Rush: Gay Rights, Religious Freedom Debate Really About Power

By    |   Tuesday, 07 Apr 2015 06:18 PM

Gay rights activists targeting businesses that don't want to cater to same-sex weddings are really on a power grab, radio host Rush Limbaugh said on his syndicated program Tuesday.

"It's not for gay rights," Limbaugh told his radio audience. "These are activists on the gay side that are going into these establishments."

Limbaugh differentiated activists from gay people who simply live their lives and don't get involved in politics. Those not politically motivated simply move on to another business if someone refuses them service for a same-sex wedding, he said.

But those who attempt to force a business owner to violate his or her religious beliefs are being "deliberately provocative," he said.

"They're political activists, and they're attempting to advance an agenda by whittling away at another agenda," he said. "But it isn't about gay rights. This is about power."

Activists purposely target businesses they hope will reject them in an effort to move their own agenda, he said.

"It's not to deal with discrimination. It is to attack majorities and take down the powerful, pure and simple," Limbaugh said.
