The LGBT community is already in the midst of yet another hissy fit after a federal court ruled that businesses shouldn’t be forced to serve homosexual couples if doing so violates their religious beliefs.
Now, the Supreme Court is gearing up to hear a similar case regarding the same overall topic.
One of the homosexual movement’s greatest successes was making it illegal for straight folks, primarily Christians, to adhere to anti-gay convictions.
But that was taken away last week when, as The Daily Caller reports:
The U.S. Court of Appeals, 5th circuit struck down a district court’s injunction against the law, which now allows business owners to refuse to serve gay, lesbian, or transgender couples on grounds of religious objection and also permits clerks to refuse to issue marriage licenses to LGBT couples.
The court’s decision is a big win for the protection of religious liberties, according to Kevin Theriot, attorney with Alliance Defending Freedom, which helped write the bill.
With the Supreme Court now wading in, this is about to get a whole lot messier.
The Hill reports:
The Supreme Court on Monday agreed to hear a case challenging whether a Colorado cake shop has to make a wedding cake for a gay couple.
The justices are being asked in the case — known as Masterpiece Cakeshop Ltd. v. Colorado Civil Rights — whether shop owner Jack Phillips has to make a cake for Charlie Craig and David Mullins’s same-sex marriage under Colorado’s public accommodations law.
Phillips claims that requiring him to provide the wedding cake violates his constitutional rights to freedom of speech and the free exercise of religion.
Phillips already won the case several years ago.
But the gay community isn’t about to let Christians off the hook that easily.
And, by “easily” I mean by accepting the court’s ruling. Because the rule of law and tolerance for others isn’t high on the list of priorities for the LGBT community.
