This week the U.S. Supreme Court ruled ‘Gay Marriage’ a legal right in all 50 States. Liberals, Atheists, Agnostics, Anarchists and others hailed this ruling as a major leap forward in our progress, as human beings.
What are we talking about? Turning the world up-side-down for less than 3% of the U.S. population! The Washington Post (no bastion of conservatism) reported in 2013 that the National Institutes of Health estimates that 1.6% of the U.S. population is homosexual. The other forms of aberrant sexual practices pushes that number up to 3.4%.
The U.C.L.A. Law School’s Williams Institute estimated 3.8% in 2011 and the C.D.C. thinks it’s 3% (2013).
The same is true with Atheists. Pew Research reported in 2012 the percentage of atheists in America to be less than 4%. Other polls put that number closer to 2.5%. In the world? 13% [Washington Post WIN/Gallup Poll, 2012]
So…when Supreme Court Justice Antony Scalia says this ruling is a “Threat to American Democracy,” he may actually know what he’s talking about.
Scalia went on to say,… “Today’s decree says that my Ruler, and the Ruler of 320 million Americans coast-to-coast, is a majority of the nine lawyers on the Supreme Court. The opinion in these cases is the furthest extension in fact—and the furthest extension one can even imagine—of the Court’s claimed power to create “liberties” that the Constitution and its Amendments neglect to mention. This practice of constitutional revision by an unelected committee of nine, always accompanied (as it is today) by extravagant praise of liberty, robs the People of the most important liberty they asserted in the Declaration of Independence and won in the Revolution of 1776: the freedom to govern themselves,” Scalia wrote.
Justice Clarence Thomas wrote, “Aside from undermining the political processes that protect our liberty, the majority’s decision threatens the religious liberty our Nation has long sought to protect.”
President Obama called the ruling a “big step in our march toward equality.”
How can there be such a divergence of opinion over such a critical issue? Politics! The tyranny of the 51%. Right now I am typing this blog on a page with a rainbow array of colors across the top. I do not remember seeing this before.
Chicken Little cried: “The sky is falling,” when nothing of a sort was happening. It was his opinion, based on a narrow view and understanding of reality. The ‘noise’ rising from the homosexual community is nothing compared to the thunder from those who seek to destroy American Christian Culture.
What’s so bad about a Christian Culture? Strong Family Unit. Positive Character Qualities. Protection for our Children. The Protestant Work-Ethic. A Strong Economy, based on Real Money. The Recognition of God, as Ruler Over All.
Oops. That’s it, isn’t it? It’s NOT about Equal Rights at all, it’s about submitting ourselves to an Almighty God! The human spirit does not want to BOW!
We are going out of our way (officially) to keep from being too critical of Muslim Anarchy, while seeking, everyday, to criticize, condemn and castigate anything and everything about biblical Christianity.
You remember…. That which made America Great!? That which gave us Hope! That which has kept the world from becoming totally pagan! Western Civilization is The Story of The Bible’s influence over governments. Now you know why it cannot be taught in our Government Schools. Why American History classes want to start with Reconstruction, after the Civil War [which was never actually a Civil War at all… It was about States Rights, not taking over the Federal Government].
It gives a body pause…to see how ready, otherwise intelligent people are, to abandon all the life-preservers even as the ship is beginning to flounder. However, those of us who understand what The Bible is saying, realize this is exactly what the human spirit wants to do! Needs to do!
It’s The Bible, with its objective standards of morality and decency and economics and social structure that is The Problem! We Will Not Have This Man [God] To Rule Over Us!
It remains to be seen how the Majority will be treated, once the Minority Groups have laws to support and protect them from anything they don’t want. I, for one, am hopeful that we will be cast in the role of ‘the minority’ and benefit from all sorts of Rights & Privileges here-to-fore denied us while we were The Majority.
Don’t Hold Your Breath!
ps. Alabama will stop issuing Marriage Licenses June 30, 2015. After that all you can get is a Marriage Contract.
