Rights? Rrriiights? You Christians will be lucky if we let you keep doing your God-bothering Bible humping in your homes and churches.  Welcome to end stage America, where the totalitarianism is open and Christianity is most assuredly not preferred.

On Thursday, the New Mexico Supreme Court ruled that religious wedding photographers could be forced to photograph same-sex weddings. “When Elane Photography refused to photograph a same-sex commitment ceremony, it violated the [New Mexico Human Rights Act, or NMHRA] in the same way as if it had refused to photograph a wedding between people of different races,” the court ruled unanimously…..

….Justice Richard Bosson wrote, in concurrence, that the Huguenins are “compelled by law to compromise the very religious beliefs that inspire their lives.” He concluded, “The Huguenins are free to think, to say, to believe, as they wish; they may pray to the God of their choice and follow those commandments in their personal lives wherever they lead. The Constitution protects the Huguenins in that respect and much more. But there is a price, one that we all have to pay somewhere in our civic life.” That “compromise,” he wrote, “is part of the glue that holds us together as a nation, the tolerance that lubricates the varied moving parts of us as a people. That sense of respect we owe others, whether or not we believe as they do, illuminates this country, setting it apart from the discord that afflicts much of the rest of the world. In short, I would say to the Huguenins, with the utmost respect: it is the price of citizenship.”

Well, thank goodness he says it with the highest respect. I’d hate to see what he does when being disrespectful!

When the government can force citizens to say or do things that are in diametric opposition to their consciences, what else is this nation but a police state?

This is disheartening. What’s next? Forcing me to pay for other people’s abortifacients?

Good one, Bill. Appreciate the tongue-in-cheek.

It is indeed disheartening. In some form or fashion one can observe this same phenomenon all over the western world and in certain non-western countries. Interestingly, one does not see it in Russia – in fact, quite the opposite. One does not see it in muslim countries, either, although certainly other things are imposed.

As one who remembers the days, I can remember when, if a person criticized actions of the government in the 60s and 70s, one was asked if they would “prefer to live in Russia.”

Well, probably not, but one does admire some of the moral and sociopolitical positions taken there of late.
