This week, Texas passed a bill referred to as “Save Chick-fil-A.” The bill will go a long way in protecting those who cherish their religious liberties. As you can imagine, the left is outraged. They are trying to oppose the bill, and anyone that supports it. Their shocking lack of respect for our First Amendment rights tells you everything you need to know about them.
It’s pretty sad how little Democrats care about Americans’ religious rights. Freedom of religion is one of the most important rights protected under our Constitution. It is the first right listed in the Bill of Rights. In fact, it is the very reason the first settlers of America left Europe to come here.
But today, liberals across the country trample our right to worship God, in favor of protecting the so-called rights of one small group.
Democrats have frequently attacked Christians and Christian-owned businesses for their views on homosexuality. They have tried to destroy a bakery, just because the owner believes in the Bible. Some liberals have even tried to destroy the careers of beloved Fixer Upper stars, the Gaines, because of their strong Christian faith and their church’s stance of gay marriage.
And of course, there is Chick-fil-A. We all know that this restaurant was founded by a devout Christian. It has locations all across America. It is one of the most popular restaurants in the country and has exploded in size over recent years.
Yet, because the owner has expressed his support for the Biblical definition of marriage, Democrats want it gone. Democrats and the gay community have been calling for a boycott of this restaurant for nearly a decade. They want every person who works at Chick-fil-A, young or old, black or white, gay or straight, to be out of a job.
All because the owner is a Christian.
Texas lawmakers have had enough. They recently passed a bill, soon to be signed by the governor, that strikes a blow for all religious citizens. The bill forbids the government from taking action against a person based on their religious background. It upholds our First Amendment rights and will prevent Democrats from persecuting Christians over gay rights issues.
Of course, Democrats are panicking.
On Tuesday, the Texas House passed SB 1978, the so-called “Save Chick-fil-A” bill, engendering blowback from Democrats and LGBTQ activists. The bill passed 79-64 after passing the Texas Senate 19-12 last week. It now heads for the desk of Texas Governor Greg Abbott, who has left little doubt he will sign the bill into law…
Rep. Matt Krause, the author of the House bill, who stated there’s “no discriminatory intent in (the bill) at all,” adding, “We want to make sure that if you give to the Salvation Army, you’re not labeled bigoted or discriminatory.”
The bill states, “Notwithstanding any other law, a governmental entity may not take any adverse action against any person based wholly or partly on the person’s membership in, affiliation with, or contribution, donation, or other support provided to a religious organization.” [Source: Daily Wire]
Democrats in Texas and around the country want gay people to have more rights than the rest of us. They attack, sue, and bully anyone that dares to have an opinion that contradicts their own. If you believe in the Bible and call yourself a Christian, they instantly label you a bigot or homophobe.
They try to use gay rights as a way to discriminate against the millions of Christians in America. Their goal is clear: to erode our First Amendment rights so that, one day, we can’t even openly profess our faith.
Meanwhile, gay and transgender people are encouraged to throw their lifestyles in our faces. If anyone even hints at disagreement, they are branded monsters.
Texas is standing up for the millions of Americans that have been bullied, ignored, and slandered by the left. This new bill will prevent—at least in Texas—Democrats’ ongoing campaign to erase America’s Biblical foundations.
Now all that’s left is for the rest of the states to follow suit.
