Gorsuch Just Dropped The Ultimate
Wedding Cake Truth Bomb

Daily Caller, by Kevin Daily

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 12/7/2017 7:04:34 PM

(Video) Justice Neil Gorsuch finally told the truth about wedding cakes during a contentious argument about a Christian baker’s refusal to create a custom wedding cake for a gay couple planning their nuptials. Gorsuch admitted that wedding cakes just aren’t good. “In fact, I have yet to have a wedding cake that I would say tastes great,” he said, to laughter in the courtroom. (Snip) Gorsuch’s broader point was that some creation serves both utilitarian and speech interests. The primary purpose of cake is consumption, but it might also convey creative expression. This is true of other businesses involved in a wedding

Rush noted on his program today that the baker had offered to sell these people an off the shelf cake. The baker did not want to create a ´special´ cake for the event - i. e. work with them to make a cake that was an expression of their ´union´. Obviously for a ´regular´ wedding the baker would feel that his cake would be commemorating something sacred. Not so for a gay ´marriage´. I would not either, as a Baha´i, want to [in agreement with most other religious faiths] celebrate sinful behavior. This would not be an option for me. In the past I have refused printing t-shirts with dirty words. To me it is the same thing. By creating a special dirty word t-shirt or a cake for a sinful event one would be participating in and condoning the corruption.

Re #1, they didn’ t want one of his regular wedding cakes, which he was happy to sell them

They wanted a custom job - a special design that he’d be expected to execute for them. I can only imagine...

When I was a young prison Guard, I had to escort the inmates to church services. I had to go inside the chapel with them and watch that they behaved themselves. Now, I will not go into my particular and personal religion (Yes, many here may be surprised, but I do have a faith that is very deep in my soul). Some of the churches I had to enter, to me, were the same as walking into Satan´s living room. I absolutely detested entering those churches and listening to their "Priests" or "pastors" or otherwise ululate their gibberish nonsense. But, my job was to supervise those inmates. I stayed focused on that and nothing else. Yet, even so, afterward, each time I had to do that duty, I felt totally drained, and my inner conscience was in turmoil. What kind of faithful am I to my own beliefs if i violate my conscience like that. I had options. I did not have to keep that job! I could make a living doing other jobs. I could flat out refuse the duty and take the consequences. I did not. I kept on doing it. And to this day, I deeply regret it. I keep thinking about Nazi concentration camp guards, doing their duty- forcing people into death chambers, brutalizing them, - It was their duty also, wasn´t it? Their State would have shot them if they had followed their conscience and refused the duty. Our consciences are funny little things aren´t they? I only wish I had been as strong as this cake man is.I wish I had simply said, "No." Should the state take this man´s right to obey his conscience and simply say, "No."

#1 - If I were a T-shirt silk-screener, there´s no way I would design a T-shirt that said "Celebrate Pederasty" or "F*** Trump" or "Support ISIS" or "Happy Birthday Adolph Hitler." I don´t have to design a message I happen to abhor --- religion or no religion.

A wedding cake is a message. (C´mon. What is the first word in "wedding cake"?) I don´t hate the people who asked for this message, I am simply free to decline to be the messenger.

For any reason, or what you might call no reason at all: simply because it´s my labor.

It´s about choosing free enterprise, not involuntary servitude.

Some of this brings to mind the case of two New Jersey parents who had named their children "Adolf Hitler Campbell" and "Joycelynn Aryan Nation" and had their children taken away from them by the state after a store refused to decorate a birthday cake reading "Happy Birthday Adolf Hitler". The state insisted the children were removed after investigating claims of abuse. This happened in 2009. Does the refusal of the store to supply the cake in this instance infringe on someone´s rights or do some special groups have more rights than latter-day Nazi´s?

Millennials are proving themselves to be a giant recruiting headache for Dallas police and fire departments. Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall and Dallas Fire Chief David Coatney gave a pointed assessment of the generation Monday while discussing recruitment efforts before the city council, saying that shortages of police and firemen correlate with a millennial culture defined by impatience and unrealistic expectations. “We have nights, weekends and holidays — not attractive to millennials who want all days off and to be the chief in six months,” Ms. Hall said, a local Fox News affiliate reported Monday. “We recognize that is a challenge.” Chief Coatney

The Justice Department is refusing to reveal details of the process that led up to former FBI Director Robert Mueller being granted an ethics waiver to serve as special counsel investigating the Trump campaign´s alleged collusion with Russia during the 2016 presidential election. In response to a POLITICO Freedom of Information Act request, the agency released a one-sentence memo Friday confirming that Mueller was granted a conflict-of-interest waiver in order to assume the politically sensitive post. The waiver is believed to relate to Mueller´s work in recent years as a partner at the WilmerHale law firm, which also represented former Trump campaign

The House Natural Resources Committee has got Patagonia’s number. No, Patagonia is not the savior of America’s protected wild spaces. It’s just another greedster corporation with an overpriced logo, trying to make a fast buck by jumping on the anti-Trump bandwagon while parading its ‘eco’ credentials. According to the Hill: “The assertion that ‘the president stole your land’ is designed to mislead and terrify the uninformed. Their deception speaks volumes about their contempt for rural Americans in Utah,” the committee said in a statement. “Of course, Patagonia, a self-interested corporation like any other, knows the truth, but they don’t care.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) faced criticism for saying that President Donald Trump “slut-shamed” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) with a non-sexual insult, Tuesday. After President Donald Trump made a post on Twitter claiming that Sen. Gillibrand “would do anything” for campaign contributions, Sen. Warren made her own post accusing Trump of “slut-shaming.” “Are you really trying to bully, intimidate and slut-shame @SenGillibrand?” asked Sen. Warren in her post. “Do you know who you’re picking a fight with? Good luck with that, @realDonaldTrump.

Fox News put its credibility on the line when it released a new poll on Monday that shows liberal Democrat Doug Jones leads conservative Republican Roy Moore by 10 points, 50 percent to 40 percent, in tomorrow’s special election for the U.S. Senate in Alabama. The contrast between the results reported by Fox News and every other recent major poll could not be sharper. Earlier on Monday, an Emerson Poll was released that shows Moore up by nine points, 53 percent to 44 percent. The five other most recent polls featured in the Real Clear Politics Average of Polls all show Moore in

President Trump attacked Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) in a sexually suggestive tweet Tuesday morning that implied Gillibrand would do just about anything for money, prompting a swift and immediate backlash. “Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Charles E. Schumer and someone who would come to my office ´begging´ for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump,” the president wrote. “Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!”

PARIS — The United States may have withdrawn from the Paris climate change accord, but on Tuesday dozens of world leaders and philanthropists met to find solutions to the swiftly warming planet — and send a message of resolve to the White House. (Snip) Some new commitments were made. The World Bank, for instance, announced that it would stop financing projects that involved oil and gas exploration beginning in 2019. The “One Planet” summit will focus on practical ways to continue meeting climate goals without the participation of the U.S. government. So the main emphasis is on private financing for climate initiatives

The most effective way for the media to have refuted Donald Trump’s 24/7 accusations of “fake news” would have been to publish disinterested, factually based accounts of his presidency. The Trump record should have been set straight through logic and evidence. So one would think after a year of disseminating fake news aimed at Donald Trump (Melania Trump was leaving the White House; Donald Trump had removed the bust of Martin Luther King, Jr. from the West Wing; Trump planned to send troops into Mexico, etc.) that Washington and New York journalists would be especially scrupulous in their reporting to avoid

Leave it to Muslims to fight an actual War on Christmas. He chose the location because of its Christmas-themed posters, recalling strikes in Europe against Christmas markets, he told investigators, and set off the bomb in retaliation for U.S. airstrikes on Islamic State targets in Syria and elsewhere, several law enforcement officials said.

Roy Moore, the Republican candidate for Senate in Alabama, believes that the law comes directly from God.

The terror suspect who allegedly attempted to detonate a suicide-bomb in New York came to the United States from Bangladesh as a “chain migration” relative of an individual who had immigrated earlier into the United States. In October, President Donald Trump called for an end to this “chain migration” process in his immigration principles. On Monday 27-year-old Akayed Ullah, a Bangladesh national, injured three individuals when he allegedly tried to detonate a suicide bomb in New York City in a planned terrorist attack. Ullah, as confirmed by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), entered the U.S. in 2011 as a chain migrant. Under

And President Trump should resign his position.” She added, “Whether he will ever hold himself accountable is something you really can’t hold your breath for. And so, Congress should have hearings. They should do their investigation. They should have appropriate investigations of his behavior and hold him accountable.”

A press release from Brave New Films on Sunday said the women would relate their accounts of Trump’s alleged “groping, fondling, forcibly kissing, humiliating, and harassing women.” The White House has dismissed all of the accusations as lies.

Franken announced last Thursday that he would be resigning “in the coming weeks” after eight different women accused him of groping or forcibly kissing them. “The timing of Franken’s resignation remains unclear, as is his motive in delaying it,” New York Magazine’s Ed Kilgore noted at the time. Franken has yet to offer any more specificity about when he’s going to follow through in resigning. Franken’s office did not return multiple requests for comment on the subject. Franken begrudgingly offered his resignation after 35 Democratic senators called on him to do so, three weeks after he was first accused
