Liberals like to gush their precious bleeding hearts all over the Internet, particularly on social media, droning on and on about how the world needs more tolerance, acceptance, and inclusivity.
Meanwhile, they’re calling for the deaths of all who disagree with them on issues like gun control, calling conservative women names that would make the devil blush, and attending rallies to purposefully beat people up.
What’s hilarious is their own hypocrisy is completely lost on them. They actually think their actions against the right are justified and that acting like a bunch of jerks doesn’t disqualify them from being “tolerant.”
Yes, they really are that delusional.
The wonderful pieces of sweet humanity on the left have yet again put their hypocrisy on full display against their favorite target, a Christian baker, by mocking the business with requests for Satan themed cakes.
Just regular chips off the old block, aren’t they?
via The Daily Wire:
Jack Phillips, the Christian baker in Colorado who was sued for refusing to make a cake for a same-sex couple’s wedding reception, and who is awaiting judgment in the Supreme Court, was taunted last month by a customer targeting Phillips’ Christian beliefs who asked him to create a cake celebrating Satan’s birthday.
The September 30 email requesting the cake for Satan, obtained by The Daily Signal, read:
I would like to get a quote on a birthday cake, for a special event. It is a cake that is religious in theme, and since religion is a protected class, I am hoping that you will gladly bake this cake. As you see, the birthday cake in question is to celebrate the birthday of Lucifer, or as they (sic) are also known Satan who was born as Satan when he was cast from heaven by God.
The email also asked Phillips, the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood, Colorado, to quote a price for the cake, adding that the customer wanted an “upside down cross, under the head of Lucifer.”
The customer mockingly referred to Phillips’ Christian beliefs, stating that because Phillips viewed himself as a moral person he should support the customer’s religious beliefs:
I thought I would seek you out, to bake this cake since you appear to be a very moral person since you refused to bake a cake for same sex couples. And since religion is a protected class, I hope you will be willing to bake this cake, so my small group of religious friends can celebrate the birthday of Lucifer this coming November, just a few days after Halloween.
Jeremy Tedesco, a senior counsel at Alliance Defending Freedom which is defending Phillips in court, pointed out that the Supreme Court would have to deal with forcing Christians to violate their religious beliefs by aiding Satanists’ beliefs. He told The Daily Signal:
The request for Jack to make a cake celebrating Satan proves the danger of using these kinds of laws to force people in the artistic profession to create artwork that violates their beliefs. The request from the Satanists is essentially the same as the request that Jack Phillips received from the same-sex couple to create a cake that violates his beliefs, because in both instances, the requester can say the law covers my request. For the Satanists, they’re going to say it’s religious discrimination for you to say no to a cake that I’m requesting because of my protected status. If we’re going to live in a world where these kinds of laws can be used to force people like Jack Phillips to create cakes that violate his beliefs about marriage, we’re also going to have to live in a world where people can be forced to create cakes celebrating Satan.
A business owner should have the right to decline service if performing a specific task could force them to go against their deeply held religious convictions. This is a no-brainer.
There’s no such thing as a protected class in America. Well, let me rephrase that. There’s not supposed to be protected classes, as we’re all, according to the Constitution, equal under the law. No one is supposed to have more rights than another.
Progressives claim they just want equality for all people, but that’s not true. They want folks they deem to be victims of oppression to not only be treated the same, but to have their deepest desires catered to by the rest of the population.
That’s unfair. You simply can’t have a protected class and force others to violate their beliefs without trampling individual rights and liberty. When one class of people is lifted up, another is stomped on.
If only the left could understand this very basic, fundamental reality of freedom.
