It seems that the idea today is to squelch or silence the voices of those who disagree with the politically correct, homosexual favoring crowd. That is what happened to some firefighters whose lawsuit was thrown out by the courts.
Here is the thing: those who wish to refuse the Christian the right to conscientiously object to partaking in that which celebrates the things they understand to be deviance are cutting off their noses to spite their faces.
Why? Because the very freedom they have to express their favor toward said homosexuality is the result of the voices of many faithful Christians who fought for religious liberty.
The very Bill of Rights that we have today comes to us due to much effort on the part of Baptists in Virginia in the late eighteenth century. Their passion for religious freedom and freedom of speech can be traced through James Madison all the way back to the great Christian witness William Tyndale.

The homofacist agenda that seeks to silence all dissenters are biting the very hands that have fed them, i.e. the ones (Though not the individuals, the people groups) who fought that they might have their freedom of speech.
Once you silence the Christians, you will find that you have silenced the voice of the only group who have a worldview that is consistent enough to give you free speech.
Free speech cannot logically follow an atheistic, pantheistic, or humanistic worldview. It only logically follows the Christian worldview. That is why our very Declaration of Independence declares that “all men are created equal” and that they are endowed by their “Creator” with certain inalienable rights.
Rights come from One who created all, owns all, and controls all. The freedom that we have to exercise those rights come to us courtesy of people who bled for those freedoms.
The politically correct crowd is very foolish in thinking that freedom comes in the silence and/or absence of Christian voices. In fact, true freedom will last in no place other than where Christian theism is prevalent.
