The First Amendment enrages liberals, at least that portion that protects our religious liberties.
In a conference call with the Family Research Council, putative Republican presidential nominee, Mike Huckabee, sounded the alarm:
“I think it’s fair to say that Christian convictions are under attack as never before. Not just in our lifetime, but ever before in the history of this great Republic. We are moving rapidly toward the criminalization of Christianity, where it’s not simply going to be that a church’s tax exempt status is threatened, but more importantly where there will be criminal charges for a person who defies what will become a new government norm, new legal norm, and that is that homosexual [unintelligible] becomes a protected class. And I don’t think a lot of people have fully comprehended that that is a bridge—we’ve never crossed that before, it would be the same kind of obligation that one would have for people of a race, people of a gender…”
If and when the courts rule that so-called same-sex marriage is a civil right, religion will either need to surrender to the homosexual lobby, or be prepared for legal sanction, as Huckabee asserts:
“If the courts rule that people have a civil right not only to be a homosexual but a civil right to have a homosexual marriage, then a homosexual couple coming to a pastor who believes in biblical marriage who says ‘I can’t perform that wedding’ will now be breaking the law. Let me make clear: It’s not just saying, ‘well, I’m sorry you have a preference.’ No, you will be breaking the law, subject to civil, for sure, and possibly criminal penalties for violating the law, depending on how the law is written in communities, states and in the nation. And that is more than a direct assault on just religious liberty, it doesn’t just say you can’t do something, it says that if you do practice biblical convictions, and you carry them out, and you do what you’ve been led by the spirit of God to do, your behavior will be criminal.”
Just yesterday at the Women in the World Summit in New York, Hillary Clinton was candid in her assertion that religion must bend to the will of liberals on a another social issue:
“deep seated….religious beliefs” around the world “have to be changed” to promote “critical access” to “reproductive health care,” said Ms. Clinton.
When a liberal uses the term “reproductive health care,” of course she is referring to unfettered access to human abortion.
And of course the ‘religious belief’ that most stands up for the pre born in the world is Christianity. Liberal elites are gunning for us.
Christians should prepare for further economic martyrdom and potential jail time if liberals’ preferred religion, Neo-Paganism, continues to extend its reach into the bowels of government.
