There has been a tremendous amount of time spent in the newscasts about gay marriage, and bakeries, florists, state laws, religious freedom, personal freedom, discrimination and such. Discrimination, even if it does not exist is being proliferated all across our nation about various issues. Unfortunately, this appears to be a top down phenomenon. Our elected officials believe that an unstable society is easier to manage and gives them more power. It’s not just in the USA, look at the Middle East countries and listen to what the locals there say; they believe the US does not want a Middle Eastern peace. It is sad that the people who pursue power trample on a society of normal loving people. Of course, this action is nothing new, it has occurred throughout the history of this earth. In the United States, instead of conquering cities and towns by physical force, our government conquers us psychologically. We are belittled and demeaned, and told that something is true even if it is not. This is done so elegantly in our so called advanced society that vast amounts of people believe many things that are not true. Many people simply don’t know what to believe anymore. As this disease in our society continues to grow; the people in government, and the wealthy elite who pulls the strings of government folks- gain not only wealth, but power which is their holy grail. Such is our life friends.
The bakeries and florists that refuse to sell their goods and services to gay folks wanting to get married based on religious beliefs have been in the spotlight recently. I have been in many restaurants across this country which has a sign posted that the establishment reserves the right to refuse service to anyone. I have wondered if these signs were speaking truth, or just decoration. I also have wondered if these bakeries and florists are the only business of its kind in the town where gay folks want to get married in. I have personally quit shopping at a variety of businesses over my lifetime because the service was bad, the product was bad, or I just got a bad feeling. I have never considered suing these establishments because someone was rude.
Let’s say a Christian works in … let’s just say a professing Christian works. If you are a team member at a car manufacturer, are you going to refuse to build a car because a gay couple will use that car to leave their wedding and the car be all kinds of decorated up celebrating their marriage? If so, you need to find a different job because that very car you touched may be going down the road with the happy couple. What kind of job will you get if you leave the automotive industry? Let’s say to go into making sugar at a sugar factory. That sugar you are making will go into a gay couple’s wedding cake so you need to leave that job as well. So you go to a business that mass bakes cookies, Twinkies, little snack cakes, and all kinds of baked goods. You can’t work their either because gay folks eat those sweet snacks a well. Any product sold in San Francisco, CA will likely be bought by a LGBT person since that city is said to have a lot of gay folks living there so; you can’t be a part of any company who sells their products in San Francisco. Maybe you can go into making plastic utensils … nope; some gay couples will use your plastic utensils at their wedding. Become an author! Nope, gay folks might buy your book or give it as a wedding gift. Imagine me having a form on Amazon asking a potential buyer if they are gay and if so, I won’t sell my book or future books to them. LOL! Does a Christian musician sell their music to gay folks? Yep! Does a Christian radio station allow gay folks to listen to their station? Yep! Christian music may even be played at a wedding for gay couple … and the crowd says, “Oh no, say it isn’t so”!
Folks, I will have to continue this discussion in another letter. Stay tuned to this station later … as I continue the story of gay, or not so gay, tales from beyond the physical, into the mist of thought.~b
