Bryan Fischer: Ruling on same-sex marriage cake proves ‘gay Gestapo’ enslaves Christians

Published

on

Anti-LGBT activist Bryan Fischer reached for a characteristically over-the-top analogy to complain about a civil rights ruling in Colorado.

The state’s Civil Rights Commission ruled last week that Jack Phillips, a Christian bakery owner, had violated Colorado’s anti-discrimination statutes by refusing to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple legally married in another state.

The couple sued, and the seven-member commission upheld an administrative judge’s finding from December that Phillips had violated their civil rights.

That, argued Fischer, essentially made Phillips a slave to “the gay Gestapo.”

“When a man is forced, under threat of being sent to jail, to do work that he would not do unless he was compelled to do it, he is no longer a free man but a slave,” Fischer said.

The United States, of course, banned the legal ownership of one human being by another with the 13th Amendment to the Constitution.

“Apparently someone forgot to tell the Stormtroopers in the homosexual movement about the civil war, the civil rights movement, and freedom of both will and conscience,” said Fischer, director of Issues Analysis for the fundamentalist American Family Association.

He complained that the Civil Rights Commission had violated the baker’s First Amendment right to freedom of religion by forcing him to recognize a state law that he doesn’t like.

“Not only is Phillips being reduced to slavery, he is now the victim of tyranny as well since he is being compelled by the government to violate his own conscience,” Fischer complained.

“So meet our new overlords, the new owners of the American plantation, the gay mafia,” he added. “All hail Big Gay, our new slave masters.”

In a discursive news conference dominated by attacks on his domestic rivals, Trump declared himself to be the toughest president ever on China, a country he is increasingly positioning as his nemesis ahead of November elections.

Trump announced that he had issued an executive order on Hong Kong as he predicted decline for the restless city, on which Beijing recently imposed a tough new security law.

Trump’s former White House doctor Ronny Jackson wins GOP runoff for Congress in Texas

Published

Ronny Jackson, the former White House physician and President Donald Trump's onetime nominee for secretary of veterans affairs, has won his bid for the Republican nomination for a solidly red congressional seat in the Texas Panhandle.

With 100% of polling locations reporting, though some mail-in ballots will still need to be counted, Jackson held a lead of 11 percentage points over Josh Winegarner, a veteran agriculture expert and lobbyist. Jackson and Winegarner were competing for a seat being vacated by U.S. Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Clarendon, who is retiring and held the seat since 1995.
