Via email from hate group leader Tony Perkins:
After Monday’s wildly off-base decision, most liberals should have been out celebrating. But despite being handed a judicial gift — an LGBT victory they’d have never managed democratically — Democrats didn’t stop to party. They were already back on the Senate floor, demanding more. Now that they’ve got the Supreme Court taking a match to religious liberty, they’re apparently hoping Congress will finish the job.
They’re the Party of Never Satisfied. Democrats, who couldn’t get Congress to go where SCOTUS did, isn’t even stopping to savor the moment. Like Obergefell, they’re already on to phase two: turning what’s left of Americans’ freedom to a pile of smoldering ash. As far as they’re concerned, it wasn’t enough that six justices magically redefined human biology. Or that faith-loving Americans are about to be legally tormented like never before. After Monday their goal is bigger: using the court’s decision to bash through whatever religious barriers to their agenda still exist. And the “Equality” Act is the way they plan to try.
Fortunately, under the Senate’s rules, you can’t hotline a bill if even one Senator objects. And Senators Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), Mike Lee (R-Utah), and James Lankford (R-Okla.) dutifully pushed on the brakes. In stirring speeches that spelled out the scope of this devastation, they looked at their colleagues across the aisle and asked what happened to civil disagreement? What happened to coexistence?
