Trump Supporters Aren’t Welcome
So... Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked to leave a restaurant, by the owner, because of the owner’s alleged “moral obligation.” That’s interesting, because those who believe homosexuality and transgenderism is sin do so based on their morals. I wonder what the media reaction would be, if a homosexual were to be asked to leave an establishment for the same reason? Don’t get me wrong. I strongly support the idea that a private business owner should be able to choose who they serve. Yet, it is what you choose to do with that freedom that speaks volumes.
If individuals can’t serve others with whom they disagree, and this becomes the norm, then Americans will be further galvanized against one another for even the most trivial of reasons. If a disagreement is enough to break from one another, our union is destined for failure from within.
If anyone cares to bring up the Christian Baker case, I would argue that these situations are nowhere near the same. The Christian baker serves homosexuals, or anyone else for that matter, provided that they do not ask him to compromise his beliefs in celebrating or promoting an act he believes to be sinful. In that case, two homosexual men wanted a wedding cake commemorating or celebrating their homosexual marriage. Anyone familiar with the Bible understands God’s stance on marriage (I Corinthians 7:1-16) and homosexuality (I Timothy 1:8-11). They are sinful behavior. So, the baker rightly refused to Involve himself in the celebration of a homosexual marriage.
In the case of the restaurant owner and WH Press Secretary Sanders, the owner decided she couldn’t tolerate having Mrs. Sanders occupy space in her establishment for a second beyond the completion of her meal. Allowing Sarah Sanders to occupy the restaurant provided no justifiable moral hazard for the restaurant owner, but there was a golden opportunity to earn plenty of the political currency the Left places such a high value on: virtue signaling. At the end of the day, this was simply virtue signaling masquerading as a moral dilemma. Once again, the intolerant Left show their true colors.
