Bruce Springsteen recently exercised his constitutional rights. As a business owner he has canceled his tour date in North Carolina. Why? Because of the contraversial “bathroom bill”. A petition has been started by liberal groups, the gay and lesbian self proclaimed leaders are standing up for his right as a business owner to refuse service.
By refusing service he has cost these people money in the form of ticket prices, baby sitters, hotel and car rentals and so much more. To quote the petition “Bruce Springsteen has a right to his deeply held beliefs. He has a right to control his business and refuse to do business with those he disagrees with,” I wonder does this sound like a familiar arguement to anyone else?
Shall we hear more of the argument? “He exercised that right when he refused to serve ticket holders in Greensboro NC, for a concert he agreed to perform on April 10th,” it continues. “He cancelled the concert just days before he was to perform, and did so specifically because he disagreed with the beliefs of the people of North Carolina.” Man I could swear I’ve heard that argument before.
Oh wait it’s the same argument these same leaders and liberals tried to tear down when used by Christian bakers and other Christian businesses.
I guess they finally agree with these businesses so when will the appology come? When will these businesses be given back their money for court costs and fines?
After all the Christian bakers cost the customers they refused to serve what? Some time and not days or weeks of planning, baby sitters, hotel and car rentals, dinner reservations et al.
Funny how the argument shifts when the shoe is on the other foot.
Hypocrisy much? I think so!
