OUTRAGEOUSLY, BARACK OBAMA & FELLOW DEMOCRATS & FAR-LEFT LIBERALS HAVE REPEATEDLY ASSAULTED (FIGURATIVELY) THE RIGHTS OF CHRISTIAN PEOPLE TO FREELY EXERCISE THEIR RELIGIOUS FAITH & HAVE REPEATEDLY ASSAULTED THEIR RIGHT TO HAVE THEIR OWN RELIGIOUS RIGHTS. THEY HAVE REPEATEDLY ATTACKED CHRISTIANS FOR EXERCISING THEIR RELIGIONS RIGHTS HERE IN THE U.S.A. AND IN GERMANY, IT SEEMS AS IF THE GOVERNMENTAL SYSTEM IN GERMANY IS THE EXACT SAME WAY. AS THE GERMAN GOV’T HAS RIDICULOUSLY & OUTRAGEOUSLY CALLED ON FOR A CHRISTIAN COUPLE TO PAY A GAY MAN MONEY FOR REJECTING TO MAKE A ‘PRO-GAY’ CAKE.
(IN THE PICTURE DISPLAYED ABOVE, WE SEE THE ASHERS BAKERY MANAGER, DANIEL McARTHUR WITH HIS WIFE, AMY.)
The ‘ASHERS BAKING COMPANY’ (http://www.ashersbakingco.com/) POLITELY REFUSED TO MAKE A ‘PRO-GAY’ CAKE FOR A GAY MAN BECAUSE IT GOES AGAINST THEIR RELIGIOUS FAITH & BELIEFS.
(IN THE PICTURE ABOVE, THE IMAGES SHOW WHAT DEEPLY-DEVOUT CHRISTIANS TRULY BELIEVE. AND THEY SHOULD HAVE THE FREEDOM TO EXERCISE THAT BELIEF, AS LONG AS THEY EXERCISE IT PEACEFULLY.)
THE COURT OF APPEAL IN BELFAST, GERMANY UPHELD THEIR DECISION TO CONVICT THE BAKERY OWNERS OF ‘DISCRIMINATION AGAINST HOMOSEXUALS’. THE LOCAL GAY RIGHTS ACTIVIST, GARETH LEE, WAS REJECTED HIS ‘PRO-GAY’ CAKE SO INSTEAD OF FINDING ANOTHER BAKERY TO GET THE CAKE MADE AT, HE DECIDED TO THROW A HISSY FIT & PRESS CHARGES AGAINST A PRIVATELY-OWNED BUSINESS. YOU WOULD THINK A PRIVATELY-OWNED BUSINESS WOULD BE ALLOWED TO REJECT SERVICES TO ANYONE THAT THEY CHOOSE TO & YOU WOULD THINK THAT THE OWNERS RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE BUSINESS TO ANYONE THAT THEY WANT TO BUT APPARENTLY THE COURT OF APPEAL IN BELFAST DID NOT SEE THINGS FROM THAT PERSPECTIVE.
(BEGINNING OF EXCERPT)
HERE IS AN EXCERPT FROM ‘BREITBART’, WHICH DISCUSSES THE CONTROVERSIAL CASE:
The initial judgement ordered them to pay £500 in compensation to Mr. Lee.
The owners, Daniel and Amy MacArthur, said that they were happy to serve Mr. Lee, but felt unable to make a cake endorsing a message they did not agree with. They, therefore, argued that they had not discriminated against Mr. Lee, but had merely declined to support his cause.
Speaking on their behalf during the case, John Larkin QC, Attorney General for Northern Ireland, said if the County Court ruling against Ashers was right, the laws used against the bakery fall foul of Northern Ireland’s constitutional law.
Pointed out that Gareth Lee was able to ask another bakery to fulfil the order, and that the court did not have to force Ashers to do it, he said: “Although the case for the Plaintiff is put pleasantly and with every appearance of sweet reasonableness, what cannot be disguised is that the defendants are being compelled, on pain of civil liability, to burn a pinch of incense at the altar of a god they do not worship.
He added: “The constitutional law of Northern Ireland, supplemented by the ECHR, resists such a compulsion.”
The three judges hearing the appeal – Ireland’s lord chief justice, Sir Declan Morgan, and Lord Justices Weatherup and Weir – disagreed, however, ruling that creating a cake did not constitute support for a cause.
“The fact that a baker provides a cake for a particular team or portrays witches on a Halloween cake does not indicate any support for either,” the lord chief justice said.
Mr. Lee was supported in his case by the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland. Speaking after the ruling Chief Commissioner, Dr. Michael Wardlow told the press: “The message that goes out today is that people should be free to be able to go in and access services without having to run some sort of lottery to know whether or not my belief conflicts with theirs.
“There is a debate to be had with the faith communities to find out how we negotiate this minefield and we’re up for that, and we’ve already begun that process some years ago.”
Daniel McArthur also addressed the press following the hearing, speaking of his family’s deep disappointment at losing their high-profile court action.
“We’re extremely disappointed with today’s ruling,” he said. “If equality law means people can be punished for politely refusing to support other people’s causes, then equality law needs to change.”
“This ruling undermines democratic freedom. It undermines religious freedom. It undermines free speech.”
“We had served Mr. Lee before and would be happy to serve him again. The judges accepted that we did not know Mr. Lee was gay and that he was not the reason we declined the order. We have always said it was never about the customer, it was about the message. The court accepted that. But now we are being told we have to promote the message even though it’s against our conscience.”
Mr. MacArthur said he would be taking advice from lawyers on how to proceed, but warned other Christian business owners to “to take advice about whether they can refuse orders that conflict with their consciences, or whether they have to be coerced as well into promoting other people’s views”.
Speaking passionately, he added: “It’s been a trying time. But we’re thankful to God for His faithfulness to us through everything. He is still on the throne, He is the ruler of heaven and of earth, and He is our God, and we worship and we honour Him.” ”

WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS CONTROVERSIAL CASE? IT’S AMAZING HOW THE GERMAN GOVERNMENT WILL ALLOW THOUSANDS ON THOUSANDS ON THOUSANDS ON THOUSANDS OF RADICAL ISLAMIC PEOPLE TO INVADE THEIR COUNTRY & COMMIT MURDERS, CRIMES, TERRORIST ATTACKS, AND SEXUAL ASSAULTS AND YET THE LIBERALS STILL ARE AGAINST ‘ISLAMAPHOBIA’ BUT WHEN A CHRISTIAN COUPLE POLITELY & PEACEFULLY REJECTS THE CUSTOMER BECAUSE THEY DON’T WANT TO WRITE A MESSAGE THAT THEY DON’T AGREE WITH, LIBERALS THEN LOSE THEIR MINDS AND GET EXTREMELY ANGRY ABOUT IT LIKE CHILDISH BRATS.
IT’S A BUSINESS THAT IS PRIVATELY OWNED BY TWO CHRISTIAN PEOPLE! THEY SHOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE SERVICE TO ANYONE THEY WANT TO! I CAN’T BELIEVE THE GERMAN GOV’T HAS INTERJECTED ON THEIR RELIGIOUS FREEDOMS & RELIGIOUS RIGHTS & BUSINESS RIGHTS. OH, AND SPEAKING OF THE GERMANT GOV’T, SCREW ANGELA MERKEL!
