The SCOTUS has spoken about the right of bakers to refuse to bake a cake for homosexualists, and it is a huge victory for sanity.
Don’t believe the talk of “limited decision”. The decision is clear enough in the statement that the baker cannot be forced to put his skills at work for what he knows to be a wrong purpose.
The wider decision that is still out – and which might end up differently – is, put in simple terms, whether the delivery of any good, in any circumstance, can be denied based on religious principles.
However, any sane man understands the difference between a baker refusing to sell bread he has on the shelf, or flowers he has on offer for anyone to grab, pay and take away – and offered to the general public as is – to a person based on his being a sodomite, and a baker refusing to bake and decorate a cake expressly for the purpose of celebrating sodomy.
Even in Catholic Italy, certain elementary goods (like bread, sugar, milk, pasta, tobacco) could not be refused to anyone by anyone who was selling them to the public. How far the principle can be extended is matter for debate and cultural circumstances. But that a Christian should be forced to put in place a skilled activity, on order, that goes against his Christian principles is atrocious.
This is, therefore, a great day. I mean, a huge day. It is the day the Gaystapo-mentality, the entire concept of ramming their perversion down the throat if other people, is soundly rejected.
The bakers won 7 to 2. This is not even a “narrow” victory. Even the lesbian Helena Kagan voted in favour of the bakers, and only two rabid feminists (one very old and hopefully soon gone or retired, the other allegedly very diabetic and soon retired) have dared to support the total insanity of the Gaystapo.
I remind you that in the UK the owners of a bed and breakfast are not allowed to refuse sodomites a room under their own very roof. Madness. Insanity. Today’s news might, one day, reverse this kind of nonsense, too.
This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.
Promptly for the Feast of the Republic (which, in Italy, is traditionally celebrated with a huge military parade; oh, the incorrectness! What will The Francis think?) Italy has a new government, and it seems to have come out of some drunken nightmare of Mr Juncker.
I will await to see whether this government will first live long and then deliver an effective policy against the MerkelMadness. But to me it seems clear enough that this revolution is growing, and will likely not be stopped by the inefficiency of coalition partners or the threats from Berlin and Brussels. If this government does not deliver, chances are the Italians will vote in a government which does, without need for any coalition.
The centre-right coalition was only 3% away from the absolute majority. Let the culona inchiavabile reflect on this.
I hope the new government (but mainly: the Lega, in which my hopes rest) will be able to deliver an immigration policy based on sanity. But if not, I trust that the Italian people – who are far too kind and patient, but become quite unkind when their patience is abused for too long – will force a remedy for that. And no, I do not trust the Five Star Movement. But yes, I think both inside and outside the Lega there are good, patriotic people who want to deliver the goods.
We will now, in pure Italian style, listen to some strong proclaims. Whether facts follow them remains to be seen.
But when you wake up people’s appetite for sanity, they will want to have it on the table at some point.
