The Bill of Rights was added after the Constitution was ratified. Many States would not have signed the Constitution if the first 10 amendments were not promised. The Rights of individuals took presidence over the rights of government.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Aaron Halliday of Checker Cab is under attack because of a sign at his business. Nothing in the 1st Amendment says people have a right to not be offended. Freedom of Speech folks. The Supreme Court ruled 8-1 the Westboro Baptist lunatics have a right to protest military funerals. (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/03/02/westboro-baptist-church-w_n_830209.html) As vile as their speech is they have a right to say it. Yet some local clowns get upset over a sign? Seriously?
Hillary Clinton campaigns on “Deep-seated religious beliefs” have to be changed: http://freedomslighthouse.net/2015/04/25/hillary-clinton-declares-war-on-deep-seated-religious-beliefs-in-order-to-advance-abortion-on-demand-video-42315/
Congress isn’t making laws, but the courts are. A baker in Oregon is out of business and fined $135,000 for refusing to bake a cake for a gay wedding. A photographer in New Mexico was found guilty of discrimination for refusing to photograph a gay wedding. Prohibiting the free exercise of religion is now undermined by judges who think people have a right to not be offended. All rights are under attack and will soon disappear if being politically correct isn’t stopped.
Sunday the following was distributed at my church and maybe yours. The Supreme Court will rule on whether gay marriage is legal. First, I’m going to post all the signers, then the letter. If it offends you, get over it. Your rights end when they infringe on mine. Click either picture to enlarge it.
