Human Rights Commission Says the Freedom to Practice Religion Is not a Human Right

The Human Rights Commission of Lexington KY justifies the gay fascist bullying campaign against Christian businesses who don’t wish to participate in gay weddings and other events by saying Christians should only be allowed to practice religion within their homes and churches.

The Human Rights Commission in Lexington, Kentucky has a chilling message for Christian business owners who refuse service to LGBT organizations: leave your religion at home.

“It would be safe to do so, yes,” Executive Director Raymond Sexton told me. “Or in this case you can find yourself two years down the road and you’re still involved in a legal battle because you did not do so.”

Under Obama, the First Amendment has been amended by an activist judiciary. Anyone who opens a business forfeits his Constitutional rights, and the right to the free exercise of religion is conditioned upon no special LGBTQWRXYZ snowflakes get their feelings hurt.

  1. They play a dangerous game. Many organizations end up being sued over complications in free speech/expression issues.
    These people hold European & UN institutions’ standards & definitions as examples of religious freedom & freedoms of expression. Despite the fact that Europe severely restricts each. Informing Libs about this, causes confusion.

  3. Somebody want to shove the First Amendment is these arrogant asses face?

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

    If you limit religion to homes and churches, yes, you ARE prohibiting the free exercise thereof.

  5. I remember when we had signs “We reserve the right not to serve anyone”. I believe that this was when the country did not have all the trouble it has today.
    Kids got spanked when they did something wrong. (I got my share and so did my brother, and surprise we have respect for authority and respect for others)
    Schools did not have a bunch of screaming swearing kids disrupting the lessons.
    Illegals were exactly that ILLEGAL.
    There were no “gun-free zones” and we did not have massive shootings.
    Marriage was something to be respected and usually administered by a religious person.
    And most of all Religion was as much in government as it was in the public sector.
    Life was better when I was growing up.
    I wish we could go back to it.

  6. Add Free Speech to the long list of things that shrivel and die once the progressives decide to “protect” it.

    These people no longer even bother to pretend they’re not totalitarian.

  7. At least they’re honest about their tyrranical intent.

  8. Am I okay with the idea of same-sex couples having the same rights as opposite-sex couples? Yes, in theory. However, as I have said before, the tactics of the authoritarian Left (and yes, despite their supposed love for personal liberty, they are authoritarian to the bone) make same-sex marriage unpalatable to me.

    I also have my own personal cultural reasons for disliking same-sex marriage, but that’s besides the point.

  9. Yet nothing is done to muslims that refuse service to veterans, and people needing seeing eye dogs. The left has done so much damage to marriage I don’t think anyone in their right mind would enter into it. Just wait until one of the gay channels starts with a show on gay divorces. Puff Divorce Slapfest would be like watching Bait Car, it could even follow Duck Dynasty.

  10. “leave your religion at home.”

    How would they feel if that were re-worded:

    Leave your gayness at home

    That’s a knife that could cut both ways.

  11. You are free to practice any homosexual act you choose provided it’s confined to your home or gay establishments.

    Yep, bet that would go over well with the commission.

    Progressives get so caught up in their quest to find that speck of intolerance in opponent’s eyes that they fail to see the log of intolerance in their own.

    The left argues a lie-they believe in tolerance so long as the thing being tolerated is something they support.

  16. On the other hand (according to Dem prez hopeful Martin O’Malley) WiFi IS a human right. So we’ve got that going for us.

  17. France recently banned Muslim women from wearing burqas in public. According to the logic of the person the blog post mentioned, the French government has every right to do so, considering Muslim women can wear burqas in their homes or their mosques.

    Comment by Paul — October 9, 2014 @ 12:38 am - October 9, 2014

  18. Paul, burkhas cover the head and face. Many, if not most public buildings/businesses here, do not allow you to wear masks either.
    Also, freedom of religion/speech is built into our Constitution. Muslims can wear what they want so long as they don’t cover their faces….which, btw, burkhas and hijabs are not a requirement.

  19. Rusty…and Paul, this company has done business with the gay community before and has gays on staff. They just did not want to do this particular job. They shouldn’t have to defend their reason. A business should have the right to turn down whatever jobs they don’t want to do.
    I worked at a bakery and we, on occasion, would tell a customer ‘no’ because we don’t do penis cakes or drawings, boob cakes, write foul or demeaning language, obnoxious
    people, or causes the owners didn’t want anything to do with.

    Comment by Annie — October 9, 2014 @ 2:01 am - October 9, 2014

  20. I meant the logic of the liberal V the K mentioned who said that freedom of religion only belongs in the church or home. Well, if liberals believe religion only belongs in a church, then surely that liberal person supports France banning the burqa too.

    Comment by Paul — October 9, 2014 @ 8:00 am - October 9, 2014

  21. How about leave your liberalism at home. Lets restrict free speech for everybody. Restate the First Amendment that freedom of speech may only be practiced in the privacy of one’s home. Any public criticism of any person, groups of persons,institution, or religion is strictly prohibited and will be punished. I think local and national Human Rights Commision should have to apply for a license to investigate (just as private investigators do), if they are an educational organization they must publicly announce classes, course title, and hours, and as an enforcement agency, they should declare what they are entitledto enforce. All levels of HRC should be required to publish their list of donors.

    Anne @#5. I’m with you 100%.
