Here’s a headline that if it was reported at the Drudge Report would result in tens of millions of eyes on the page and a hundred million clicks on links. This story would be the proof of the attempt of Progressives to destroy America as a Christian nation. The company in question, however, could stand on the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 2012 which was used in the Hobby Lobby decision citing their lack of religious belief is their belief and thereby they wish to surround themselves with like minded people who are qualified to do the job. The cries of outrage from Christian Conservatives would be so loud that American wouldn’t be able to hear the tweets about Kim Kardashian’s ass or Justin Bieber’s latest staged arrest created to keep him from becoming fully irrelevant in popular culture.

I make this point because the executive order signed by President Obama strengthens the job anti-discrimination laws on the books to include the deep dark secret of American hiring in regard to the LGBTQ community. Everyone cannot be as fortune as I to live in a place and work in a place where simply put nobody cares about your sexual orientation or gender identity; America is just beginning its journey in that direction with miles to go before being “orientation blind.” Conservative pundits took to their computers once again with their first world persecution stories shortly after the ceremony on 21 July 2014.

Of course, the right will reach back to the RFRA to cite their religious beliefs are being restricted by government. When you really examine this what this controversy really is bringing to light is the desire of conservatives to codify their bigotry. To the right straight is moral and gay is immoral; this is a religious belief not a known fact or established law. To be sure, there are those on the right who want their in public moralizing made the law of the land as a first step toward creating a Christian law government which in less than a decade would reduce America to a Taliban like third world country.

  1. Why would an arts and crafts store care what their female workers use for birth control?

    • From a legal standpoint I see employees who have to pay for medical expenses, any, male or female is an unnecessary burden. Viagra is covered by most employee medical plans and it can be used to violate the biblical prohibition on sex before marriage and adultery. Why does Hobby Lobby not state they won’t pay for it anymore?

  2. Sustenance? You meant substance I take it. It’s not anti-Christian it’s a Progressive view that freedom is more important than religion. Apples and oranges.

  3. But it is the Federal government’s role to assure that companies don’t discriminate against groups even if that discrimination is based on their religious beliefs. So it would be fine with you if a company said it would not hire Christians because of their beliefs? Now any company has a right to fire someone for violating company policy as long as that policy is spelled out clearly at hiring.

  4. I’m talking corporations here Neocon1 not places of worship which are a separate class for hiring and have different rules which are known. It is the constitutional role of government to protect the civil rights of American citizens in regard to work.

    • Sex has no place in the workplace anyway. On that I think we can agree. But to discriminate based on orientation that’s a violation of a worker’s civil rights.

    • Let’s see 200 years ago slavery was legal, women couldn’t vote and a couple not of the same skin color could not marry. I’m not a big fan of public displays of affection and I am not a fan of sex in public either but I do feel pride for how far we have come in American society in the last half century. Straight couples, the majority of them explore sexual play that is very similar to the kind of sex I am my wife have and the sex that a gay couple has. Be safe, respect each other and have fun!
