Open Letter to @HeyTammyBruce re #MemoriesPizza

Have to give you credit for going on Fox and Friends and defending the Memories Pizza establishment.

No doubt,that took guts. However,i listened carefully and picked out something you might not have been aware you were doing.

You weren’t really defending freedom of religion-it was more about defending same sex relationships as a civil right. Same sex attraction and race are not equivalent. Not by a long shot.

Let’s clarify:

The problem that came up for Memories Pizza [and the statement that caused the firestorm ]had nothing to do with civil rights.TOTAL NON ISSUE. It’s about freedom of religion.PERIOD.

The other really troubling aspect of the whole situation was the reaction.What should have been condemned was the bullying,intimidation and THREATS.People want to engage in same sex behavior-feel free. Can people of the same gender be married? Nope. Marriage is between one man/one woman for life.You may think otherwise but because i recognize that it is intrinsically evil i am not going to co-operate. I do not have to tolerate evil.Do i advocate threatening,bullying,intimidating or harming people with same sex attraction? Definitely NOT. i wouldn’t for a second even entertain the thought of throwing people out of windows to their death because they have the disorder.

I’m Catholic. Same sex marriage is intrinsically evil. Orthodox Judaism forbids same sex relations.It’s in the Torah.

There isn’t a law on the planet that is going to force me to violate my conscience. So if a known homosexual would come to my establishment for a servic,e i would provide it.In fact, I would treat him/her very well. If a known homosexual came to my establishment and requested a service or product for a same sex ceremony then i would refuse. Nor would i rent out a room to same sex partners or a male/female cohabitating-even for one night. Not going to happen.Co-habitating aka shacking up in my day.

The Little Sisters of the Poor are not going to provide contraception or abortion and they’re not going to sign off so an insurance company can do it(by proxy).

Why do we-in this case Catholics- have to go to court to fight for a fundamental right that we’re guaranteed?

It’s about freedom of religion and that isn’t confined to worship. Unfortunately the poor woman at Memories Pizza hadn’t even refused the service-she only expressed her beliefs that  it was wrong and she couldn’t do it IF the situation came up. I’m sure same sex partners can find establishments that will provide for them.They don’t have to seek out Christian/Orthodox Jewish establishments just so they can cry disrimination. Eventually the government will probably attempt to get Christian pastors,priests,rabbis to perform same sex ceremonies. Mark my words.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church states the following:

2357 Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained.

2358 The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. This inclination, which is objectively disordered, constitutes for most of them a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God’s will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord’s Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition.

Homosexuals and Chastity

2359 Homosexual persons are called to chastity. By the virtues of self-mastery that teach them inner freedom, at times by the support of disinterested friendship, by prayer and sacramental grace, they can and should gradually and resolutely approach Christian perfection.
Conjugal Love

2360 Sexuality is ordered to the conjugal love of man and woman. In marriage the physical intimacy of the spouses becomes a sign and pledge of spiritual communion. Marriage bonds between baptized persons are sanctified by the sacrament.

You identified yourself as a gay woman on Fox and Friends. It is not your identity.Your identity is Tammy Bruce,a woman who is an incredible person-one of a kind.

Be All Offended.Sometimes i refuse to be tolerant.

Sometimes i will simply refuse to be tolerant.No apologies.No retraction.

bishop sheen quote on tolerance
If I understand the Religious Freedom Restoration Act [among others Religious Freedom Acts ]correctly it means that i can refuse a service if it is against my beliefs-but the person i’ve refused the service to can take me to court and sue. Chances are i would lose. So what good is any act if i have to defend my right to refuse in a court? It’s not worth the piece of paper it’s written on. The Little Sisters of the Poor are in counrt now for this very reason.
I do not own a business,which means i would not have to make the decision.Mute point. However,if I did own a business i would not particpate in any service for a same sex ceremony.I do not believe it is a marriage. If a gay person came into my store to buy a product or request a service other than a so called wedding ceremony-would i refuse then? Nope. Has nothing to do with violating my freedom of religion. As long as you don’t trample on freedom of religion i don’t have a problem. I do have a problem with the intimidation,bullying and blackmail by  gay/progressive activists in our country. If a corp decides to pull out of a state-so be it. Gov Pence should have had the backbone to say,go ahead. They mischaracterized what was going on in his state to make it a flashpoint for their agenda.
I don’t even watch a tv program when there are same sex partners in the program.I refuse to watch any television program that promotes the gay agenda. You can produce it.I don’t have to consume it.
I’m sick of people equating a person’s race with a persons having sexual involvement with someone of the same gender. There is no homosexual gene. There is nothing that forces a person with a disordered attraction from acting it out-and it’s not a marriage just becasue the state has decided to give them a license.
It is my right not to recognize it for one reason and one reason alone. It’s not possible. Marriage cannot be redefined and once it is then it’s something else but it’s NOT marriage.
I’m willing to live and let live but i will not tolerate evil.
I’m willing to live and let live-you’re free to make the choices for your life. I will not shut up and let freedom of religion be trampled on.Our rights come from God.I’m Catholic. Same sex marriage and abortion are intrinsically evil;also euthansia,cloning and EMBRYONIC stem cell research.
I don’t recognize our country anymore. We can’t even protect the most fundamental of our God given rights.The administration is corrupt. Obama lied-he claimed to support marriage as between one man,one woman for life. He only said that to get himself elected. One of many lies.
The first step of facism is to destroy freedom of religion. You let that right go out the window,you may as well kiss the rest goodbye.It’s taken them awhile but the Progressives are getting there.They’re not the biggest problem.The biggest problem is the rest of us have been beaten down for so long we’re throwing our hands up saying what’s the use. It’s all inevitable. We’ve gotten complacent. We aren’t fighting back. Is this the country we want to leave our children/grandchildren?

What about an Orthodox Jew? Same sex relationships are forbidden by the Torah.
