In January of this year, Peter and Hazelmary Bull (a Christian couple) were ordered by to pay damages because they had refused to rent a room to a homosexual couple in their seaside inn. A taxpayer run organization even funded the gay couples court case. The judge said, “social attitudes in Britain had changed”.
But many American Christians expected as much, since Europe has been trending toward more liberalized governments.
Then in March, again in the UK, a Christian couple was banned from foster parenting because when asked by a social worker what their views on homosexuality were, they answered that it was “‘against God’s law and morals”. No matter that they had already fostered 15 children previously.
More recently, the police in Lancashire, UK, told a Christian cafe owner he could no longer display Bible verses inside his own establishment. This order came after a complaint of “insulting” and “homophobic” material being displayed there.
“He says the officers told him that displaying offensive or insulting words is a breach of Section 5 of the Public Order Act, and told him to stop displaying the Bible. The Bible texts are displayed on a TV screen at the back of the café. Mr Murray uses a set of DVDs called the Watchword Bible. The DVDs cycle through the whole of the New Testament verse by verse, with the words appearing on the screen. Mr Murray mutes the audio.”
This sort of thing couldn’t happen in the United States could it?
Yes. It already has. See, Couple Sues a Vermont Inn for Rejecting Gay Wedding
“This is a discrimination case,” he said. “It would be no different if you owned a store and said we don’t want to sell clothes to you or give you food or any other public accommodation.”
Wow, to think you can’t decide as a business owner what your morals are. I’m sure glad we have someone out there to tell us what to do in our own businesses!
And here’s another case, right here in the good ole’ USA:
Christian photographer being tried under New Mexico state anti discrimination laws for declining to photograph a same-sex “commitment ceremony.”
This type of thing has already begun to get some attention in the more conservative media. Maggie Gallagher at National Review had a good writeup on how it’s affecting us as a people. She writes,
“I just returned from interviewing a Toronto sportscaster who was fired for tweeting that he believed “in the true and authentic meaning of marriage.” Next week, I will go to North Carolina to interview another man whose contract was terminated when the HR head of his company found out he had written against gay marriage. “
What’s next you ask?
Simple. Get the children to accept all of this as normal, then there war is over. Adolf Hitler knew all about this:
“When an opponent declares, ‘I will not come over to your side.’ I calmly say, ‘Your child belongs to us already…What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.” – (Adolph Hitler) Speech November 1933, quoted in The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich by William Shirer
California leads the way: California lawmakers pass bill to teach gay history.
“It’s unfair to leave out or exclude an entire portion of our population from history,” said Carolyn Laub, executive director of San Francisco-based Gay-Straight Alliance
The only solution to the problem our nation finds itself in is to pray for a revival of the gospel of Jesus Christ in our land. God is the only one that can change this course we are headed on. Pray hard and pray daily for truth to be proclaimed and accepted.
