Rep. Jared Polis wants to outlaw "so-called" religious freedom

After radical homosexuals succeeded in using mafia-styled intimidation tactics against the Republican cowards in Indiana following passage of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, forcing them to reverse the law while providing special rights for homosexuals, the gay mob kicked the machine into overdrive.

And, just like a true organized crime family, the gay mafia have a few politicians in their back pockets doing their bidding.

In a new move intended to provide special rights for homosexuals while denying constitutional rights for anyone who disagrees with them, [mc_name name=’Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO)’ chamber=’house’ mcid=’P000598′ ] (D-CO) has joined in leading a push to pass a Federal LGBT Resolution Opposing Discrimination in opposition to “so-called” religious freedom. An idea that clearly violates the 1st Amendment:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof….

Joined by [mc_name name=’Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN)’ chamber=’house’ mcid=’C001072′ ] (D-IN), the proposal wold force Christians to provide their services for homosexual events, even if it violates their faith. Carson said it’s “long past time” for Congress to set in stone bans on such decisions based on religion. He asserted “all Americans, regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity,” need to know they are “valued members of our society.”

He concludes with a bit of irony, saying: “They deserve to live their lives like any other American, free from intolerance because of who they are.” Why do call it irony? Because he concluded his comments with a call for America to be intolerant of “discrimination faced by the LGBT community.”

In an interview with the Loveland Reporter-Herald, Polis defended his attack on the Constitution by saying:

“Recent events in Indiana and Arkansas have shown that some people will continue to choose to discriminate until Congress acts to provide LGBT Americans with equal protections in all 50 states.”

Isn’t it interesting that they don’t provide a single constitutional reason for their demands? Why is that?

It’s because there’s no such thing as “so-called” religious freedom; there’s only religious freedom, and the 1st Amendment to the Constitution protects it. It also protects freedom of speech, freedom of the press, the right to assemble, and the right to petition the government. This group of rights are absolutely essential to any Republic, and without them, no Republic can survive.

The Constitution is on life support and is precariously close to death. Meanwhile, members of the Gay Mafia, such as [mc_name name=’Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO)’ chamber=’house’ mcid=’P000598′ ], want to pull the plug.
