Practicing What You Preach

Tracy Morgan

Tracy Morgan

I just read that comedian Tracy Morgan has cancelled a performance in Mississippi because of an incoming law that allows some workers to refuse to do business with certain individuals because of religious reasons. Singer Bryan Adams has also cancelled a scheduled appearance in the state for the same reason.

These decisions come after Ringo Starr and Bruce Springsteen said that they would not do shows in North Carolina because of that state’s policy that compels people to use public restrooms that correspond with their gender.

In a related issue, ESPN recently fired sportscaster Curt Schilling because of his comments about protecting people who go into public restrooms from the unwanted presence of someone who doesn’t belong there.

I am glad that Morgan, Adams, Starr, Springsteen and ESPN have the right to refuse to do business with anyone who does not share their beliefs about important matters. I long for the day when the hypocrisy of the left is seen for what it is, and the same liberties they enjoy are afforded to florists, photographers, bakers and others who do not wish to do business with people with whom they strongly disagree.

“…Do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach.”—Matthew 23:3.
