Ruling on Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission


Well, it took many years, but the Supreme Court has ruled on the Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission case. Though they didn’t exactly rule in such a way that either side won.

Well not exactly anyways, the ruling was simply that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission case was more like a dismissal that favored the baker. And from what I can find, it was because of the comments of a judge in one of the lower courts in Colorado. However this ruling was enough which allowed the baker to win the case and be free from baking the cake.

Personally, I adamantly disagree at the idea Bible says anything negative against a loving relationship (marriage) between two consenting adults. It clearly does not and requires a huge amount of manipulation of what the Bible actually does say to get it to be against gays. However, I do think that the Supreme Court should have given us a more clear verdict. Where it makes it clear, that you cannot force a religious person to act against their religious beliefs.

This whole case was nothing more than a joke in my opinion. The gay couple simply could have just gone to another Bakery and have the cake made by a baker who is willing to take money. This is part of how capitalism works. Not to mention, this was not exactly a small town with only one Baker.

Also, the thing that people fail to understand in this case, is that this business was a private business, not a corporation. This means they actually do not serve the public, they serve those they choose. Those in their private transaction, that’s it. I would think the word private, private business would make this pretty clear. So they are not required to serve everyone, violating the religious rights and right to free expression.

This is why we cannot go into Jewish kosher deli and order bacon. Or demand a Islamic halal meat shop do the same. You cannot force the owners of a private shop to violate their religion because someone demands they do. Private entities are not slaves, and thus have the right to refuse service and lose out on money in the process.

However despite him not being a slave, that is exactly how the Colorado Civil Rights Commission was treating him. Ruling that the was no longer allowed to make any wedding cakes, while forcing Jack, the bakery owner, to provide for his employees, gay-friendly reeducation.

He was literally being forced by the Civil Rights Commission, due to two LGBQ+SubtractThe5 bullies, to violate his religious beliefs. He was the one ultimately being discriminated in this case. A religious man who had been equally baking cakes for gay people just like he did straight people. Birthday cakes, rainbow cakes (Yes Christians like rainbows, so he’s making the same kind of cake for gays) etc… However, he just refuse to make a particular cake that was not on his list of cakes that he makes due to his religious beliefs.

This man is being forced to say something that he doesn’t want to say in the form of his artistic expression (cakes). This is wrong, unethical, unjust and unconstitutional.

Seeking to Destroy Others. Enough is Enough.


Why is it those with different political views are looking to destroy people’s lives, just to score political points?

Roseanne was cancelled recently after she said posted tweet. Although it was bad, it was not really as horrible as people are making it out to be. Something I blogged about a few days ago. Now the right is going after Samantha Bee for saying something stupid as well, wanting her to be cancelled. As well, to make a point about the left’s hypocrisy.

Both sides are willing to destroy the lives of individuals, who just simply said something really stupid. All to score political points for their own side. And it’s not just something that affect the individual who says something stupid. It also affects those who work alongside them. From their fellow actors and actresses, to the cameraman and janitors, who find themselves losing their job and struggling to feed their families when the show is shut down and their services are no longer needed.

Why are people looking to destroy others lives just to get one up on the other? I’m doubtful there are many people who have not said anything in their past that they regret. And I doubt they won’t ever do it again. I’m guilty of it and I probably will do it again in the future. As humans, we say and do stupid things from time to time, things that we regret saying. We shouldn’t have our jobs threatened and lose our ability to support our families, due to that rare occasions mess up.

Yet, all these people are jumping over each other just the score political points for their own side. Sacrificing other people to do so. What has our society become? How is anyone okay with this?

Enough is enough…..

Let Our Works Speak To The Unbelievers


As a Christian, I know what it is like to be attack by non believes. I had some very hateful things said about me and what I believe. I have even had people attack my family for simply being a Christian and not necessarily anything I specifically believe. It does come with the territory.

However, it would seem that many who are calling themselves a Christian, feel that it is perfectly acceptable to behave just as the non believers who are attacking them do. Saying hateful in Vile thing in return. Some may even say it to a non-believer who is behaving civilized with them, because of what others have done to them previously.

This is not how Christians are to act. We are to “Abstain from all appearance of evil.” (1 Thessalonians 5:22) and we are not doing that when we are calling people names, launching personal attacks, being prideful, arrogant or putting others down.

One of the greatest Commandments we have is to love our neighbor. And really, how can we say we love our neighbor when are treating the non-believer so horribly? When our actions make it look like we hate them?

Sure, the non-believer may be hateful and vile towards us in his or her attempt to destroy us. However, the Bible does not tell is to follow all the rules, except when attacked by a atheist or muslim who is trying to hurt our feelings. We are to always be humble, patience, meekness, not prideful, be gentle with perfect courtesy toward all people. Because, we are to , “Keep your conduct among the Gentiles honorable, so that when they speak against us as evildoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation.” (1 Peter 2:12)

We are to use their attempts to destroy us, to being them to the Lord. Just as David did when his enemies had been spreading lies,and being deceitful. In the end, we need to trust God, “When you’re under attack, take refuge in the Lord as your righteous defender.” (Psalm 5:1-7)

Sadly, when many Christians are confronted on their unchristian like behavior/actions. I have found that very few change what they are doing. Either giving excuses as to why they can do what they are doing, ignoring the Bible. Or they claim I am not a Christian, because to them, a Christian does not call out other Christians for what they are doing. Therefore, because they deem me as not a christian, they feel that it gives them an excuse to continue with the unchristian-like behavior. No I’m completely unaware of any Scripture that says that, even if somebody is not Christian they can not point out unchristian-like behaviors and actions.

In many ways, I understand such people. When I was a new Christian, I had a hard time with this. I would fight back giving just as much if not more then what I was given. I said some horrible things to people as a reaction to what they are sub to me. I had a hard time being kind to those who are not doing so with me. It’s just taking me a long time to get where I am today. Even after all these years, I still find that I must pull myself aside and remind myself of how I should interact with others, others who I’m not exactly the nicest people towards me.

We must remember that our works are an indication of our faith. If we don’t act like we believe what we profess to believe, then why would a non-believer even take a serious? Why would they even consider what we have to say?

We must also ask ourselves, our we bringing glory to God with the things we say and do? Is our behaviors and actions resulting in a seed being planted? Or is wedge being driven in? Which do you think is more productive?

Explaining to Creationist, What Evolution Really is.


It is kind of odd that I find myself writing with the intent to teach people about evolution. It would seem very few people actually know what evolution is. And there are a lot of reasons for this.

One big reason is that textbooks do a really poor job at explaining evolution, most actually get it wrong. Even the teachers at grade schools and high schools often don’t understand what evolution is. So they end up teaching a faulty version of evolution. Most often, they say it is one animal turning into another. Even the textbooks in schools are often incorrect, mainly because the people writing them don’t know what evolution is let alone how to describe it. Then you even have those who reject evolution writing the textbooks and putting their own false version of it down in print. Only to end up being taught to children.
So what is evolution? In the most simplistic way possible to describe it, it is change. Nothing magical or extraordinary about it.
Nothing actually ends up turning into something else. Instead, it’s just a variation of what it once was, even if it looks vastly different than its ancestor. A good way to think about it is if you take a piece of clay and mold it into something. It’s still clay no matter what shape you make it.
Another example is the termite. The termite simply is a variation of a wood eating cockroach. It’s a social wood eating cockroach. It didn’t stop being a cockroach when it evolved, because it’s still a cockroach, just a variation of them.
Even humans are just variations of our ancestors. All of us are still eukaryote, unikonts and opisthokonts, despite how we look so vastly different. Just as we are still primates and mammals. When we say ‘Homo sapiens’, it is just a name for specific type of variation of our ancestors.
Again, there is nothing magical or special about it. One organism does not turn into another completely different type of organism, that because does not outgrow its ancestry.

Epic SJW gender bull.


There was a time people were offended when some woman breastfed in the sight of others. Some people thought it was sick and disgusting, but others for some reason thought it was a sexual act. And of course both women and men had to point out that it was natural and necessary for the child

Now here comes the social justice warriors (SJW) on their Crusade to tell people how to live and think. Not to mention just plain old reveal their stupidity to the world and remind the rest of us why exactly we don’t like SJW’s again.
Jessica Martucci had released this study in Pediatrics, saying that it is “ethically inappropriate”  as it is reinforces gender roles. Thus they do not want medical organizations such as the American Academy of Pediatrics to call breastfeeding natural.
When I first heard about this I thought it had to be satire. Boy was I wrong, this was actually was real and it was meant to be to be taken serious.
With that said, there just so many things to say about this. The first thing I must do is ask why? It’s like this women was looking for a issue to complain about because all the SJW bull had been debunked like the rape culture, gender pay gap, etc… So she decided to invent a new issue. A issue nobody was ever even complaining about, but now I suspect I we will ad nauseam.
Next, I do find it odd, because what’s the one thing we hear from SJW trying to normalize a mental illness? That gender is different from sex. Now here this SJW destroying that. Showing that previous arguments where the bull we thought it was.

I also must ask, if we we can’t call something that is natural, natural. Then what are we to call it?

Seriously,  Martucci wants us to ignore reality, as to not offend someone believes there’s something that they are not. Appeasing their mental illness. What’s next? not installing the toilet in new homes because it might offend somebody who believes they are a cat?


“As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” (Joshua 24:15).

Being fruitful and multiplying is not all that God wanted us men to do. God wanted us to actually get involved and raise our children and not just get the willy wet and leave. God tells us in Proverbs 22:6 to “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.”

It’s our duty to raise our children in a godly way. If we don’t and sit on our but all day, leaving them to raise them self and they go artsy. We can’t blame anyone, but our selves.

Yes, having children is a huge responsibility for us. However, just because they are a responsibility and take time out of our day, does not mean the are a hardship in are life. No, They are to be a privilege that we have been granted. Psalm 127:3-5 makes that clean, “Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!”

As fathers, we should be spending a great deal of our time teaching our kids about God and his teachings. Trying to find ways to inject God into any activity we are engaged in with our children. Doing some garden work, Talk about Genesis and the beauty of Gods creation. Building a shelf, tell them about how Jesus was a carpenter and why He chose to be a carpenter, where he worked with his hands.

Use your time with them to teach them about God. Sure, not everyone is a bible scholar, but it’s not hard to inject a lesson into it. If you know your going to do something with them tomorrow, then after you put them to sleep, use that time to do research on a lesson you can apply to what you will be doing the following day.
