosecute them.
While I believe that the vast majority of "liberals" are just "useful idiots," when you scratch a "true believing" liberal, and you'll find a Stalinist just below the surface. ready to eliminate the believers of anything other than that which they approve. To paraphrase Stalin, they're willing to "break a few eggs."
I'm really hoping that they get hung on their own petard, when some Neo Nazi demands the services of some homosexual florist. But they won't. Instead they'll be lauded for their rejection of capitalism for "morality."
What's the difference between the two ?
Well worth repeating and precisely spot on.
Buchanan has never done one thing to help freedom. He tries to stoke the other side to suppress it.
To thunderous applause.
(see the immaculation)
A friend wears a T shirt that proclaims, “Kill the Intolerant!”
When the Muslim baker refused to create a gay wedding cake, all this will stop.
Word in the street has it that Ackmed The Dear Terrorist is “gay”.... pass it on
The same difference as between the Soviet Union and NAZI Germany during WWII. They're beliefs were the same, both equally brutal and murderous in their tactics, but the fight was over who would rule.
