The Supreme Court will entertain oral arguments on natural marriage versus sodomy-based “marriage” on April 28. It will issue its ruling in June.
If the Supreme Court imposes same-sex “marriage” on the United States in June, it will turn the Bible into Mein Kampf, every Bible-believing pastor and Christian into Bull Connor, every church into Bob Jones University, and the entire First Amendment into confetti.
This is because the only way the Court can find for “marriage” based on what Massachusetts law still calls “the abominable and detestable crime against nature” (you can look it up) would be to treat homosexuality as the biological equivalent of race, and deserving of the same protections.
Anyone who opposes the normalization of homosexuality will be lumped by the Supreme Court together with the Nazis, the KKK, slaveholders, and Aryan supremacists. The Bible, because it regards homosexual conduct as an “abomination” and as something “dishonorable, contrary to nature, (and) shameless” (Romans 1:26-27) will become the equivalent of Mein Kampf.
The Bible will be classified as hate speech from beginning to end, and it will not be long before efforts will be made to ban it in school and public libraries and to forbid the study of it anywhere on college campuses. Most German libraries today carry only heavily redacted versions of Mein Kampf, and it won’t be long before pressure is brought to bear to do the same with the Bible.
Bull Connor was the Democrat sheriff in Birmingham who famously turned fire hoses and police dogs on those pressing for racial equality. If homosexuality is deemed by the Supreme Court to be the equivalent of race, all sincerely devoted followers of Christ will immediately be accused by definition of being as racist, mean-spirited, and bigoted as Mr. Connor.
Bob Jones University, because it banned interracial dating, was stripped of its tax exempt status on the grounds that the United States should make no concessions and grant no favors to racist institutions. Every Bible-believing church in America will be tarred with the same brush. Loud, insistent calls will soon be made to strip tax exempt status from every church and every non-profit ministry which will not embrace homosexuality.
In Sweden, Pastor Ake Green narrowly escaped two years in prison for preaching a sermon on the Bible’s view of homosexuality from his own pulpit in his own church. A street preacher in the UK was recently arrested and detained for declaring that homosexuality is a sin. He was even scolded by the judge for using the wrong verse from Leviticus in his preaching. As a judge, he felt himself perfectly entitled to dictate to this preacher the very content of his sermons. It won’t be long before similar pressure will be brought to bear here in America.
Christian radio stations and networks will eventually be stripped of their tax-exempt status. And since the airwaves are considered the property of the American people, the FCC will soon be pressured to take Christian programming off the airwaves altogether on the grounds that the people’s airwaves cannot be permitted to spew hate, racism and bigotry. Already in Canada, Christian programming is not allowed to deal with the subject of homosexuality at all under threat of termination.
The First Amendment will become empty words on a meaningless page, and its lofty protections of freedom of religion, speech, press, petition and assembly will no longer be available to servants of the Cross. Anyone who thinks I am exaggerating has not been paying attention.
It truly is a parade of horribles, and the parade may begin next Tuesday. Our prayer is no longer “May God save the United States and this honorable Court” but rather “May God save the United States from this honorable Court.”
