A state Supreme Court’s ruling was the last thing Christians were expecting
Religious freedom is under attack in America.
Christians are under constant assault from militant leftists who want to eradicate Christianity.
Now, a state Supreme Court’s ruling was the last thing Christians were expecting.
A Pew Research poll from 2015 showed that 40% of millennials (18-34) believe limiting free speech is a good thing if the speech is deemed “harmful.”
That is a chilling stat, and it coincides with the rise of atheism and decline of religiosity in the country.
People without faith believe they can perfect humanity through government force.
All they have to do is quash free speech and toss a few million people in a gulag.
But despite the relentless attacks on the First Amendment, two Christians just won a deeply important court case in support of free speech and religious expression.
Fox News reports;
A pair of Christian artists can’t be forced by the city government of Phoenix to make invitations for same-sex marriages, the Arizona Supreme Court ruled Monday.
Joanna Duka and Breanna Koski, the owners of Brush & Nib Studio, were accused of violating a local anti-discrimination ordinance. Monday’s 4-3 decision reversed a lower-court ruling that favored the city.
An individual has autonomy over his or her speech and thus may not be forced to speak a message he or she does not wish to say,” the court’s majority decision read.
Duka, a calligrapher, and Koski, a painter, were threatened with six months jail time and $2,500 in fines for every day they were in violation of the ordinance. They are now celebrating their judicial victory as “a huge win for religious freedom and freedom of speech.”
Leftists have resorted to last-ditch speech control efforts.
It’s bad enough they want to limit what others can say.
Now they’re actively trying to force people to say things in which they don’t believe.
Each day, the Left pushes us closer to an Orwellian nightmare where two plus two equals whatever the Left says it does.
However, these Christian artists in Arizona showed there’s power in fighting back against the lunacy of the Left.
This is why having honest judges who are constitutionalists is so important.
A few activist judges can put terrible and scary laws into effect.
