We rarely like it when that which we do is done to us. When we do things to hurt others, we are usually the first to cry foul when they do it back. This is especially true with children. Children see no inconsistency with their not wanting to be kicked, pinched, or bitten even as they are kicking, pinching, and biting the other child.
It is the same when one make our argument for us. They are not very happy when we are able to show that their behavior is quite the same as the behavior they were complaining about. This will soon be the case for the popular rock star Bruce Springsteen.
Christian News reports:
A petition has been launched in support of secular rocker Bruce Springsteen’s “right to refuse service” in states with which he disagrees, after he cancelled a concert in North Carolina last week out of his opposition to a recently passed state law that annulled a controversial “bathroom bill” in Charlotte and banned other cities from passing similar ordinances.
This change.org petition is set to show the world the hypocrisy of those who oppose Christian values. You cannot eat your cake and have it at the same time. We must decide when we are going to take a stance that we will be willing to hold that stance across the board. Otherwise, we will find ourselves being illogical. The petition reads:
“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,” the petition reads.
“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.”
And here is the prickly point. If you deny service to thousands and thousands of people, costing them hundreds in lost reservations and rentals, then you have no place attacking florists or bakers for refusing a few customers at no cost to them.
And this is why liberals hate logic; it gets them every time.
