Kimberly Morin reports over the past 8 years, Freedom of Religion and Freedom of Speech have been two areas the Obama Administration has trampled over on a regular basis.
From college campuses forcing ‘Free Speech Zones,’ to government forcing religious organizations to throw aside their Freedom of Religion in the name of birth control, the Obama Administration and the Left have been steadily trampling over people due to their bigotry and hatred for Christianity.
Justice Alito spoke at an event recently and talked about these issues as well as the growth and power of federal agencies. From The Daily Caller:
Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito warned that the three most consequential issues facing the Court are free speech, religious liberty and federal agency power.
Alito delivered the opening address at a conference of judicial conservatives and libertarians Thursday. He made the remarks in Washington in connection with a memoriam address honoring the late Justice Antonin Scalia at the Federalist Society’s annual lawyers’ convention.
The justice began his parenthetical by noting the growing chasm on free speech issues, particularly on college campuses and in the campaign finance area. He singled out the “new orthodoxy” in the American academy, and wondered aloud how college students or faculty would react to a peer wearing a piece of apparel declaring America “a great and good nation,” in what appeared to be a veiled reference to President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again.”
Anyone who has been paying attention for the past several years has noticed the horrifying way in which Christians are being persecuted by the government. The Christian Bakery that ended up going out of business for refusing to bake a cake for a gay wedding; Hobby Lobby for refusing to provide abortifacient birth control (even though they provide 16 other types of birth control for employees); Little Sisters of the Poor for refusing to provide any birth control at all; and there’s also Catholic Charities of Massachusetts who left the state because Democrats were going to force them to give children to gay couples for adoption.
All of these things are absolute infringements upon the religious freedom of Americans but the Left doesn’t care. They WANT to infringe upon the rights of Christians because they are bigoted and hateful people. You’ll notice that no gay couples ever try to force Muslim or Jewish bakers to bake cakes for gay weddings. Why? Because the result would be the same – NO, we can’t do that because it’s against our religious beliefs.
College campuses have become nothing but daycare for toddlers who need safe spaces because someone dared to disagree with them. ‘Free Speech Zones’ have become the norm because the Left abhors free speech. The Left abhors dissent and the colleges go right along with it because they don’t have the cajones to stand up for the freedom of their students. Either that, or they are part of the ANTI-free speech cabal, like at the University of New Hampshire.
There are Supreme Court rulings against publicly-funded colleges and universities and their free speech zones, but many colleges have chosen to ignore these rulings and continue to violate the 1st Amendment rights of their students, unless the students are Left-wingers. Those students seem to be free to do whatever they want on these college campuses from Left-wing hell.
Now, more than ever, it’s important to get the country back on the right track. The track of liberty and freedom, where the Constitution and the rights that are protected by the government (not GIVEN by the government) are actually protected again.
