Are Homosexuals Borrowing the Muslim’s ‘Jizya’ Tax for America?

Deep in the Islamic tradition is ‘Jizya’ — a tax which forces non-Muslims to pay an exorbitant fee for living within a Muslim state.

Now, from farmers in New York, to those offering wedding cakes, photography, and other services, all have been fined thousands, and sometimes more than $100K for having and acting on a religious belief that is different the homosexuals who demand their services.

These fees and fines are in excess, a tax on Christians who are living out their faith and beliefs in the businesses they have labored for and have built.

In America we should not fear paying a tax or fee to Muslims nor homosexuals just because our faith is different from theirs.
