1.In its broader context, the case I’m about to bring up is really about what Democrats/Leftists mean when they claim to support “freedom of worship,”…

In 2013, President Barack Obama opened his proclamation with the statement, “Foremost among the rights Americans hold sacred is the freedom to worship as we choose.” Presidential Proclamation -- Religious Freedom Day Presidential Proclamation -- Religious Freedom Day



2. “…there’s a big difference between freedom of worship and the free exercise of religion.



3. Those on the left understand the difference, and that’s why they speak of freedom of worship and avoid the words of the First Amendment. Words matter. When politicians speak of freedom of worship, they are saying that you are free to worship any way you choose in your home or in your house of worship. But they don’t want your religion to affect the way you live your life in public or the way you conduct your business.

Democrats and Progressives say that you are perfectly free to pray and worship in any way you choose—as long as you do so behind closed doors. But if you are a Christian businessperson, you must set aside your convictions and pay for your employees’ abortions. If you are a Christian baker, you must set aside your conscience and create a cake that celebrates a same-sex wedding. You may practice your faith in your house of worship one day a week. The rest of the week, your conscience belongs to the State, not your Creator.” Sean Spicer, “Radical Nation’



4. “Same-sex wedding case among religious challenges on Supreme Court docket

Oct. 3 (UPI) — The case of a Colorado graphic artist who argues she has a right to decline to design websites celebrating same-sex weddings because they are inconsistent with her religious convictions is scheduled to be heard during the U.S. Supreme Court term that begins Monday.

The appeal, 303 Creative LLC vs. Elenis, could take up where a similar Colorado case involving a baker’s refusal to make a wedding cake for a gay couple left off.” Same-sex wedding case among religious challenges on Supreme Court docket - Breitbart



5. “The “free exercise” wording comes from the opening line of the First Amendment: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”

Bigots have a new tactic

Used to scream “We hate Fags”
Now they scream, “God says I should hate Fags” and the TRUMPCourt will support them

How is making someone take 10 minutes to go to another baker/photographer/whatever hating them?

6. In so very many ways, the Socialist Saint and Godfather of the Democrats, Franklin Roosevelt, damaged America beyond repair.
FDR put Hugo Black on the Supreme Court.
And here is the source of Hugo Black’s use of the phrase ‘separation of church and state,’ his office in the Ku Klux Klan.

Hugo Black's anti-Catholic bias, which showed up in his actions on the Supreme Court:

"... Black was head of new members for the largest Klan cell in the South. New members of the KKK had to pledge their allegiance to the “eternal separation of Church and State.”... Separation was a crucial part of the KKK’s jurisprudential agenda. It was included in the Klansman’s Creed..."
Hugo Black and the real history of "the wall of separation between church and state"]



America was created with the Bible and religion as a requirement, yet due to Hugo Black and the Democrats, these were erased from the public's view.
Not the KKK, the Democrat agenda, nor 'separation of church and state' are in the American tradition.


BTW.....the KKK leader was Democrat Franklin Roosevelt's first Supreme Court nominee.

Religions are outdated superstitious nonsense that should be discouraged.

It's becoming much too harmful as it interferes with science.

Allow the believers to find their private refuges in their churches where they won't do more harm to society. The modern world must move on to reality of the 21st. century.

It will be interesting, watching the SC twist the law to declare it means "religious freedom" doesn't exist for non-Christian religions, but still allows evangelical Christians to force everyone to obey their religious edicts.

Needless to say, PC here swoons in rapture each time TheState orders citizens to obey-or-else.

The First Amendment provides that Congress make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting its free exercise. It protects freedom of speech, the press, assembly, and the right to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.





Why do you oppose the Constitution, religious freedom, liberty, and American tradition?

When, exactly, did you begin transitioning into a Fascist????

Was surgery involved?

If they're Christians, they have no choice but to condemn other religions. And not just condemn but to actively work to destroy them.

The US constitution may not have been founded on a lie but it's adapted to the lies out of necessity that is the Christian beliefs of the judges.

Are they judges first or are they Christians first.

The answer may be based on their political persuasion.

Some must be living the lie by falsely claiming to be Christians!

7. "The Biden-Harris administration wants to deprive you of the right to live out your conscience and obey your God.

According to Kamala Harris, if you run a for-profit business, whether it’s a little Colorado bakeshop or a multibillion-dollar chain of hobby stores, the First Amendment doesn’t apply to you.

You are free to practice your religious faith in any way you choose, as long as you keep it within your private “inner sanctum.” You are not allowed to apply the precepts of your faith to the way you conduct your business. In the public square, you must obey the almighty State, not almighty God.




8. .... Kamala Harris wasn’t finished. Elected to the U.S. Senate in 2017, she
introduced the Do No Harm Act. It would amend the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993, stripping religious business owners of their First Amendment rights and forcing them to obey government healthcare edicts that violate their religious convictions and moral conscience. In a press conference promoting the Do No Harm Act, Harris said, “The freedom to worship is one of our nation’s most fundamental rights.”

She didn’t dare quote the actual wording of the First Amendment, which guarantees not merely freedom to worship but the free exercise of religion in every aspect of our lives."
Spicer, Op. Cit.

The court should support them, noting in the Constitution gives the Govt the right to force someone to provide a service they do not wish to do

9. “The new Supreme Court doctrine against religious discrimination

Conservative justices favor religious liberty over the separation of church and state.

In its last two weeks of a blockbuster term, the U.S. Supreme Court released two major First Amendment decisions dealing with religious liberty: Carson v. Makin, about whether Maine could refuse to fund religious schools, and Kennedy v. Bremerton School District, about whether a football coach could pray on the field after games. As expected, the court decided in favor of the religious claim in both cases. Together, these decisions’ legal analyses expanded religious liberty and free speech protections, while weakening the First Amendment’s establishment clause limitations which separate church and state.

Some have described the invigorated conservative majority as decidedly pro-religion. More specifically, the majority can be described as being hypervigilant against religious discrimination. Not surprisingly, this dovetails with the way religious liberty has been mobilized in the culture wars.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/poli...makin-maine-schools-bremerton-football-coach/



Never forget we owe this re-birth of Americanism to Donald Trump.

Without Trump, the Court would be filled with Kagans, Sotomayors, and Justices who cannot define 'woman.'

The Civil Rights act says you must provide services regardless of race, sex, religion or country of origin
Half the states have expanded that to include sexuality
