A Christian pressure group with strong ties to the Republican Party has claimed that sexual minorities are attempting to reintroduce slavery. The smear comes from the American Family Association, a Christian non-profit which opposes LGBT rights. The claim was made after a Kentucky court tossed out a discrimination case against a T-shirt printer who had refused to make shirts for a local LGBT Pride event. The judge in the case accepted the business owner’s argument that he could not make such T-shirts because of his religious beliefs. Commenting their victory the AFA claimed: “For the government to force someone to do work that violates his conscience is nothing less than tyranny. And for a man to be compelled under threat of punishment to perform work against his will is slavery. The reality is that the LGBT lobby is the reincarnation of some of the worst elements of the mindless prejudice of the Old South in its irrational venom toward people (Christians) who are not like them. The rainbow flag is the new Confederate flag. It is as much a symbol of bigotry as that flag ever was in the minds of the left. Bottom line: in Frankfort, Kentucky, homosexual activists tried to reintroduce slavery to the Deep South. They failed in the attempt. And the Constitution’s protections for religious liberty and freedom of speech were upheld. Let’s pray that this court will be just the first of many to protect our first freedom against the tyranny of the left.”
