Utah Senator Mike Lee, along with Ted Cruz plan to re-introduce a law, that didn’t go anywhere under the Obama administration.
This law called the First Amendment Defense Act (FADA) will forbid the federal government from taking “discriminatory action” on any business or person that chooses to discriminate against LGBTQ people. (via NBC News)
At first glance this law looks bad, but in essence it is not. It will allow business owners to decide for themselves to give service or not to give service to anyone they wish. So if they feel awkward with making a cake for a gay wedding, then they will not be forced to do it.
With the FEDA, individuals and businesses can sue the federal government for stepping on their rights to discriminate against LGBTQ members.
The constitution does not break the rights of homosexuals in the U.S., but it lets the people choose whether they want to serve them or not, and not worry in the process whether they will be sued.
However, progressives will fight this tooth and nail using their same old pointless argument: that it steps on someone’s rights. Obviously, the rights of every Christian person is less than the rights of every other class of citizens.
A lot of conservatives notice how FADA is right, this does not make one homophobic, as liberals try to portrait us. If a business refuses to bake a wedding cake, then they have the right to refuse doing it, no reason needed. It is wrong to entice people or businesses to do what they do not want to do.
