You know, the devout Christian grandmother who doesn’t believe in gay marriage and is being sued by Washington state for “civil rights” violation.
What crime did she commit?
She refused to cater flowers to a gay couple’s wedding.
Oh my God, not that!
Attorney General Bob Ferguson has threatened to confiscate this 70-year-old grandmother’s home, business, and life savings because of an alleged “civil rights” violation.
You mean the US government won’t go after ISIS, but they’ll persecute an old lady?
That’s right….Really, Mr. Ferguson. Not everyone in the United States accepts gay marriage. Some gays don’t even believe in it. But trying to force an old lady to come around to your way of thinking won’t work. The tactics you employ are similar to those of a totalitarian regime, meaning “You either agree with them, or they’ll confiscate your property and throw you in jail.”
Totalitarian regimes like ISIS try to control people’s private and public lives. Hitler did this. Mao did this, and Stalin did this. The evil Roman emperor Diocletian also did this. When Christians didn’t obey his commands, he tortured them and put them to death.
What crime did Christians commit?
They refused to worship the Roman gods; this included Diocletian.
There is a silver lining, however.
After Christians were persecuted, the Romans felt sorry for them. Not long thereafter, the door swung in the opposite direction. Christianity overtook the Roman empire under Constantine.
Shame on Attorney General Ferguson for persecuting a little old lady!
I thought liberals were supposed to be tolerant and open-minded. Truly, Mr. Ferguson, you give liberals a bad name.
