We are sadly are a very badly divided country.
Rights from the government and not from God always will cause problems. Look at what the Civil Right laws did for blacks since the 1960’s. It has killed their families. This will do the same for all families.
We need to shore up federal and state laws protecting religious freedom. I would not rely on the 1st Amendment free exercise guaranty, as we all know any leftist judge will water it down and manipulate it to mean whatever he wants it to mean (i.e., nothing).
Start preparing now for the next focus of the communists — destroying those churches which don’t sign onto the gay agenda. And at the same time try and keep real marriage alive in the 37 states that don’t yet have fake marriage.
Weird. I’m still married to my Wife and that still means something to me.
I never wanted the government involved in that equation to begin with.
If it destroys the family, or reduces the Christian influence in society,
he’ll be championing it.
Since drawing the line at one man, one woman, was deemed discriminatory and bigoted,
drawing the line at two people is no less so.
You cannot change the definition of something that God defines.
An organization however formed by man, which adheres to certain principles and beliefs CAN be redefined.... such as the BSA.
Let us make that distinction.
Its OK to steal if you only do it to a few people. And if you are stealing, it is most advantageous to steal from those who have the stuff to make it worthwhile. Duh!
Have you ever noticed that much, or most of what government does is things which would be considered criminal if you did it yourself, or with a group of cooperating friends (call it a gang)? Much of what was considered vice is either taken over by the government (the biggest, toughest gang in the neighborhood), or legalized to please their supporters (if there is no real cash profit involved). Almost all the old rackets are now in government hands: gambling, liquor, counterfeiting, and (coming soon) prostitution. The latter has long been controlled by the police in México. It is licensed in Nevada and many European countries: government as the pimp.
We are in effect being ruled by a large, very complicated, criminal gang.
Now anyone who studies sociology of gangs, knows that there must be some unifying bonds among the members of a gang, so that they know on whom to prey, and whom to trust. In many gangs ethnicity is a unifying factor. This is probably our future, as the country breaks into ethnic and linguistic factions. That is the way it works in Russia.
The rule of law is disintegrating, and only a thin veil of democracy remains: but it is meaningless, without constitutional restraints, which are being swept aside in succession almost daily.
That’s true. But it wouldn’t be the first time God’s faithful were outnumbered.
It’s time to re-read the Bible’s instructions to the “diaspora” (the “dispersed”) and stop trying to fit into society. Others around us will be blessed by our faithfulness to God. (”Ye are the salt of the earth”, “Let your light so shine among men”, etc.)
And what about animal rights?
Excellent post, you took the words right out of my mouth. The Godless didn’t steal marriage — how can they steal the things of God? No, they erected a golden calf and are worshiping it. True marriage is still what it always has been — a blessing from God, not from the State. Anything else is an imitation.
We could very well see increase missionary activity coming from the Christian communites in what is now the “global south natiions” to get the Gospel of Jesus out to America and the west rather.
I see breakup of the USA down the road.l
I await the court case over whether a wealthy person may marry their son/daughter (the man and woman combinations really don't matter). Of course they'd be marrying so that the offspring could inherit their parent's estate tax-free, but that wouldn't matter. I'm eager to hear the twisted logic from the homosexuals as to why that shouldn't be allowed.
"In the end the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it. Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality, was tacitly denied by their philosophy. The heresy of heresies was common sense. And what was terrifying was not that they would kill you for thinking otherwise, but that they might be right. For, after all, how do we know that two and two make four? Or that the force of gravity works? Or that the past is unchangeable? If both the past and the external world exist only in the mind, and if the mind itself is controllable what then?"
-George Orwell, 1984
This country will break up into seperate nations.
See tag line.
Hey! Sofas need lovin too! Don’t be a hater!
