Gaystapo Continues Assault On Christianity

I’ve written numerous posts here in the last few years about the homosexual assault on Christianity and the success the Gaystapo is having with chipping away at the First Amendment right to the free exercise of religion.  Conservative Christianity is all that stands between them and the complete mainstreaming of their abominable lifestyles.  They have even acknowledged this fact.  Naturally, the Gaystapo will use every resource possible in their assault on conservative Christianity.  Every day it seems like there is something new that is being done somewhere in our country to further the homosexual war on Christianity.  With the Supreme Court’s legalization of homosexual marriage the assaults have been increasing.  I have no doubt it will get worse.  Let’s look at some of the things they have been up to lately.

If you’ve been reading my blog very long then you are well aware of the bakers in Oregon who found themselves under attack by the Oregon Bureau of Labor […] → Keep reading

Obama Rebukes Jesus

Jesus was wrong. So says His Excellency Barack the 1st.

At the Catholic-Evangelical Leadership Summit yesterday, Obama quotes part of a verse from the Gospel of Matthew in a manner directly opposite of what Jesus is quoted as having said. I’m sure the Obama worshippers will claim his remark was taken out of context, so here is a transcript of what he said.

“One of the things I’m always concerned about is cynicism,” Obama said. “My chief of staff, Denis McDonough, we take walks around the South Lawn, usually when the weather is good. And a lot of it is policy talk, sometimes it’s just talk about values. And one of our favorite sayings is our job is to guard against cynicism, particularly in this town. And I think it’s important for us to guard against cynicism and not buy the idea that the poor will always be with us and there’s nothing we can do, because there’s a […] → Keep reading

Drawing Muhammad – First Amendment or Unnecessarily Offensive?

Recent events in Garland, Texas have created a media firestorm over the issue of whether or not people should be drawing cartoons of Muhammad. In case you missed it, political activist Pamela Geller organized a “Jihad Watch Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest” at which two terrorists opened fire on a security guard before being shot and killed by police. Some say Geller was within her First Amendment rights to have the event and others, mostly leftists and media, say she was wrong to do it, was responsible for the violence and should apologize.

Geller planned for the possibility of violence, allocating “thousands of dollars” for security and police at the event, just in case someone tried to duplicate the massacre at the offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in France last January. As it turns out, it was money well spent. One security guard was wounded in the ankle before police officers shot and killed the well-armed terrorists. They […] → Keep reading

Criminalizing Christianity

With the Supreme Court decision over the homosexual marriage issue expected next month, it could potentially be a landmark decision. The Justices have said their decision will rest on these questions:

Is marriage based on biology or feelings? Who should decide whether to redefine an institution that stretches back for “millennia”? If justices begin tampering with the historically exclusive definition of marriage as the lifelong union of a man and a woman, what would prevent future courts from imposing polygamy, incest or pedophilia-based marriage on the nation?

Justice Scalia noted that if the Court rules that homosexual marriage is a constitutional right, then pastors, rabbis, priests and imams will be forced to perform such ceremonies or face state penalties.

Lifesite – Justice Scalia repeatedly suggested that once a constitutional right to marry by same-sex couples was enshrined by the court, a member of the clergy could not be given civil marriage powers by the state unless he agreed to perform […] → Keep reading

Freedom of Religion Is No Longer Free

Last Friday the owners of the Sweet Cakes by Melissa bakery in Oregon learned the price of freedom of religion – $135,000. That’s the amount that Aaron and Melissa Klein have been ordered to pay to the two lesbians who requested the Kleins make a cake for their lesbian wedding. The Kleins declined on the grounds that doing so would be a violation of their religious beliefs. The lesbians complained to the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries that the cake refusal was “mental rape” and that the Kleins had hurt their feelings.

Christian News – According to the Daily Signal, the two women, who have been identified as Rachel Cryer and Laurel Bowman, submitted individual lists of just under 100 aspects of suffering in order to receive the damages. They included “mental rape,” “distrust of men,” “distrust of former friends,” “discomfort,” “high blood pressure,” “impaired digestion,” “loss of appetite,” “migraine headaches,” “loss of pride,” “resumption of smoking habit,” “shock” […] → Keep reading

Homosexuals: Conservative Christianity Is Our Last Enemy To Defeat

Christian life in America is changing and not for the better. No, I will not say Christians are being persecuted in our country. Not yet, anyway. After reading of the treatment Christians are receiving in the Middle East from ISIS and other Muslim murderers, anyone claiming that Christians in America are being persecuted doesn’t understand what true persecution is. Christians in America are not being persecuted, but they are most definitely being subjected to discrimination, harassment and prosecution, with almost all of it coming because of the Christian view that homosexuality is an abominable sin.

The Christian opposition to homosexual marriage has resulted in a cultural civil war with the media, the homosexuals and the rest of the liberals on one side and the Christians on the other side. With a few exceptions, the Republican apparatus has been weak in their support of religious liberty. Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson sent a religious freedom bill back to the legislature to be […] → Keep reading

Where Are the ‘No Gays Allowed’ Signs?

The huge brouhaha in Indiana over the last few days has all been a manufactured event designed to paint people with religious beliefs as extremists who want to segregate homosexuals from the general public. The left and the media have both taken a page directly from the Alinsky playbook and have launched attack after attack on Indiana, their legislature and governor and anyone who supports religious freedom legislation. In short, the legislation protects a citizen or business owner’s right to decide with whom to do business and to choose not to if doing so would violate their religious beliefs.

Naturally, the media and the left have pounced upon this legislation as being the next best thing to rounding up homosexuals and putting them in a ghetto, but the truth of it is that the legislation mentions homosexuals exactly zero times. The NCAA, Angie’s List, Salesforce.com and other entities have all announced either displeasure with the new law or that they […] → Keep reading

More Churches Endorse Homosexuality

Last week the Presbyterian Church USA (not to be confused with the Presbyterian Church In America) voted to amend its constitution to allow homosexual marriages. A statement was added to officially recognize “a commitment between two people,” making the Presbyterian Church USA the largest protestant church to approve homosexual marriage.

The move was endorsed last summer by the church’s General Assembly, but the formal change required approval from a majority of the church’s districts. Of the 171 districts, the 86th vote for the change came last week from a district in New Jersey. The change will take effect on June 21. Not all members are happy with the change and this was apparently anticipated by whoever wrote the language to amend the church constitution. It includes a provision stating that clergy cannot be compelled to preside at homosexual weddings or host a homosexual wedding ceremony on church grounds.

The Mormon Church is also changing their position on homosexual marriage. The […] → Keep reading

Christian Values In Business

The transformation of our society has made it inadvisable for Christians to enter into certain professions, lest they be forced to violate their religious principles or face the wrath of the heathens and the government (redundant?) for not doing so. I’m speaking, of course, about the multitude of incidents of late wherein a business owner providing services related to weddings has refused upon principles of Christianity to fulfill a request to do so due to the marriage being of two homosexuals. Cake makers, florists, wedding venue owners and photographers in various states around our nation have been castigated, harassed, protested, shut down, sued and had discrimination complaints filed on them for refusing to provide services in support of homosexual weddings. Some have had to close their businesses; some have been fined; some have been ordered to pay thousands of dollars to the ‘wronged’ homosexuals; and some are still going through the process of having their lives and businesses destroyed because […] → Keep reading

Religious Liberty Under Assault in Oregon

Well over a year ago I wrote a post about Aaron and Melissa Klein, the owners of Sweet Cakes By Melissa in Oregon, who decided to close their shop after continual harassment from homosexuals and their supporters. If you’re not familiar with their story, the Kleins declined to make a wedding cake for a lesbian couple, citing their Christian beliefs that marriage should be between a man and a woman. In addition to the harassment the Kleins received, their vendors were also harassed into no longer doing business with the Kleins, resulting in a great loss of sales. Their attorney referred to it as “economic terrorism.” The Kleins closed their shop but said they would continue to take orders and operate from their home.

The lesbians who had their feelings hurt filed a discrimination complaint against the Kleins. Last week an administrative law judge with Oregon’s Bureau of Labor and Industries ruled that the Kleins were in violation of the […] → Keep reading
