Liberal Democrats, LGBT and MSM … You Do Realize that it was President Bill Clinton Who Signed into Law the Federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) in 1993, Right?
TODAY’S DEMOCRATS PARTY IS NOT YOUR FATHER’S DEMOCRAT PARTY, HELL ITS NOT EVEN THE ONE OF 20 YEARS AGO.
Everyone needs to watch the VIDEO below of then Vice-President of the United States Al Gore and President William Jefferson Clinton comments and their gushing over the signing of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) in 1993 (text of HR 1308)and then compare it to the reaction of the Democrat party of today. So as the LGBT crowd is losing their collective minds over the recent passage of Religious Freedom Restoration laws in Indiana and Arkansas with faux-rage, they act like there already is not a federal law that states the same thing and 19 other states that already have their own Religious Freedom Restoration laws. But instead they, Democrats and their willing accomplices in the MSM attack a small business like Memories Pizza instead.
Let’s get some facts straight here as the LGBT community, Democrats and the MSM whine about the passage of a law that was supported by Democrats. Bill Clinton said in 1993 that the federal law would do a better job of protecting Americans of all faiths in the practice of their religion.
- The bill was introduced by Congressman Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on March 11, 1993. You know, that same Chucky Schumer who is supposed to be the next Democrat Senate Minority Leader.
- A companion bill was introduced in the Senate by Ted Kennedy (D-MA) the same day. Yes, Ted Kennedy, the Liberal Lion was for freedom of religion as well.
- It passed 97-3 in the US Senate and on a voice vote in the House.
- President Bill Clinton signed it into law.
Quotes from President Bill Clinton’s speech in signing the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) in 1993:
“It is interesting to note that what a broad coalition of Americans came together to make this bill a reality.”
“We all have a shared desire here to protect perhaps the most precious of all American liberties – religious freedom.”
“The free exercise of religion has been called the first freedom – that which originally sparked the full range of the Bill of Rights.”
“Today this event assumes a more majestic quality because of our ability together to affirm the historical role that people of faith have played in the history of this country, and the constitutional protections those that profess and express their faith have always demanded and cherished.”
“What this law basically says is that the government should be held to a very high level of proof before it interferes with someone’s free exercise of religion.” This judgement is shared by the people of the United States and Congress.”
“By honoring the principle that our laws and institutions should not impede or hinder , but should rather protect and preserve fundamental religious liberties.”
“Let us never believe that the freedom of religion imposes on any of us some responsibility to run from our convictions – let us instead respect one another’s faith.”
EXIT QUESTION: JUST CURIOUS, WHAT HAPPENED TO THE DEMICRAT PARTY THAT SO CHANGED THEIR VIEWS WHERE THEY WERE 100% BEHIND RFRA?
Tammy Bruce Who is Gay Says on FOX & FRIENDS, Gay Liberals Have Turned into a Mob of Fascists and Bullies
WOW, TAMMY BRUCE SAYS GAY LIBERALS HAVE TURNED INTO A MOB OF FASCISTS AND BULLIES … PROBABLY THE MOST INTELLIGENT COMMENTS ON THE ISSUES AS I HAVE SEEN
Radio host and Fox News contributor Tammy Bruce, an openly gay women, spoke the truth on Fox & Friends when she said that LGBT people against turning into fascists. Her remarks were in repsonse to how the LGBT activists viciously and savagely went after Memories Pizza and its owners for their religious beliefs. Tammy Bruce said what everyone wanted to say, but coming from a gay person was much more powerful. Bruce blasted the LGBT community and said, “For you to turn into what we have been fighting against for generations … so that we can condemn people who are different and with whom we disagree, it is the antitheses of what every civil rights movement was about.”
She is 100% correct. Tammy Bruce also stated that Democrats are trying to use this frenzied, wolf-pack attack by gays for their own political advantage. She went on to say, “If there is any one in the world who should understand the vulnerability of being a minority, of being somebody that may be others don’t understand or relate to, the vulnerabilities of work and jobs and be able to live your lives as you see fit, IT’S THE GAY COMMUNITY.” Or so you would think. Will the LGBT take any heed to Tammy’s comments? Probably not.
The gay liberals have turned into bullies, when our work is to stop that kind of behavior
Fox News contributor and openly-gay woman Tammy Bruce warned LGBT people against turning into fascists while opposing the controversial Indiana law.
Bruce said LGBT people opposing people who support the Indiana law, like the pizzeria who won’t serve same-sex marriages, goes against everything the gay rights and civil rights movement stand for: respecting other people’s views and lifestyles.
“For you to turn into what we have been fighting against for generations…” Bruce began, adding “so that we can condemn people who are different and with whom we disagree, it is the antitheses of what every civil rights movement was about.”
Bruce then evoked fascism to caution LGBT people on the Indiana law issue: “We saw this with Chick-fil-A, everybody came to Chick-Fil-A’s defense when they were under attack by fascists, by bullies–the gay liberals have turned into bullies.”
Just like with Chick-Fil-A, the LGBT community better be careful here and not overplay their hand. With the initial mob attack on Chick-Fil-A back in 2012 and the massive support shown to the them, it would appear that the silent majority is also coming to the aid of little Memories Pizza.
Owners of Memories Pizza Express Their Freedom of Religion and the LGBT Activists & Cronies Have Become the Bullies that they Have Complained About for Years
THE HATEFUL GAY MOB: WHEN YOU BECOME THEY VERY EVIL THAT YOU HAVE PROTESTED AGAINST, YOU HAVE LOST YOUR WAY AND DON’T DESERVE ANYONE SUPPORT.
The story of Memories Pizza in Walkerton, Indiana is just the most recent example of just how intolerant, vicious and hateful the LGBT community has become lately. The state of Indiana passed a law protection religious rights with the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, a law that was very similar to the federal one and the law passed by 19 other states. However, the LGBT activists, their cronies and and all-too willing leftist MSM attacked and misrepresented the law as being anti-Gay. Caught in the middle of the controversy and in the eye of the storm was little known and unheard of Memories Pizza located in Walkerton, IN.
Crystal O’Conner was asked a so-called hypothetical question by a news reporter, which was probably more of a set up hit piece than a question, if they would not cater a gay wedding? Her answer was, if they came into their restaurant they would most certainly serve them food; however, because of their religious beliefs, they would not cater a gay wedding. The LGBT brown shirts and liberal MSM lost their collective minds.
A small town, family-owned pizzeria has become the latest target of an angry mob of modern-day fascists — hell-bent on silencing anyone who opposes gay marriage.
Kevin O’Connor and his daughter Crystal own Memories Pizza in Walkerton, Ind. — just a hop, skip and a jump southwest of South Bend.
Mr. O’Connor and his family have been forced into hiding and had to temporarily shut down their store after they told a local television reporter that they would not cater a gay wedding.
“If a gay couple came in and wanted us to provide pizzas for their wedding, we would have to say no,” Crystal told ABC 57 on Tuesday.
The backlash against Memories Pizza and its owners, Kevin O’Connor and his daughter Crystal, was immediate, swift and as vile as it gets. The anonymous cowards on social media made death threats and called Kevin and Crystal every name in the book. One not-so swift nut job actually threatened to burn their business down. Did we mention the individual who made this hateful comment, Jessica Dooley, is the softball and girls’ golf coach at Concord High School in Elkhart, Indiana. We should say was the coach was she has since been suspended. Personally, anyone who is this ignorant to have a criminal threat like this belongs no where around students. The police department conducted an investigation and forwarded the case to the St. Joseph County Prosecutor’s Office for possible charges.
“Who’s going to Walkerton, IN to burn down #memoriespizza with me?” Jessica Dooley asked in the tweet, which has since been deleted. “Agree with #FreedomOfReligionBill? ‘That’s a lifestyle they CHOOSE’ Ignorant.”
But the fix was in and the vile attacks against Memories Pizza was in. They became Public Enemy #1 of the LGBT Hit squad. Not ISIS or countries like Saudi Arabia who kill gays just for being gay, but Memories Pizza. Why, because a bully always picks on the little guy. The O’Conner’s were forced to close down their business because of the mob. Really, the owners of a business were forced to close their business for fear of their own safety. NICE JOB LGBT. Is this what is has come to? Where is the tolerance from the gay community? You mean everyone is supposed to not only tolerate but accept the LGBT? Maybe the LGBT might want to take some tolerances classes of their own.
The family business came under fierce assault by LGBT activists and their cronies — accusing them of being anti-gay bigots. Their Facebook pages were smeared with gay pornography. Their phones were overwhelmed by vulgar and profane threats.
What is sad is that the MOB mentality was allowed to act in this manner and the media fanned the flames. It was not too long ago when the gay community cried foul when the heterosexual mobs used to do the same to them. But of course its different now because the LGBT community is doing it. Sorry, there is a way to do something and a way not to. The idea that people are forced to accept what they do not believe is insane. Most people have a if that’s what you want to do and that’s your right, than so be it … but do not think that you get to infringe on my right with yours.

Hypocrisy Hillary … Wow, if Hillary Clinton can’t keep composed on liberal NPR, how is she going to handle questions as a presidential candidate or will the MSM just give her a pass like Obama?
Get ready for Hillary Clinton’s favorable ratings to drop even more as America listens to Hillary Clinton and suddenly remembers that the Clinton era gave us the words, parsing and “Clintonesque”. Neither an endearing quality. In what can only be described as another disastrous interview, Hillary Clinton snaps at the radio host Terry Gross on NPR for pressing her on her gay marriage record. Note to Hillary, an NPR interview is supposed to be a liberal softball. More at Hot Air.
CLINTON: “No, I don’t think you are trying to clarify. I think you are trying to say that I used to be opposed and now I am in favor and I did it for political reasons. And that’s just flat wrong. So let me just state what I feel like I think you are implying and repudiate it. I have a strong record. I have a great commitment to this issue and I am proud of what I’ve done and the progress were making.”
Defensive, Testy Gay Marriage Interview
In an interview this afternoon on NPR, Hillary Clinton gets testy and defensive about her and her husband’s gay marriage record.
After 6 minutes of questioning, Clinton attacks host Terry Gross for pressing her on whether she changed her mind on gay marriage or she publicly stated something she had always believed.
GROSS: “So that’s one for you changed your mind?”
CLINTON: You know I really, I have to say, I think you being very persistent, but you are playing with my words and playing with what is such an important issue.”
GROSS: “I’m just trying to clarify so I can understand-”
CLINTON: “No, I don’t think you are trying to clarify.
During the interview, Clinton also attacks gay marriage opponents who “believe they have a direct line to the divine” and claims that “not that many” people supported gay marriage when her husband signed DOMA into law.
