Another Snapshot of Intolerance
Perkins on SCOTUS’ denial of Huguenin.
Tony Perkins: “The First Amendment guarantees more than the freedom to speak. It also protects the freedom not to speak – a right the U.S. Supreme Court just denied Elaine Huguenin. … Obviously, the courts are viewing the case of Elane Photography through the lens of political correctness – not the Constitution, which is the expression of personal views, even in the marketplace. (That’s why they call it the free market!) Of course, the irony is that the couple at the center of this firestorm, the Willocks, found another photographer to shoot the ceremony – for less money! Still, they still insisted on making a public example of the Huguenins, including dragging them through an eight-year legal ordeal. Unfortunately, this is just a close-up of what’s happening around the country in business, sports, Hollywood, and schools. Homosexual activists are absolutely determined to punish people who refuse to embrace and celebrate their lifestyle choices. Isn’t that what the Obama administration has done with its HHS mandate? If the Left can’t crowd conservatives out of the marketplace, then it will enlist the courts or the White House to force them out – whether it’s constitutional or not.”
