What’s a simple definition of slavery?: “submission to a dominating influence.” If a person is forced to do work against his will, then that person is a slave. Slavery has returned to the United States, this time in the state of Colorado:
“Colorado’s Civil Rights Commission on Friday ordered a baker to make wedding cakes for same-sex couples, finding his religious objections to the practice did not trump the state’s anti-discrimination statutes.”
What did we expect from a panel whose sole job is to root out “discrimination” wherever it is found? No one was harmed in the refusal to bake a cake for something that is illegal in Colorado. That’s right. Homosexual marriage is still illegal in Colorado. Of course, it won’t be long before some unelected judge changes that. The “couple” had been married in Massachusetts and wanted to celebrate their biologically untenable union in the anti-homosexual marriage state of Colorado.
What if a panel of Nazis ordered a Jewish tailor to make patches for Jews to wear that identified them as Jews?
What if a government commission ordered a black printer to print signs for a KKK rally?
What if a government commission compelled a catering service owned by homosexuals to supply food and beverages for an anti-homosexual conference?
