To fully advance the causes of radical feminism, abortion-on-demand, unfettered sexual license, âgay marriageâ and the like, the pagan left must do away with religious free exercise altogether. Under the guise of âanti-discrimination,â Christians today face discrimination at unprecedented levels.
Though Iâm mildly pleased that the Supreme Court is not quite ready to take gasoline to both the First Amendment and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), signed into law by Bill Clinton, a liberal, in 1993, I am alarmed, and so too should you be, that only 56 percent of our sitting U.S. Supreme Court justices are still willing to give the U.S. Constitution a modicum of the respect, recognition and compliance it not only deserves, but requires.
Case in point: Remember Jack Phillips, the Christian baker in Colorado? He exercised his First Amendment religious rights and politely declined to bake a âweddingâ cake for a homosexual civil union. Coloradoâs âcivil rightsâ Star ChamberÂ recently orderedÂ Mr. Phillips to deny his faith and bake these fake cakes, âshut downâ orÂ face prison.
God was the first defender of natural marriage. After all, he designed it. Jesus reiterated that design, making it abundantly clear and beyond refutation that marriage is, always has been and always will be the union of the binary opposite, magnificently different male and female of the human creation.
At worst, liberalism denies the very existence of God in the forms of atheism and secularism, while, at best, it adopts that wonderfully âinclusiveâ blasphemy called religious pluralism. Pluralism presumes to give the false gods of false religions equal footing and denies Christ as He defined Himself: âI am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through meâ (John 14:6). Liberal âChristianityâ falls under this category. Itâs pluralism with a Christian stamp.
To be sure, none of us are without sin and certainly none are less valuable in Godâs eyes than any other. But Christ did command us to repent of our sins and to âgo and sin no more.â Not only has Robinson refused to repent of his homosexual behavior, which is unambiguously condemned throughout both the Old and New Testaments as sexual sin, he has further rebelled against God by leading astray countless of his flock who suffer from similar temptation.
Consider, for instance,Â a study publishedÂ in the left-leaning Archives of Sexual Behavior of over 200 convicted pedophiles and pederasts. It found that â86 percent of offenders against males described themselves as homosexual or bisexual.â This demonstrates, as notes Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council, that âhomosexual or bisexual men are approximately 10 times more likely to molest children than heterosexual men.â
They were always deadly serious about criminalizing Christianity and killing free speech, but now the American left has stopped pretending otherwise. In a recent column titled,Â âWhy Are They Called âHomofascistsâ? Hereâs Why,âÂ I wrote that âprogressive,â âChristian-hating fascistsâ â but I repeat myself â are âhell-bent on criminalizing Christianity and pushing to the fringes anyone who publicly acknowledges natural human sexuality and the age-old, immutable institution of legitimate marriage as created by God.â
The public career beheading of former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich at the hands of pagan sexual jihadists, coupled with an escalating epidemic of Christian business owners facing harsh government persecution for merely living out their faith, has startled awake an America lulled to sleep by the leftâs intentionally deceptive, yet oh-so-sweet sounding serenade of âequality, tolerance and diversity.â
In a blunt and provocatively titled, though well-reasoned post, submitted shortly after Wednesdayâs shooting, Gateway Punditâs Jim Hoft charged: âObama Is Responsible for Latest Fort Hood Murders â Still a Gun-Free Zone.â
