Protected! by the First Amendment (We Hope)

“Our mind is right, boss! Our mind is right!”

The California legislature has passed a resolution blaming “religious people”–the key words are “has caused”–for the high rate of suicides among homosexuals, lesbians, and other sexual aberrants (https://thefederalist.com/2019/06/27/ca-legislators-blame-religious-people-high-lgbt-suicide-rates/).

“The Legislature calls upon all Californians to embrace the individual and social benefits [?] of family and community acceptance” of those who practice the homosexual form of fornication. They do not tell us what those “benefits” are.

The reason this is only a resolution and not a law–yet!–is because the First Amendment to our Constitution prohibits any government from ordering the people’s religious beliefs. Without that protection, it’s a sure thing that these tinpot California fascists would be ordering all churches to “affirm” homosexuality as a positive good, and to erase all those sections of the Bible that do not affirm it. And there would be prison time for anyone who failed to obey.

The fact that it really is just about the easiest thing in the world to find a lamebrained liberal “affirming” church that affirms every sexual malpractice known to biology, cuts no ice with the legislature. It’s not enough for them that there are plenty of “gay-affirming” apostate churches. They won’t be satisfied unless all the churches are apostate.

And if they could literally dig their way into our brains and root out all the ideas they disapprove of, they’d do that, too.

  1. I do hope these resolutions go no further and that the Constitution will be honored. I’m still dumbstruck by how quickly the homosexual agenda is moving. It’s frightening to be honest. But God sees all this.

  2. Remember back in the old days of the first couple of centuries of Christianity, when Christians were blamed for everything? And all a Christian had to do to be on the right side of the law was to drop a bit of incense on the flame before the statue of the Divine Emperor — or else be sent to the arena? Remember? Ah, how history does repeat itself.

    1. I would like to see us put more effort into defending our Christian country. That’s what it was founded as, even if we can’t claim that status anymore today.

  3. Good post Lee. Media censorship, political posturing and educational indoctrination = social engineering. Yes, remember how Christians were blamed for everything and also the Jews in Germany – villianized for every social ill.
    It’s happening.

    1. Me, too. I hate looking at the news any more. The violence that is abounding, it seems, between mother and child, between the right and left sides, and so on. It sickens me but the Lord is in control and wants us to continue being his witnesses shining His light and sharing His love.
