Victory for Christianity! Victory for upholding the U.S. Bill of Rights!
Christianity in America is under attack. American founding documents — the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights are under attack. Daily. In every institution. In our courts. Today I can report a minor victory, but victory nonetheless (as this ruling will be appealed in the courts). The following judgment will be appealed because the satanic driven and fueled militant homosexual movement will never rest until they have either done away with true Christianity — which God will never permit — or they have corrupted and perverted U.S. laws, courts, minds, and churches as to strong arm their way through there orchestrated fascist actions.
All true believers in the One True God, Christ the Lord, the Holy Spirit and the inerrant Word of God, the Holy Bible need to be thankful and rejoice in the following judgment but also not grow lax. We must gird our loins and increase in faith, increase in discernment and spiritual wisdom and strength and turn to and trust in and rely upon the Lord and the Holy Spirit to fulfill God’s will, God’s plan, and for us to stand boldly and firmly in the faith wearing the full armor or God and Christ’s salvation. To not turn and relent in the face of abominations and sin which goes against God and nature. To not sit silent or idle as the lies of satan fill the ears and minds of the majority of people living in the United States, and around the world with regard to the abomination of homosexuality.
We must fervently, humbly pray for the repentance of our people, our nation, and pray for our leaders, our elected and appointed officials, our judges that their hearts and minds be pricked with the truth of God and His word, His will and they not relent and fall prey to the wiles of the devil and the increasing evil.
We know what is coming but that does not mean we bow to it and allow it.
We must fight the good fight. Continue daily in diligent prayer and in continued Bible study. Allowing our faith and trust in God to increase our spiritual knowledge and strength of His will and ways.
Do not accept evil and sin.
Call evil and sin what it is, for what it is.
Too many professed Christians and far too many professed Christian denominations confuse God is love with worldly love. God and Christ have no part in sin or evil. They are without sin. Without evil. God and Christ have never tolerated or invited in sin, abominations or evil. Yet today’s professed Christians in droves, by the tens of millions, and more and more denominations daily are inviting in and tolerating the sin of homosexuality rather than calling sin sin and evil evil and mortifying sin as instructed in the inerrant word of God. The world invites in and tolerates sin, abomination, evil and the cunning lies of the devil. The church ought not!
Do not imagine you can befriend evil and sin and accommodate it. Do not think you can take on the devil on your own, or with New Age corrupted doctrines which now infect many churches and come out victorious. The devil will devour you. And do not imagine false teachers and false teachings of tolerance and inclusion will please God or lead to victory.
Only the truth from God’s Word about sin, about lawlessness, about following the world and its ways spoken written and taught and placing all our trust in God and Christ can lead to victory. God and Christ defeat evil, sin and satan. We of our own cannot.
False teachings cannot and will not.
Only the truth and power of God and Christ can and will.

A wedding cake is an ‘artistic expression’ that a baker may deny to a same-sex couple, Calif. judge rules

Forcing a baker to provide a wedding cake for a same-sex marriage over her religious objections violates her right to free speech, a California judge has ruled.
“A wedding cake is not just a cake in a Free Speech analysis,” wrote Superior Court Judge David R. Lampe in a decision late Monday. “It is an artistic expression by the person making it that is to be used traditionally as a centerpiece in the celebration of a marriage. There could not be a greater form of expressive conduct,” he said.
As a result, a state anti-discrimination law, which applies to all kinds of other goods and services, does not apply to the baker, who lives in Bakersfield.
The judge’s reasoning is similar to that of the “cake artist” awaiting a U.S. Supreme Court ruling. In that case, Jack C. Phillips, a Colorado baker, is arguing that the First Amendment’s free speech and free exercise of religion clauses give him the right to refuse wedding services to a same-sex couple, despite public accommodations laws that require businesses that are open to the public to treat all potential customers equally. The court heard arguments in Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission in December.
The argument of the Colorado baker has the support of the Trump administration, marking the first time the government has argued for an exemption to an anti-discrimination law, as The Washington Post’s Robert Barnes and Ann E. Marimow reported.
The California case, which is likely to be appealed, began with a complaint by Eileen and Mireya Rodriquez-Del Rio before California’s Department of Fair Employment and Housing after they sought to buy a cake from Tastries bakery for their October 2017 wedding vows.
The couple did not want any words or messages on the cake, just the cake. Still, the owner, Cathy Miller, told them that “because she does not condone same-sex marriage,” according to the opinion, she would send their order to another bakery, called Gimme Some Sugar.
“Miller is a practicing Christian and considers herself a woman of deep faith,” the opinion said. She believes that same sex unions “violate a Biblical command that marriage is only between a man and a woman.”
She is also “a creative artist” who “participates in every part of the custom cake design and creation process,” the opinion said.
The state agency sided with the couple, arguing that California’s Unruh Act, which bars discrimination in public accommodations, “does not compel speech, but only conduct,” in this case, the baking and selling of a cake.
In addition, the state argued, the First Amendment protects only “those occasions where government requires a speaker to disseminate another’s message,” which was not the case here.
It sought an order forcing Miller to provide the cake.
Lampe, the judge, denied it. He said it did not matter that the baker was not being asked to design particular words on the cake. The wedding alone, with the couple engaging in speech, “could not be a greater form of expressive conduct.”
He compared a bakery to a tire shop, saying that the shop could not refuse to sell a tire to a same sex couple because “there is nothing sacred or expressive about a tire.” Similarly, had the couple just chosen a cake out of a display case, the bakery could not have refused to sell it to them.
“The difference here is that the cake in question is not yet baked. . . . The State asks this court to compel Miller to use her talents to design and create a cake she has not yet conceived with the knowledge that her work will be displayed in celebration of a marital union her religion forbids.
“ . . . For this court to force such compliance would do violence to the essentials of Free Speech guaranteed under the First Amendment.”
