Congratulations to the homosexual community for its same-sex marriage victory. But instead of equality and justice, the U.S Supreme Court has now mandated the polar opposite.
If anyone speak their views in public, they risk losing their jobs, persecution and marginalization as Justice Samuel Alito writes: “I assume that those who cling to old beliefs will be able to whisper their thoughts in the recesses of their homes, but if they repeat those views in public, they will risk being labeled as bigots and treated as such by governments, employers, and schools.”
By using the 14th amendment to bulldoze the 10th, Progressives have shredded the 1st amendment. So, while protections for clergy and worship appear intact, the Obama administration cannot be trusted to not sidestep the ruling or to ignore it entirely.
After all, religious liberty protections are less certain for faith-based charities, schools and hospitals that want to hire and fire based on religious beliefs.
For example, the New York Times’ Mark Oppenheimer is calling for tax exempt laws to be stripped from religious organizations: “Rather than try to rescue tax-exempt status for organizations that dissent from settled public policy on matters of race or sexuality, we need to take a more radical step. It’s time to abolish, or greatly diminish, their tax-exempt statuses.”
Unfortunately, much of the fight over same-sex marriage is about an underlying agenda – which is to ingrain central planning into every part of American society and especially the family, which has moved from multigenerational, to nuclear to broken in the past 100 years. This, along with Obamacare, net neutrality, Common Core, and ‘Agenda 21,’ same-sex marriage is another attempt to destroy the family unit.
Furthermore, Justice Anthony Kennedy’s opinion sets up the argument for ‘plural marriage,’ writing “the right to personal choice regarding marriage is inherent in the concept of individual autonomy,” as he compares the choice of one’s spouse to “choices concerning contraception” or procreation. Politico followed this by running an op-ed calling for the full legalization of polygamy.
“Now that we’ve defined that love and devotion and family isn’t driven by gender alone, why should it be limited to just two individuals?” writes Frederick DeBoer writes. “The most natural advance next for marriage lies in legalized polygamy…”
Forget about God-given liberties, welcome instead to the newest civil rights movement. And with all the calls for banning flags, statues, movies and even buildings, because of a ‘perceived hatred,’ is it any wonder that there’s fear the Bible will soon join that long list of items needing eradication because someone claims it’s filled with ‘hate speech?”
God’s wrath, it’s said, smells like sulfur.
