Hate Speech laws of the sort they have in Europe are probably inevitable here as well. And if we don’t already have a Sup Court that would sanction them, we probably will soon enough.

You got that right!

There is only one place (not human) where we can put our faith, and if history is evidence, we should expect persecution for that.

How many of us sinners are really ready? Will we, like Peter, deny Him thrice? I hope not to be put to that test, but if I am, pray that I will pass.

Given the rate of our descent, how much longer can it be?

Let’s see what kind of teeth this legislation has first. As written, it should forever bar any muslim from ever seeking office there, which would be a good thing. If an exception is ever made for any non-Christian (and most major religions do reject homosexuality), then there will be no room for denial that the legislation is intended to make Christianity illegal on “hate speech” grounds.

That has been my argument all along.

Your beliefs will be illegal and unlawful.

How do you outlaw religion that doesn’t conform to the state’s definition of appropriate religion that serves the state’s interest?

They did it directly in the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany.

Gay marriage in the United States does the same job indirectly.

I don’t think we will ever come close to understanding how evil and abominable our government is...I’m not sure we will ever find out in the next world.

Somehow, I think the Mohammedans will never be persecuted for this, only Christians and maybe Orthodox Jews.

Part?

Probably the primary goal.

Criminalization of Christianity.

Foreshadowing of the End.

Stage already set by Anthony Kennedy.

The Federal Government has now officially defined support for traditional marriage as bigotry.

Maybe Christianity will remember that it’s a fighting faith!

Onward, Christian Soldiers

Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus going on before.
Christ, the royal Master, leads against the foe;
Forward into battle see His banners go!

Refrain:
Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus going on before.

At the sign of triumph Satan’s host doth flee;
On then, Christian soldiers, on to victory!
Hell’s foundations quiver at the shout of praise;
Brothers, lift your voices, loud your anthems raise.

Like a mighty army moves the church of God;
Brothers, we are treading where the saints have trod.
We are not divided, all one body we,
One in hope and doctrine, one in charity.

Crowns and thrones may perish, kingdoms rise and wane,
But the church of Jesus constant will remain.
Gates of hell can never ’gainst that church prevail;
We have Christ’s own promise, and that cannot fail.

Onward then, ye people, join our happy throng,
Blend with ours your voices in the triumph song.
Glory, laud, and honor unto Christ the King,
This through countless ages men and angels sing.

Christian beliefs have always been punished as ‘hate speech’ from those who think they are without sin. Homosexuals included, cannot change God’s mind as to what He declares an abomination. The REAL ‘hate speech’ comes from the antagonists(HS)who keep stirring the pot and making it stink.
