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

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

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

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

The Homosexual Attack On Christianity

For several years now, homosexuals have made news by suing or filing discrimination complaints against bakers, florists, photographers, bed & breakfasts, newspapers, farm owners and others who chose to maintain their religious freedom to not endorse homosexual marriage by providing services in support of a same-sex wedding. The quest by homosexuals to have their lifestyle mainstreamed and accepted, whether voluntarily or forced, is having some success. But this success is only coming due to leftists judges and ‘human rights’ commissions that deem First Amendment religious objections to homosexual marriage to be discrimination. The mythical constitutional protection against being offended is taking precedence over the First Amendment freedom of religion.

But while some business owners have stuck to their religious principles, which has cost some dearly, others in the Christian community have softened their stance on homosexual marriage. Many church denominations have stated their position on homosexuality to be that it is not sinful and therefore, neither is homosexual marriage. These […] → Keep reading

Lesbian Mayor Targets Pastors Sermons

It seems the day has arrived when pastors in the United States have the content of their sermons targeted by homosexuals. City attorneys in Houston have subpoenaed sermons given by local pastors who are in opposition to an equal rights ordinance that was passed earlier this year.

Religion News Service – Houston has subpoenaed sermons given by local pastors who oppose an equal rights ordinance, according to news reports Tuesday (Oct. 14).

Houston Mayor Annise Parker, who drew headlines for becoming the first openly lesbian mayor of a major American city, led support for the ordinance. The measure bans discrimination among businesses that serve the public, private employers, in housing and in city employment and city contracting.

Under the ordinance, transgender people barred access to a restroom would be able to file a discrimination complaint, one of the hotly contested parts of the ordinance.

The ordinance, which exempted religious institutions, was passed in June, though its implementation has been delayed […] → Keep reading

Legitimizing Perversion: Another Nail in the State Sovereignty Coffin

With this week’s action, or rather the inaction, of the Supreme Court, homosexual marriage is now legal in Wisconsin, Utah, Indiana, Virginia and Oklahoma. By refusing to hear cases from these states the Justices have allowed lower court rulings overturning bans on homosexual marriage to stand.

After the Supreme Court’s inaction on Monday there were thirty states recognizing homosexual marriages. Yesterday, a ruling from the 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals added five more states to the list, and a pending decision in the 6th Circuit could get the number up to 39. Of these 39 states, only six have chosen through the democratic process to recognize homosexual marriages. All the rest have had it forced upon them by leftists in black robes.

With each judicial ruling that legitimizes gay marriage, these judges are telling state populations and legislatures that have passed ballot measures, laws and amendments that their democratic process doesn’t matter and their sovereignty as a state is […] → Keep reading

The Gaystapo Assault On Freedom of Religion

The gaystapo strikes again. Political Realities recently posted about two Christians in New York who own the Liberty Ridge Farm and host events such as weddings and receptions. When two lesbians contacted them about holding their gay wedding on the premises the farm owners declined, based on their Christian convictions against same-sex marriage. The lesbians filed a complaint with the New York Human Rights Commission, which ruled against the Christians and said since the farm is a public accommodation they are not allowed to discriminate against homosexuals. They further ordered the owners, Robert and Cynthia Gifford, to pay a $10,000 fine, give $1,500 to each lesbian and send all their staff to anti-discrimination re-education classes.

And now the Giffords have announced they will “no longer host any wedding ceremonies on their property.” They would rather do that and stay true to their convictions than be compelled by the government to violate their religious principles and host homosexual weddings.

The Blaze […] → Keep reading
