As soon as the question was altered slightly of a scenario of a black baker refusing to provide a cake for a Ku Klux Klan rally, the students said the baker shouldn’t be forced, but were obviously confused and understood they were contradicting themselves.
Granted, many of these students have never even thought about the issue except whatever they have been indoctrinated to think about freedom, the Christian religion, sodomy or marriage. However, their answers are telling as they comment on the recent ruling by the Supreme Court in the case involving Christian baker Jack Phillips refusal to bake a cake for two men engaged in crimes against nature, sodomy, and trying to pervert the definition of marriage.
Campus Reform provided the “student on the street” video footage from George Washington University.
Now, obviously the question was asked as if two men and two women could actually be “married” and they were not defined as criminals, the way the Bible, the states and our founders defined them, but as “gays.” That right there is the foundational issue here and as I’ve said time and again, if we dealt with the crimes against nature, namely sodomy, we wouldn’t be having a discussion about redefining marriage and bakers, florists and photographers denying services for such perversions.
Most of the students believed the baker should have been forced to bake a cake, even against his conscience, because “it’s his job,” as though people have a “right” to the services of another. They also expressed concern over discrimination without realizing they were discriminating against the baker’s conscience.
“If his job is to bake a cake for a wedding, even if he doesn’t agree with it, he should still have to do it,” said one student.
“His ability to exercise his freedom of religion ends when that infringes on another person’s ability to be who they are,” insisted another.
Still, another said, “The fact that our Supreme Court found that this was an okay thing, I find appalling.”
