Several state legislatures are about to pass laws permitting business owners to refuse to serve gays if it violates their religious beliefs. This may prove to be the proverbial "slippery slope" if the Supreme Court allows them to stand.

No Gays Allowed!

By Elton Camp

There’s Roscoe, a fine Christian is he
Just as righteous as anybody could be

With his Bible he did like eating a fish
Roscoe picked out only what he did wish

For “love your enemies,” he did care
And really wished that wasn’t in there

“Vengeance is mine,” the Lord did say
But Roscoe didn’t like it to be that way

He called his legislator all filled with spite
“Serving gays in my business isn’t right!

To let ’em inside, my conscience does offend.
Pass a law so this stuff can come to an end.”

“The Supreme Court keeps giving ’em rights,
Let’s not comply without having some fights.”

So the legislature passed a bill that did say
Any business can turn those evil gays away

Roscoe was happy with the rights he did win
He’d bar from his business those doing sin

He stationed himself at his business door,
Shouting, “Fags can’t come here anymore!” 

The religious fanatics thought they found
A legal way human rights to get around

What will the outcome of such laws be?
Roscoe was shocked at what he did see 

A private resort a large sign erected
To show exactly what was expected

“No Christians Allowed,” it mandated
This discrimination, Roscoe so hated

Rights that for himself he did claim
For others he felt shouldn’t be the same

He learned what “slippery slope” meant
When rights, the law does circumvent
