“Hate Bill” Favoritism

If “hate bill”-obsessed Congress can’t protect Christians from “gays” as much as it wants to protect “gays” from Christians, will Congress be surprised if it can’t protect itself from most everyone? If “hate bills” are forced on captive Americans, they’ll still find ways to sneakily continue to “plant” Biblical messages everywhere. By doing so they’ll hasten God’s judgment on their oppressors as revealed in Proverbs 19:1. (See related web items including “David Letterman’s Hate, Etc.,” “Separation of Raunch and State,” “Michael the Narc-Angel,” and “Bible Verses Obama Avoids.”) Since Congress can’t seem to legislate “morality,” it’s making up for it by legislating “immorality”!

Yes, hopefully you are the only one to see irony in this. The actions of which you speak were not perpetrated by the US government, but hotels. Moreover, we are talking about hotels in two very different parts of the country. While the gist of your point is clear, the logic is not. Furthermore, because of a history of discrimination against various religious groups, all religious groups are a protected class under many federal anti-discrimination laws. Hence, no hotel wants to open itself up to a lawsuit for discriminating against an Islamic group. You protest Ms. Brown’s treatment in securing a venue for her press conference regarding Prop 8. Form the sounds of it, Ms. Brown was representing a political organizing group seeking to hold a press conference on a political matter. This is not an apples to apples comparison. Had Ms. Brown been representing a church, there would be an apples to apples comparison here. She was not, so there is not. In any event, if religiously based morality is the basis for Prop 8, then THIS would seem to run afoul of the establishment clause of the First Amendment.

Naturally, as this is a conservative blog, we must agree to disagree. Whether it was the hotel or not, it should trouble every American that this was not just a planned conference, but one that actually took place. Thank you for exercising your 1st Amendment right to express your opinion, though we do not see eye to eye on this issue.
