Gay Agenda Threatens Christian Business Owners and Employees
How the Gay Agenda is Systematically Discriminating Against Christians
The objective of the gay agenda is to completely stifle the Christian way of life in every way, shape and form. I believe it is the largest threat to Christianity in modern times. It is well funded and relentless and they will not stop until it is virtually impossible to practice fundamental Christian beliefs both in the marketplace and at home. Furthermore, their message of tolerance is a complete red herring. Tolerance is being used to prop open the door while at the same time intolerance is practiced towards anything that thwarts the gay agenda as can be witnessed by the following law suits.
Recently, a police officer in Utah refused to lead the Gay Pride Parade which was assigned to him as part of a policing activity. He asked to be reassigned rather than be put out in front of the parade which he felt would compromise his religious beliefs by giving the appearance of condoning the life-style. He was put on administrative leave and has since resigned due to the relentless harassment he has received.
Previously, in Oregon a baker was sued when he refused to bake a cake for a gay wedding citing religious objections. The investigation concluded that the bakery was not a “religious” organization under the law, (thereby removing it from the protection of the 1st Amendment) and that the business' policy of refusing to make same-sex wedding cakes represents unlawful discrimination based on sexual orientation prohibited by the Oregon Equality Act of 2007. The business was subject to vociferous protests outside their place of business as well as pickets and death threats against their children. So much for tolerance! The family has since closed their shop and are now working from their home. They no longer bake wedding cakes.
Another baker in Lakewood Colorado, Jack Phillips, refused to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple as well. The couple filed a complaint with the states civil rights commission and it found that Phillips had violated the law even though gay marriage is not recognized in the state of Colorado! After he lost his case he was forced to undergo “sensitivity” training or re-education as well as document each and every transaction in order to show that he had not turned away customers based on their sexual orientation. They are considering an appeal and have since stopped making wedding cakes. Meanwhile business is booming from support of the community.
A similar case was brought forth in New Mexico. Elaine Huguenin along with her husband refused to provide photography services for a gay wedding in New Mexico. They were sued. The high court of New Mexico ruled against them after they refused to photograph a gay wedding citing the New Mexico Human Rights Act which prohibits discrimination based on race, creed, gender and sexual orientation to name a but a few. While it is true that Elaine did break the law, the question that has to be asked in this case as well as in the other cases mentioned above is whether these laws are a violation of the 1st Amendment which prohibits the making of any law respecting an establishment of religion, impeding the free exercise of religion, abridging the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the press, interfering with the right to peaceably assemble or prohibiting the petitioning for a government redress of grievances.
There are many other cases like this and I fear there will be many more in the near future.
It seems obvious to me that these “laws” are impeding the free exercise of religion which would therefore make them unconstitutional and therefore void.
Furthermore, since when has a business owner ever been forced to serve people he didn't want to serve? I remember seeing signs in local businesses when I was a child that read “We Reserve the Right to Refuse Service to Anyone” I guess those signs might be worth a pretty penny now that they no longer apply. And why is it that we are seeing all of these lawsuits against Christians and not one lawsuit against a Muslim business? Things that make you go hmmm.
In places like Great Britain it's even worse. Recently, a street preacher, Tony Miano was arrested for proclaiming the biblical message that homosexuality is a sin. He was released after spending several days in jail but has to appear before a judge to answer for his actions.
Moreover, a British boarding house owner and his wife were found guilty of discrimination when they refused to provide a room with a double bed to a gay couple in their home. They had offered to put them up in separate rooms but the couple declined.
Who knows, it may be that in the not to distant future, articles like these will be considered "hate speech" resulting in prosecution and fines. It is not that far fetched since we now have the precedent in which state laws prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation usurp the constitution. It's not unfathomable in light of the recent hoopla over comments made by Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson and Chrome's CEO Brendan Eich's resignation over a political contribution of $1000 to Proposition 8 which dared to define marriage as a union between one man and one woman. In fact just recently Chase Bank in New York has begun questioning their employees to ascertain whether they are an ally of homosexuality (see the link below). What will be done with this information I can only guess. It could lead to dismissals based on civil rights laws. It's coming and it's almost here. Mark my words the Gay Agenda is the biggest threat to Christianity in the United States in our time.
Personally, I believe that we are living in the End Times before Jesus Christ returns. The Bible clearly predicts that the world will become more and more evil as the Day approaches, therefore I don't think that there is much that can be done to stem the rising tide of discrimination against Christians. All that we can do is to refuse to comply in obedience to God and then rejoice as Jesus taught us because we have been allowed to suffer for the sake of the kingdom even if it is in a small way when compared to other believers in history who laid down their lives for the sake of the Gospel.
