Supreme Court bashes State's anti-Christian agenda

Submitted by Freedomman on Thu, 07/06/2023 - 10:42

WASHINGTON (PNN) - June 30, 2023 - The Fascist Police States of Amerika Supreme Court on Friday slapped down the latest attack by Leftists in the State of Colorado on Christianity.

It ruled that the State, under the guise of a "non-discrimination" law, cannot force a graphic designer to violate her Christian faith and promote homosexual “marriages”.

The case involved Lorie Smith and her 303 Creative, which does graphic designs and creates websites. She wants to do websites for traditional weddings, but the State had demanded that if she did any business of that type, she also must promote homosexual weddings.

Not happening, the High Court ruled.

"The First Amendment’s protections belong to all, not just to speakers whose motives the government finds worthy. In this case, Colorado seeks to force an individual to speak in ways that align with its views but defy her conscience about a matter of major significance," the
ruling said.

"Consistent with the First Amendment, the nation’s answer is tolerance, not coercion. The First Amendment envisions the (FPSA) as a rich and complex place where all persons are free to think and speak as they wish, not as the government demands. Colorado cannot deny that promise
consistent with the First Amendment," the Court said.

The 6-3 opinion was delivered by Justice Neil Gorsuch. It was the Leftist trio on the court, Justices Jackson, Kagan and Sotomayor, who claimed that the State could, in fact, force anyone to say anything as long as it aligned with State ideology.

The State had, through its "Colorado Anti-Discrimination Act," posed the potential of punishing Smith for living by her faith.

To clarify her rights, Smith filed a lawsuit seeking an injunction to prevent the State from forcing her to create websites celebrating marriages that defy her belief that marriage should be reserved to unions between one man and one woman.

"CADA prohibits all 'public accommodations' from denying 'the full and equal enjoyment' of its goods and services to any customer based on his race, creed, disability, sexual orientation, or other statutorily enumerated trait," the Court said.

Stipulated in the case was the fact that Smith was "willing to work with all people regardless of classifications such as race, creed, sexual orientation, and gender."

But she could not create content that contradicts "biblical truth".

"The Framers designed the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment to protect the freedom to think as you will and to speak as you think," the ruling said.

"The freedom to speak is among our unalienable rights. Freedom of thought and speech is indispensable to the discovery and spread of political truth. For these reasons, [i]f there is any fixed star in our constitutional constellation, it is the principle that the government may
not interfere with an uninhibited marketplace of ideas," the opinion said.

Gorsuch wrote, "Smith’s websites will express and communicate ideas - namely, those that celebrate and promote the couple’s wedding and unique love story and those that celebrate and promote what Ms. Smith understands to be a marriage. Speech conveyed over the Internet, like all
other manner of speech, qualifies for the First Amendment’s protections. The Court agrees with the Tenth Circuit that the wedding websites Ms. Smith seeks to create involve her speech, a conclusion supported by the parties’ stipulations, including that Ms. Smith intends to produce a final story for each couple using her own words and original artwork."

In short, "Smith seeks to engage in protected First Amendment speech; Colorado seeks to compel speech she does not wish to provide."

In fact, the ruling said the State's goal is censorship of ideas that it does not like.

"Colorado seeks to compel this speech in order to excise certain ideas or viewpoints from the public dialogue," the ruling said.

"Under Colorado’s logic, the government may compel anyone who speaks for pay on a given topic to accept all commissions on that same topic - no matter the message - if the topic somehow implicates a customer’s statutorily protected trait. Taken seriously, that principle would allow the government to force all manner of artists, speechwriters, and others whose services involve speech to speak what they do not believe on pain of penalty."

The ruling discounted Colorado's unsupported claim that the dispute involves simply a commercial product to be bought or sold.

The State's same ideology was struck down, only on narrow grounds, in the State's persecution of Jack Phillips, who declined, as owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, to promote homosexual unions based on his constitutionally protected religious and speech rights.

In that case, the State had tried to impose a reindoctrination program on Phillips, to address his beliefs about homosexual marriage.

The Supreme Court handed him a victory in a decision that scolded the State of Colorado then for its "hostility" to Phillips' Christian faith. But the narrow decision was based on that hostility and didn't resolve the issue that is the sole question in the new case: "Whether
applying a public accommodation law to compel an artist to speak or stay silent violates the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment?"

In a recently developed dispute, a Christian preschool is suing the State after the Leftists in government in Colorado ordered it to drop its Christian beliefs.

George Washington University professor and legal commentator Jonathan Turley had predicted the State would fare ill in the fight brought on by the all-Democrat State legislature and Leftist homosexual governor, the multi-millionaire Jared Polis, in Colorado.

Turley noted while he personally supports homosexual “marriages”, he doubted the legality of the State's Anti-Discrimination Act that has as its very purpose to be "eliminating ideas".

He said, "Many years ago, I wrote an academic piece on how anti-discrimination laws would inevitably collide with free-speech and free-exercise rights. Those conflicts continued to mount across the country. In 2018, the Court was thought to be ready to clarify the applicable standards in the case of a religious cake shop owner who refused to make cakes for homosexual
couples. The Court ultimately punted in that case, Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, ruling for the owner yet leaving uncertainty over the constitutional limitations on cities and states under anti-discrimination laws."

He said the new decision would be a "new, bright line".
