The same Progs who feel compelled to force Christian bakers, wedding photographers, and reception center owners to cater to same-sex couples on equal footing to conjugal heterosexual couples are thrilled when homosexual bakers refuse to put anti-gay messages on cakes. The lie from the Progs when it comes to wedding services is "nobody has to provide anything they don't normally provide, they just have to provide it to all comers equally."
But in the next breath the Progs demand that Christian pharmacists carry and sell the morning-after-pill even though the pharmacist has no desire to even have that product in his store. The Progs are simultaneously thrilled when drug companies refuse to sell drugs to the government for use in legal executions.
The Progs who are supposedly deeply worried about the supposedly excessive influence of Judeo-Christian religious beliefs in this country, have nary a problem with Islam. Indeed, the only time they express any real concern about Islam is by comparing every law they don't like to Islamic nations stoning gays or forcing women to wear burkas. Or they dredge up 500 year old history to claim Christianity does the same stuff Islam does. But apparently the belief system that is currently stoning gays, killing women for being raped, and forcing women to wear burkas is not a concern when it comes to admitting unlimited number of refugees.
The Progs can't even pretend to be self-consistent these days. Their goal is very simply to eliminate the influence of Judeo-Christian institutions and individuals from public discourse. Any and everything that might undermine that will be welcomed at least in the short term on the old military adage of "the enemy of my enemy is my friend."
And I think the reason is simple. Like the communists, socialists, and fascists with whom Progs share so much in common, the state/government must be the highest authority and have a monopoly on power. Heaven forbid (pun intended) that any material segment of society look beyond the unelected courts, or bureaucrats, or even elected politicians as the ultimate power. And never, ever, let the pheasants have the means to defend themselves or to threaten the government lock on force.
It is easy to understand why Obama has such disdain for those of us who cling to our Bibles and guns. Both the Bible and the guns represent limits on government power and authority.
Regardless of personal religious beliefs or lack thereof, it is a very short sighted gun owner who isn't as concerned about the attacks on religious freedoms as he is about attacks on RKBA. These represent two of the major fronts of assaulting freedom. Assaults on free speech (including both secular and religious speech) are another key front as Prog FEC members attempt to target non-Prog media. Control of healthcare is another key element. Control a man's access to medical care and you control him. Controlling commerce, including by eliminating cash and forcing all exchanges into trackable electronic transactions is yet another.
We hear of the culture war. Too many people don't realize that the Soviet Gulags, Nazi Concentration Camps, and Killing Fields of Southeast Asia, and the Re-education camps of Red China (among others) were and are the end result of culture wars in which one side can't fight back effectively. American Progs greatly desire such things here.
