YUGE WIN! Supreme Court Just Made Final Ruling – Liberals Are PISSED!

Published

on

A wedding cake is not just a cake in a Free Speech analysis. It is the artistic expression of the person making it that is to be used traditionally as a centerpiece in the celebration of a marriage. While the state of Colorado disagreed with this assessment, it seems the Supreme Court does not concur.

The Supreme Court issues a limited ruling on Monday on a Lakewood baker named Jack Phillips. Phillips is the owner of Masterpiece Bakery and he refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple stating his religious beliefs did not allow him to be an active participant in an act his faith teaches is wrong. It was his contention that because of the first amendment, Phillips’ religious objections did not violate Colorado’s anti-discrimination law.

The court declined to rule on the big issue of this case which would potentially decide whether or not a business can invoke religious objections to refuse service to gay and lesbian people. The Supreme Court justices instead issued a limited ruling addressing what the court described as the significant anti-religious bias on the Colorado Civil Rights Commission when it ruled against Phillips.

According to Colorado’s local Fox News affiliate KDVR – “The justices voted 7-2 that the commission violated Phillips’ rights under the First Amendment.

Justice Anthony Kennedy said in his majority opinion that the issue “must await further elaboration.”

Appeals in similar cases are pending, including one at the Supreme Court from a florist who didn’t want to provide flowers for a same-sex wedding.

The same-sex couple at the heart of the case, Charlie Craig and David Mullins, complained to the Colorado commission in 2012 after they visited Phillips’ Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood and the baker quickly told them he would not create a cake for a same-sex wedding.

Colorado law prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, and the commission concluded that Phillips’ refusal violated the law. Colorado state courts upheld the determination.

But when the justices heard arguments in December, Kennedy was plainly bothered by comments by a commission member.

The commissioner seemed “neither tolerant nor respectful of Mr. Phillips’ religious beliefs,” Kennedy said then.

That same sentiment suffused his opinion on Monday.

“The commission’s hostility was inconsistent with the First Amendment’s guarantee that our laws be applied in a manner that is neutral toward religion,” he wrote.

Liberal justices Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan joined the conservative justices in the outcome. Kagan wrote separately to emphasize the limited ruling.

Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor dissented.

In a statement issued after the ruling, Phillips’ Supreme Court lawyer praised the decision.

“Government hostility toward people of faith has no place in our society, yet the state of Colorado was openly antagonistic toward Jack’s religious beliefs about marriage. The court was right to condemn that,” said Kristen Waggoner, the Alliance Defending Freedom senior counsel who argued Phillips’ case.

Waggoner said Phillips is willing to sell ready-made products to anyone who enters his store. But, “he simply declines to express messages or celebrate events that violate his deeply held beliefs,” she said.”

Of further issue and still an outstanding concern regarding that of religious freedom and freedom of expression has yet to be decided, however. The issue of whether America has even the pretense of freedom in a country whose very foundation is rooted in religious freedom and freedom of speech.

For businesses to conduct themselves in a manner contrary to their religious beliefs in a country founded on religious freedom is contradictory to our founding principles. Pick a position…either a private business has the ability to conduct itself in a manner consistent with freedom or it does not and if it does not? Just rename the United States of America and call it North Korea and get it over with. Your “free” country is dead.

Craig and Mullins were represented by the American Civil Liberties Union in their legal fight against Phillips and Masterpiece Cakeshop stated of the limited decision it was pleased the court did not endorse a broad religion-based exemption from anti-discrimination laws.

Louise Melling, the ACLU’s deputy legal director stated – “The court reversed the Masterpiece Cakeshop decision based on concerns unique to the case but reaffirmed its longstanding rule that states can prevent the harms of discrimination in the marketplace, including against LGBT people.”

There are many additional legal disputes currently pending regarding wedding services with video producers, graphic artists, and florists among some of the various business owners.  They also oppose same-sex marriage on religious ground and wish to opt out of participation in same-sex weddings.

Barronelle Stutzman, a florist in Richland, Washington, has appealed a state Supreme Court ruling that found she violated state law for refusing to provide the wedding flowers for two men who were about to be married, according to KDVR.

The Supreme Court justices intend to decide what to do with regard to this appeal by the end of June and a full ruling should be forthcoming at that time. It seems many would likely be against a Jewish bakery being forced to make a swastika cake for a neo-Nazi. Likewise for the KKK or any other group of that nature, yet it seems that when it comes to certain people groups, freedom of speech, religion, or expression no longer exists.

As we await the full ruling at the end of June from the Supreme Court, we shall see if this is allowed to stand. Some in the LGBTQ community view this ruling as a personal attack and are actively looking to seek out Christian businesses and individuals to target with regards to this issue. One thing is clear, this is far from over.

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

Published

* By

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Published

...

* By

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
