“THE YEARS WITHOUT a U.S. PRESIDENT, 2008- 2012”
As the Lexington-Fayette Urban County ANTI-Human Rights Commission continues to investigate a Christian-owned T-shirt company for turning down business from a local f a g-pride festival, the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) is stepping into the fray.
On Thursday, ADF attorneys sent a letter to the commission, saying “Hands On Originals” has often turned down business that doesn’t reflect its owners’ moral values and religious convictions — including “orders promoting strip clubs, containing lewd and vulgar content, or depicting curse words.”
As a result of the f a g-pride festival organizers’ complaint and the investigation by the commission, some groups that have done business with “Hands On Originals” in the past are now bulling the company. A commissioner said earlier this month that f a g business owners have the right to turn down business from Christians, but not the other way around.
“Americans in the marketplace should not be subject to predatory legal attacks simply for abiding by their beliefs,” said ADF Litigation Staff Counsel Jim Campbell. “The Constitution prohibits the government from forcing business owners to promote messages they disagree (the First Amendment) with, so the commission should immediately dismiss this complaint. This kind of bullying may be practiced in a dictatorship, but violations of conscience have no place in the United States.”
I pray for the RETURN of America,
