-ACLU: Will Not Defend Religious Freedom of Christians

by Dr. D ~ June 30th, 2015

ACLU

The ACLU recently announced that they would no longer defend and support the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) specifically because they claim that the RFRA is now used as a tool of discrimination. What they are really saying is that they will not support the religious liberty of conservative Christians who oppose same-sex marriage. Here’s the story from the Washington Post:

The ACLU supported the RFRA’s passage at the time because it didn’t believe the Constitution, as newly interpreted by the Supreme Court, would protect people such as Iknoor Singh, whose religious expression does not harm anyone else. But we can no longer support the law in its current form. For more than 15 years, we have been concerned about how the RFRA could be used to discriminate against others. As the events of the past couple of years amply illustrate, our fears were well-founded. While the RFRA may serve as a shield to protect Singh, it is now often used as a sword to discriminate against women, gay and transgender people and others. Efforts of this nature will likely only increase should the Supreme Court rule — as is expected — that same-sex couples have the freedom to marry.

Response: So the ACLU supports civil liberties and freedom for everyone except conservative Christians. Actually this is really nothing new. Rarely have ACLU lawyers taken on any cases defending Christians.

What about Muslims and Orthodox Jews who have similar beliefs that they could also label as ‘discriminatory’? If a Muslim business owner refuses to be involved in a same–sex ceremony is that also discrimination or does the concern over Islamophobia over rule it all in that case? Probably will never find out since gay activists will never have the guts to confront a Muslim business owner.

Christians might be called ‘bigots’ when it comes to same-sex marriage but in reality no one would ever be concerned about their health in confronting a Christian business owner since most are actually caring and loving to everyone regardless.                 *Top
