Our Nation's Laws Apply To Everyone - Part 2

By now, almost everyone has heard of the baker fined for refusing to bake a cake for a same sex wedding ceremony. Those on the left pontificate that the baker denied the couple's "civil rights". Those on the right pontificate that the 1st Amendment's "free exercise of religion" rights of the baker were violated by the court's ruling.

Which side one takes is up to each individual. However, the court decided against the baker. But, as time progresses and new news crops up, there seems to be a growing consistency issue at play.

In today's news there appears a story about both Comcast and Facebook denying ads from a gun dealer because those companies did not approve of gun ownership. Of course gun ownership is fully legal in this Country. Click Here for the story.

Strangely, Comcast indicated they would only run the commercials if the gun shop did not use the word “gun” and if they removed the phrase “family night.” The "family night" prohibition truly has me at a loss. But, I digress.

How do these two stories relate? Both the baker and the companies are in the business of "selling to the public". Whether one believes a business has the right to refuse service to anyone it chooses or not - and a business can't do that by law, does it not seem somewhat inconsistent that the baker is fined and it's OK for Comcast & Facebook essentially do the same thing? Both companies are refusing service to the public based on their specific "beliefs".

This second case is yet another in the long line of political correctness running amok. And, I am guessing that no action will be taken against either Facebook or Comcast. Their actions fit into the agenda being promoted by those who wish to divide and rule the American people.

Yes, I know that may sound a little "over the top". But, without laws being consistently applied you wind up with the "little guy" on the short end of the stick - which, in fact, tends to divide a people between "them" and "those in power". It's a creeping, ever escalating syndrome.

Be Wary, My Friend!
