Jim Campbell writes at Alliance Defending Freedom:
After much anticipation, the Washington Supreme Court has punished Barronelle Stutzman for peacefully operating her business consistently with her faith.
The court's decision affirms a lower-court ruling that requires Barronelle to pay the attorneys’ fees that the ACLU racked up in suing her.
Often, in cases like this, the attorneys' fees for each side are hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not more.
What we are witnessing here is not justice (it's not even close), but fascism -- in particular, homofascism.
Fascism is a radical relativistic fact-denying will-to-power that rejects transcendent, humane, and ethical norms and instead seeks substitutes for these norms within the closed-down political state. It is the idolatry of secularized state political power, and because it lacks a high view of the human being (as merely matter or merely a creature of the state, for example), it always, by inner necessity, results in horrible inhumanity.
No amount of (whether paid or heartfelt) marching, protesting, or rioting in the name of liberation can make up for the fundamental and irredeemable fascist poverty with respect to the worth, dignity, and significance of the human being. In a fascist system, the human intrinsically is a zero and is therefore treated that way. Fascism is principially inhumane.
Homofascism seeks to absolutize and impose a diversity-denying monosexuality that wars irrationally against the facts of life (the biology of male and female), that wars principially against the American mainstream (rooted in liberating transcendent norms -- see the Declaration of Independence), and wars violently against the human being as human being. After all, the human is created to be free of state totalitarianism and instead to choose loving and liberating community with a knowable and factually verifable Creator and with our neighbor, who is of great worth and dignity, by virtue of his or her level of being, having been created in the image of God.
Homofascist faith forges chains. It co-opts the instrumentality of government as a force for good and transforms it into a force for gross inhumanity and evil. In the name of whatever empty trigger words happen to be culturally resonant in the present moment ("diversity," "love," "equality," "choice," "tolerance"), it unleashes hatred and venom upon those who stand for enduring freedom and intrinsic humanness.
By this mechanism of manipulation and hate, the strong prey upon the widow and the orphan, upon the "scum of the earth," and upon those who insist on asking questions, thinking for themselves, and glorying in the wonder and diversity of male and female.
Intelligence and humanity revolt. And if America would be America, she and we must overcome.
