Gays File Human Rights Complaint
Against Christian T-Shirt Maker

A Lexington, KY t-shirt company is under investigation by the city’s Human Rights Commission after they refused to print t-shirts for a local gay rights organization.

The owner of “Hands On Originals,” a well-known t-shirt company in the region, declined to print the shirts for the city’s Gay and Lesbian Services Organization (GLSO) because it would conflict with their Christian convictions.

The privately owned company is now accused of violating Lexington’s Fairness Act – which protects people and organizations from discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. Fox News Commentary

The view from the current legal philosophy that runs our country (and much of the so-called civilized world), is that this looks like an open and shut case of discrimination against a loving group of alternative lifestyle folks whose only desire is to educate (not discriminate).

In a broader view, the politics of "equality" at any cost have taken control. There now exists subjects we can't even talk about anymore for fear of recrimination, like the very real fact that those who engage in these sexually deviant lifestyles run a greater risk of disease and early death. And never mind that the idea of pushing ourselves to greater heights of morality and ethics may somehow help us to lead better lives -- both as individuals and as a society.

Hear that? That's the death knell for freedom in the United States. All hail civil rights! All hail the state -- our defining source of all that is good and fair for all people, regardless of practicality or common sense.

The unfortunate thing is that they will probably print the shirts to save the cost of the lawsuit. Justice goes to those with the most money.
