Religious Freedom vs. Jim Crow

A really good way to anger me is to compare Jim Crow laws to the Religious Freedom Laws. First of all, the fact that these laws are deemed necessary at all shows the hypocrisy of those crying out for tolerance. However, allowing a couple to buy whatever they want until they ask you to do something you don’t want to participate in is nothing like Jim Crow. 

Black people, unless light enough to pass for white, could not hide their blackness and still cannot. Comparing this to two men who walk into a bakery is ludicrous. They only way you can tell if they are gay is if they actually advertise it. No one cares if they buy food, but if they ask for a wedding cake that the baker doesn’t feel comfortable making, they should not be able to force the baker to bake the cake. 

Comparing this situation to Jim Crow is absurd and offensive. There is a difference between not being about to get a sandwich at a restaurant because of skin color and not getting a cake because the baker doesn’t support the event it is for. Throwing around Jim Crow as a comparison is offensive to the history of my biological ancestors in this country. 

The real solution to this absurd insanity would be to get marriage out of the hands of the government and making it religious like it used to be. The government should not dictate marriage at all. It should be a private contract. However we have become too socially Marxist to accept this, and the federal government has become our god. Hopefully we can take our liberty back, and rely on the first amendment which should be enough to defend our small businesses and all religions. 

God Bless America.
