Hice: Preventing Discrimination is Discrimination!

Jodi Hice, fundamentalist preacher, right wing radio show host and the Republican nominee to replace Rep. Paul Broun of Georgia in Congress, said on his radio show that forbidding discrimination against gay people is actually discrimination against Christians.

Citing the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby ruling, Hice said that Obama’s decision to sign this executive order “is almost like a thumbing of the nose of the president at the U.S. Supreme Court, at our First Amendment, at our unalienable rights … How else do you look at this but a thumbing of those nose of our administration at our First Amendment and our Supreme Court at the same time.”

Hice went on to call upon Congress to repeal Obama’s executive order by passing legislation that would “clearly prohibit our government from itself discriminating against any individual or any group or organization, whether nonprofit or for profit, it doesn’t matter, to prevent the government from discriminating based on the beliefs about marriage and sexuality.”

“Our government, our system, absolutely should be prohibited from discriminating against these types of groups,” Hice declared. “Our government should not be allowed to use these things to penalize individuals and groups for not adjusting their philosophies to political correct ideas.”

If the phrase “politically correct” had existed at the time, that statement could have been word for word the same in 1964 when the Civil Rights Act was passed. It was nonsense then and it’s nonsense now.

    Someone once told me that having a christian act against their conscience (like providing birth control in a health plan) was persecution. This is the same kind of nonsense.

    You know what Martin Niemöller said:

    First they came for the Christians, and I did not speak out —

    because they refused to serve me, told me to leave, called my criticism “Tyranny” and their privilege “Freedom”.

    And also they didn’t come for the Christians, because that’s ridiculous.

    The government doesn’t discriminate based on beliefs. You can hold any belief you want. Be a KKK cake-baker, a satanist photographer, or a holocaust-denying checkout clerk for all we care. What’s going to get you in trouble is denying public accommodation to other citizens based on race, religion, and a variety of other factors. You can’t do that – and this is not discriminatory, because nobody is allowed to do that.
