‘Absolute lie’: Media, Twitter liberals falsely suggest ‘No Gays Allowed’ signs popping up in Christian-owned stores

Reading, a commercial once said, is fundamental.  Unless, of course, one happens to be a pro-LGBT leftist looking for a narrative he or she can use to bash Christians.  Then facts don’t seem to matter much.  A USA Today article making the rounds on social media suggests that Christian-owned stores are posting “No Gays Allowed” signs in the wake of the recent Supreme Court decision stating that a religious baker could refuse to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding.  There’s only one problem with that claim.

The article is dated July 1, 2015.

That didn’t stop leftists from pushing their propaganda, however.

Yes, that’s the same Charles Blow who writes for the New York Times.

Others jumped on the bandwagon without checking out the article or apparently even caring that the USA Today post is three years old.

Fortunately there were some who saw the original date of the post:


Writing at the Daily Wire, Ben Shapiro observed that the original piece is dated 2015 and added:

It has nothing to do with the recent Supreme Court decision in Masterpiece Cakeshop. But this is how the media Left create horrifyingly false narratives; this is how they promote the idea that religious people the country over will simply stop serving gay people now that the Supreme Court has protected religious freedom.

No doubt the lie has already made it around the world several times as the truth is just beginning to tie its shoelaces.
