Opinions have been flying back and forth about whether or not Jack Phillips from Masterpiece Cakeshop should be compelled by the government to bake cakes whose purposes go against his religious convictions. He’s known as the “Christian Baker” and many are calling him a bigot for declining to bake a cake celebrating an anti-Biblical same-sex marriage.
Throwing out hypothetical situations isn’t normally my style, but I have to wonder what the reaction would be if the situation was a little different. What if he wasn’t a Christian baker? What if he was a Muslim baker instead? As with Christianity, Islam also disapproves of same-sex marriages. Would the people attacking Phillips over practicing his faith be willing to issue the same attacks against a Muslim who chose to do the same thing?
It isn’t often that we see these types of discrimination actions taken against people of other religions. Does that mean they don’t exist? Unlikely, considering the penchant for adherence to religious practices held by millions of non-Christian Americans. What’s more likely is that when the alleged discriminating actions are taken by people of other faiths, a blind eye is turned by those who would normally pursue them. Whether it’s the ACLU or any other legal group who often pursues cases against Christians, they rarely see the same opportunities when it’s another religion’s practices being called into question.
Just food for thought.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
