Granted, many of these students have never even thought about the issue except whatever they have been indoctrinated to think about freedom, the Christian religion, sodomy or marriage. However, their answers are telling as they comment on the recent ruling by the Supreme Court in the case involving Christian baker Jack Phillips refusal to bake a cake for two men engaged in crimes against nature, sodomy, and trying to pervert the definition of marriage.
Campus Reform provided the “student on the street” video footage from George Washington University.
Now, obviously the question was asked as if two men and two women could actually be “married” and they were not defined as criminals, the way the Bible, the states and our founders defined them, but as “gays.” That right there is the foundational issue here and as I’ve said time and again, if we dealt with the crimes against nature, namely sodomy, we wouldn’t be having a discussion about redefining marriage and bakers, florists and photographers denying services for such perversions.
Most of the students believed the baker should have been forced to bake a cake, even against his conscience, because “it’s his job,” as though people have a “right” to the services of another. They also expressed concern over discrimination without realizing they were discriminating against the baker’s conscience.
“If his job is to bake a cake for a wedding, even if he doesn’t agree with it, he should still have to do it,” said one student.
“His ability to exercise his freedom of religion ends when that infringes on another person’s ability to be who they are,” insisted another.
Still, another said, “The fact that our Supreme Court found that this was an okay thing, I find appalling.”
However, as soon as the question was altered slightly of a scenario of a black baker refusing to provide a cake for a Ku Klux Klan rally, the students said the baker shouldn’t be forced, but were obviously confused and understood they were contradicting themselves.
“Mmm, I [would] say no,” said one student.
“Um, well, yeah, no,” said another. “I mean, like, they shouldn’t, but I guess that kind of just, like, contradicts what I just said.”
No, it doesn’t “kind of just, like, contradict” your previous statement. It does contradict it.
The interviewer went on to ask if a Jewish baker should be forced to provide a cake for a Palestinian wedding
One student said, “As for his religion, I think that his ability to exercise his freedom of religion ends when that encroaches on another person’s ability to be who they are.”
Well, that’s interesting. These same students didn’t believe that about the sodomites demanding and suing a Christian baker believing they had a “right” to a cake from his place of business, did they? Nope.
You see, discrimination is bound up in the First Amendment. The freedom should be protected as we choose who we freely assemble with, provide services to, rent houses to and so on. And the doctrine of non-discrimination is an indoctrination in our socialistic society nowadays. We have the freedom to choose not to do such things with those we believe are engaged in unlawful behavior and that is exactly what Jack Phillips did. It’s what the Kleins did. It’s what Baronelle Stutzman did. It’s what Elane and Jonathan Huegeunin of Elane Photography did.
Now, each of these should be able to counter sue to recoup damages from the attack on their rights and places of business.
Some of the students our universities are turning out seem to have no moral compass nor perception of what true freedom is. In 2013, students from George Mason University signed a petition to legalize the murder of children after they were born.
In the end, the lawless got their cakes, “weddings,” flowers and portraits, but they demonstrated just what kind of people they really are against those who would not provide them services. They are wicked, evil people who are in need of a Savior, and there’s only One true Savior from such sins, the Lord Jesus Christ.
