Kentucky Supreme Court Rules
in Favor of Christian T-Shirt Shop,
Rejects LGBT Claim

Original Article

Posted By: M2, 11/9/2019 6:23:17 AM

On Nov. 1, the Kentucky Supreme Court ruled in favor of Christian print-shop owner Blaine Adamson, who was sued for refusing to print “gay-pride” T-shirts for the Lexington Pride Festival. According to the opinion of the court, written by Justice Laurance B. VanMeter, “[T]his matter must be dismissed because the Gay and Lesbian Services Organization (GLSO,) the original party to bring this action before the Lexington Fayette Urban County Human Rights Commission, lacked statutory standing to assert a claim against Hands On Originals under the Lexington Fayette Urban County Government.”

The next time someone scoffs at your assertion that gays want special rights not equal rights, cite them the case of (deep breath) The Gay & Lesbian Services Organization vs Hands On Originals before The Lexington Fayette Urban County Human Rights Commission. We are so far gone into an Orwellian galaxy we can't even pick up the Constitution's radio waves.

This idiocy will not stop until the people bringing these malicious lawsuits have to pay for the damages they are causing. That goes also for the members of the governmental groups (e.g., "human rights" commissions) who are persecuting citizens for some imagined offense against LGBT provocateurs. The alleged offenses are imaginary. There are no damages suffered, and the motive of the plaintiffs is not to get compensation for legal injury, but rather to harass and intimidate. Good on the Kentucky Supreme Court for this decision, but it was basically a decision for the defense. We need to go on offense and make these gangsters pay.

A short while back I heard that there was a glut of lawyers in America and that people were leaving school with law degrees and no jobs. Could there be a legal parasite organization out there, perhaps the schools themselves, creating all of these stupid, frivolous lawsuits to provide employment for the incompetents who need the income? When somebody comes at you with a lawyer for any reason, it usually requires you to hire your own, thus employing two of the bloodsuckers for every suit. Stranger things go on in the business world, law and medicine.

The only reason this case went this way was that the GLSO is an ORGANIZATION, not a person! As soon as a person walks into that shop and insists on the same T-shirt printing job, the court will go the other way.

Only on a technicality. If an individual brings the same lawsuit, they will hear it, and the homosexuals probably will win, sad to say.

#7 - That precedent was already set when the SCOTUS ruled that the baker in Colorado could not be compelled to create a themed wedding cake (the operative word being "create") for the g couple. That ruling would extend to protect a T-shirt designer from being compelled to create a design with which he disagreed. If he had shirts with rainbows and ponies already on the shelves and a customer said he wanted to buy them for a pride event, different story.

Sometimes I think these groups purposely choose a business they know will refuse them so they can file a lawsuit and bring notice to their disgusting cause. Good for this business owner for sticking to his guns and refusing to compromise his values.

#8, what you say is correct, but it all seems to hang on "artistic"..... I wonder if the homosexuals bring a design that they have created for printing, whether the problem may arise again. OTOH, the T-shirt company should set a policy of never printing "someone else's design". That would lock in their artistry as an integral part of all of their T-shirts, and may protect them from the hateful homosexuals.

It's worrisome that some of these bogus cases that are being won against the gay lobby mob, tackle the issue of standing only and are not being won on the merits. It may be that the courts don't want to get into the weeds about a business owner's Constitutional rights to refuse to do certain work (even though this court did consider Adamson's previous consistent track record); the lest thorny issue is standing and that is what they are ruling on. It's just an observation. Of course, I will take the win any way it comes.

Three leading Democratic presidential candidates recently endorsed a new policy regarding U.S. military aid to Israel: It should be conditioned on Israel embracing policies toward the Palestinians favored by American progressives. At the J Street conference last week, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) demanded that Israel "fundamentally change" its approach to terrorist-controlled Gaza, adding, "I think it is fair to say that some [U.S. military aid to Israel] should go right now into humanitarian aid in Gaza." Israeli officials believe such moves would enable Hamas to import more weapons and lead to another war. South Bend, Ind., mayor Pete Buttigieg called for cutting aid if Israel annexes the West Bank,

In the aftermath of a recent Florida self-defense shooting, female gun owners argued that the AR-15 provides specific advantages to women for home defense, vehemently rejecting the views of gun-control activists who insist the firearm is unnecessary. Speaking with the Washington Free Beacon on Friday, five female firearm owners and advocates said the AR-15 platform offers several features that are ideal for women specifically. Robyn M. Sandoval, executive director of A Girl & A Gun Women's Shooting League, said the rifle is both more effective and safer for female shooters.
Why Study Latin? 31 replies

Oxford professor Nicola Gardini urges people to read and study Latin. He believes that Latin is the antidote for the modern age, which seems transfixed by the spontaneous, the easy, and the ephemeral. His new book, Long Live Latin: The Pleasures of a Useless Language, argues that Latin combines truth and beauty with the timelessness of art. People should study Latin for all the reasons people should read literature. In his Confessions, St. Augustine (354–430 C.E.) “placed the learning of Latin under God’s purview,” Gardini writes. Augustine believed Latin drew a child closer to God, “the truest truth.” Gardini argues that Latin contains the logic and precision of math

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff rejected the GOP’s request that the panel summon Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, to testify at public impeachment hearings next week. The California Democrat also signaled he will not agree to some of the other witnesses Republicans requested Saturday, including Alexandra Chalupa, a former Democratic National Committee staffer who Republicans said worked with the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington, D.C., “to try to get political dirt on then-candidate Trump’s campaign.”

If Adam Schiff were a prosecutor, his November 5 contribution to USA Today would violate rule 3.8(f) when he claimed (again) that he had secret evidence of a secret crime committed by the president. Our system of due process (as codified by this rule) recognizes that it’s unfair for an accuser to use newspapers to claim access to secret evidence of a target’s criminal conduct. This isn’t something that was allowed to happen in past impeachment efforts and Americans should be skeptical of Schiff’s case when he’s not giving the president’s team equal access to the evidence of the supposed “crime.”

Representative Adam B. Schiff’s (D-Calif.) impeachment inquiry is a real danger to every Democrat associated with it. Less than two years ago, Schiff’s libertine idea of truth showed itself. Jay Whig called him out then for misrepresenting the nature and purposes of the independence of the FBI. Schiff went on to claim that, as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, he had seen evidence that Trump had colluded with the Russians, with the implication that the Mueller report would expose this. Schiff was caught in this lie, spectacularly, when Special Counsel Robert Mueller revealed precisely the opposite of what Schiff had said he knew for a fact. There was never

Though The View has been on television since 1997 and its numerous hosts have come and gone, it is a mystery as to who watches it. In its formative years, it may have been watchable, even occasionally newsworthy; Barbra Walters was an actual journalist. Now, from the clips that are picked up and aired by other news outlets, it has clearly devolved into a slugfest -- vicious, leftist women attack their guests if remotely conservative. There is zero respect for any guest with a politically incorrect opinion. They slobbered over Chelsea Clinton as if she were the Queen of England and attacked Donald Trump Jr.

As I’ve noted before, I didn’t vote for Donald Trump in the 2016 GOP primary. However, I eagerly voted for him over Hillary Clinton (and everyone else on the ballot) in the 2016 general election. I almost certainly will do so again in 2020. President Trump has been a very pleasant surprise as President of the United States. He has a long list of excellent accomplishments that have made me even more eager to vote for him in 2020. Not the least of these accomplishments is President Trump’s fulfilling his promise to remake the federal judiciary by appointing -- and having confirmed -- conservative judges and justices.

Joe Morrissey was jailed and lost his license to practice law after being convicted of having sex with his 17-year-old secretary. He pled guilty to a misdemeanor in the ensuing court case and served for only three months in a “work-release term.” He was also forced to resign from his seat in the Virginia House of Delegates, but then ran again in the special election to retake the seat and was re-elected.
