The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLADD) recently put out a video on Youtube. It features two pastors in the Christian church and one Muslim speaking out against Jack Phillips making the claim that he wants to discriminate against homosexuals.
That is not true. Let us hear from Jack Phillps himself.
I’m happy to sell a cake to anyone, whatever his or her sexual identity. People should be free to make their own moral choices. I don’t have to agree with them. But I am responsible for my own choices. And it was that responsibility that led me to decline when two gentlemen came into my shop and invited me to create a wedding cake for their same-sex ceremony.
What a cake celebrating this event would communicate was a message that contradicts my deepest religious convictions, and as an artist, that’s just not something I’m able to do, so I politely declined…But this wasn’t just a business decision. More than anything else, it was a reflection of my commitment to my faith. My religious convictions on this are grounded in the biblical teaching that God designed marriage as the union of one man and one woman.
Obviously, not everyone shares those convictions. I don’t expect them to. Each of us makes our own choices; each of us decides how closely we will hold to, defend and live out those choices.
But the gospel of progressive statism does not agree, and right now they want you to submit to the rainbow jihad. We can go on for hours why that is the case, but one thing is for sure: the state wants to take God place, and wants to separate people from their faith and submit to them. In their mockery of God, they want to prove that God is not needed. Also, God warns his people about homosexuality and how it is an abomination, from the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah at God’s own hand, to the holiness code God gave to Moses, to Paul’s warning that the homosexuals will not inherit the Kingdom of God. God is going to discriminate against the unholy and among them are homosexuals.
The good news is that the unholy can repent and conform to God’s image. Jesus does open doors and welcomes sinners (as one of the pastors in the video claims) but no, he and his father expect you to clean up your act. The Holy Trinity is not going affirm your sin and allow you to continue in it without paying the price.
Sadly it’s about bigotry for the LGBTQ but not for the Christian… right or wrong. I don’t think Phillips is a bigoted person. He just does not want to affirm the LGBTQ agenda that they want to push on America and the world. If the LGBTQ has it has way, they will only steal life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness from one group in order for another to have more rights. Pay attention to Jack’s story, because those very things were stolen by the rainbow jihad and their progressive sympathizers.
GLAAD wants us to the drop the “F Word.” We in the liberty camp must not. It is not that F word which is truly a bad one, but rather it’s about “Freedom.” In this case, “Freedom of Association.”
