Colorado is next

Get a load of this.

What my beautiful country is coming to....

Colorado Governor Signs Heinous “Sexual Orientation” Senate Bill 200
In the public debate for the biblical institution of marriage, the right to life, biomedical ethics, or any of the “life and death” policy issues which confront the freedom of this nation and the peace of the church—we must make arguments from principle! It is the tactic of the enemies of Christianity to appeal to emotions, intimidation, misrepresentations, pragmatism, utilitarianism, and relativistic ethics when undermining the influence of the moral law of God as applied to the state.

Now comes Colorado State Senate Bill 200—one of the worst pieces of legislation to be enacted by a state in years. It was sponsored by the only openly lesbian member of the Colorado Senate. It establishes the equivalent of a star chamber proceeding that could be a source of great persecution to any business or group that opposes homosexuality. The radical measures adopted by Colorado are justified on the grounds that they are necessary for “the immediate preservation of the public peace, health, and safety.”

The bill states:

SECTION 8. 24-34-701. Publishing of discriminative matter forbidden. No person, being the owner, lessee, proprietor, manager, superintendent, agent, or employee of any place of public accommodation... shall publish, issue, circulate, send, distribute, give away, or display in any way, manner, or shape or by any means or method, except as provided in this section, any communication, paper, poster, folder, manuscript, book, pamphlet, writing, print, letter, notice, or advertisement of any kind, nature, or description THAT is intended or calculated to discriminate or actually discriminates against... SEXUAL ORIENTATION, marital status... in the matter of furnishing or neglecting or refusing to furnish to them or any one of them any lodging, housing, schooling, or tuition or any accommodation, right [marriage], privilege [adoption], advantage, or convenience... on account of... SEXUAL ORIENTATION, marital status... [which] is unwelcome or objectionable or not acceptable, desired, or solicited.

Ross Kaminsky of Human Events explains:

To ensure that the most aggressive “gay rights” agenda is pursued, the law creates a seven member “Colorado civil rights commission” with “at least four members who are members of groups of people who have been or who might be discriminated against because of disability, race, creed, color, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, ancestry, or because of marital status, religion, or age.” These commissioners will “receive a per diem allowance and shall be reimbursed for actual and necessary expenses...” In other words, Colorado taxpayers will pay “victim group” activists, modern-day inquisitors, to scour the state for citizens and businesses to sue.

*groan* The insanity, the injustice, the idiocy of the bill is truly sickening...If that bill is not an attempt to take away the rights of every American citizen (starting in CO, as it happens), I don't know what is! Why are these lunatics allowed to stay in office?!

God help us! Raise us up champions!

Gonna have to kill me first too. Maybe they'll end up killing me because of this legislation...because I'm not going to shut up.

I like your mention of the star chamber. It is only those who know how these things went in the past that can see how it will go in the future.

It is really important to realize that these people are really fighting against God. One of us plus God is a majority over the other 6.6 billion people in the world. Stand firm and don't be intimidated because we will win!

But be patient because victory probably will not come in the time frame that we would like.
