Spreading “civil rights commissions” in most cities and states are turning toward anti-Christian persecution, when Democrats and Judges rule that homosexual “rights” take precedence over Religious Freedom to opt out.
Such was the case last week, when a pro-gay Judge in Colorado supported a pro-gay “rights” commission to enforce a Democrat non-discrimination law that openly punishes Christians.
Jack Phillips, a Christian baker, was deemed to have no First Amendment protections, no right to protest, no free speech, no freedom of religion. Instead he was warned by Judge Robert N. Spencer that he must personally help celebrate homosexual “wedding” ceremonies or face $500 fines per future incident or jail.
Watch! Dr. Chaps’ 7-minute TV commentary on the Judge who ordered a Christian baker to participate in a homosexual “wedding” ceremony.
Jack Phillips’ reply? He’d rather go to jail, than compromise his faith, conscience, and religious belief.
This man is a hero, and needs some legislators willing to change so-called “non-discrimination” laws into religious freedom laws.
Let’s petition Congress to defend religious freedom and defeat the national ENDA bill that would punish Christians like Jack Phillips in all 50 states…
Senate votes 64-32 to punish Christian business owners. Take action!
The U.S. Senate voted 64-32 to force the gay ENDA agenda upon Christian Business Owners, trampling our religious freedoms, and forcing Christians into bankruptcy and lawsuits if they refuse to hire homosexuals that oppose their corporate mission.
Seven Senate Republicans and all Democrats betrayed family values conservatives. Roll Call reports GOP senators who supported moving forward with the bill included Susan Collinsof Maine, Dean Heller of Nevada, Mark S. Kirk of Illinois, Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, RobPortman of Ohio, Orrin G. Hatch of Utah and Patrick J. Toomey of Pennsylvania.
With supporters Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., and Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, not present, the vote initially appeared as if it would fall short. The drama was heightened by a small number of Republicans concerned about religious exemptions in the bill.
Collins called Sen. Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y., into the GOP cloakroom to broker a deal to get the needed votes, according to a senior Senate Democratic aide. And with supporters hovering one vote shy of the 60 needed, Portman and Toomey emerged to provide the 60th and 61st votes.
Watch! Dr. Chaps’ new TV interview with Will Perkins on the history of Colorado Amendment 2 which banned homosexual “marriage” in Colorado.
The bill now moves to the House of Representatives.
The bill would bar employers with 15 or more workers from using a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity as the basis for making employment decisions, including hiring, firing, compensation or promotion,” reports AP.
Heritage Action said Friday that the bill would ‘severely undermine civil liberties … and trample on religious liberty’ while potentially undermining job creation. The conservative organization called for a vote against the bill and said it would record the vote on its legislative scorecard.
Dr. Chaps’ comment: For-profit business owners have NO religious exemptions, which will force Christians to choose: either quit your business or hire gays who may directly oppose the mission of your corporation. Owners of Bible publishers, Christian bookstores, Chick-Fil-A and Hobby Lobby will no longer be permitted to operate a business that honors God and fulfills their owner’s mission to promote godliness in the marketplace.
Let’s petition all 435 Congressmen to OPPOSE and FILIBUSTER this bad ENDA bill.
Friends, their version of tolerance now requires bankrupting Christian employers, or any public restaurant or retail store that refuses men full access to women’s bathrooms. We must take action to stop ENDA from becoming law.
God Bless you, in Jesus’ name,
