Homosexuality will lead to Secession?

{This is in response to an article that you can reach by clicking the title of this entry)

Here are the four bullet points that I am addressing:
--A Christian photographer was forced by the New Mexico Civil Rights Commission to pay $6,637 in attorney's costs after she refused to photograph a gay couple's commitment ceremony.
--A psychologist in Georgia was fired after she declined for religious reasons to counsel a lesbian about her relationship.
--Christian fertility doctors in California who refused to artificially inseminate a lesbian patient were barred by the state Supreme Court from invoking their religious beliefs in refusing treatment.
--A Christian student group was not recognized at a University of California law school because it denies membership to anyone practicing sex outside of traditional marriage.

Nay, I argue instead it is the misuse of government by all sides of the political poles that do that.

The problem here, is that these people aren't being allowed to choose who their clients will be, with exception to the last bullet. No one has the right to force anyone to do something they do not want to do, unless that person has been proven guilty in a court of law. That is a basic premise of the once great Republic of the United States.

The first three issues are ridiculous, travesties of justice, and "hate crimes" (a completely brain-dead liberal concept - but applicable here) committed by the courts that let these frivolous lawsuits come to the light of day.

The fourth bullet, however is just one organization not allowing itself to be pressured into doing something it doesn't want to do. The irony is, however, that under the UCMJ (uniformed code of military justice) sex outside of marriage is still punishable yet, in the private sector that isn't the case. Do I agree with the school for ignoring that organization, no. But, it is their right.

Now, we just need to fix the reverse application. This country has swayed so far to "political correctness" that it makes immorality acceptance more important than acknowledging morality.

Truly, though, this reverse discrimination is a result of the Right Wing Christian movement that insisted on moral laws at the national level, thus alienating every non-believer and creating a new movement of anti-Christian people, even within their own ranks. We have seen a decrease in the percentage of people that believe in God as a result of people incorrectly applying their beliefs against the design of our Lord. Many in the conservative movement used their power, convinced Americans that we live in a democracy, not a Republic, and grew this government to a position of utmost power over the states, while making deals with their opponents to get unconstitutional laws passed together.

I have always tried to stay true to my faith in Christ, but I have found myself disgusted by those that forget that God gave man free will. Man must come to God by choice, and no one reserves the right to force him to accept His law when it comes to victimless affronts.

Don't make the mistake of putting words into my mouth and stating that I am for anarchy. God told us that government is to punish wickedness. That works when we punish people who have committed a crime against another. Especially a violent crime. Anything that violates a God given right. Life, Liberty, Pursuit of Happiness, right to Worship, speak our minds, protect ourselves and our towns, right to contract, the right to own property, and on and on.

With that in mind, should we punish someone for being gay? I argue, no. They still have the right to contract and if they want to make their own church and claim marriage - let them. God won't honor their marriage. They are committing the sin of fornication - a sin. No worse and no better than any other sin. A person who gives their body a harmful substance, are they infringing on someone's rights? Their own, perhaps - but that is their choice and their sin. Can we help them by education, yes! Can we reach out to them with the Word of God and try to help them overcome their depression and addiction? Yes, our Lord is that strong!

But, when someone commits an act that interferes with the right or freedom of another then our government, originally the counsel of our neighbors, was and is obligated to get involved. That is the design of a government in a free nation. To protect and uphold the rights of its citizens. Not to pass laws that deny those basic rights and call it security.

Currently our government, at all levels, is in the act of treason against its citizens, from punishing those who choose not to serve a client for whatever reason, those who use tools such as property taxes to prevent true ownership or income taxes to fuel their insane desire to rule us with our own earning, to those who make moral laws suppressing the rights of those who are not interfering with others, and to those who make laws against business in the name of the employed while effectively preventing start-ups from occurring.

Yes, we should be educating against sins and more importantly evangelizing what Christ did for our fellow fallen brothers and sisters, but we cannot legislate heaven on earth. Heaven on earth is also the goal of our socialist "friends". It can never be achieved until Jesus comes back and takes His throne. Let us focus on education and loving our neighbor without condition, as He taught us until then.

Freedom cannot exist if we do not ensure it is for everyone. When a moral majority attempts to force an immoral minority to accept their laws they succeed only in pushing that minority further from the Grace of God. Only once they have been given the spark and a chance to know His love can they begin to voluntarily build within themselves a moral code. Yes, some of them want to do it and keep their sin. That, my friends, in the end is their fallacy, not ours.

We must fight tyranny in all forms and restore the rights of all people. God will separate the chaff from the wheat, not us.
