Now liberals don't care about the 1st Amendment unless it's them to wants to rely on it


Recommended Posts

It's part of the left/gays culture war. THEY get protection from the Constitution, but the Constitution
is an "old document" when anybody ELSE needs their rights protected.
Ordered by a dishonest judge to not speak publicly about their faith and opposition to gay marriage?
Go judge yourself, dishonest judge sumbeech.
We desperately need the First Amendment Defense Act. Or Obamao activist judges
will throw all conservatives and all religious and all Americans who know perversion
when they hear about it...under the left's rampaging bus.
By now, most Americans are aware of the outrageous $135,000 fine upheld by Oregon Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian against the "Sweet Cakes by Melissa" bakery owners, Melissa and Aaron Klein, for refusing to bake a cake for a lesbian commitment ceremony.
As reported by the Daily Signal, after issuing the ruling, "Avakian then placed an effective gag order on the Kleins, ordering them to 'cease and desist' from speaking publicly about not wanting to bake cakes for same-sex weddings based on their Christian beliefs."

Melissa Klein said, "This [ruling] effectively strips us of all our First Amendment rights."

Not only is the penalty unconscionable in scope, far exceeding any reasonable limits, but the reasons for the amount of the fine are preposterous to any judicious person, judge, or jury.

As noted by Dr. Michael Brown, the list of 178 purported "damages" experienced by the lesbian couple because of the Klein's refusal to bake them a cake include…

"concern for privacy at home; concern for safety at home; dislike of going to work; distrust of former friends; distrust of men; fear of not being able to get another job; fear of being alone; felt mentally raped, dirty and shameful; future job opportunities damaged; hysteria; inability to find work; irritability with family and friends… migraine headaches; nightmares; and pale and sick at home after work," – just to name a few."

While the Kleins have vowed to continue their legal fight against such a ludicrous fine, they were forced to close the bakery. Aaron Klein now issues his own warning to every American who holds the same principled stand on natural marriage…

"For years, we've heard same-sex marriage will not affect anybody. I'm here firsthand to tell everyone in America that it has already impacted people. Christians, get ready to take a stand. Get ready for civil disobedience."

+ + The assaults on our First Amendment rights are being launched on the federal, state, and local levels.

Right now in America, the nation founded upon religious liberty, people of faith are facing the serious threat of fines and/or job loss for standing up for what they believe. Christian-owned businesses are being forced to close or change their way of doing business.

These are harsh penalties causing real emotional and financial hardship, unlike the silly ones the lesbian couple allegedly experienced.

+ + Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) and Representative Raul Labrador (R-ID) have introduced the First Amendment Defense Act (FADA), which would prevent the federal government from discriminating against anyone who believes that marriage is a union between one man and one woman.

Following the release of the Supreme Court ruling by five lawyers whose judicial activism is now wreaking havoc on people of faith nationwide, Senator Lee issued the following statement…

"Today five Justices took a vital question about the future of American society out of the public square, imposing the views of five unelected judges on a country that is still in the midst of making up its mind about marriage. That is unfortunate, but it is not the end of the discussion, as Americans of good faith who believe that marriage is the union of a man and a woman will continue to live as witnesses to that truth."

"Our focus now must be on defending these crucial rights of conscience. That is exactly why Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID) and I have introduced the First Amendment Defense Act..."

Right now, in both Chambers of Congress, the First Amendment Defense Act is sitting in various committees for review while people of faith are being maliciously targeted by radical homosexual activists threatening their livelihoods.

Liberty Counsel Action is calling for the passage of the First Amendment Defense Act as soon as possible. That's why we are now expediting our petition to the leadership of the relevant congressional committees to aggressively move the process along.

We need as many signers as possible of the petition before the delivery next week!

Please join us today.


+ + We face an ominous threat to our families and our freedom.

As I have said before, the advancement of the homosexual movement's initiative coined "marriage equality" was only one part of the advancement of the homosexual lifestyle in America.

Now that five lawyers on the Supreme Court have employed judicial activism in ruling that homosexuals have the legal right to "marry," a flurry of legal and cultural consequences are raining down upon the Christian community. Churches, Christian schools, Christian-run adoption agencies, food pantries, and many other non-profit organizations will soon be in the crosshairs of the pro-homosexual activists. And we know first-hand that President Obama has no restraint in unleashing the bullies of the IRS and other federal agencies against conservative and Christian businesses.

That's why we need the First Amendment Defense Act! The bill will add protections for non-profit organizations, which hold to a faith-based view of natural marriage against the wrath of the IRS, and other government agencies.


Your signature is greatly needed as we rally patriots nationwide to help advance this bill in Congress. Click here to read the petition and to join with us.

God bless you for taking this important step with us!

Mat Staver, Chairman
Liberty Counsel Action

P.S. Liberty Counsel Action is developing strategies for protection of rights of conscience on the state and local level. The protection of our First Amendment rights is one of the most important initiatives we have ever undertaken. But first, we must have our First Amendment protections reinforced on the federal level. After signing our petition, please consider sharing this link with your likeminded family members and friends...

excellent article on thought control..... used to be just authoritarians


"is that people like Takei and Bennett-Smith are lighting their torches and demanding rough justice even on issues where they've already won. In other words, it isn't enough that Thomas was in the Court's minority, or that no college in America is bothering to listen to Young. They want Thomas and Young silenced, stripped of their status in their peer group, and to recant -- even after being defeated in public on the issue at hand."
