Over the next few years you are going to be branded as bigots, hated and derided. You will be portrayed in every form of culture, plays, TV series and movies as people to be shunned and no member of the media fill fail to come after you for your offenses against the twin sacraments of Abortion & Gay Marriage.

DaTechGuy Good Friday 2013

As I watched the left go into full propaganda mode this Easter weekend on the Sunday Shows concerning Gay Marriage I think the next step must be to make sure that Christians can’t clandestinely defy the state, maybe something like this:

The new law would create a force of federal commissioners empowered to cite Christians in any state and compel their cooperation with Gay Marriage. No statute of limitations would apply, so that even those who had opposed gay marriage at the time it was not law could be cited.

We can give such commissioners broad powers, perhaps the right to compel citizens to assist in the pursuit and identification of such businesses owners with fines and imprisonment awaited those who refuse to cooperate. United States marshals can be required to be diligent in the enforcement of the act and could be fined for being lax. An incentive can be offered perhaps giving the commissioners a fee from the fines applied to business if found to defy standards of service.

Such a law would likely force Christian business’ underground, perhaps even with clandestine networks of people and clergy using the net to direct the faithful to business that the law is targeting. But even so I’m sure the feds aided by their allies on the left will do all their can to discover and shut down those defying such a law.

You might be saying: “DaTechGuy, you are an alarmist, we would never see such a law like this in the US.”,  however anyone who actually has knowledge of US history would realize there is already a precedent for this as evidenced by the unedited version of the two paragraphs above:

The new law created a force of federal commissioners empowered to pursue fugitive slaves in any state and return them to their owners. No statute of limitations applied, so that even those slaves who had been free for many years could be (and were) returned.

The commissioners enjoyed broad powers, including the right to compel citizens to assist in the pursuit and apprehension of runaways; fines and imprisonment awaited those who refused to cooperate. United States marshals were required to be diligent in the enforcement of the act and could be fined for being lax. A captured runaway could not testify on his own behalf and was not entitled to a court trial. The commissioners received a fee of 10 dollars for every slave returned; the fee was reduced to five dollars if the accused slave were released.

By an odd coincidence it was devout Christians, who defied these laws the most and as it was during the civil rights age and as it is now during the Fight against abortion it will be devout Christians who will keep up the fight against the civic “leaders” attempting us to defy our consequences and our God.

Exit thought:  Is it a coincidence that Slavery, Jim Crow, Abortion & now the Totalitarian pushing of Gay Marriage all were strongly supported by Democrats?

IndianaBy John Ruberry

Twenty years ago if you were unhappy with a business, let’s say a check out clerk was rude to you or you were served a rotten meal, you had some effective ways of getting back. Of course these methods still exist. You can never patronize that business again and tell your friends not to do so as well.

Last week a South Bend, Indiana television reporter ventured outside of her city and traveled to tiny Walkerton, a place she probably never heard of before, where she interviewed one of the owners of Memories Pizza, a family business, who told the reporter that because of their Christian beliefs they would not cater a gay wedding–if they were was asked. The reporter found the “gotcha” story in the sticks that she was seeking in regards to Indiana’s new Religious Restoration Freedom Act.

Then the militant left went on the attack. The owners went into hiding after receiving a death threat.

And then the online attacks poured in Actually they’re still coming. Memories’ Yelp page has been inundated with “reviews” from people who lives almost everywhere but northern Indiana. On the other hand, a high school coach from nearby Goshen took to Twitter to suggest that Memories be burned down. She has since been suspended.  As I mentioned in my post here last week, Yelp’s CEO condemned Indiana’s RFRA, although just last month his firm opened an office in Illinois–which has a similar law.

Years ago I was at a concert where Elvis Costello answered a heckler who was shouting that he should play “Clubland,” by replying with something blues singer Little Willie John once said. “I remember the good old days,” Costello quipped, “they’re gone now. ”

True, very true.

But there is some good news. Supporters of Memories Pizza and religious freedom started a GoFundMe.com drive for the owners of the restaurant–and it has received $800,000.

The internet is a two-edged sword.

John Ruberry regularly blogs at Marathon Pundit.

On twitter there is a big move to start a “boycott Indiana” movement for its decision to be the 20th state to pass a Religious Freedom Law to protect Christians from persecution for refusing to support Gay Marriage.

By an odd coincidence the same media types who have been attacking the Gov of Indiana have been cheering the opening of the (Ted)  Kennedy Center

Instead, Vice President Joe Biden will preside over a full-size replica Senate chamber at the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate in Boston, with current and former senators at their desks, high school students on the floor and Kennedy family members in the gallery.

The institute opens Monday with a dedication speech by President Obama.and a who’s who of Massachusetts politicians, United States senators and Kennedy kin.

What’s odd about this is it was Ted Kennedy who gave this speech:

The Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which Senator Hatch and I, and 23 other Senators have introduced, would restore the compelling interest test for evaluating free exercise claims. It would do so by establishing a statutory right that adopts the stand­ards previously, used by the Supreme Court. In essence, the act codifies the requirement for the Government to demonstrate that any law burdening the free exercise of religion is essential to fur­thering a compelling governmental interest and is the least restric­tive means of achieving that interest.

It was this law championed by Kennedy that is the basis for the laws in the various states that the left is calling “bigotry” and “hate”

Yet I haven’t heard a single one of the people who spent the weekend comparing supporters of this law to KKK members or Jim Crow fans calling for a boycott of the Kennedy event today or urging the President and Vice President to give it a miss.

I’m shocked at the prospect that the outrage of the left might only be based on political advantage.

Aren’t you?
