ATHEIST COMEDIAN BILL MAHER SPOKE
UP ON HIS PROGRAM ABOUT RADICAL ISLAM. HE NOTED THAT ISLAM HAS
NOT PROTECTED MANY OF THE VALUES LIBERALS-AND ALL
AMERICANS–HOLD DEAR, LIKE FREEDOM OF SPEECH
AND FREEDOM OF RELIGION. IN RESPONSE, A STUDENT
GROUP AT THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA AT BERKELEY
ORGANIZED A PETITION TO DIS-INVITE HIM FROM
SPEAKING AT WINTER GRADUATION BECAUSE
OF “HATE SPEECH.” THIS PHENOMENON IS
BECOMING INCREASINGLY COMMON IN AMERICA-AND
ON COLLEGE CAMPUSES. IF YOUR SPEECH DOES NOT
FALL WITHIN CERTAIN APPROVED BOUNDARIES, YOU
WILL BE ACCUSED OF HATE SPEECH AND SOME WILL
ATTEMPT TO SILENCE YOU. ON TODAY’S PROGRAM, WE’LL
LOOK AT THIS PROBLEM, AND YOU’LL MEET A COUPLE
WHO WERE PUT OUT OF BUSINESS BY THE GOVERNMENT
FOR OBEYING THEIR CHRISTIAN CONSCIENCE. WE’LL ALSO SHARE AN
IMPORTANT RESOURCE THAT WILL HELP YOU
NAVIGATE THIS ISSUE. BUT AS WE BEGIN, MY
FATHER, THE LATE DR. D. JAMES KENNEDY, WHO SAW
ALL OF THIS COMING, HELPS US UNCOVER WHAT
DRIVES THIS ANTI-FREEDOM AGENDA IN PART TWO
OF HIS MESSAGE, “THE NEW TOLERANCE.” TOLERANCE IS THE LAST
VIRTUE OF A DEPRAVED SOCIETY. WHEN YOU HAVE AN IMMORAL
SOCIETY WHO HAS BLATANTLY, PROUDLY,
VIOLATED ALL OF THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD, THERE
IS ONE LAST VIRTUE THEY INSIST UPON — TOLERANCE
FOR THEIR IMMORALITY. AND THEY WILL NOT HAVE YOU
CONDEMNING WHAT THEY HAVE DONE AS BEING WRONG, AND
THEY HAVE CREATED A WHOLE WORLD CONSTRUCT IN
WHICH IT IS NOT, AND IN WHICH THEY ARE NO
LONGER THE CRIMINAL OR THE VILLAIN OR THE EVIL
PERSON, BUT YOU ARE. AND SO THEY
CALL EVIL GOOD, AND GOOD EVIL
AND BELIEVE ME, THAT’S JUST THE BEGINNING. YOU SEE, IF IT’S TRUE WHAT
THEY SAY THAT THERE ARE NO JUDGMENTS BY WHICH WE CAN
CONDEMN ANY STANDARD OF RIGHT AND WRONG OR GOOD
AND EVIL AS BETTER OR WORSE, AND IF IT’S TRUE
THAT THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS IS OUR FEELINGS,
AND IF IT IS ALSO TRUE, AS THEY SAY, THAT YOU
CANNOT SEPARATE WHAT A PERSON DOES FROM
WHAT THE PERSON IS, AND SINCE CHRISTIANS
FOR 2,000 YEARS HAVE BELIEVED
THAT WE ARE TO LOVE THE SINNER, BUT HATE THE
SIN, THEY SAY, “OH, NO YOU DON’T.” AND SINCE POLLS HAVE
REPEATEDLY SHOWN THAT HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS IN THIS
COUNTRY BELIEVE THAT YOU CANNOT CRITICIZE ANYTHING
THAT ANYONE BELIEVES WITHOUT CRITICIZING AND
FINDING FAULT WITH THAT PERSON. THEREFORE, IF YOU HAVE A
DISCUSSION OF ATHEISM WITH AN ATHEIST, YOU ARE
FINDING FAULT WITH THAT MAN AND CRITICIZING
HIS VIEWS. YOU CAN’T
SEPARATE THE TWO. IF YOU FIND FAULT WITH
A THIEF AND YOU WOULD CRITICIZE HIS STEALING,
THOUGH AS A CHRISTIAN WE WOULD WANT TO LOVE HIM,
THEN YOU ARE FINDING FAULT WITH HIM, NOT
MERELY WHAT HE DOES. THE SAME THING IS
TRUE OF A HOMOSEXUAL. YOU CANNOT HAVE A RATIONAL
DISCUSSION OF THE RIGHTNESS OR WRONGNESS
OF HOMOSEXUALITY, BECAUSE IF YOU FIND
ANY FAULT WITH IT, YOU ARE FINDING FAULT WITH
THAT PERSON WHO WILL TELL YOU THAT “WHAT I
DO IS WHAT I AM, ” AND YOU CANNOT DIVIDE
BETWEEN THE TWO. AND THE OVERWHELMING
MAJORITY OF HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS IN AMERICA
BELIEVE THAT. THEY BELIEVE IT
PASSIONATELY. THEY HAVE BEEN THOROUGHLY
INDOCTRINATED WITH THAT IDEA. DOES IT MATTER? WE’RE GOING DOWN THE HILL. YES, IT MATTERS,
BECAUSE YOU SEE, IN CRITICIZING
THAT PERSON, WHEN YOU’RE CRITICIZING
WHAT HE BELIEVES OR WHAT HE DOES, YOU ARE
HURTING HIS FEELINGS, YOU ARE DEMONSTRATING
HATEFULNESS TO HIM, AND THAT IS A
“HATE CRIME.” AND THAT CAN END YOU
UP IN COURT OR JAIL. THERE IS LEGISLATION
COMING BEFORE THE FEDERAL CONGRESS OF THIS NATION
THIS TERM TO HAVE FEDERAL HATE CRIMES. FOR THE FIRST
TIME IN HISTORY, YOU CAN BE JUDGED FOR WHAT
IS INSIDE YOUR HEAD OR INSIDE YOUR HEART. AND IF YOU ARE
GUILTY OF “HATRED,” THEN YOU CAN GO TO JAIL. AND WHO KNOWS WHAT
LIES BEYOND THAT STEP. BUT YOU KNOW, MY FRIENDS,
WHEN I TALKED TO SOMEBODY WHO SURVIVED THE HOLOCAUST
WHO WAS HERE AT THE FIRST SERVICE, AND HE SAID,
“YOU ARE EXACTLY RIGHT. THAT IS WHAT HAPPENED
WITH THE JEWS. THEY FIRST RIDICULED THEM. THEY LAUGHED AT THEM. AND THEN THEY BEGAN
TO CONDEMN THEM. AND THEN THEY BEGAN TO
SILENCE THEM AND CENSURE THEM, AND CENSORSHIP
CAME INTO PLACE. AND THEN THEY BEGAN
TO PERSECUTE THEM. AND THEN THEY BEGAN
TO IMPRISON THEM. AND THEN THEY
BEGAN TO KILL THEM, ALL IN THE NAME
OF TOLERANCE. YOU SEE, THE ONE THING,
SAID ONE WRITER ON OUR SCHOOLS,
DR. FREDERICK W. HILL, A SCHOOL
ADMINISTRATOR SAID, “IT IS THE MISSION OF THE
PUBLIC SCHOOLS NOT TO TOLERATE INTOLERANCE.” NOW, MY FRIENDS,
CHRISTIANITY IS THE MOST LOVING RELIGION
IN THE WORLD. GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD,
HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON. JESUS CHRIST
GAVE HIS LIFE. GOD GIVES TO US
ETERNAL LIFE. GOD FORGIVES US AND HE
URGES US TO LOVE OTHERS, TO LOVE OUR FRIENDS,
TO LOVE OUR ENEMIES, TO LOVE EVEN
THOSE WHO KILL US. BUT CHRISTIANITY IS
AN ABSOLUTE RELIGION. BY THE WAY, ALL OF THESE
STRICTURES DO NOT APPLY TO OTHER RELIGIONS-ONLY
TO CHRISTIANITY, BECAUSE THAT IS THE
ONLY ABSOLUTE RELIGION. YOU CAN BELONG TO THREE OR
FOUR OF THE OTHER OF THE WORLD’S RELIGIONS
AT THE SAME TIME. BUT GOD IS A JEALOUS GOD
AND HE WILL NOT HAVE ANY OTHER GODS BEFORE HIM, AND
ALL OF THE GODS OF THE HEATHEN HE SAYS ARE
BUT IDOLS –IDOLS! BUT GOD SAYS,
“I AM JEHOVAH. THERE IS NONE LIKE ME.” CHRIST SAYS, “I AM
THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE: NO MAN
COMETH UNTO THE FATHER, BUT BY ME” (JOHN 14:6). THAT STATEMENT ALONE COULD
ONE DAY, IN AMERICA, COULD HAVE LANDED HIM
IN JAIL BECAUSE IT IS ABSOLUTIST. HOW MANY PEOPLE TODAY YOU
SEE WANT TO SAY, “WELL, ALL RELIGIONS ARE
BASICALLY THE SAME.” THERE’S A THEOLOGICAL
TERM FOR THAT. IT’S CALLED “HOGWASH.” THAT’S A DIRECT
TRANSLATION FROM THE GREEK. AND IT ONLY REVEALS THE
IGNORANCE OF THE PERSON WHO MAKES THAT STATEMENT. GAUTAMA BUDDHA
DIED FOR NO ONE. LAO-TZE DIED FOR NO ONE. CONFUCIUS DIED FOR NO ONE. MOHAMMED DIED FOR NO ONE. ONLY CHRIST DIED FOR
THE SINS OF THE WORLD. ONLY CHRIST ROSE
AGAIN FROM THE DEAD. ONLY CHRIST OFFERS ETERNAL
LIFE FREELY TO THOSE WHO WILL TRUST IN HIM. CHRISTIANITY IS
DIAMETRICALLY OPPOSITE FROM ALL OF THE OTHER
WORLD’S RELIGIONS IN THOSE THINGS THAT REALLY MATTER. BUT BECAUSE IT IS ABSOLUTE
AND NOT RELATIVE, IT IS CHRISTIANITY AGAINST
WHICH ALL OF THIS THAT I HAVE MENTIONED IS AIMED. AND IT IS LIKE BEING
CORRALLED LIKE SHEEP TO THE SLAUGHTER. MOST OF THE SHEEP DON’T
EVEN KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING. WAKE UP! YOU DID, DIDN’T YOU? GOOD. DEAR FRIENDS, FOR FORTY
YEARS I HAVE URGED THIS CONGREGATION TO BE
FAITHFUL TO THE GREAT COMMISSION OF SHARING THE
GOSPEL WITH A NEEDY WORLD, A NEEDY NATION. MANY OF YOU HAVE BEEN
INDESCRIBABLY FAITHFUL IN DOING THAT YEAR AFTER
YEAR, DECADE AFTER DECADE. BUT EVEN MORE
OF YOU NO WAY. YOU HAVEN’T LED ANYBODY
TO CHRIST LAST YEAR. YOU DIDN’T LEAD ANYBODY
TO CHRIST THE YEAR BEFORE THAT. YOU DIDN’T LEAD ANYBODY
TO CHRIST LAST DECADE. YOU DIDN’T LEAD ANYBODY TO
CHRIST IN THE LAST FORTY YEARS. SOME OF YOU HAVEN’T LEAD
ANYBODY TO CHRIST IN THE LAST SEVENTY YEARS. YOU ARE GOING TO FIND OUT
WHAT IS AT THE END OF THE ROAD OF DISOBEDIENCE TO
THE GREAT COMMISSION. IT’S TIME THAT WE STOOD
UP FOR JESUS CHRIST AND SHOWED SOME BACKBONE WHILE
WE STILL HAVE A PLACE TO STAND. OH, GOD THE
NEED IS SO GREAT, HELP US, WE PRAY,
TO HAVE THE COURAGE THAT CHRIST
ALONE CAN GIVE US AND THAT THE TRUTH OF CHRIST
MAY INUNDATE THIS NATION AS NEVER BEFORE. I PRAY THIS IN HIS
MOST HOLY NAME. AMEN. AS MY FATHER SHARED WITH
US IN HIS MESSAGE TODAY, ALL RELIGIONS
ARE NOT THE SAME. THOSE WHO CALL FOR A
SECULAR NATION CLAIM THAT CHRISTIANITY IS
INTOLERANT OF OTHERS. BUT THEY HAVE IT
EXACTLY BACKWARDS. IT’S THE CHRISTIAN FAITH
THAT HAS OFFERED FREEDOM OF CONSCIENCE. THE MORE SECULAR
A NATION IS, THE MORE IT WILL COMPEL
PEOPLE THROUGH SPEECH CODES AND RESTRICTIONS
ON FREEDOM. JUST LOOK AT THE ATHEISTIC
COMMUNIST NATIONS OF THE 20TH CENTURY, FOR EXAMPLE. AND HERE IN AMERICA,
FREEDOM IS ON THE DECLINE AS WELL. OUR OWN DR. JERRY NEWCOMBE
AND JOHN RABE HAVE MORE. A CHRISTIAN BAKER IN
OREGON IS BEING FORCED OUT OF BUSINESS BY THE
GOVERNMENT BECAUSE OF THEIR STAND ON SO-CALLED
HOMOSEXUAL MARRIAGE. TWO CHRISTIAN BROTHERS
LOST THEIR JOBS AS TV HOSTS FOR TAKING A
CHRISTIAN STAND ON MARRIAGE AND ABORTION. AN OUTSPOKEN MINISTER IS
SUED IN FEDERAL COURT BY A LEFT-WING GROUP FOR
“CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY” FOR SPEAKING OUT
ON HOMOSEXUALITY. AND THE LIST OF SUCH
CASES IS GROWING. JOHN RABE JOINS ME
TO TALK ABOUT THEM. JOHN, WHAT IS HAPPENING
HERE IN A NATION FOUNDED FOR RELIGIOUS FREEDOM? WE’RE LOSING OURS! AND IT’S NOT ONLY THE
FREEDOM OF RELIGION ALTHOUGH IT
CERTAINLY IS THAT, IT’S ALSO JUST THE BASIC
FREEDOM OF SPEECH– BASIC FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION. THE FACT IS THAT WE HAVE
A FIRST AMENDMENT THAT’S DESIGNED TO PROTECT
US FROM GOVERNMENT INTERFERENCE. WE’RE USED TO SEEING
-IN FOREIGN COUNTRIES ESPECIALLY WHERE ISLAM HAS
GROWN IN RECENT YEARS- WE’RE USED TO SEEING
SPEECH THAT IS NOT APPROVED BEING
CLAMPED DOWN ON; SOMETIMES EVEN
VIOLENTLY SO. WELL, THANKFULLY IN
AMERICA IT HASN’T GOTTEN VIOLENT, BUT WHAT WE DO
SEE IS THAT IF YOU HOLD A NON-APPROVED VIEWPOINT,
WHICH IS NOW A VERY LIBERAL, VERY PARTICULAR
VIEWPOINT– YOU HOLD A NON-APPROVED VIEWPOINT,
THE GOVERNMENT MAY COME IN AND PUT THE CLAMPS
DOWN ON YOU. THAT SHOULD BE TERRIFYING
IN A NATION THAT HAS A FIRST AMENDMENT. AND IN MOST OF THESE CASES
THE CHRISTIAN VICTIM WAS JUST MINDING THEIR
OWN BUSINESS, BUT WHEN ASKED TO
CELEBRATE SOMETHING THAT THEY THOUGHT WAS
WRONG THEY SAID, “MY CONSCIENCE WON’T
ALLOW ME DO THAT.” GROUND ZERO FOR THIS SORT
OF THING HAS REALLY BEEN IN THE WEDDING INDUSTRY. AND THERE HAVE BEEN A
NUMBER OF BUSINESSES, AS YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT,
WHO ARE JUST DOING THEIR WORK AND DECIDE WE DON’T
WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN A HOMOSEXUAL SO-CALLED
MARRIAGE AND SEVERAL OF THEM ARE FINDING
THEMSELVES ON THE FIRING LINES AS A RESULT. WELL, ONE CHRISTIAN COUPLE
DISCOVERED THE HARD WAY THAT HAVING BIBLICAL
CONVICTIONS CAN COST YOU DEARLY. RIGHT HERE IN AMERICA
WHERE WE SUPPOSEDLY HAVE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO
FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION, FREEDOM OF RELIGION, AND
FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION. MEET MELISSA AND AARON
KLEIN OF OREGON. I ACTUALLY GOT STARTED
IN THIS BUSINESS, MY SON WAS TURNING ONE AND
I WANTED TO MAKE HIS FIRST BIRTHDAY CAKE. THAT WAS MY FIRST TIME
EVER MAKING A CAKE AND AFTER I MADE IT, IT WAS
I JUST FELL IN LOVE LIKE WITH BEING ABLE TO USE THE
ARTISTIC ABILITY THAT I FEEL THAT GOD GAVE ME
TO LIKE PUT INTO CAKE. MELISSA KLEIN OF
GRESHAM, OREGON, ALONG WITH HER
HUSBAND AARON, CREATED A THRIVING
BUSINESS CALLED “SWEET CAKES BY MELISSA.” SHE POURED A GREAT DEAL OF
ENERGY INTO HER SPECIAL CAKES FOR THAT
SPECIAL DAY. I SPECIALIZE IN WEDDING
CAKES AND CUSTOM DESIGNED CAKES. WE OWNED A BAKERY,
ACTUALLY IT WAS MORE OF A CUSTOM DESIGN CAKE SHOP. EVERYTHING WAS
A MADE TO ORDER. I MEAN SPECIFICALLY
DESIGNED AS THE CUSTOMER WANTED. WE REALLY LIKE TO MAKE
IT VERY SPECIFIC TO EACH INDIVIDUAL COUPLE. WE DID QUITE A FEW
WEDDINGS I’D PROBABLY SAY ABOUT 150-160 WEDDINGS
A YEAR, IT WAS GRESHAM, OREGON-BASED, WE DELIVERED
EVERYWHERE FROM ASH AND ALL THE WAY UP
PAST SEATTLE. WE WANTED IT IN EVERYTHING
THAT WE DID IN OUR BUSINESS WE WANTED TO USE,
I WANTED TO USE MY YOU KNOW ARTISTIC ABILITY
TO GLORIFY THE LORD. BUT IN EARLY 2013, THEIR
SWEET SUCCESS TURNED SOUR WHEN THEIR CONSCIENCE DID
NOT ALLOW THEM TO CREATE A “WEDDING CAKE” TO
CELEBRATE THE UNION OF TWO LESBIANS. JANUARY 2013 WE HAD A
GIRL AND HER MOM COME IN REQUESTING US TO DO
HER WEDDING CAKE, RETURN CUSTOMER, WHEN I
LEARNED WHAT THE CAKE WAS FOR I COULDN’T IN GOOD
CONSCIENCE TAKE PART IN IT, IT WAS SOMETHING THAT
FLEW RIGHT IN THE FACE OF WHAT THE BIBLE
DEFINED AS MARRIAGE. THE STATE OF OREGON HAS
BROUGHT CLAIMS FOR DAMAGES ON BEHALF OF THE TWO GIRLS
WHO CAME INTO AARON AND MELISSA’S SHOP THEY’VE
BROUGHT CLAIMS FOR DAMAGES IN EXCESS OF $150,000
SIMPLY BECAUSE AARON AND MELISSA WOULD NOT VIOLATE
THEIR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS AND CELEBRATE SOMETHING
THAT THEY BELIEVED WAS WRONG. BECAUSE OF THE BOYCOTTING
THE DEMONSTRATIONS THAT HAPPENED EVERYTHING THAT’S
GONE ON WE’VE LOST OUR STOREFRONT WE’VE LOST WHAT
WAS OUR MAIN SOURCE OF INCOME FOR OUR FAMILY. WE’VE BEEN ACCUSED OF OR
CALLED A HATER, A BIGOT, EVERY NAME THAT YOU CAN
POSSIBLY THINK OF IN THE BOOK, YOU KNOW AT FIRST
YOU KNOW I WON’T LIE IT LIKE IT REALLY HURT THEN
IT REALLY HIT ME HARD BECAUSE IT WAS LIKE
HOW AM I A HATER? YOU KNOW LIKE JUST BECAUSE
I DON’T WANT TO DO SOMETHING, DO I NOT HAVE
RIGHTS TO SAY WHAT I WANT TO DO AND WHAT I DON’T
WANT TO DO I SHOULDN’T HAVE TO BE FORCED TO DO
SOMETHING THAT VIOLATES MY RELIGIOUS BELIEFS
ESPECIALLY. THIS IS A CASE ABOUT
WHETHER THE STATE CAN FORCE YOU TO
COMMUNICATE A MESSAGE, PARTICIPATE IN AN EVENT
WHICH VIOLATES YOUR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS, THE
STATE OF OREGON HAS BROUGHT THE FULL FORCE
OF THE LAW DOWN ON THESE PEOPLE FOR SIMPLY DECIDING
TO STAND BY THEIR RELIGIOUS BELIEF. YOU ADD THE DAMAGES ON TOP
OF THAT THAT THE STATE COULD IMPOSE AND I
COULD LOSE MY HOUSE, I COULD FILE BANKRUPTCY
AND WE’RE NOT TALKING ABOUT TWO PEOPLE THAT
OWNED A MULTIMILLION DOLLAR BUSINESS WE’RE
TALKING ABOUT A HUSBAND AND WIFE THAT OWNED A
SMALL SHOP THAT SUPPORTED THEIR FIVE KIDS. A PERSON SHOULD BE ALLOWED
UNDER THE CONSTITUTION TO WORK IN THE MARKETPLACE
AND MAKE A LIVING WITHOUT FEAR OF HAVING TO GO
AGAINST WHAT THEY BELIEVE IN THEIR HEART OF
HEARTS TO BE TRUE. THE HARDEST THING HAS
BEEN WATCHING MY WIFE GO THROUGH THIS. I HAD SO MANY REGULAR
CUSTOMERS THAT CAME IN THAT, THAT I BUILT LIKE
RELATIONSHIPS WITH AND I MISS THAT INTERACTION
WITH THEM. SHE LOVED DOING CAKE SHE
LOVED BEING A PART OF PEOPLE’S DAY AND TO HAVE
THAT STRIPPED AWAY TO THE LEVEL IT HAS BEEN HAS
JUST BEEN DEVASTATING. JOHN, THAT IS SO TRAGIC. HERE IS THIS FAMILY WHO IS
GOING TO LOSE EVERYTHING THEY WORKED SO HARD FOR
AND DONE SO WELL AT BECAUSE THEY WON’T
VIOLATE THEIR CONSCIENCE; IN AMERICA! DOESN’T IT SEEM
IMPOSSIBLE, JERRY, THAT THIS WOULD BE
HAPPENING IN THE UNITED STATES IN A NATION WITH
OUR CONSTITUTION AND A NATION WITH OUR
BILL OF RIGHTS. THIS ISN’T EUROPE. THIS ISN’T EVEN CANADA
WHERE THESE THINGS ARE HAPPENING WITH MORE AND
MORE FREQUENCY THIS IS HAPPENING RIGHT HERE IN
THE UNITED STATES AND THEY’RE NOT THE ONLY ONES. IT’S HAPPENED TO SOME
CHRISTIAN PHOTOGRAPHERS IN NEW MEXICO, IT’S HAPPENED
TO OTHERS AS WELL. AND THAT’S JUST THE
TIP OF THE ICE-BERG; THAT’S JUST SORT OF THE
FRONT EDGE OF THIS. THE REALITY IS IT’S NOT
ENOUGH ANYMORE TO JUST SAY HEY YOU LIVE YOUR
LIFE, I’LL LIVE MINE, EVEN THEN YOU WILL BE
FORCED TO COMPLY YOU WILL BE FORCED TO GIVE YOUR
APPROVAL YOU DON’T HAVE THE RIGHT TO SAY I DON’T
WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN THAT, THE GOVERNMENT WILL
FORCE YOU TO PARTICIPATE IN IT AND THEY’RE ON THE
VERGE OF BANKRUPTING THIS CHRISTIAN BUSINESS. NOW SOME CHRISTIANS HAVE
EVEN CRITICIZED THEM AND SAID “OH, JESUS WOULD WANT
THEM TO MAKE THE CAKE.” AND THEY’VE RESPONDED, YOU
KNOW LOOK AT THE WOMAN CAUGHT IN ADULTERY, ON THE
ONE HAND JESUS FORGAVE HER BUT ON THE OTHER HAND HE
SAID “GO AND SIN NO MORE.” SURE, WELL-MEANING
CHRISTIANS HAVE SAID THAT AND THERE’S MUDDLED
THINKING THAT’S HAPPENING WITH THOSE CHRISTIANS,
FIRST OF ALL WE HAVE NO BIBLICAL EVIDENCE THAT
JESUS WOULD’VE PROVIDED A CAKE FOR A WEDDING THAT HE
CONSIDERED TO BE A MOCKERY OF HIS FATHER’S
INSTITUTION OF MARRIAGE, HE NEVER ENDORSED SIN, HE
LOVED SINNERS BUT HE NEVER GAVE HIS STAMP OF
APPROVAL TO SIN. THAT’S WHAT THEY WERE
ASKING THE KLEIN’S TO DO. SECOND OF ALL, WE ALSO
HAVE TO KEEP IN MIND THAT THIS IS NOT ABOUT A CLASS
OF PEOPLE THAT THE KLEIN’S ARE NOT WILLING TO SERVE,
THE KLEIN’S AND MANY LIKE THEM WHO’VE BEEN IN THESE
SIMILAR CASES ARE WILLING TO SAY TO HOMOSEXUALS
WE WILL SERVE YOU, YOU’RE WELCOME COME TO
OUR STORE, BUY OUR CAKES, BUY OUR CUPCAKES,
BUY OUR PRODUCTS, WE WILL BE HAPPY
TO SERVE YOU, WHAT WE’RE NOT WILLING TO
DO IS GIVE OUR STAMP OF APPROVAL TO THIS
PARTICULAR CEREMONY, TO THIS PARTICULAR
INSTITUTION, THAT’S MUCH DIFFERENT THAN
SAYING I WON’T SERVE A PERSON AND WE
KNOW THIS JERRY, THIS IS COMMONSENSE IF WE
JUST TAKE IT OUT OF THAT REALM AND PUT IT
IN OTHER TERMS, LET’S SAY THERE’S AN
AFRICAN-AMERICAN PRINTER AND THE KKK COMES TO TOWN
AND SAYS WE’RE HAVING A RALLY WE WANT THE
AFRICAN-AMERICAN PRINTER TO PRINT THE
ADVERTISEMENTS FOR OUR KKK RALLY, WOULD WE HAVE
A PROBLEM IF THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN SAID I
DON’T CARE TO DO THAT, IN THE AMERICA THAT I KNOW
WE SHOULD ABSOLUTELY HAVE THE RIGHT TO SAY I
DON’T AGREE WITH THAT, I’M NOT PARTICIPATING
IN THAT, THAT’S BEEN COMPLETELY
TURNED UPSIDE-DOWN, YOU WILL COMPLY, YOU WILL
GIVE YOUR APPROVAL TO HOMOSEXUAL MARRIAGE OR
YOU WILL PAY THE PRICE. WELL THE SETTLERS AND
FOUNDERS OF AMERICA WERE VERY BIG ON THE
RIGHT OF CONSCIOUS, FOR EXAMPLE WILLIAM PENN,
FOUNDER OF PENNSYLVANIA, SAID “ALMIGHTY GOD,
BEING THE ONLY LORD OF CONSCIOUS” BUT TODAY
LIBERALS DON’T SEEM TO CARE ABOUT THE RIGHTS OF
CONSCIOUS UNLESS THEY CONFORM WITH THEIR
UNBIBLICAL VIEWS. SO IN A NATION FOUNDED ON
AND FOR RELIGIOUS FREEDOM, CHRISTIANS ARE TOO OFTEN
GETTING IN TROUBLE FOR HAVING POLITICALLY
INCORRECT POSITIONS, BUT AS PAUL SAYS IN ROMANS
3:4 “LET GOD BE TRUE AND EVERY MAN A LIAR.” JOHN THANKS SO MUCH
FOR JOINING US. THANK YOU FOR
HAVING ME JERRY. THE SO-CALLED NEW
TOLERANCE REQUIRES THAT YOU NOT ONLY ALLOW SOMEONE
ELSE THEIR POINT OF VIEW, BUT THAT YOU AGREE WITH
IT-AND EVEN CELEBRATE IT! THE COLUMNIST CHARLES
KRAUTHAMMER ONCE SAID, “LIBERALS DON’T
CARE WHAT YOU DO, AS LONG AS IT’S
MANDATORY.” AND WE SEE THAT PLAYING
OUT IN AMERICA ONCE AGAIN, AS MORE CHRISTIAN
BUSINESSES ARE ATTACKED BY THE GOVERNMENT BECAUSE
THEY REFUSE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE CELEBRATION OF
HOMOSEXUAL SO-CALLED MARRIAGE. THERE ARE MANY WHO ARE
MAKING THESE LAWS WHO WANT TO TAKE AWAY YOUR
FREEDOM-YOUR FREEDOM OF RELIGION, YOUR
FREEDOM OF CONSCIENCE, EVEN YOUR FREEDOM
OF THOUGHT. HATE CRIME LAWS IS ONE OF
THE AVENUES THEY’VE USED IN ORDER TO ACCOMPLISH
THIS AGENDA. THESE LAWS ARE NOT
DESIGNED TO PUNISH BEHAVIORS, BUT
RATHER VIEWPOINTS. AND THEY’RE BEING USED
AGAINST CHRISTIANS EVEN AS WE SPEAK. IT’S ESSENTIAL THAT YOU
UNDERSTAND THE THREAT AND ARE READY FOR IT. IT’S GOING TO REQUIRE
CHRISTIANS STANDING TOGETHER TO DEFEAT SUCH
LAWS AND PROTECT OUR CONSTITUTIONAL FREEDOMS. THAT’S WHY WE WANT TO SEND
YOU THE BOOK 10 TRUTHS ABOUT HATE CRIME

TO SILENCE US IN ORDER TO JUSTIFY THEIR OWN AGENDA. BUT WE CAN’T LET
THEM DO THAT. FOR THE SAKE OF OUR
GOD-GIVEN FREEDOM, AS WELL AS FOR THE SAKE
OF THOSE WHO WILL FOLLOW BEHIND US, WE MUST STAND
