Sally Kohn of CNN wants special, protected-class rights to force Christians to do business in a fashion which runs against their faith – but doesn’t want the government forcing gays or any other liberal group to do the same. But you could have guessed that, couldn’t you?
It’s never about equality – it’s always about the tearing down of Christianity, the country or The Constitution.
It’s an attack. Don’t kid yourself, this is a war and they are winning folks when they can up and tell you what you can and can’t do, what words you can use, what products to offer and most importantly – protect themselves from being held to the same standard, via the law – or in this case – politically-correct pressure.
Sally Kohn is a leftist who passes herself off as some sort of righteous defender of freedom, so CNN can’t get enough of her.
But our guy at Breitbart has her nailed to the wall today with hypocrisy dripping from her every pore. Not unlike this entire discussion about Indiana, Bill Clinton, Mike Pence and Chuck Schumer.

SALLY KOHN’S SMALL BUSINESS REFUSES TO SERVE EVERYONE
CNN’s Sally Kohn runs a small private for-profit business.
Indiana Bob runs a small private for-profit business.
Sally offers a product to the public as a speaker. Her product is inspirational speeches that conform to her worldview.
Bob offers a product to the public as a baker. His product is specialized wedding cakes that celebrate the holy union of marriage.
Sally is a very nice, very smart, very likable gay progressive.
Bob is a very nice, very smart, very likable practicing Muslim.
Sally will tell you she was born a lesbian.
Bob will tell you he was born a Muslim.
Sally’s speech is protected from the government by the First Amendment.
Bob’s religious faith is protected from the government by the very same First Amendment.
Because her speech is protected by the First Amendment, Sally cannot be forced by the government to alter her product — her speech — into something that violates her beliefs and conscience.
Although Bob’s religious practices and beliefs are protected by the same First Amendment, Sally is demanding the government force Bob into altering his product — a wedding cake — into something that violates Bob’s beliefs and conscience: a same-sex wedding cake.
Sally believes it is unconstitutional for the government to force her to alter her business product (inspirational speeches) in a way that violates her beliefs and her First Amendment rights.
Nevertheless, Sally also believes that freedom and equality demand the government force Bob to craft and deliver his business product (wedding cakes) in a way that violates his beliefs and First Amendment rights.
Because her speech is protected by the First Amendment, even though she offers her services to the public, the government cannot force Sally to serve everyone. For example, on her website, Sally offers to deliver “an inspiring tingle-in-your-toes speech,” but she could not be forced by the government and would not agree to offer that service to inspire or tingle anyone’s toes at a meeting of anti-abortion activists.
Nevertheless, Sally believes the product she serves the public (inspirational speeches) is more equal than the business product Bob serves the public (wedding cakes).
Thanks to her First Amendment protections, Sally does not believe she can be forced by the government to serve all of the public with her inspirational speeches.
Nevertheless, Sally believes Bob should be forced by the government to serve all of the public.
Sally believes her First Amendment speech rights are protected even when that right is turned into a for-profit business product.
Sally does not believe Bob’s First Amendment religious rights are protected when that right is turned into a for-profit business product.
Although she offers her product to the public, Bob would never dream of asking Sally to violate her First Amendment rights, her beliefs or her conscience.
Nevertheless, Sally would see the government punish Bob and the public shame Bob if he refused to violate his own First Amendment rights, his beliefs and his conscience.
Bob would never dream of trampling Sally’s First Amendment rights.
Sally wants the government to trample Bob’s First Amendment rights.
