the Magnolia State, Governor Phil Bryant signed HB 1523, otherwise known as
“Protecting Freedom of Conscience from Government Discrimination Act”.
Bryant (just reelected last November) demonstrated that there is still courage
and integrity in the world.
Georgia Governor Nathan Deal caved to Big Business, Bryant defiantly refused to
meet with left-wing agitators and the craven Chamber of Compromise, er
simply signed off on one of the most sweeping pro-religious liberty bills
the Georgia bill (still under veto) only protected pastors from officiating
same-sex weddings, the Mississippi law ensures that every individual, whether
in church or state capacity, can refuse to participate in certain
activities (bake a cake for a gay wedding, officiate a ceremony, etc) if those
actions violate the proprietor’s individual freedom of religion.
of course … the vain-scream media pouted and jeered, playing the “hate” card as
hard as they could.
Gov. Bryant Stands Up to
Liberal Bullying, Signs Mississippi Religious Freedom Bill
indeed. Liberals are bullies.
seek to isolate, marginalize, shame, and then silence their opposition.
latest target? Christians and conservative communities. How about anyone who
holds an opinion contrary to the liberal agenda, and refuses to give it up?
in many entrepreneurial firms have faced enough discrimination from their
government, whether state or federal, simply for refusing to participate in
certain activities. The plight of the Oregon bakers (hit with a $135,0000 fine
for refusing to bake a gay wedding cake) is the most harrowing example of
political correctness turned into tyranny.
left unchecked, this LGBT tyranny will only get worse.
Mississippi statute ensures that the liberty will shine forth for all. Where
Arizona, Indiana, and Arkansas had failed, Mississippi’s governor succeeded.
in mind that Big Business and the progressive LGBT Left protested, hollered,
and threw up a huge PC smokescreen to make the measure appear like a codified
form of bigotry. Nothing of the sort, and every American–not just
Christians–should breathe a freeing sigh of relief.
there’s more to celebrate …
North Carolina Governor
love North Carolina!
Tar Heel State passed a similar law to Mississippi’s last year, protecting the
individual liberties of private parties and civil servants. Before the
legislation, North Carolina judges were resigning instead of officiate
their jobs are protected, and their conscience remains free to believe and
practice the truth about marriage, regardless of the Supreme Court’s arbitrary
dictates. The only down-side to that victory? Conservative Republican Governor
Pat McCrory vetoed the bill, fearing the repercussions.
state legislature still holds a Republican supermajority, however, and
they overrode McCrory’s veto, a reminder that our rights override the
disregard of the current Supreme Court to our Constitution.
his credit, McCrory has signed off on another bill, HB 2, requiring every
individual to use the public restroom according to his or her biological
sex, designated on their birth certificate.
has happened to this world, that states must enact laws affirming the blessed simplicity
and distinction of male and female?
agenda is just plain destructive. To be born male or female is not something to
be ashamed of. Someone who feels that he or she should be a he instead of a
she–that person needs help, not enabling.
California, the state legislature forced a measure allowing transgendered youth
to go into their public school’s bathroom according to the gender which they
identify with, rather than in conformity with their biology. This is wrong.
This is abusive. And this will lend itself to abuse.
Carolina is two steps ahead of this cultural Marxist insanity. Since
when did the battle of sexes become a battle over redefining these core values?
McCrory did not cave to Big Business and the Progressive LGBT Left on this one.
Whether out of principle (he recognizes male and female as static realities) or
out of politics (the legislature would have overridden his veto), the governor
is defending the immutable truths of gender.
state’s responses to the Big Business Bullies have been epic!
PayPal was prepared to open an office in Charlotte, North Carolina. Now,
because men cannot go into women’s bathrooms, they are declining the bid. The
Lieutenant GovernorDan Forest issued the following:
our action in keeping men out of women’s bathrooms and showers protected the
life of just one child or one woman from being molested or assaulted then it
was worth it.”
is also warning other industry leaders that North Carolina is not backing down.
“If a corporation wanting to do business in North Carolina does not see the
worth of our children in the same light then I wish them well as they do
business somewhere else.”
would have added: “Good luck finding a better business climate!”
