NOW IS OUR CHANCE TO BE PROACTIVE. PRAY PRAY PRAY PRAY that this bill will be passed.
The first amendment makes this bill unnecessarily redundant unnecessarily, I repeat repeat.
In short, beliefs belong in church.
I’m usually opposed to bill riders, but this bill also needs a rider to protect private businesses that don’t want to celebrate homosexual couples. So far in the U.S., a church-owned wedding gazebo, a wedding photographer, a cake-maker, a national online dating site, a wedding trolley have all had to go out of business or pay enormous fines for their rights of conscience when ambushed by gay couples. Also, various hotels and B&Bs in the UK.
The First Amendment is all that is needed on this topice. All this other legislation (including ACA) tries - and fails - to legislate morality.
Dead in the Senate, even deader on The Won’s desk.
Canadian courts recently decided that any speech, including sermons, condemning the gay “lifestyle” was “hate speech” and actionable.
Given the lack of common sense in world today, we might need a Federal Law to prevent this sort of law here.
