In the aftermath of Friday’s Supreme Court decision to overturn the will of the people in the 13 remaining states whose definition of marriage remained “one man and one woman,” we must recognize the way this end was achieved as abject cowardice.
The entire premise of the decision was that it’s government’s responsibility to grant its citizens “liberty” and “dignity.” Neither of those things are given by government, and in fact only one can be taken away: liberty.
By pursuing a court-imposed solution for a profoundly social issue, the same-sex activist movement resorted to poltroonery in the face of a cause that could very well have been won, over time, at the polls–or not. Long ago, gay rights leaders identified Bible-believing Christians as their primary foe, which makes sense, since the Bible is very black-and-white on the issue.
In places like Saudi Arabia, where homosexuals are jailed, or Syria, where the Islamic State throws them off buildings, our capitulation to legal chicanery is seen as weakness, and rightly so.
There are 79 countries where homosexuality is illegal. Yet gay activists are happily dancing on Christians’ First Amendment graves when they should be joining together with Christians in standing against radical Islam and its brand of totalitarian violence.
The same liberals who rejoice at Friday’s decision run in fear of Muslim retaliation, which, unlike Christian invective, comes through the barrel of a Kalashnikov. They would deny Christians the voice to speak out, while making excuses for Islamic terrorism.
Judging by their words and actions, one would conclude that Christians hate because the Bible teaches hatred, but the Koran is a peaceful text promoting a peaceful religion, which a few violent kooks have spoiled. No serious person actually believes this, so why continue such a patently false narrative?
As even newspapers shut down debate on the issue, one conservative calls out people who support the liberal narrative for what they are:
At the very expensive price of our free speech, the White House (and by its endorsement of the Obama administration’s agenda, three fifths of the Supreme Court) has sold us up the river to achieve a quick end, regardless of the means used to get there.
If this “victory” for human rights–as the gay activists frame it–is to remain permanent and not supplanted by a more pernicious erosion of our nation’s foundation of liberty, Americans must stand up, together, and stand against evil.
Gay activists must put away their objections to Christians calling their lifestyle Biblical sin (because the Bible says it is), and Christians need to stop demonizing homosexuals who are fallen members of the human race, no better or worse than anyone else, whose dignity and respect come from God, not the government.
That, friends, would be considered brave.
