It’s by design. As I, and others, have repeatedly warned, the establishment of so-called “gay marriage” as a newfangled federal “right,” and the free exercise of religion as guaranteed by the First Amendment simply cannot coexist in harmony. Things diametrically at odds cannot possibly occupy, with any coherence, the same time and space.
The secular left is tripping over itself right now to prove my point. In the wake of last month’s Obergefell v. Hodges opinion – an opinion that somehow divined a top secret “constitutional right” for Patrick Henry to “marry” Henry Patrick – liberals are now demanding, as both Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito predicted, that Christian university’s immediately abandon recognition of, and obedience to, God’s unequivocal natural sexual order, and adopt, instead, the new pagan orthodoxy. – by Matt Barber, 20 July 2015, eaglerising.com/21183
As the Obama administration cracks down on Christian institutions and principles while citing the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment as their supposed justification, the Obama administration conspicuously coddles the religion of Islam in order to display a sort of tolerance to Muslims strictly denied to Christians. Will Christian universities, businesses, churches fold under pressure man or will they stand for God? The blessings from God are for those that endure, not those that wilt like the spineless Lindsey Graham or, equally weak, John Boehner.
Hillary says we have to change our deeply held religious beliefs. We know what she means by that and we should be very concerned by the fact that she said that. On the other hand she is correct in that we need to become more aligned with Yahweh, the one true God. Bill’s wife won’t like that, but that is her problem, not mine. There are a whole lot of people who won’t like that fact but that is their problem, not mine. As for me, I’m going to align myself closer and closer to God.
We in this country (USA), in this generation are, by destiny rather than by choice, the watchmen on the walls of world freedom. We ask, therefore, that we may be worthy of our powers and responsibility, that we may exercise our strength with wisdom and restraint, and that we may achieve for our time and, as long as God permits, peace on earth, goodwill towards all others of goodwill.
Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion…are undermining the solid foundation of morals-based security for the duration of free governments. — Charles Carrol
The Christian religion – its general principles – must ever be regarded among us as the foundation of civil society. — Daniel Webster
Except the Lord keep the city, the watchmen waketh but in vain.
