Un-Constitutional Non-Sense

Hypocrisy

 

Republican Presidential candidate, Donald Trump, has a campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again”.  Well, he can pack his travel backs and go home to Trump Tower, because America IS great today!  The First Amendment of the American Constitution is safe and well protected!

Two Somali-American Muslim truck drivers have won a First Amendment religious freedom discrimination case against their former employer after they refused to transport a load of alcohol because it violated the principals of their religion.

And Abercrombie and Fitch lost a religious freedom discrimination case to a Muslim woman for firing her for not removing her hijab while on duty.

And an Oregon couple had their business heavily fined and effectively destroyed because they would not sell a wedding cake to a lesbian couple because it was against their Christian religious beliefs!

And a Kentucky clerk of court was jailed for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples because homosexuality is against her deeply held religious beliefs!

 

Wait…

 

What?

 

How can exercising one’s religious freedom and acting on one’s religious beliefs be lauded in some cases and reviled in others?  Either religious freedom is protected by the First Amendment or it is not.  It cannot be protection for only some selected individuals and not for others.

What is wrong with this picture?
