In today’s political, anti-Christian climate, one expects the government to fine a Christian business owner into bankruptcy for declining to bake a “wedding” cake or take “wedding” photographs for two men.
As homosexuals, including the subset who pretend to be women, gain special rights over the rest, our freedoms of speech and of religion are weaker.
But no one expected this in PC America, where foreigners and law-breakers are better regarded than law-abiding citizens, and the constitutional right to keep and bear arms is controversial.
Last summer, Muslim terrorist Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez murdered five U.S. servicemen and wounded others in a shooting in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Shortly afterward, gun store owner Andy Hallinan declared his Florida store a “Muslim-Free Zone” and erected a sign.
One thing liberals can’t abide is Americans criticizing people of a certain religion who’re intent on killing “infidels” and imposing global Sharia. Encouraged by Americans who appear to be suicidal, a Muslim activist group sued Hallinan for discrimination.
But a federal judge did the unexpected. He dismissed the lawsuit against Hallinan on First Amendment grounds. From the Washington Times:
U.S. District Judge Beth Bloom ruled that Florida Gun Supply owner Andy Hallinan’s sign was protected by the First Amendment, and the activists couldn’t prove they were injured by the action, a local NBC affiliate reported.
The plaintiff, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) Florida, has 30 days to appeal the decision.
The suit had demanded an injunction against Florida Gun Supply to prohibit it from discriminating against Muslims and others on the basis of religion.
Hallinan doubled down on his constitutional rights. He’s now selling “jihadist” shooting targets.
