As homosexual activists continue to wage monetary and political war against Christian businesses who won’t cater to same-sex marriages, radio host Rush Limbaugh is stepping forward to proffer his own possible solution to the battle.
“I know that many of you out there run businesses that if a gay couple … came in and asked for your service, you would deny it, on the basis that you disapprove, your religion does not sanction the approval of gay marriage,” Limbaugh explained on his national broadcast Monday.
“My idea is quite simple. Don’t use that as the excuse anymore.”
The top-rated host then gave an example and instructions on what specifically a business owner should say.
“Let’s say that you own the ABC Wedding Cake Bakery. The only thing you do is you bake wedding cakes, and as such, militant gay activists target your bakery. They’re gonna take you out. They’re gonna take you down. They’re gonna walk in there, they’re gonna tell you they’re gonna get married, and of all the bakeries in the world, yours has been recommended to them because that’s all you do. …
“Instead of telling the gay couple that you refuse bake the cake because you disapprove of homosexuality, you should now say you are not going to bake a cake for the gay wedding because you fear Muslim backlash. Or, due to your respect for Islam, you cannot bake a cake for a gay wedding. See how that flies.
“Don’t say anything about your religion. Don’t say anything about it’s your religion that prevents you from doing it. Say it this way. You respect Islam or you’re afraid of Muslim backlash.”
Limbaugh indicated his idea was sparked by the glaring irony in avoiding depictions of the Islamic prophet Muhammad, but a lack of concern for Muslim opposition to same-sex marriage.
“Why on the one hand do we respect their wishes when it comes to cartoon renderings of the prophet Muhammad and ignore their wishes and ignore what they claim upsets them and angers them when it comes to gay marriage?” he wondered.
Over the weekend, NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” program spoofed America’s fear of offending Muslims by portraying a Pictionary-style game show which had contestants paralyzed by fear of drawing the prophet Muhammad.
