The left has one overriding passion: to destroy the nuclear family.
In place of the family, the left wants government, totalitarian government dressed up as a “people’s democracy.”
The move to redefine marriage is also a direct assault on religious traditions.
Once you understand that everything the left believes and does is designed to undermine traditional religion and the family unit, you begin to comprehend the grim social engineering that is the core of leftism.
Gay marriage does not end with legalizing gay marriage. That’s where destroying the family and the traditional religious community begins. And the battle to destroy the family is, ultimately, a religious battle, as the story of the persecuted Christian bakers illustrates.
The next step is obvious. A Jewish homosexual couple will ask an Orthodox rabbi to perform their wedding. The rabbi will refuse and he will be sued for discrimination, and then hounded and persecuted by those who claim the mantle of tolerance.
Such is the fate of religious and economic liberty in the face of liberal fascism.
A husband-and-wife bakery shop team in Oregon were forced to close their shop doors and move to cheaper digs — their home — after gay-rights activists hounded them and drove away contract business because they refused for Christian reasons to bake for a same-sex wedding.
Aaron and Melissa Klein own and operate Sweet Cakes by Melissa. In the past few months, they’ve faced heated scrutiny — some in the form of physical threats — from those in the gay-rights crowd who decried their May refusal to bake for a lesbian couple who wanted to marry.
The Kleins cited their Christian beliefs of traditional marriage when they turned down that business gig, The Blaze reported. But the lesbian couple filed a complaint with the state, accusing the shop owners of discrimination.
Since, they’ve been hounded by vicious telephone calls and emails.
Some of those threats were shocking. One emailer wished for the couple’s children to fall ill. Another expressed hope that Mr. Klein should be shot and even raped, The Blaze reported.
And yet another wrote: “Here’s hoping you go out of business, you bigot.”
The couple said on top of that, their vendors were “badgered and harassed” into stopping all associations with the bakery.
The Kleins say they’re now closing up their doors and moving their operations to their home. Their business, they say, has suffered a serious revenue hit from the unexpected activism and backlash.
