Anti discrimination laws are biased especially against christians, says anti-gay family values group
COLORADO SPRINGS -- In a newly released video from anti-gay group Focus on the Family’s political action affiliate, CitizenLink, Stuart Shepard, CitizenLink’s senior director of media says that Human Rights and anti-discrimination laws that are designed to protect minority classes against discrimination are actually discriminatory toward Christians.
Using a case about an Oregon bakery whose owners refused to provide a cake for a same-sex wedding, Shepard said;
“The Christian owners said they could not use their artistic ability to make a one-of-a-kind cake to celebrate something they do not support. The state pointed to the civil rights law that was amended a few years ago to include orientation and said the Christians lose. … The Oregon civil rights law also lists religion as a protected class, but activists are leveraging those laws to push Christians right out of business. When it’s a tie, the Christians lose.”
