WND Exclusive – THE SUPREME COURT’S INDECISIVE DECISION

Now that all the talking heads and other experts have weighed in on the recent Supreme Court decision – let me add my two cents.

The U.S. supreme Court handed down a rather limp decision this week in the case Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission.

The justices decided, in a 7-2 decision, that, “a Christian baker didn’t get a fair hearing before a state civil-rights commission and therefore shouldn’t be penalized for turning away a same-sex couple.” So writes the Wall Street Journal. read more

Our Religious Freedom Falls in the Lap of the Supreme Court

The supreme Court is set to begin its next session in October. It has a full docket when it gavels in. Among them are a couple Labor Relations/Arbitration cases, a plethora of immigration/refugee cases, and one which has “not been set for argument” as of yet.

Case No. 16-111 is “Masterpiece Cakeshop, Ltd. v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission.”

This case has become a familiar refrain to those who follow this nonsense – like me and all of you. It’s another case of religious freedom vs. the “rights” of homosexuals to demand a curtailment of religious freedom. I wonder what side the Colorado Civil Rights Commission falls on. Gee – I wonder.

In 2012, a happy homosexual couple, Charlie Craig and David Mullins, wished for Masterpiece Cakeshop to craft a wedding cake to commemorate the blessed event. “But Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, declined to make the cake for Mullins and Craig, saying that doing so would violate his religious beliefs. The couple then filed a complaint with Colorado’s Civil Rights Commission, arguing that Phillips’ actions violated the state’s Anti-Discrimination Act, which prohibits businesses from refusing service based on race, sex, national origin, or sexual orientation,” wrote MSNBC

David Mullins said in an interview that, “We’re not trying to shut down Masterpiece Cake Shop. We want Masterpiece Cake shop’s policy toward gays and weddings, gay weddings, to change.” read more

Christianity Under Assault Worldwide

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Conservative geeks like me, and a lot of you, listen to our fair share of talk radio. Often times commercials during these various radio broadcasts repeat, either several times during the same program, or the sponsor will purchase ads on a number of conservative talk shows.

One such ad which has been repeated lately is for the purchase of precious metals, like gold and silver. The commercial informs us that country X has purchased several hundred tons of gold and that investment bank Y recently bought 1 million ounces of silver. The inference is that if they are buying precious metals, shouldn’t you also? What do they know that we don’t and why aren’t we being told?

Precious metals have historically been purchased as a hedge against inflation or when the “fit hits the shan.” Preppers have long advocated the ownership of some gold and/or silver as a source of barter if there is an economic collapse – or the government comes-a-calling and decides it wants what you have. Maybe the government decides their desire is so great that they simple seize your assets, like your bank accounts?

Maybe it doesn’t need to be an end-of-the-world scenario for a government to do such a thing. Maybe they just don’t like you. Maybe it’s that you’re just too religious – too Christian. It could be that you have been caught up in a phony trumped up scheme of discrimination against a homosexual couple, for which you simply refused to make a wedding cake. read more

Gay Bakery May Have to Close

The year is 2015. It’s late August in Indianapolis Indiana. There’s a buzz in the air about the Colts who are undefeated thus far in preseason.

Not Fred and Ethel

Not Fred and Ethel

Judging by the mainstream press, this is not the only exciting thing emerging from the state. The press is still reporting on the nationwide sigh of relief, as just a few weeks ago Governor Mike Pence came to his senses, and facing extreme pressure, used a state executive action to rescind the

narrow minded and bigoted Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA).

On that day a reporter visited a lovely homosexual couple, Fred and Ethel (his name was Eddie – he changed it to Ethel. The reporter didn’t ask why), owners of a local bakery in Indianapolis who were thrilled by the news. Evidently, ever since they heard the news they have been giving away rainbow frosted cupcakes to patrons in celebration.

During the interview, Ethel, the one with the beard, said that despite being homosexual, they were also Christian and said they believe God loves them as much as heterosexuals (which, by the way, he does).

Fred added that despite their Christian beliefs, they didn’t care for Indiana’s RFRA and were glad Gov. Pence came to his senses. They heard from many sources in the media that the Indiana law was just one more obstacle to equality. read more
