Will Bible-Believing Americans Who Oppose Gay Rights Be Treated Like Criminals?

Posted on 06/27/2013 1:59:47 PM PDT by pinochet

If gay rights is to be given the same status as black rights, then we can expect organizations that oppose gay rights and gay marriage to be denied tax exempt status. In 1983, Bob Jones University, which had been admitting blacks since the 1970s, was denied tax exempt status simply because it was officially opposed to interracial marriage.

In California, they are banning evangelical Christian ministries, which give therapy to gays in order to make them give up the gay lifestyle.

KEYWORDS: bible; familyvalues; gayrights; vanity
The status that Christians had in America in the 1950s is now being held by gays, and Christians will be treated in the same manner in which gays were treated in the 1950s.

The gay rights movement does not want tolerance. They want to destroy their enemies.

The American tax code forbids subsidies to religion. But gays will now officially be getting financial benefits from the Federal Government for leading a gay lifestyle.

Denial of tax-exempt status is the best Christians can hope for. The left’s wet dream for us is the gulag.

only a matter of time before the Church has to move underground. Better underground than above ground and having to marry them and let them preach.

I agree that Christian churches and ministries will likely be attacked by both gays and governmental agencies under the guise of being ‘bigoted’. However, the big difference is that gays in the 50’s - and today - are a tiny minority while Christians are a big majority. In addition, homosexual behavior was not constitutionally protected in the 50’s but religious practice - which can include a rejection of homosexual behavior as sinful - is constitutionally protected. Courts will have to decide the outcome but although the media is on a relentless crusade against Christianity, they will ultimately fail, but the fight will be dirty and long-running.

Bob Jones University did not ban interracial dating until an Asian family raised the issue. Their daughter was an international student, her parents did not want her dating outside her culture.

No Pandora isn’t a Lesbian gangbanger.

It’s a reference to opening a box that once opened whatever escapes can never be recovered./

“Bible-Believing Americans Who Oppose Homosexual Rights Will Be Treated Like Criminals, From This Moment On.”

The question is, “How many Bible-Believing Americans will actually oppose homosexual rights?

We can complain all we want; but, what are we going to do about it? Nothing. The regime will incrementalize us into oblivion. First this, then polygamy, then incest & man-child sex and finally, bestiality.

I have seen and lived through this before. When the Catholic Church went nutso on “reform” and “change”, the innovations were imposed, despite protests. The protesters, like myself, were laughed at, ridiculed, ostracized and finally ignored. Having no recourse within the establishment, we struck out on our own, determined to preserve our religion and heritage. It worked until the Rubios and McCains subverted us from within.

Today, the Catholic Church is a haven for perverts, murderers and blasphemers. And those faithful who remain, hoping for a return to what once was, give silent consent to all that goes on.

Now substitute country for religion and you have Acirema today. What will YOU do to get our country back?

For the NSA trolls, FU.

If churches stopped going to government for approval via this tax status they would be free to speak.
This status is away for the government to keep their boots on people.

Very good question.
The Bible beleive Americans say “love the sinner hate the sin”, treating someone with dignity/respect/compassion is not the same as accepting their sin.

While Canada does not have a Bill of Rights, ministers have been prosecuted under hate crime laws for preaching against homosexuality. I expect similar assaults on religious liberty will soon be common in this country as our First Amendment is being trampled.

These article always assume that all opposition to the homosexuals' agenda is religious in nature.

They seem to deliberately ignore the multitudes that just outright reject mentally ill depravity being forced on society.

For me, it has nothing to do with religion, but everything to do with common sense. It takes a monstrous leap of imagination for "normal" males to believe what homos do to each other is just fine and should be accepted as sane behavior.

You are just helping the gay agenda by using their jargon — “gay rights”, as though gays have rights different from anyone else — and their playbook, by equating homosexual behavior with race & opposition to homosexuality with BJU’s repugnant racial discrimination.

Christ said that following him would not be easy and one could face prejudice and pain for doing so —as in ancient times. Now we get a chance to see how many are Sunshine Christians and how many will follow Jesus to the Cross?

Volksverhetzung (hate speech) against the Christians by the Left is supported by the government.

They want to make Conservatives and Christians Reichsangehörigers (subject of the state with no basic civil rights, such as free speech in our Churches).

Somehow, I get the strange feeling of deja vu....

Yep.
My Mom passed away in 1959, raised three kids by herself...
I was eleven.
About the last year of her life (I was older than my siblings), she would have me sit with her at night while she laid out all her fears for the future of the country........
Christians being persecuted, sin becoming acceptable, extreme taxes, and regulation, diminishing of the USA, total government of schools (she said when the government demands kids go to school at two, the end would be near).
There was more or course but I remember it all, she said strengthen your faith is God, be vigilant and protect your brother and sister.
She has been right about everything.

That's exactly right. This is a direct assault on the truth. Anyone in society who refuses to exchange the truth for a lie is despised, demonized, and made into a loathsome criminal.

The government has become dangerously and destructively arrogant because it has been given (and/or has seized) the power to set itself up as god, defining good and evil. So many people and institutions have used government to determine their moral code and ethics policies that the government assumes that you also must do the same. Believe (no matter how false, degraded, perverse, destructive)... or else. The full weight of the system is ready and eager to squash "unbelievers" like a bug. History provides multiple witnesses who have shouted from the rooftops, to no avail.

The government does not define my moral values, nor can it debase my values via government edict. Beastgov is threatened by the existence of those who get their answers and derive their sustenance from another authority.

The rainbow agenda is as Nebuchadnezzar's golden statue. Bow down to it (celebrate and embrace a lie er, "pride") or be cast into the fiery furnace.

“I will not submit. As for me and my house, we will serve The LORD.”

Amen. We’ve read the end of The Book and know where we are headed. We belong to Him.

On the other hand, Satan’s long war and rebellion against God will end with him being thrown into the lake of fire, and he wants to take as many people with him as he can.

This ruling was more proof of that.
