Crumbling Freedom: Cake Artist Sent to ‘Reeducation’
Imagine being ordered to go against your religious beliefs, and if you refuse, you could be arrested, fined, or sued. That happened to the Christian owner Jack Phillips, of a Colorado bakery who now must make wedding cakes for gay couples.
Watch this video. Another alarming case of gay rights infringing on religious freedom.
This is simply nonsense. No one is being asked or forced to go against his or her religious beliefs. In a pluralistic society the overriding social contract dictates that those in business do not discriminate against customers. This is the price paid for being allowed to conduct business and the protections guaranteed a business by society. If a potential customer can afford a product or service that is openly marketed then the social contract requires that it be made available to them. Service cannot be refused to blacks, to Asians, to redheads, to Roman Catholics, to Jews, to those with brown eyes, to the elderly, to those with disabilities, or to persons who happen to be gay. It is not a matter of religious freedom, it is a matter of fair and equitable business practices.
