By Martin Fisher, CAN news correspondent. A homosexual Facebook page has claimed victory after a Christian bridal shop in Bloomsburg, PA was forced to shut down.

 Owners of W.W. Bridal Boutique closed its doors at the end of March, claiming it could no longer safely stay in business after it received numerous threats that its owners would be killed, their children raped and their business burned to the ground.

 Threats against the bridal shop began in July of 2017 after a lesbian couple was denied service. Lisa Boucher, a co-owner of the store, told CAN that it refused service to the lesbian couple because it holds Christian beliefs defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman.

 The lesbian couple, Shannon Kennedy and Julie Samanas, immediately sought publicity after they were denied service, which resulted in various threats being directed at the shop's owners and family members.

 An opposition Facebook page was also created following the incident, which was dedicated to forcing the bridal shop out of business.

Calling itself “Boycott W.W. Bridal Boutique,” the page was launched on July 24, 2017 and had 269 followers when it announced victory over the bridal shop.

“I wanted o congratulate you on the successes we’ve made since the inception of this page. WW. Bridal Boutique is closing its doors,” the administrator wrote. With this congratulation, the administrator announced that the “page has run its course” and would also be shutting down.

 Martin Mawyer, president of Christian Action Network, took issue with the group’s assertion that it had anything to do with closing the Christian-owned bridal shop.

“To say that a homosexual boycott was responsible for closing W.W. Bridal Boutique is insincere and ridiculous,” Mawyer said. “This Christian bridal shop had never relied on a single dime from the homosexual community to stay in business.”

“The only way this Facebook page could have been responsible for its closure is if it was behind the depraved threats of rape, murder and arson that this bridal shop received,” Mawyer added. “And this is something the administrator of this farcical page is unwilling to admit to.”

“What closed this shop was hateful intimidation and cowardly threats,” Mawyer said, “not a minuscule group of boycotting homosexual sympathizers, most of whom live hundreds, if not thousands of miles away from Bloomsburg, PA, and most of whom had no wedding plans to begin with,” Mawyer said.

States Propose Orwellian Law Mandating State Home Invasion On Home-School Families

(TeaParty.org) – Lawmakers in some US states have proposed legislation that would require home visits for families with homeschooled children, posing a terrifying threat to parental authority and freedom in general.

Iowa HF 272 requires homeschool families who do not report to their school district in conducting their home education to submit to “health and safety visits” quarterly by “the board of directors of a school district.”

If parents decline, the proposed law says, “the juvenile court or district court upon a showing of probable cause may authorize the person making the home visit to enter the home and interview or observe the child.”

The law doesn’t explain why a school district would conduct “health and safety visits,” nor is “probable cause” defined.

But the party performing the visit on behalf of the school district would be a mandatory reporter, and the district can collaborate on the mandated home visits with the Department of Human Services, which in turn can collaborate with the state’s Department of Education.

A similar bill calling for a home investigation of homeschool families was recently introduced in Illinois. The visits there would be performed by the Child Protective Service Unit of the Department of Children and Family Services.

Iowa state Rep. Mary Mascher, a Democrat, introduced the bill, which is one of two introduced thus far during this legislative session requiring home visits for homeschool families.

Public schools do not exist to determine the “health and safety” of a child, they exist to provide children with an education.

In fact, plenty of public schools pose serious risks to the “health and safety” of children, whether that be increased risk to seasonal and contagious illness or the incidents of violent crime that plague the nation’s inner city schools.

This law is eerily reminiscent of the socialist systems many lawmakers in Washington would like to mimic here at home. There is nothing more authoritative than the state forcing their way into the home.

Homeschooling is a way a rapidly growing number of parents have found to combat the state-sponsored ideological indoctrination taking place in the public school system, and these authoritarians can’t stand that parents are finding a way to fight back and take their children’s educations, and minds.
