Houston, We Have A Problem!

Q. Did The Supreme Court Give Homosexuals Freedom To Violate Others’ Constitutional Rights?
A. No, but some people obviously believe that.

I’m not sure if any of you have seen this on the news, but if you even happen to hop on any news site or television station for 5 minutes then you’ve probably seen an article involving Houston’s openly gay mayor, Annise Parker, and her recent stunt. In a clear violation of 1st Amendment rights, she has subpoenaed local church pastors’ sermons on homosexuality and any remarks they’ve made with regard to homosexuality.

Before I go any further, let me tell you what this post is not. This is NOT some post about homosexuality. It is NOT about gay rights. It is NOT about a religious stance on an issue. So don’t flip out and go on some tangent on judging, intolerance, Christianity, etc. What this post IS about is an attack on Christians and an attack on the Constitution of the United States of America AND the fact that Annise Parker has clearly lost her mind.

When I first saw this article pop up on my newsfeed, I laughed. Then I realized it wasn’t a joke when I began to read it. Ever since the Supreme Court’s decision to not make a decision and to take a hands-off approach to “same-sex marriage” bans, the outrageous liberal attacks have begun. Parker’s is only one of many. Our constitutional rights are being stripped away more and more every day. What’s going on in the States is eerily similar to what has been transpiring in Canada the last several years. For those of you that don’t know, Canada has criminalized free speech as “hate speech” to suppress more traditional and Christian values. It’s absolutely insane!

Get ready for this… TODAY I just read a report that the city of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho is threatening a Christian couple to marry same-sex couples in their chapel or face 180 days of jail time and a $1,000 fine for each day they refuse to marry a same-sex couple. Don’t believe me? Read for yourself: (City threatens to arrest ministers who refuse to perform same-sex weddings)

It doesn’t matter which side of the fence you are on regarding gay rights. What does matter is if you even want rights anymore. We have seen attacks to the 2nd Amendment by this administration and now we are seeing widespread attacks on the 1st Amendment. If we do not have leaders speaking out against these attacks then we are going to allow the erosion of our constitutional rights. If we sit back and do nothing, we will succumb to a society that centers around oppressing Christians and Christian values.

Side note: I do find it interestingly convenient how gay-rights activists will blast a conservative with intolerance comments when it suits them, then when the situation is flipped intolerance is the last thing on their mind. We are asked by activists to not be intolerant of individual’s sexual preferences and their values. Why then must they not be tolerant of those that have opposing values?

Tip of the day… we don’t have to “tolerate” things that are good. We don’t eat a good meal or watch a good movie and tell our friends, “I tolerated it.” Keep that in mind next time someone tells you that you’re intolerant.

    This IS attention getting. Our country is founded on freedom of choice, yet the majority seem to feel fear far more frequently instead. So, by the standard they are trying to set in Idaho…play along with me…if marijuana were legalized, would one be penalised for refusing to partake of it? Of course not, at least I cannot fathom that. What about those who feel strongly about eating a plant based diet only…should they be punished for not eating animal products? How about a conservative Jewish, are they forced to eat meat and dairy in the same meal? Preposterous! So my real question is this, aside from being a responsible voter, what other actions might you suggest to a concerned citizen takes to prevent our liberties from being minimized?

    Oh James, I do SO COMPLETELY understand your frustration and anger and disappointment at the NERVE of some people who, based on their own individual beliefs, attempt to force their non-Christian views onto good Christian people like these Ministers and who they marry… Oh, wait… that is PRECISELY what Chriatians have been doing to the rights and freedoms and personal decisions of non-Christians in this country since its inception!

    How can you cry foul and lambast he who demands a minister marry a couple against the minister’s religious beliefs; when that same minister and congregation are voting to prohibit the sale of birth control devices to everyone in the state, thereby limiting the right of a non-Christian woman to exercise her personal right to choose and simultaneously forcing your Christian mores and values upon her decision?

    Blatantly hypocritical, no?

        I’m pointing out the simple fact that there is NO difference between whether a city forces some Christians to do something their religion prohibits; or a Christian congregation forces their religious views on persons of different or no religion, be it contraception, abortion, gay marriage, etc. However, you appear to be concerned only when YOUR group of people are being forced to do something they don’t believe. What about when your people force others to do what they don’t believe? If you decry the one, you must be sympathetic to the other 🙂

      2. Bro, I’m talking about “rights” within our constitution being violated. You’re talking about contraception, abortion, etc. (all things/”non-rights” not within our constitution).
