Judson Phillips: Brewer's veto imposes slavery, nude weddings & penis cakes

On February 27th, 2014, Tea Party Nation president Judson Phillips responded to Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer's veto of the proposed "right to discriminate" legislation with a lengthy tirade about slavery, nude weddings and cakes shaped like penises.

In a piece on the Tea Party Nation website, Phillips writes that "tyranny is on the march," insisting that business owners who are not allowed to discriminate against gays and lesbians are "slaves" to the "great liberal state," aided by "French Republicans" like Brewer.

"A free man or woman controls their labor," he writes. "A slave has no control over their labor. A free man or woman decides who they will work for and under what conditions. The slave cannot.

"The left and the homosexual lobby are both pushing slavery using the Orwellian concepts of 'tolerance' and 'inclusiveness'."

Phillips proceeds, as many in the American Taliban do, to insist that Christians will one day also be required to perform the most lewd of services his diseased little brain is capable of imagining.

"Should a devote baker be required to create a cake for a homosexual wedding that has a giant phallic symbol on it or should a baker be required to create pastries for a homosexual wedding in the shape of genitalia?" he asks. "Or should a photographer be required to photograph a homosexual wedding where the participants decide they want to be nude or engage in sexual behavior? Would they force a Jewish photographer to work a Klan or Nazi event? How about forcing a Muslim caterer to work a pork barbeque dinner?"

To Phillips, the obvious question is this: Would it be okay with him if a straight couple wanted a nude ceremony and a penis-shaped cake?

Businesses in Arizona, and everywhere else in America, will always be free to refuse services, at least so long as their objection is to the service itself and not to who is asking for it.
