On Tuesday the state of Mississippi joined a handful of other socially conservative states in passing new legislation to protect Christians from the threat of legal action for simply practicing what they believe.
Mississippi’s bill (just as the other state religious freedom laws) simply protects Christians from being sued for holding to their religious beliefs. The fascist gay lobby argues that instead these bills actually discriminate against homosexuals. Why? Because, by giving Christians the freedom to actually practice what they believe, the gay lobby argues that the state is actually sanctioning persecution. Sure, the law doesn’t actually conflict with any federal laws, and sure, it only reinforces the 1st Amendment, but apparently today’s liberals believe that the First Amendment is archaic and discriminatory.
In fact, American liberals are so upset by conservative’s support of the Constitution that they’ve taken to boycotting any states that defend the Constitution.
The cities of Atlanta, Seattle, San Francisco and New York, along with the states of New York and Minnesota, have all banned “non-essential” travel by government officials to North Carolina (and likely soon Mississippi).
However, it’s not just these bigoted liberal enclaves who are attacking conservatives for practicing what they believe.
When Georgia was considering a similar bill, Hollywood, Disney, the NFL, Apple, Marvel Comics and other companies all threatened the Peach State with mass business boycotts. PayPal had planned a move to North Carolina and has now decided to scrap the move in light of the Tar Heel State’s new Religious Freedom law.
Unlike the city and state governments which should be roundly condemned for wading into the politics and policies of these other states, the private organizations like PayPal, Apple, Disney, etc. all have the freedom to do as they wish with their businesses.
HOWEVER, we conservatives enjoy the same freedom. If these businesses are so averse to our money that they won’t do business in our states and cities, then why are we spending our hard-earned dollars on their products? Folks, it’s time that we conservatives show just how much financial power we have. Stop spending your money with businesses that detest us, stop sending your cash to organizations that hate what you believe, and mock everything you stand for.
If PayPal won’t go to North Carolina, then every citizen of North Carolina (and conservatives everywhere) should stop spending their money with PayPal. Let’s hit these liberal companies where it really hurts.
North Carolina’s Lt. Governor Dan Forest answered the PayPal fiasco well; here’s what he had to say:
“If our action in keeping men out of women’s bathrooms and showers protected the life of just one child or one woman from being molested or assaulted, then it was worth it. North Carolina will never put a price tag on the value of our children. They are precious and priceless. If a corporation wanting to do business in North Carolina does not see the worth of our children in the same light, then I wish them well as they do business somewhere else.”
Amen, Lt. Governor. Keep up the good work and don’t let they hypocritical gay fascists intimidate you!
