Mollie Hemingway: The Media's OOOOPSI System for Misreporting All the Left's Various "Outrages," and the Press' Open Hostility to Faith
— Ace

Big piece.

One of the cherished vanities of the media class is that they are sophisticated thinkers who see deeply into stories -- unlike brutish conservatives, whose primitive minds can only detect the crudest outlines of things.

Oh?


The media seems entirely unwilling to even confess the possibility that being dragooned into actual participation in a gay marriage might be fairly characterized as impinging on someone's religious faith.

The Washington Post has it all figured out:

Let's be honest: The media likes gays and hates religious people, and they're eager to frame their reportage based on these preferences.

And then they'll mock the religious for believing themselves to be under siege and attacked and demeaned by the media and other important transmitters of cultural power (including, firstly, the government).

They'll call them paranoid for believing such a crazy thing.

8 It is a willful ignorance. In one of the test cases for the gay wedding cakes things, the baker and the gay customer had had a long and friendly business relationship, where she sold him all types of cakes and cookies and such. She was just uncomfortable about being part of a wedding ceremony, so declined. I don't know what happened between then and the filing of the lawsuit, but it was not an out and out bigotry that motivated the baker.

I post on a physics forum sometimes and there are plenty of trolls who have to preface every post with, "I guess those stupid republicans were wrong about the Earth being 7,000 years old. Har Har Loosers!!!" Or some such childish gibberish. BTW Ace, thank you for mentioning that some of the greatest scientific minds of the 18th through 20th centuries were christian mystics.

21: "Millionaire Gay Couple Sues to Force Church Wedding"

 

I wonder if they will have to quit (officially) providing wedding services in churches just to avoid having to defile the ceremony for whatever alternative lifestyle comes along?

 

Perhaps Christians will have to hold secret ceremonies out in the woods like the old days.

60 Question. Most of the comments here refer to same sex male homosexual relationships. Yet, practically every wedding snippet on the news I am unfortunately subjected to seeing before I can change the channel are two lesbians. And it is the lesbians who seem to be the ones bringing the lawsuits. So is it fair to say the lesbians are the more militant branch of the gay mafia?

IF you get lefties to defend the word, the defense is usually that "homophobia" isn't being afraid of gays, but being afraid of your own inner conflict with your homosexuality.  In other words, if you object to overtly homosexual displays, you're gay and don't want to be.

Posted by: Jean at February 28, 2014 08:16 AM (4JkHl)

70 In one of the test cases for the gay wedding cakes things, the baker and the gay customer had had a long and friendly business relationship, where she sold him all types of cakes and cookies and such. She was just uncomfortable about being part of a wedding ceremony, so declined. Has anybody noticed who the bullies are? As I've pointed out, this isn't about serving someone in one's shop or selling one a product, but demands an intimate relationship that the vendor should be free to decline. We're really talking about involuntary servitude at this point. In addition, this shouldn't be "new" based on "gay marriage". The cake is served at the reception. In fact, nothing but the license is an essential part of the wedding anyway. "Commitment ceremonies" were big among gays for quite a while before the marriage thing was a thing. There was no difference other than a license. A wedding is just a party. That's its legal standing.

80 IF you get lefties to defend the word, the defense is usually that "homophobia" isn't being afraid of gays, but being afraid of your own inner conflict with your homosexuality. In other words, if you object to overtly homosexual displays, you're gay and don't want to be. Just because I don't care for rutabaga and don't eat it doesn't mean I'm afraid of it.

93 Here's what I glean: The Colorado baker (Jack Phillips) is being threatened with jail time. The Oregon bakery (Sweet Cakes by Melissa)closed its doors, and moved to at-home baking service. The New Mexico photographer (Elaine Huguenin) is apparently still in business as Elane Photography and is appealing the NM Supreme Court Ruling. (has petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court. I was conflating multiple cases.

Posted by: The Baker at February 28, 2014 08:21 AM (lq3Ak)

98 So, I have been giving some thought to the various aspects of this gay wedding thing, and I have come up with I think is the Biblical answer to the problem. Jesus said to love others. So, would Jesus have participated, even as remotely as baking a cake for a gay wedding? I don't know, but I do know that the number one provision of the Bible pages is not to sin. So, in our Biblically loving of others based in the Scriptures, we are told to love, but not to sin. There are Scriptural passages where we are told not to enquire about the background of stuff, namely food that has been offered to idols, but that if we are aware that the food has been offered to idols (btw: This is why halal meet is sinful, because it has been offered to what Christians consider an idol) we must not eat it. This is from the First Jerusalem Council. So how does this translate into gay marriages? If we, supposing we were a baker, were approached by someone and asked to bake their wedding cake, if we are not aware that it is to be used for what we Christians consider a sinful lifestyle, we should go ahead and do it, but if we are told that it is for a gay wedding, we must not. If, by our actions, or lack of them, we cause someone to sin, we have violated our Christian precepts and must repent. The 'love of others' that I hear bandied about everywhere does not trump the Bible's #1 requirement not to sin. Hope this helps!

99 Yet, practically every wedding snippet on the news I am unfortunately subjected to seeing before I can change the channel are two lesbians. And it is the lesbians who seem to be the ones bringing the lawsuits. So is it fair to say the lesbians are the more militant branch of the gay mafia? Posted by: Jen at February 28, 2014 01:14 PM (XkXzn) No, they're the ones who get married. In the 70s and 80s, when there was talk of gay marriage, it was quashed by gays themselves (the term we would use today is "heteronormative") but mostly from gay men. Famously, Harvey Milk was deadset against the idea. Then AIDS happened.

That's up there with "Why are so many folks in prison when crime rates are dropping?"

185 According to advocates, religious freedom may be under attack in Hutchinson, Kansas. There’s a controversial ordinance being considered in the local community that would force churches to host gay weddings and parties. According to Fox News’ Todd Starnes, the Hutchinson City Council is going to consider whether sexual orientation and gender identity should be added to the city’s human relations code. If this action is approved during next month’s expected vote, churches may find themselves in a tough position. Hutchinson Human Relations Commission has explained that, under the new regulations, churches that make their buildings available for the general public would not be able to refuse gay couples. This essentially means that churches would be forced to, via rental agreements, support gay nuptials. april 23 2012 blaze. also at fox news same year. so rental of building will be the 'thing' used? so those that have drug and alcohol meeting at their place would count or those that rent out for scouts etc? if any money passes hands or just used as anything other than church, shul, temple, or what have you?

Posted by: Lauren at February 28, 2014 01:19 PM (hFL/3) A "fine" or a lawsuit is serious. How many $50 fines would it take to fine a small business, like a bakery out of existence? Which the militant gays and their leftist friends would do in a heartbeat. Simply pile on like they tried (and were successful at) against Sarah Palin when she was Gov. Sarah didn't lose a single one of the lawsuits run against her, but she had to pay to defend herself against each and every one. She left the Gov. so that the state of Alaska, which has a law requiring the state to cover her defense costs, wouldn't have to pay. She ended up paying out of pocket, I think it was somewhere in the million dollar mark. (One reason she started doing the books, the Alaska television series, etc.) Defending against a single lawsuit can run into the tens of thousands of dollars and insurance doesn't always cover you. If you know that the law requires you to do something, and you blatantly refuse to do it, your liability insurance will simply say sorry, we're not covering something you knowingly and willingly violated.

253 Much of the less is very simplistic in their thinking because they don't want to understand religious conservatives and don't want to. Take the statement, "You hate gays" because you have some reservations about gay marriage." Well, no I don't actually "hate" gays anymore than I "hate" heterosexual people. I generally don't think of people in large groups except that I'm quite leery of leftists at the moment. I know some people who happen to be gay whom I love very much and who I see on a regular basis. There are also some people who happen to be gay whom I really don't like a whole lot (It's difficult to like people who tell you that they hope your son grows up to be a male prostitute or that they would run over you if it weren't illegal because you disagree with some of their political points of view) So, even though I have friends who happen to be gay or have had a friend who happens to be a gay clergyman officiate at my son's baptism I must hate gays because I think the marriage business should be taken out of the governments hands entirely. So yes, they would not be able to understand someone who can have a perfectly good business relationship with someone but might choose not to make a wedding cake because they think marriage should be between a man and a woman.

We've got 20 centuries of this stuff so bring it on. Rome first century, Imperial France, Spain, Mexico of the early 1920's. In commie Spain, did you know that priests would hear confessions in public places such as the zoo in order to fool the authorities? Christ himself tells us that we'll be persecuted and killed just as He was... Bring it on, I say.

258 Maybe the day will come when churches will have to stop solemnizing weddings for the state--simply pull out of the wedding business. They could still do religious ceremonies for members but that would have nothing to do with the legal side of marriage.

Go down to the local politburo and pay hundreds of dollars for a license to have someone in a military uniform ask us if we are loyal to the state and will raise our children to be loyal to the state. Then we will be married and get our books on being good communists. Then we will go to the coffee shop and have a pastry and coffee before we go back to work. For the state.

Interesting factoid:  In 1936, the Spanish leftists (labeled "Republicans" by some accident of history) killed more priests, monks and nuns than the total number of people killed by the Spanish Inquisition during its entire 400 year history.

262 Roman Catholicism has marriage as one of the 7 sacraments. Just like baptism and confirmation. It is simply impossible for the RC Church to "get out of the marriage biz". This is a matter of sanctification of the union between man and woman thru the Holy Spirit. Christ himself speaks on the sanctity of marriage and family.

Posted by: havildar - major at February 28, 2014 08:57 AM (kduZC)

263 As it all unfolds, the matter comes down to one group of people asserting their wills over another. The word Leftist misses the mark. What the Soviet Union was is closer to what the statist elites desire. Total control. Allegiance to their desires. We would do well to stick together, those of us who desire individual liberty.

He either believes that freedom of religion is absolute, even when it conflicts with his personal feelings, or he doesn't.  Two adults entering a legal contract?  Go for it.  Forcing churches to violate their core tenants to appease a protected species?  Go fuck yourself. 

 

"Gabe, given the lawsuit filed against a church for refusing to perform a gay marriage ceremony, do you believe the state has (or should have) the power to compel a religious organization to violate their beliefs?  Feel free to expound on your answer, but please open with either a 'yes' or a 'no'."

269 Getting the gov. out of the marriage business sounds lovely, but one needs to realize the ramifications of such a move. The gov. is involved because it is what makes laws concerning the family. Laws covering marital assets, inheritance, divorce, child support, alimony etc. have all been developed over the centuries because of a need to provide for minor children and for most of that time, for women who had no other means of income or shelter. (check out what happens to women in Afghanistan, etc. who have no outside work and their husband is killed....) I know many of you say, well, go to a lawyer before you are married and get a contract drawn up. You still have to have laws on the books that support of deny claims made against a contract. And for the "poor" who wish to get married. Gee, I guess the state would have to cover some kind of contract for them. Wait, don't we have that already, called "family law"? Do we really want to throw all of that out so that we can get the "government" out of the marriage business?

Posted by: FenelonSpoke at February 28, 2014 02:07 PM (XyM/Y) Don't do it and then be prepared to fight the consequences. Does everyone really think that if tomorrow, your state government(remember, it is the state, not the Feds, who license marriages) said it would no longer provide licensing for marriages, that suddenly there would be no lawsuits from gay couples, polygamy couples, underage couples, etc. demanding 1. a lawyer draw up a contract covering them, 2. baker bake them a cake 3. photographer, etc. NO, because we still have myriad rules, laws, and regulations broadly proscribing that discrimination is illegal and punishable at both the state and federal level and the left will avail itself to make everyone fall in line. This is what many of us have been saying about gay marriage. It is not about marriage, it is about demanding that the rest of society accept, participate, and approve of everything they do. They want to be the same as everyone else, yet held up as really special. And as statists, they will use whatever means necessary to force the rest of us to bend to their will.

The Hemingway article is great! I honestly did not know that the federal RFRA was a response to the Indian peyote decision by the Supreme Court.  I only vaguely remember that.  Would be very good for Republicans discussing this to remind people that Chuck Schumer was an original sponsor of RFRA.

 

So, I have a dumb question, does any state really need to legislate on this?  Can't anyone invoke the federal RFRA as a defense, even in a state anti-discrimination suit?

280 I can't find criminal penalties under the OEA (2007). I did find civil remedies in Oregon for this type of alleged (well, now found to be) discrimination. In nick. If the baker is facing criminal penalties the articles about the baker are hiding the ball quite well. Some tantalizingly mention "charges," no details though. @245 Did you really get that off a pillow or is it mentioned in relation to Oregon law? Where?

281 Oh, yes that's the Anglican Church. That's a bit different, I suppose because technically it's a state church. One of the men commented, "I can't have my perfect wedding". Perhaps he had some religious feeling behind it but the sense I got was that he wanted the beautiful little church setting. I don't want to marry people who happen to be straight who have no connection with the church or any church and who aren't Christian who waited until a month before their service and then just called the church because they heard how lovely it was.

Marriage redefinition (this is the only accurate term for this topic) really showcases the degradation and collapse of the country.  No,  I do not refer to the issue of marriage redefinition itself - that is ultimately a cultural question, to which I am supremely indifferent.

 

I refer to the collapse of the rule of law.  Look at the idiocy and histrionics of the district judge in the Prop 8 decision.  See also the similar nonsense (with Kennedy, as often, standing out for his arrogance and cluelessness) from SCOTUS.  And of course the sweet, sweet "standing" shell game.  And these absurd, Soviet-like bakery/florist cases.

 

Bigotry, arrogance, lawlessness have successfully hijacked the country.  Those qualities are on full, destructive display in the marriage redefinition case.  The crude, Third World-like thuggery and lawlessness are of course on prominent display in other areas - amnesty and immigration lawlessness, mau-mau'ing bank executives or oil executives, race-baiting by the "president", expropriating senior debt-holders of GM/Chrysler, etc.  But they're all of a piece.

 

So yes, those who go along with the absurd lawlessness and bigotry of the marriage redefinition juggernaut are just as un-American, pernicious, and beneath contempt as the vermin behind all these other disgraceful situations.

285 thanks to the spineless fake conservatives (some notable members of this site) we got to this point. Funny how Ace and his supporters/likeminded thought that nothing would have happened when they approved the lighter in the hands of a pyromaniac. You get the arson you deserve. At least don't pretend to be surprised. You willingly coddled to a nasty portion of the leftist electorate because you wanted to sound enlightened and sophisticated, now do not cry that they have subverted common sense. There could be a relevant pushback, but not if conservatives do not stick together. The emperor has no clothes. All it took was a child pointing that out. We are surrounded by sheeps bowing their heads to the master. If there are children willing to point out that the emperor is naked, they are silenced by the very people who here, complain, astonished that freedom of conscience is now a thing of the past. Too little too late.

286 Did you really get that off a pillow or is it mentioned in relation to Oregon law? Where? Posted by: Beagle at February 28, 2014 02:25 PM (sOtz/) Beagle, it was a joke based in reality. Oregon has civil rights laws that prohibit discriminating public services based on sexual orientation. See the following from the Oregon.gov site. Discrimination in Public Accommodation A place of public accommodation is defined in state law as any place that offers the public accommodations, advantages, facilities or privileges, whether in the nature of goods, services, lodging, amusements or otherwise. It is illegal to discriminate in places of public accommodation on the basis of race, sex (including pregnancy), sexual orientation, national origin, religion, marital status, physical or mental disability, or age (18 years of age and older). So what you have is a state law that might be in opposition to Federal law via the Constitution, Art. 1 Of course , that is the same argument the same sex marriage proponents use, citing the 14th amendment. But how will one defend themselves against this, save taking the appeal on to the federal level , then trying to have it reviewed by the Supreme Court? One needs deep pockets or needs to be a test case for an interested deep pocketed legal group. Apparently the ACLU wasn't interested in this case, and the baker simply closed their public presence and went to a home based bakery. Which apparently isn't covered by this law...yet.

289 fromabroad, great post.

Appreciate your comments, some of the only ones that make sense here.

I warned these morons for years on various sites where so called "conservatives" kept refusing to see what was coming. At least Russia is acting decisively, no matter what anyone thinks of the specifics. Now in America we have totally in tank media that punishes any dissenting view on any homosexual topic as hate speech. Even the NFL and other sports leagues are falling for it.

With the help of certain libertarians and mod GOPers and such, sane people that just want to be left alone even are finding what they get in return for playing nice.

Leftists want this agenda on child friendly TV channels even. Look at the Fine Bros popular YouTube vids with kids speaking out, where they edit and try to get young kids to accept "gay marriage" etc. and to speak like progressive parrots. Proggies want it literally taught in schools, to ensure future generations accept homosexuality as being super-normal. With sensitivity training, too.

Yet go to Hedgehog Report and the mod repubs there will tell you "we need to stop talking about social issues, so we can win more elections" etc.

We got into this mess by NOT fighting full throat the cultural war 24-7 in all arenas. We did not lose by having so-cons; we lost by not staying united with messaged against this crap and the plans of the left exposed and attacked. We lost by not taking things as seriously and without compromise as Russia did over the homosexual propaganda to children being knocked cold. Once it infects, it's too late. And the US press of course only calls such measures, as they call the AZ bill, "anti-gay" instead of pro-leave us alone and even live and let live!

Is this the type of de facto speech codes you want to live under? Still blaming so-cons over it? Still trying to be libertarian or a moderate when the other side is coming for your kids, your soul your remote control 24-7 without compromise or apology and with zeal?

You were warned, Ace.
