Matt Hauge serves as the executive director at Historic Valley Junction. The Historic Valley Junction Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization, with an emphasis on historic preservation, economic development and business growth.

Its mission? Preserve and share Valley Junction’s history, attract and support small businesses and engage and connect the community.

On Sunday, Hauge expressed anti-Christian bigotry.

“I think conservative Christian views are increasingly marginalized,” Hauge wrote. “Problem for them is plenty of the rest of us are fine with that.”

One wonders if a Christian business owner would be just as welcome in Hauge’s Historic Valley Junction. If they’d receive the same support from the board.

For instance, if Hauge had written something like, “I think LGBTQ views are increasingly marginalized. Problem for them is plenty of the rest of us are fine with that.”

Or something like, “I think views commonly held by people of color are increasingly marginalized. Problem for them is plenty of the rest of us are fine with that.”

If he had written something like that, what would the reaction be?

Hauge clearly singled out one group of people based on their religious beliefs and said he is fine with them being marginalized.
