The Supreme Court has sided with a Christian fascist businessman in Colorado who refused services to a gay couple, effectively enshrining discrimination against LGBT people. In the 7-2 decision, two liberal justices, while voicing disagreements, ultimately sided in favor of the supposedly “unfairly treated” bigot and delivered a result that utterly delighted Christian fascists – particularly the rabidly anti-LGBT Family Research Council.¹ Would you accept a business’ “right” to hang “whites only” or “Christians only” signs in their shops, as protected “freedom of religion” or expression of “philosophical objection”? Does this not pave the way for something like an expanded system of segregation, against anyone who is not white or Christian? This is an illegitimate ruling, and we do not and should not have to accept this.
The Trump/Pence Regime wants us degraded and vilified, they want to strip away recently-won civil rights and liberties, and ram LGBTQ people back into the closet… all while they demonize Muslims, round up and terrorize immigrants, deny women’s reproductive freedom, and threaten the world with nuclear annihilation and environmental catastrophe. We must instead courageously stand up in defiance of all this, not just for ourselves and our communities but for all of humanity and the planet itself. Boldly declaring in both word and deed – NO! In the Name of Humanity, We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America!
