College Kids Say Christian Baker Should Make Gay Wedding Cake, Change Their Tune When Situation is Altered

Funny how they change their tune a bit when the shoe is on the other foot.

Last week, the Supreme Court handed down a ruling that a Christian baker in Colorado was not required by law to provide a cake for a gay wedding, citing the right of business owners to deny specific services rendered based upon religious beliefs.

As you can imagine, the ruling caught the eye of the mainstream media and soon got blasted all over the place, renewing the vigorous “dialogue” in our nation over religious liberty and whether or not the government has the power to force people to provide services that may violate their conscience.

The folks over at Campus Reform wanted to know what students thought of the whole affair, so they trotted off to George Washington University to ask them first hand.

Not surprisingly, the vast majority of young people interviewed did not agree with the decision, nor with the actions of the baker, stating he should have made the cake, even if it violated his religious views.

“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.

Wanting to explore whether or not these young leftists would consistently apply their principles across the board, Campus Reform flipped the scenarios around a bit and suddenly the answers didn’t come so quickly or easily.

One student who said the Christian baker should provide a cake for a same-sex wedding wasn’t so sure about when it came to the black-baker-cake-for-KKK-rally scenario: “They shouldn’t, but, like, I guess that, like, contradicts what I just said, so yeah.”

The student who said the SCOTUS ruling in favor of the Christian baker was “appalling” replied that she was “not sure” about the new scenario.

Another student said the black baker shouldn’t have to bake a cake for the KKK rally since “the KKK is directly hating [the black baker] as a person, meanwhile gay people aren’t hating the baker for being a baker.”

Another student, in favor of the gay wedding cake getting baked, said, “Once again, we are in America, and if you’re gonna open a shop, you have to be willing to accept all customers that are gonna walk into that shop.”

A student was asked whether or not a Jew should provide a cake for a Palestinian, they replied with, “It gets more complicated, I guess. I’m not sure…I don’t know.”

This is proof positive that the vast majority of young people just parrot what they heard in school and from their parents, not bothering to think through the implications of their worldview because they are told that their position is right and that’s all there is to it.

Life is never, ever that simple.

Every policy has lots of nuances that could negatively impact a group of individuals, thus, these issues need rigorous thought applied to them to really see what the best solution is to the problem. The one that preserves the maximum amount of freedom possible it the right direction to take.

In this case, freedom of religious expression and the liberty to run one’s business according to their own personal convictions are of the utmost importance because they could cause issues for numerous groups of people at some point down the line.

Let’s hope being challenged like this in some capacity helps wake young people up to the reality that the leftist worldview is inconsistent and just plain doesn’t work when applied to reality.

Barack & Michelle Obama Purchase Home for Nearly $12 Million on Almost 30 Acres of Land

You’d be smiling too if you were a multi-millionaire…

Working in the public sector is not supposed to make people rich. For example, Barack and Michelle Obama were certainly not extremely well-off before Barry became president. But thanks to all the book deals and Netflix deals and this and this and that, the Obamas now live quite a comfortable lifestyle thanks largely to Barack’s time serving the American people. Ain’t that something? You can cripple a nation for nearly a decade, trash her, disparage her at every turn, and still wind up with millions beyond your wildest dreams!? God bless, America. From Daily Wire: The former President and First Lady received the keys to their new mega-home which occupies 29 acres of beachfront property. […] The house was originally listed for $14,850,000 but TMZ reports the Obamas managed to obtain a huge discount and secured the 6,900sq ft home for $11.75 million. PHOTOS: Most first lady’s don’t remain as active as Michelle after leaving the White House. The reason is simple: nobody cares what they have to say. Predictably, Obama doesn’t understand that. She appears to desperately need the attention. Check out the clip below where Michelle goes on NBC’s “Tonight Show” and mocks First Lady Melania Trump for bringing her a gift on Donald Trump’s inauguration day… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iEkMp6J0YIM#action=share Of course, Michelle gifted Laura Bush on Barack’s inauguration day. Did she forget about that? Just attacking Melania to be cool and edgy? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i9Vw7Mx21A0#action=share During an interview with ABC’s Robin Roberts, Obama admitted she was at first skeptical of Barack. The reason? Because white people liked him. Roberts: “You– you weren’t overly impressed in the beginning?” Michelle: “I– I wasn’t, you know? I have my suspicions when a bunch of white folks fawn on over a black man ’cause I sorta think, ‘Okay, he can talk straight so they think…

Confirmed: Pelosi Makes Clear That Dems Will Draft Articles of Impeachment Against Trump

Based on………what?

What you may or may not have imagined happening is happening. The Democrat-led House of Representatives is set to draft articles of impeachment against the duly-elected president of the United States, most likely because they disagree with the content of his tweets. There is no other reason; no other legitimate reason. Dems know that 45 did nothing wrong with Russia or Ukraine but thanks to the power of the mainstream media, they believe they have the people on their side. At the end of the day, impeachment has to go through the Senate. And who controls the Senate? Republicans. Therefore, will this impeachment attempt backfire come 2020? You’d have to imagine so. WATCH: https://twitter.com/QuickTake/status/1202591869235892225?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1202591869235892225&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-pelosi-says-the-house-will-draft-articles-of-impeachment-against-trump%2F Here’s the latest regarding impeachment support, via Washington Examiner: The Emerson poll released Thursday found support for impeachment has dropped from 48% to 43% since October, while opposition to impeachment has risen from 44% to 45%. Independents are key in the shift, with 49% opposing impeachment and only 34% supporting impeachment. In October, 48% of independents supported impeachment and 39% opposed. From Daily Wire: Kurt Volker, the former U.S. special envoy to Ukraine, and Tim Morrison, a top National Security Council official that was on President Donald Trump’s Ukraine phone call, both confirmed during their testimonies on Tuesday that there was no quid pro quo, no bribery, and no extortion. WATCH: [email protected] completely deconstructs the Dems’ case with her questioning. “Schiff got the facts wrong” is turning into an evergreen phrase. Morrison & Volker agree no quid pro quo, no bribery, no extortion. 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 https://twitter.com/TCPigott/status/1196955642868719617?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1196955642868719617&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fimpeachment-witnesses-confirm-no-quid-pro-quo-no-bribery-no-extortion A great day for Republicans, a great day for our Country! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1196958035127783427?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1196958035127783427&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fimpeachment-witnesses-confirm-no-quid-pro-quo-no-bribery-no-extortion Our Crazy, Do Nothing (where’s USMCA, infrastructure, lower drug pricing & much more?)
