Jack Phillips Case: What Are “Rights”?

By | June 20, 2021 | 0 Comments

More on Christian baker Jack Phillips: The rights enumerated in the Bill of Rights are, in essence, freedom from government coercion. The government is forbidden to interfere with practice of religion, speech, assembly, bearing arms, and so forth.

But now we have turned this on its head. “Rights” now mean the government can coerce you to decorate a cake in a way you believe is immoral, participate in abortion and euthanasia, which you believe are immoral, and so forth.

Preserving our rights in a totalitarian atmosphere is difficult enough. Preserving our rights when we can’t even define the term will be impossible. As the old saying goes, my right to move my fist ends where your nose begins. And my right to force you to do something ends where your right to refuse begins. It’s that simple – and that deep.
