It is bad enough that lawmakers have allowed the courts to pilfer Christians for their beliefs. The LGBT agenda has taken aim at Christians and found that they were defenseless against a pro-sodomite court system. This has cost Christians, who refused to compromise and conform, thousands of dollars.
But most of the threatening and hate by this group has been veiled. They have not openly threatened lawmakers or opponents who have sought to fight for the liberty the Constitution guarantees. But with the lack of public outrage at these clear cases of persecution, the sodomites have gotten bolder.
An openly gay Missouri state representative told a Farm Bureau staff member that her support for a pro-marriage amendment to the state constitution could result in a loss of federal subsidies to her organization and to the state’s farmers.
There is no way to describe this kind of speech other than a threat. It is open and meant to stop this person from supporting what she thinks is right. It is this kind of intimidation that this country has long stood against.
“There’s no room in public policy for elected officials issuing threats to
constituent groups,” said Ryan Johnson, president of Missouri Alliance for Freedom, in a statement to Breitbart News. “I hope that as the debate on religious liberty continues in Missouri we won’t see any future instances of such behavior.”
So what did the representative say?
“I was told, and I don’t know if it’s true or not, that farmers get a lot of federal subsidies. Is there any fear that if we do something like this, that the next thing you know the Department of A is going to knock on the door and say, “Wait a minute, you might not be eligible for all these subsidies because of what this constitutional amendment does.”
So, once again, the States’ decision to take federal funds has sold them into slavery. And it is not lost on the sodomite lobby. They are glad to use this advantage to browbeat their opponents into submission.
So much for religious freedom, Missouri.
