Our Rights As Christians Slowly Vanishing

I've been saying it for a long time: the word "tolerance" will be what will bring this country down. Satan has convinced us that "tolerance" is an inalienable right and uppermost in importance in this downward-spiraling society. All expression of morality will be censored and suppressed until we have a police state by, with, and for the practictioners of evil.

Case #1:

Christian Photographers Fined For Refusing Same-sex Ceremony
State hits couple with $6,600 penalty for violating anti-discrimination law

The state of New Mexico has ordered a family-owned photography company to pay more than $6,600 for declining a demand to take pictures at a same-sex ceremony, and a lawyer who is working on an appeal says it is an example of how "non-discrimination" or "hate" laws can be weapons in the hands of homosexual activists.

"The Constitution prohibits the state from forcing unwilling people to promote a message they disagree with and thereby violate their conscience," said Jordan Lorence, senior counsel with the Alliance Defense Fund. "The commission's decision shows stunning disregard for our client's First Amendment rights, and we will appeal…" he said.

In its ruling this week, the commission found: "Vanessa Willock proved her discrimination claim based on sexual orientation." The Christian couple was ordered to pay Willock $6,637.94.

"There is a great threat to our religious liberties and our ability to speak out in favor of traditional marriage when these non-discrimination laws are interpreted in such a harsh way to censor Christians and others," he said.

Case #2:

Prof To Student: Keep The Faith, Lose The Grade
April 11, 2008

The ACLJ said it is representing Gina DeLuca, a student who has been punished with lower grades and has been labeled "closed-minded" by a professor, because he demands that students acknowledge the possibility that God does not exist in order to participate in his philosophy class, which is required for graduation.

In the letter to Suffolk County Attorney Christine Malafi, the ACLJ explained the problem started when DeLuca took the required philosophy class. She's been a student at the school for two years, and holds a 3.9 grade point average. She even got good grades in the philosophy class "until her religious beliefs became known," the organization said.

In addition to the lower grades, the ACLJ said, the professor has called the student "closed-minded," "uncritical," "hurtful," and "blinded by belief."

"While a college professor may encourage students to be informed about viewpoints and arguments that differ from their own, it is inappropriate – and unconstitutional – for a public college professor to make passing a required course (and thus graduation) contingent upon a student's willingness to express agreement with philosophical viewpoints that conflict with her religious beliefs," the ACLJ said.

I heard about the first case, but not the second, although I'm not surprised, Paula! Socialist progressives are definitely trying to run God out of this country and it really makes me angry. Now we have Obama saying we are religious because we are frustrated! GAG! He's such an idiot but there are plenty of others out there just like him.

Excellent post, girlfriend!
