Cartoon represented shop owners incorrectly
Something that really gets my heart pumping is watching someone make a speech or statement on TV and then see the networks and newspapers write a story that is definitely not what was said and turn it into a negative to promote whatever side they are supporting.
I am afraid that is exactly what you published in The Examiner with the political cartoon titled “Intolerance Street USA” June 28. On the right side of the cartoon is a shop with a window poster saying “No GOP deplorables referring to the restaurant Red Hen kicking out Sarah Sanders and her family because she works for President Trump.
On the left side is a sign saying “No Gays.” At the top are the words “Wedding Cakes, Pastries, Bible.” I know of no retail store that would kick out a person because they are gay.
I owned a small company for 25 years and sold to mom and pop stores and I also had gay customers. The Bible says hate sin, but love everyone.
What has happened, and I know because I follow Liberty Counsel, a Christian law firm that is constantly fighting militant LGBT organizations. The organization’s objective is to force Christians to accept their behavior. They will identify a Christian business and go in and demand a baker to bake a cake with gay wedding information on the top, or a photographer to attend a gay wedding, etc. which if done forces the Christian owner to deny his/her Biblical teaching, which is their objective.
When the LGBT organization takes the business to court, they eventually lose. However it takes a great deal of money and time to be able be free from this terrible attack from the LGBT and sometimes they lose their business because of the high costs involved.
