Our Founding Fathers were pretty bright.
We can take comfort knowing that the principles laid out in the U.S. Constitution will ultimately win out. By focusing on checks and balances, the Founders knew that if one branch acts out of line and trampling on Americans’ rights, then another branch has the power to stop them.
Unfortunately, we still have to deal with nonsense and corruption from the Left, which has infected every branch of Government. Time, money and effort is wasted. But at least we know that truth will win out at the close of the day.
The Blaze reports on a big win for conservatives today:
A ruling in favor of a California baker who refused to design a wedding cake for a gay couple produced a potentially significant distinction that could impact future similar cases.
Kern County Judge David Lampe ruled that the state could not force Cathy Miller, owner of Tastries Bakery, to bake a cake that would go against her beliefs, according to Kern Golden Empire.
“For this court to force such compliance would do violence to the essentials of Free Speech guaranteed under the First Amendment,” the judge said in the ruling.
Miller attempted to help the same-sex couple and point them in another direction to have their wishes fulfilled, but that wasn’t good enough. At least the judge was on her side.
The judge also noted that Miller recommended the couple go to a competitor to get their cake.
“Furthermore, here the State minimizes the fact that Miller has provided for an alternative means for potential customers to receive the product they desire through the services of another talent. The fact that Rodriguez-Del Rios (the couple) feel they will suffer indignity from Miller’s choice is not sufficient to deny constitutional protection,” the judge wrote.
The couple insisted that Miller was discriminating against them, and all hell broke loose when they hired an attorney.
Miller has had to deal with an unfathomable amount of nonsense ever since, but she has been vindicated – at least for the time being.
Unsurprisingly, the couple’s attorney still isn’t willing to let it go.
“This is only the beginning. It is just one battle in the war against discrimination,” the couple’s attorney said.
That’s an interesting choice of phrase from the attorney. When someone doesn’t agree with another, it amounts to ‘war.’
It’s another sad commentary on the current state of affairs. The so-called culture war is approaching a boiling point, and it’s leaving irreparable damage to our nation as a whole in its wake.
We can take solace in the fact that the Constitution will win out in the long run, but the venerable document is taking a serious bruising along the way.
