The LGBT Rights Versus The Christian Rights

       In the news one often hears about court cases surrounding LGBT groups, single homosexual couples and individuals suing or threatening to sue Christian organizations, christian owned businesses, and/or individuals. Christian businesses and churches state that they should be allowed to deny service to gays for certain functions and ceremonies, for instances gay marriages, wedding cakes, and balloons. The LGBT states that denial of all services to homosexuals is discrimination. The LBGT say that any such denial of service to them whether or not it is for religious reasons denies them of their equal rights. And the battle continues to sway back and forth between Christians, anti gays, their media and politician supporters against homosexuals, media reporters, and their large groups of media, celebrity, and corporations backing them.
       Where does each group stand in this conflict? The protection of religion is already noted long, long ago in the Constitution. The First Amendment guarantees freedoms concerning religion, expression, assembly, and the right to petition. It prohibits Congress both from favoring one religion over another and also from restricting a group or an individual's religious expression. Meaning that if a church believes that it is a sin for a man to have sex with a man then Joe Berry living across the street cannot force that same church to marry him and his new pal Bob within its premises. And if Jill, owner of Jill's Bakeries does not believe, based on her Christian faith, that a man can marry a man, then Bill and Bob cannot force her to bake them a cake for their own wedding ceremony that they are planning. The Constitutional law appears simple and clear and has, or seems to have been working for centuries but now there has been occurring some major knocks on the door to change the wording. Some people have already been sued by courts for not choosing not to support gay marriages. For instance Masterpiece Cakeshop, in Lakewood, Colorado, owner Jack Phillips was directed by the courts to bake a wedding cake for a gay marriage and attend sensitivity classes. The sensitivity classes was a slap to the face by a judge who may have known that this individual was only trying to live by what his Bible taught him, that homosexuality is a sin and should never be supported (22 “‘Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable. Leviticus 18:22). The court also directed Jack Phillips the owner of the Masterpiece Cakeshop to submit quarterly reports to the commission to conform that he has not turned away other gay weddings from his business.
      In  Washington Curt Reed and Robert Ingersoll sued Arlene Flowers in Richland, Washington for denying them service in providing flowers for their wedding. This is an ongoing suit but shows that this action of non Christians suing Christians for simply not wanting to support homosexuality is ongoing and becoming extremely problematic.
       When reading over this court case it appears that the judge personally wanted to paint mud on the owner of this bakery owner's face while laughing at his religion. The judge's ruling seems created to force the owner out of business. What happened to Jack Phillips First Amendment Rights? Why did the judge deny Jack Phillips his freedom of religious expression? And where is the term homosexual or gays written in the Constitution?
       In Indiana gay rights groups and their supporters are trying to force citizens especially Christians to not only accept gays as normal but to also endorse the behavior as some sort of prominent demeanor, a respectable expression. It does not seem to make sense why a person who is gay would approach a christian owned cake baking business to bake cake for a gay wedding, especially when it is well known in the world that Christians do not support homosexuality. There must be at least dozens of other bakeries in the Lakewood Colorado area that could have baked a cake for the two homosexuals. The judge must of known that. Why wouldn't the judge allow for the couple to find a wedding cake from some other business? Why force the bakery to disobey God? Why couldn't Curt Reed and Robert Ingersoll find another flower service to provide flowers for their wedding? Isn't there several other flowering business, who are ready to serve, who need the money? Why does Arlene Flowers have to serve the gay couple wedding flowers when their God tells them that homosexuality is immoral? What happened to the First Amendment? Why won't this US judge give Arlene Flowers their freedom of religious expression?
       The Gay Rights groups have their own religion. Their religion is their homosexual lifestyle choice and the belief that not only that they were born that way but that their sexuality is of first class importance, above and beyond everyone's else's rights especially those who do not care much for their religion. Homosexuality is praised and worshiped as something wonderful. Young children who are confused about their sexuality are told to be who they supposedly are. Homosexuals who want to change are told by "experts" that they cannot, once gay always gay. Individuals who try to encourage those suffering that they can change are told that they hate gay people. When one watches the television news or reads the newspapers one will notice that news about homosexuality is always positive always encouraging homosexual behavior. News about AIDS, gonorrhea, chlamydia is often hushed during mainstream media and is combined with heterosexual mainstream groups as if to avoid the important information that these diseases are easily preventable if people avoid both gay sex and sex outside of a monogamous heterosexual marriage. Enforcing same sex in society appears to be more important to the media and much of the US government than putting a halt to the rising victims of these assortment of sexually transmittable diseases rising in America. The many people who are cured from their homosexual tendencies by Christians, family members, friends, churches and their spiritual leaders are ignored by the media and treated as if they are nonexistent. But they exist and each of them have a story to tell of how miserable they once felt, not because of someone hating them but because their homosexual lifestyle was bringing them unhappiness. They personally wanted to change and through Jesus Christ, they did.
         The Gay Rights groups have taken special care to attack churches, religious groups, and Christian people. The Gay rights groups have attacked the Mormons and they seem to be on pace to winning. Earlier this year Jonathan Rauch, a Mormon leader offered gays and lesbians of America support for extended liberalize protection of them if they would support reasonable religious-liberty protections for Mormons. What a deal huh? It seems that the Mormon leaders are afraid that this gay rights group are, in the future, going to be a bad ass group that may be on a path toward punishing Christians sharing about Jesus in the marketplace or jailing them for teaching their kids about Jesus in their homes. Honestly, this may be the start of the cruel treatment and hostilities by the world for Christians mentioned in the Bible. And this is the very same reason why states lake Indiana, Illinois, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Georgia must gear up and prepare themselves, each of them, for battle. For the Liberal Lion is out on a prowl, to kill and devour each and every state, county, church, family, and individual who has not already sold their life and soul to him. Satan appears to have used this gay marriage, civil rights eruption as a trap to break apart this great country, The United States of America. Something that Adolf Hitler, The Soviets, Al Quaeda, and the Taliban could not do. Will gay rights succeed?
