The Land of the Courts and the Home of the Cowards

The Constitution

The hypocrisy of the LGBTQ community and the courts is absolutely amazing.  Why do I say that?  The answer is simple, but before I share it with you, answer this question; “Which is a greater violation of one’s rights, to discriminate against him/her or to subjugate him/her?”  Of course, any rationale person would say discrimination (telling people that you do not want to participate in what they’re doing – nor do you want them participating in what you’re doing) is a lesser offense than subjugation (forcing people to do something against their will).  The former could be summed up with the  slogan “live and let live” — something the left used to champion before they started dominating the bully bench of the courts.  The latter  is an egregious violation of one’s rights.  Ironically, we have come to the place where it is against the law for anyone to discriminate against the LGBTQ community (particularly Christians – we have yet to see a Muslim baker or photographer pulled into the courts for failing to participate in a same-sex ceremony), but it is perfectly acceptable for the LGBTQ community to subjugate those that disagree with them.  Our obsession with the rights of the individual has brought us to the point that, in the name of individual rights, we violate the rights of the majority of our individuals.  So what’s the solution?

The solution is standing up to the courts.  The courts are like a paraplegic king, that is, the only way their bidding is done is if someone else does it for them.  The people of the United States have given the courts this authority and the people have the power to take it back.  As soon as those who are being harassed by secularists and the LGBTQ community decide that they’re no longer going to court, the game is over.  Hypothetically, if communities, local and state law enforcement, and local and state judicial leaders are all on board with standing up to the courts, then what can the courts do?  Arrest you?  Not if the people unite and protect one another from a judicial system that has lost its way.  Remember, the courts are not an “active” body like law enforcement.  Rather, the courts are an ideological body.  They tell people what to do, but they do not have the means to actually do it.  Someone else has to do it for them.  We can peacefully turn this nation around with one swift move… stand up to the courts!  Stop and think about it; are Christian principals really afraid of praying in front of an atheist family?  No, they’re afraid of the courts!  Are Christian bakers and photographers really afraid of the same-sex couple that wants them to bake a cake or take pictures?  No, they’re afraid of the courts!  Are government employees afraid to share their religious beliefs because of people who disagree?  No, they’re afraid of the courts!  When will this nation turn around?  When we stop being the land of the courts and the home of the cowards, and we become what we once were — “the land of the free and the home of the brave!”  The bravest thing Christians can do today is stand up to the Supreme Court of the United States and say, “No!”

    I admire and agree with the stands you’ve taken recently, especially in regards to the gay marriage ruling and the Christian flag post. I pray a hedge of protection will surround you and your group as you fight the “principalities” and “powers” of this world, and “against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Blessings.

  2. DED

    Your definition of “discrimination” (telling people that you do not want to participate in what they’re doing – nor do you want them participating in what you’re doing) seems way off to me. The dictionary definition is: “the unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people, especially on the grounds of race, age, or sex.” When someone opens a business and offers their services to the public, and anti-discrimination laws are in place, that business must offer their services to everyone equally, without regard to race, age, sex, religion, or sexual orientation. So unless there is something written into the law that says that Christians are exempt and are free to discriminate if they really don’t like somebody, then the law needs to be followed. If the law is not followed, then just like any other law, the lawbreaker must face the consequences.

    The business owner is in business to provide a product or service to the public. He shouldn’t be passing moral judgments on his customers. If he is free to discriminate against gay couples because of his religious belief, then I guess it would follow that he should be free to discriminate against anyone that he believes is morally lacking according to his religious beliefs – those customers who are divorced, adulterers or even obese. Or perhaps he should be free to tell an interracial couple that, because it’s against his religious beliefs, he won’t make that wedding cake for them. Would you support the baker in that instance?

    DED seems to not understand Christians are committed to the laws of God first, and the laws of the country second. (Acts 5:29 “Then Peter and the other Apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than man.”) While DED may have a point we must concede to regarding Adulterers, Christians have a Biblical right to disobey secular government laws when it demands we violate a law of God. True, Christians may have to face imprisonment – as did County Clerk Kim Davis in Kentucky when she refused to issue Same-Sex Marriage licenses – but they are not disobeying a law of God when they disobey such laws and accept imprisonment.
    But I agree if Christians would unite and stand up to the Courts, they would back down on some of their demonic-based decisions. There are not enough jails to house every Christian in the United States, including those non-believers who agree such rulings are ridiculous. And I believe a majority of the law enforcement at all levels of government would refuse to honor any court order to arrest Christians, joining them in defiance of the Courts who have exceeded their jurisdiction.
    The question to Christians is, are you willing to stand up to the Courts, even if a Court orders your arrest?
