Lee Duigon has his usual inane column at BarbWire where he uses some rather odd definitions of terms to create a false dichotomy. The column is titled “How ‘Sexual Liberty’ Devours Real Liberty.” But he seems not to have any idea what either sexual liberty or real liberty is. Witness the opening two paragraphs:
Whenever there is a conflict between “sexual liberty” and religious freedom, “I’m having a hard time coming up with any cases in which religious liberty should win.”
So spoke Chai Feldblum, Georgetown law professor and member of the Obama administration, a commissioner of the EEOC. We understand her to mean that “sexual liberty,” or the freedom to fornicate, must always trump the free exercise of religion.
One has to strain to even imagine a scenario in which the “freedom to fornicate” could possibly be in conflict with the free exercise of religion. How does someone else’s choice of sexual partners affect your religious freedom unless your idea of religious freedom includes the authority to prevent others from having sex in ways that you disapprove of? Of course, that’s exactly what Duigon does mean by freedom of religion. He is a Christian Reconstructionist, which means he thinks the government should put to death gay people, adulterers, fornicators and women who aren’t virgins on their wedding day.
Case in point, and only one of many: the attorney general of the state of Washington has vowed to fine a florist $2,000 a day because she committed the crime of refusing to decorate a homosexual mock marriage event. She, with her little one-shop business, is an enemy of the people. She must be crushed. And just to make sure she gets the message, the ACLU is suing her, too. To stop her from being a bully, I guess.
The homosexual movement is insatiable and unappeasable. Like a fire, it won’t stop after consuming half the log. It’ll go on and on until either someone puts it out or all its fuel is consumed and there’s nothing left to burn.
Here is what we must expect.
The free exercise of the Christian religion will give way to the forced exercise of the secular humanist religion.
The federal government will force churches to perform same-sex “marriage” exercises. Pastors and priests will be punished if they speak against it.
*yawn* Yep, you just nudge me when that actually happens. Until then, you’re either a moron or a demagogue.
