It seems we have the following hierarchy:
1. Federal and State law.
2. Personal desires.
more often than not if one's personal desires conflict Federal and
State law, those people simply force a change to Federal or State law.
So perhaps "personal desires" is actually #1? Either way, God is at
least "3rd" and maybe not even that high in many lists.
(March 26, 2105), Indiana Senate Bill 101 was signed into Indiana law.
With that bill, the true nature of where we stand as a Nation was made
crystal clear. Our National stance is this: We don't care what God
Indiana Senate Bill 101, is titled the "Religious Freedom
Restoration Act", or RFRA, and I'm not about to try to summarize it for
you. You can go read it if you are so inclined.
negative reaction to the Bill was swift. The news media jumped
on the bandwagon that the bill was "discriminatory to gays", and oh, we
can't have any of
our gays being called out for their immorality! No! What they do is
NOT immoral, after all, they've forced new laws on all of us mandating
we "accept" their immorality. Now, if you are opposed to their behavior,
YOU are the wrong one - you, you "DISCRIMINATOR!"
I’m wondering is: When did “religious freedom” end up being “bad” -
something that had to be contested? Who decided that “gay rights”
should outweigh “religious freedom"? WHY should I, if I were a
baker, be forced to bake a cake for some same-sex wedding if I want to
follow what God says about homosexuality? Where are MY rights to
uphold the morality of the higher authority?
You see, beyond (actually above) the United States Constitution (which, by the way is supposed to protect the free exercise of one's religion … see
the 1st Amendment), there is an even GREATER "Constitution" which long
ago declared homosexual behavior as prohibited and an "abomination".
This is GOD's law – and for those who don’t appreciate that, I would highly recommend they get Him to change HIS mind first - and then go after Federal and State law. If you manage to change God’s mind, I'll happily change mine! Simple! Here’s the bottom line:
The gays can demand all they want, and they will succeed and hide
behind "rights" and "family values" and "God loves us all" mantras, but
in the end, it changes nothing! In the end, those who chose to obey God will "win" and those who chose otherwise will "lose". (The Bible outlines how we can “win” with God, which is really all that matters….)
