This morning [Friday, June 26, 2015] our Supreme Court made an equivalency statement declaring there is no distinction between the marriage of a man and woman, and that of a man and man.
I feel shame and disgrace, fear for our nation, as well as indignation and resolve. This is not an issue of homosexuality, it is about the undermining of our constitutional integrity. Don’t get sidetracked by talking about homosexuality.
In a sweep the Supreme Court has overturned the timeless consensus that marriage is the union of one man and one woman for life. The marriage referendums of our states have been overturned in a stroke. The decisions of the people are negated. I am angry with the systemic virus drawing us from God, pillaging our nation, and making dark, light – and up, down.
What will be the progressive outcomes? I wrote the following prior to the first election of Mr. Obama. The reality of my prediction is manifesting.
“A few weeks from now what I am about to say may be a hate crime so I feel I need to get it off my chest; ‘I get queasy and sick to my stomach on roller coasters’. There, I said it!
Senator Barack Obama said, ‘I will place the weight of my administration behind the enactment of the Matthew Shepherd Act to outlaw hate crimes and a fully inclusive Employment Nondiscrimination Act.’
A few weeks from now if I say that I get sick to my stomach and nauseated when my homosexual friends talk about their practices I may be prosecuted for hate speech. If my church refuses to hire a staff person because they are homosexual they will be prosecuted.
I wanted to say this now before a lawsuit impoverishes us or my family misses me because I was doing time.”
Decisions have consequence. If you haven’t already asked the “If…then” statements about this Supreme Court decision, now will be the time to anticipate the next steps of corruption to our constitution and nation.
I talked with three men at the gym over the Court’s decision. All of them made glib statements of acquiescence: “It was inevitable.” “I figured that would happen. “What a shame that this is happening to our nation.”
Rise up, O men of God!
Have done with lesser things.
Give heart and mind and soul and strength
To serve the King of kings.
It is high time to become contenders, not weak benders! We must appeal to a Higher Court and take activism to a new level! For the sake of our constitution and nation and the God we once reverenced.
May our nation not acquiesce one more time! May this be the turning point of defiance -by refusing to comply in our States and Cities. It is time for civil disobedience! Let us take them to court, the Highest Court!
“Don’t tread on me!”
