Bill Muehlenberg of BarbWire gives us that familiar old rhetoric about gay people wanting “special rights” for demanding exactly the same anti-discrimination protections that people like him already have. Oh, and it’s the “gaystapo,” thank you very much.
As I and others have documented countless times now, Barack Hussein Obama is arguably the worst US President ever. He is certainly the most pro-Islam POTUS ever. He is certainly the most pro-abortion POTUS ever. He is certainly the most pro-homosexual POTUS ever. And he is certainly the most anti-Christian POTUS ever.
It cracks me up that they don’t see the contradiction when they claim this. Obama is simultaneously on the side of gay people and women and those Muslim reactionaries who want to kill them and oppress them. Coherence is just so overrated, isn’t it?
Those last two descriptions were again fully on display as Obama on Monday signed into law a “discrimination” order giving homosexuals even more special rights and power, while taking away the rights of ordinary Americans. This is yet another attack on freedom of religion and freedom of conscience, and part of an ongoing campaign to fully silence all those who seek to uphold biblical faith in the public arena.
Special rights! They want special rights! Christians are already protected from discrimination, not only in federal contracting but in federal law for all housing and employment matters, but when gay people want the same thing that’s a “special” right. Seems to me the one who has that right and wants to deny it to others is the one that has the “special” right, but then again I’m a thinker.
Let me offer two further thoughts on this. As I have said elsewhere, it may be the time for Christian groups to pull out altogether from the government gravy train. As Western governments become increasingly secular and hostile to biblical faith, it will continue to make things untenable for faith-based groups.
Whether churches, denominations, parachurch groups, or aid groups, to the extent that they depend fully or in part on government funding, they will increasingly have to bow the knee to Baal. More and more of these laws will be passed, making it more and more difficult for such groups not to compromise, with freedom of religion and freedom of conscience trampled underfoot.
So perhaps the churches need to decide if they will fully trust God, and wean themselves from the government teat.
Now that I agree with.
