Sanctuaries For Conservatives?

San Francisco is making headlines for its status as a sanctuary city -- a city that refuses to cooperate with federal immigration enforcement efforts. Last week, an illegal immigrant, with seven felony convictions and who had been deported five times, shot and killed a young San Francisco woman while she was walking with her father.

Ponder this: What about a sanctuary city for conservative values?

Imagine if some city in red state America -- Little Rock, Arkansas, Dallas, Texas, or Bowling Green, Kentucky -- decided that it wanted to be a sanctuary city for unborn children and refused to grant business licenses to abortion clinics.

What if a city decided that it was going to be a sanctuary city for the Ten Commandments and displayed them in schools, libraries and the county courthouse?

What if a city decided that it was important for children to have mothers and fathers, declared itself to be a sanctuary city for normal marriage and refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples?

How do you think the left and the media would react to that kind of selective enforcement of the law? Just a thought.
