For Immediate Release – Attorney General Candidate Larson Responds to Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission
Constitution Party of Wisconsin Press Release: June 19, 2018
When asked to respond to the United States Supreme Court’s recent Masterpiece Cakeshop decision, Terry Larson said, “The devil wins again.”
Terry Larson is the Constitution Party of Wisconsin’s 2018 candidate for the office of Wisconsin Attorney General. He is the author of the surprising book, “The Christian Response to Homosexual Marriage: How Progressives are Ending America” published by World Ahead Press on June 26, 2017; exactly two years after the infamous Obergefell v. Hodges decision.
“Now the clergy across America can return to saying and doing nothing about same-sex marriage, the sin of homosexual sex, and pretty much everything else.”
Larson reminds us this latest decision involving same-sex marriage does not clearly provide protections for “the mice behind the pulpits.” It could take some time before a pastor or priest, “with the guts to say something about anything,” finds himself before a judge who will determine what his punishment should be for disagreeing with the Obergefell decision.
When asked if homosexual sex is a sin, Larson replied, “Yes, it’s a sin. It’s written clearly in the Bible. I didn’t write it, but that’s what it says. And that’s not open to any interpretation, judicial or otherwise either. And you can quote me on that.”
“So now the Alliance Defending Freedom and all the usual groups are going on about what a victory this is for Christians in America. This isn’t a win any more than the Liberty Counsel’s defense of that Kentucky County Clerk, Kim Davis. And you can quote me on that too.”
Larson continued explaining that in removing the Kentucky county clerks’ names from the marriage licenses, so Christians are not forced to go along with homosexual marriages, Kentucky only affirmed the Obergefell opinion is law and conceded homosexual marriage for the rest of the country.
“And that’s what’s happened here again. Christians have protected themselves, or so they think for a time, and many couldn’t care less that same-sex marriage is still being forced on the rest of the country, that homosexuality continues to be normalized and now this insanity about gender identity which is following immediately behind it.”
Larson asked if there isn’t anyone else who thinks it’s ridiculous how the Court in Obergefell granted homosexuals a Constitutional right to marry, a right that heterosexuals don’t have; and the same Court in Masterpiece Cakeshop declared some of us can effectively deny them that right.
“We added the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments to our Constitution to provide equal protections for the basic civil rights of black Americans. Then the Democrat party came along with their Jim Crow Laws, legalizing racism and making black Americans about as unequal as they could at that time. This looks pretty much like the same thing to me.”
Larson said Masterpiece Cakeshop simply “legitimized that absurd Obergefell decision and became the second most absurd Court opinion in recent years.”
Terry Larson promised Chief Justice Anthony Kennedy after Obergefell that he would “do everything I lawfully can to oppose the enforcement of your Obergefell opinion as law in my state and all other states which do not recognize homosexual marriages under their state laws.” While Masterpiece Cakeshop is a “serious blow”, he vows to continue.
If elected Wisconsin Attorney General, Terry Larson has pledged to stop the enforcement of judicial branch decisions as law in our state, take action against anyone who damages or removes any veterans’ or Civil War memorials or monuments, see federal immigration laws and/or similar state laws enforced, and take action against anyone infringing upon the freedom of speech or the right to bear arms we have under both our federal and state constitutions.
