Did you know that being forced to act against your religious beliefs is “the price of citizenship” in America? It must be true: a federal judge says so. ( http://www.redstate.com/2013/08/22/losing-the-battle-winning/ )
This he said in regard to a case in New Mexico, in which the state punished a Christian photographer–she and her husband are a mom-and-pop business–for not obeying a demand by a lesbian to film her mockery of a marriage. Religious beliefs, said the judge, are always trumped by “tolerance.”
There is no give and take here. Homosexuals win, Christians lose: every single time. This is what our ruling class calls “tolerance.” To be “tolerant,” to be a “citizen,” means to do things you believe to be sin whenever a homosexual or a bureaucrat or a judge demands it of you.
I am a writer. I write books for money. What if a homosexual were to say to me, “I will pay you to write a novel about two men falling in love and [censored] each other till the cows come home”? Naturally, I would consider that a monstrous abuse of my God-given talent, and I would refuse. I would have to refuse, just as I would refuse to worship an image of a president. Would the devouring state wipe me out for that?
In a New York minute, brethren. In a New York minute.
