And So It Goes…#819

The law should not compel businesses to aid political messages

On October 24 ,2016, the Appeal Court in Belfast  ruled that a local Christian-run business, Ashers Bakery, was wrong to refuse to decorate a cake with a pro-gay marriage message.Human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell said :-

“This verdict is a defeat for freedom of expression. As well as meaning that Ashers can be legally forced to aid the promotion of same-sex marriage,It seems that businesses cannot now lawfully refuse a customer’s request to propagate a message,even if the business has a conscientious objection to it.” Tatchell concluded,“Although I strongly disagree with Ashers opposition to marriage equality, in a free society neither they nor anyone else should be compelled to facilitate a political idea that they oppose.”

The Appeal Court ruling shows the extent of anti-Christian sentiment in our Society and just how far the bedrock of Western civilisation has been marginalised over the decades by a relentless campaign of institutionalised political vilification and slander. This does not bode well for the future. The sound we can all hear is that of the metropolitan elitist jackboots trampling down our historic liberty.
