Imperial President Promises Christians: “I Won’t Make You Marry Gays”…

by Steve Ray on June 26, 2013

…he won’t MAKE us marry gays? Oh, how kind of his majesty. So considerate of his subjects, especially us misguided and intolerant Christians. Obama the merciful!

But before you bow in thanks to his Royal Highness beware that his anti-Christian, anti-conservative minions in the IRS might just remove tax-exempt status for any group refusing to marry gay couples all in the name of “eradicating discrimination” in religious education and practice. They’ve already proved their ability to attack anyone who disagrees with their king.

National Cathedral (Episcopalian) in Washington DC

Oh, maybe not today, but His Highness still has 3 1/2 years to do whatever he wants in his kingdom — because he can. The American people are self-absorbed, have short memories and the press defends and “explains” his every pronouncement and wish and ignores his every foible.

And all the while church bells are clanging all over the King’s city of Washington hailing the Supreme Court’s decisions in favor of “gay marriage.” Even the National Cathedral (not Catholic) rang their bells for almost an hour, reveling in the Court’s endorsement of the perversions and abberations of homosexuality.

Catholic churches failed to join in the revelry because they are (tongue in cheek) old fashioned bigots dominated by old men from a past of puritan legalism that refuse to give women equal rights and to allow every sexual abberation to be celebrated as normal.

Soon anything said against the perversion of homosexuality will be considered “hate speech” and it is not unthinkable that priests could be arrested for quoting certain passage from the Bible during Mass. We all may be denied our rights for speaking the truth.

So, I am exaggerating? Hysterical? Reactionary? 

Give me a break! My mother is 92 years old and she doesn’t even recognize her own country any more. In her day the big scandal was Lucy Ricardo sleeping in separate beds in the same room with her husband Ricky. No one would have discussed abortion or homosexuality in polite public. How swiftly things have descended into the base, vulgar and immoral world of 2013 America. And it happened VERY fast!

I am not optimistic for our country. I am convinced we’ve crossed a line of no return. Return, yes, but not to sanity. It is a the return to the paganism, intolerance, and ignorance of the generation preached to by St. Paul over 2,000 years ago. Then it was polytheism (believe in any gods you want); today it is pluralism (believe in any religion or philosophy you want). Everything is relative and equal. No one can dare say THEY know the truth or even that there IS a truth.

Today the Supreme Court — though they would deny it — has put one of the last screws into the coffin of Western Civilization. One of the first screws of course was the legalization of abortion. Legalizing the destruction of human life and then the abolition of the family are the double barrels of a shotgun that has blasted the death nell of civilized society.

America is in critical condition and her coffin is being constructed. I fear for my grandkids. 

What is my view of the future? It is dismal. On one side we have 1 billion Muslims fighting to bring the world under Alah and sharia law; on the other side we have 1 billion Chinese atheist communists who own most of the United States (by buying up our debt, land and enterprises).

And right when we, the “West, the Christian, Democratic, freedom-loving land of opportunity” should be strong enough to resist the two hordes, we are collapsing financially and morally and bowing to the gods of entertainment, relativism, secularism and materialism. Where are we heading? Look at Western Europe — they are leading the decline and we are dutifully following them.

My talk on the decline of the West, the success of the first Christians and how we should follow their blueprint

Is there a remedy? Maybe. Maybe moral, freedom-loving Americans will rise up with a 2nd American Revolution. Maybe the Lord will intervene. Maybe we can re-convert the new pagan world like the Christians converted the old pagan world at the beginning of Christianity. Though I am not hopeful, I am prayerful. I tell my kids to raise my grandchildren to be martyrs.

The Christians of the first three centuries turned the world upside down for Jesus. But they did it as martyrs. Tertullian and St. Augustine said, “The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the Church.” Lord have mercy!

Asked how the rulings will affect the Catholic Church in the United States, Fr. Fessio remarked that they “will call forth saints and scholars who will shine like the stars in the midst of a wicked and perverse generation’. They will also be humiliated and very likely, in time, persecuted. Welcome to the Brave New World.”

The Church never makes a profit. I’m not sure that loss of 501(c) 3 status would be all that dramatic (except in the case of local property tax). It would take the fetters off and permit the real preaching of the gospel.

Lately, I have been re-reading about ancient Rome, from its days as a republic, to its transformation to an empire, to its eventual downfall, and noting the parallels to our country. Last night, I was reading about the First Triumvirate (Caesar, Crassus, and Pompey), and how they rammed through “reforms” in ways contrary to the Roman constitution, using Pompey’s legions (i.e., the force of government) to intimidate their opponents, just as Obama is doing with the I.R.S. A more appropriate phrase than “Thank you Your Majesty!” would be “Hail, Caesar!”

Steve, I am hopeful we can faithfully stand for the Truth. We must never forget Our Mother will never leave us unaided. Thanks to your efforts(tandem with the Holy Spirit) in sharing the Truth with all that you do in educating and inspiring your fellow Christians. You have emboldened us by your witness! Highly recommend one of your Pilgrimages to all those who want to enhance their spiritual life and better articulate the Truth.

It is already “hate-speech ” in Canada. On another but related note there is a concerted effort by governments in this country to push for the sexualisation of young children all under the guise of anti- bullying clubs set up in high schools with the directive that they are there to support gay children.Gay children????? But they are moving toward the establishment of these entities in primary schools-It disturbs millions of us that government is obsessed with the sexuality of our children But this is social change mandated from the top down and directed by powerful interest lobbies. It’s fascist in nature and directive and it brooks no opposition. When the good old USA- home of freedom of speech- falls, then what hope for the rest of the world?

Peter, if churches lost their tax-exempt status, people like me would suffer. We tithe 10% of our income and would not be able to deduct our donations anymore. It would result in a significant increase in our taxes.

I agree with this article 100%. I must say however, don’t you think that there was a lot more problems in America then Lucy Ricardo sleeping in separate beds in the same room with her husband Ricky? I mean wasn’t there a big racism problem and lack of rights for Black folks? Wondering how you would respond to that. thanks!
