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.

Putin Puffs Out His Chest: Crossing ‘Red Lines’ Will Prompt ‘Asymmetrical’ Response

Putin has been extremely antsy as of late.

Russia

It appears that US President Joe Biden is really getting under the skin of Russian President Dictator Vladimir Putin. These leaders of the world two preeminent superpowers have been trading barbs for weeks now, and on a range of subjects.  The latest focus of their fury has to do with the Kremlin’s continued aggression against Ukraine, where Russian military forces are lining just over the border, with “invasion stripes” painted on their vehicles to prevent friendly fire. This is a tacit admission that there will be fire, and Biden isn’t going to stand for it. The US first sent warships in the direction of the Black Sea in an attempt to deter Putin from poking the bear.  The Russian government responded by blocking the entrance to the area and warning that America’s maneuvers were “adversarial”. Biden responded by sanctioning Russia over a major hacking attack that took place months ago. Now, just ahead of what is believed to be an inevitable Russian invasion of Ukraine, Putin is once again puffing out his chest. Russian President Vladimir Putin, in his annual State of the Nation speech, warned on Wednesday against provoking his country, promising a swift retaliation against anyone who crossed “red lines.“ Moscow will respond “harshly,” “quickly” and “asymmetrically” to foreign provocations, Putin told an audience of Russia’s top officials and lawmakers, adding that he “hoped” no foreign actor would cross Russia’s “red lines,” according to a Reuters translation. Russia is also facing international condemnation for their treatment of journalist Alexei Navalny, who is believed to be at death’s door at a Russian prison hospital.  Joe Biden has said that Russia would “pay a price” if Navalny were to perish in custody of the government.

DOJ Opens Investigation into Minneapolis Police Department

The investigation will feature the department’s civil rights division.

On Tuesday, Derek Chauvin was found guilty on all charges in the death of George Floyd. Chauvin was seen on video kneeling on the neck of Floyd for nearly 9 minutes as the restrained man slowly suffocated, in a moment that has haunted our nation for a year. Now that Chauvin is off to prison, and a likely, lengthy appeals process, the Department of Justice is now hoping to find out exactly what went wrong in Minneapolis, and whether or not there is some systemic issue with the police department itself. Attorney General Merrick Garland announced Wednesday that the Justice Department will be conducting an investigation of law enforcement in Minneapolis following the death of George Floyd. The announcement comes one day after a Hennepin County jury found former police officer Derek Chauvin guilty of second degree murder for killing Floyd. “Yesterday’s verdict in the state criminal trial does not address potentially systemic policing issues in Minneapolis,” Garland said during a press conference. Garland said the probe will be a “fully comprehensive review” that will look into whether the Minneapolis Police Department has a “pattern or practice of unconstitutional or unlawful policing.” He specificed that this includes “using excessive force, including during protests,” as well as “discriminatory conduct and whether its treatment of those with behavioral health disabilities is unlawful.” The DOJ will utilize their civil rights division in the investigation, and the Attorney General said that the move could protect “good cops” from their not-so-pristine peers in the precinct. “I strongly believe that good officers do not want to work in systems that allow bad practices,” Garland said. “Good officers welcome accountability because accountability is an essential part of building trust with the community and public safety requires public trust.” Chauvin was moved to prison on Wednesday, and promptly…
