Oh, Thank You, O Tolerant Leftists, Peace Be Upon You...

I have to admit, I had not read anything but the headlines on this story until Dan Phillips took note of the story. It is now apparently against the law in some places to--you might want to sit down for this one--advertise, in church, for a Christian roommate.

I **** thee not.
The ad "expresses an illegal preference for a Christian roommate, thus excluding people of other faiths,” according to the complaint filed by the Fair Housing Center of West Michigan.

"It's a violation to make, print or publish a discriminatory statement," Executive Director Nancy Haynes told Fox News. "There are no exemptions to that."

Haynes said the unnamed 31-year-old woman’s case was turned over to the Michigan Department of Civil Rights. Depending on the outcome of the case, she said, the woman could face several hundreds of dollars in fines and “fair housing training so it doesn’t happen again.”

Harold Core, director of public affairs with the Michigan Department of Civil Rights, told the Grand Rapids Press that the Fair Housing Act prevents people from publishing an advertisement stating their preference of religion, race or handicap with respect to the sale or rental of a dwelling.


...Haynes said officials plan on pursuing the matter.

"We want to make sure it doesn't happen again," she said.
Care to take a crack at how many protected freedoms this violates?

Some of you out there who fancy yourselves a little bit on the liberalish side like to tell me, from time to time, that this "culture war" thing is all in my head.

Bull. You just don't see it, for the same reason a fish doesn't know it's in the water.

  1. I read about this on the libertarian blog Classical Liberal. It is messed up. Not surprisingly though, I think this "culture war" thing is blown out of proportion, but then again I am a bit to the left of you so I am going to see things differently. That all having been said, this lady did nothing wrong.
